8 oz. Burger Bar In Miami Beach, Florida

I had wanted to eat at 8oz. Burger Bar last week but I was still recovering from my trip to Atlanta. Now semi-recovered, my wife was not able to accompany me so my sister Michelle went instead. With no wifey around, I was now free to order away. For starters we ordered their Kobe Beef Corn Dogs and Buffalo Drumettes. Great batter on the corn dogs and the purple mustard, which tasted great were a nice combo. We liked the Buffalo Drumettes but found the blue cheese sauce served on the side to be odd tasting, not bad just odd.

Michelle orders herself a Thai Gimlet whatever the hell that is and she likes it. As Michelle places her order, our server Christy proceeds to let her know that the Turkey Burger has Turkey. An amazing revelation ladies and gentleman. Just kidding. She did actually say that but as she caught her mistake, it was too late. Actually Christy was a blast, a bad dancer but a blast.

Getting back to the task at hand, food. Michelle has her Turkey Burger with Cave Aged Gruyere Cheese & Bacon. I order my 8oz. Beef Burger the exact same way. The beef well…. “Meat is ground in-house then aged in a Himalayan salt-tiled meat locker before being grilled on live oak”.

We also try the Short Rib Grilled Cheese (Onion Marmalade, Bel Paese Cheese). Bel Paese where have you been all my life? As well as sides of Kennebec Fries, Stout Battered Onion Rings & Truffled Potato Skins.

Michelle said that this was the best Turkey Burger she’s ever had. She was particularly in love with the escarole on it. I really liked the Horseradish Dijonaise served with her burger. My burger tasted great and the Gruyere Cheese was definitely the right choice.

Truffle Potato Skins

The Short Rib Grilled Cheese and Truffled Potato Skins were so good we took an order to go for our dad to try. The Kennebec Fries were delicious and the Stout Battered Onion Rings although good were probably my least favorite item. What did I wash all this down with? A Kahlua shake, good stuff.

I did learn a few things on this outing. 1) I definitely ordered way too many things 2) The amount of combinations that can be made between Condiments, Cheeses, Sauces and Extras may keep me coming back here for quite a while. And 3) Always remember, the Turkey Burger has turkey.

    I can never not read one of your reviews and leave without wanting something. Good review and I’m definitely heading out there soon.

    Haha, my dancing isn’t bad, it’s just quirky! And you guys were the most fun I had all day (minus the whole turkey on your turkey burger fiasco ;)). Lots of love and hope to see you again soon, Christy xx

    I think everything was spot-on. I love this place. The only thing I disagreed with was the part about the onion rings. I do not even LIKE onion rings, but I AM IN LOVE with the ones at 8 oz. they’re so lightly battered, perfectly lightly fried… it’s like the “best-fried-calamari-you’ve- ever-had” version of onion rings. If that makes any sense????

    that’s a lot of food man…I bet you can start a separate blog describing all the sideways glances you get when you’re ordering.

    The burgers at 8 oz. are great! I agree with you on the onion rings. They were my least favorite thing.

    For the price, this burger is overrated.

    $23 for a burger, fries and coke?


    Yes, I had bacon and cheese on it, but still.
