When the popular burger restaurant A&G closed up shop abruptly, all of its fans were disappointed. Then, everyone took a collective sigh of relief when 109 Burger Joint (646 SW 109 Avenue) took over the location.
They were able to turn those frowns upside down (yes, I borrowed that line from Lionel Playworld).
Because of its proximity to FIU, 109 Burger Joint is a hotbed for college students. In other words, their craft and local beer selection are strong.
Burgers You Say?
The menu has over 15 different eight-ounce (half-pound) specialty burgers with names like The Blue Moon, America, and The Panther. Since they’re located in a very Nicaraguan-heavy part of Miami, the super-popular Nica Burger (Angus patty w/fried cheese, mild jalapeño cream sauce, fried sweet plantains & Nicaraguan-style coleslaw) has made a following for itself.
There’s also their signature burger, the 109 Super Burger. This over-the-top creation includes American cheese, applewood smoked bacon, guava sauce, mozzarella sticks, onion rings, french fries, and mini mac balls on a 1/2 pound burger patty. If you like burgers with a bunch of toppings, then this is your guy.
My favorite is the Blue Moon Burger (Blue Moon beer aged patty w/blue cheese crumbles, sautéed onions, mushroom orange mayo, & pickles), and I’m going to let you in on a little secret.
When you order your burger, ask for the patties to be Americanized. You will then get two 4 oz. patties instead of one 8 oz so that your chargrilled burger will taste even smokier.
