Morton’s – Coral Gables, Florida

Since Morton’s is less than a block from where I to work, you’d think I’d have checked it out by now. I came into Morton’s with very high expectations since I heard that their Mini Burgers were really good. What I didn’t know was that the Mini Burgers are only served at their bar from 5PM on and it was 3PM right now. My friend Jarce and I decide to just go ahead and sit down in the dining area. The service at this place is top notch.

We’re brought a loaf of Onion Bread that is the size of a brain in those old black & white horror movies. It ‘s warm, fresh and served with a thick pat of Butter. “Yes, we’d both like to go with Morton’s Prime Sirloin Burger”, and I also ordered a Macaroni & Cheese side.

Mac N Cheese

The Mac N Cheese was really creamy plus it had a little bit of a crust on top. So, we’re served the Burgers and I can’t wait to bite into this thing. I’m thinking, Morton’s is known for their Steaks so this thing is going to be killer.

It’s overloaded with Mushrooms, Bacon. One bite into this thing should send me into Burger Nirvana, unfortunately, it put me into Burger Collective Soul (you had to see the grunge reference coming). It was just an average tasting Burger with some really well-done toppings. Maybe…we put this place up on a pedestal without even trying their food….. maybe we did, but one thing’s for sure if you’re at Morton’s I would suggest you lead with the Steak.

    an interesting lesson mr. beast. we should certainly never judge a book by its cover.

    i’ve never had a burger at Morton’s but i do find the cowboy rib-eye to be incredibly satisfying.

    is steakbeast.com coming soon??

    Just yesterday I was talking to my wife as we drove to Salmon-Salmon about your burger blog. She said we need to check out Morton's since everyone in her office says they have the best burgers. I told her you had reviewed the place and I would make a point of reading it today.

    She's not going to be happy when I relate your review. Then again, everyone in her office is a female, under 30 and weigh less than 110 pounds. They likely don't know a lot about good burgers.

    Thanks for the heads-up.

    I hear the mini burgers on the bar menu are better though.
