You wanna talk about a restaurant that I’ve worked my way across the entire menu multiple times, then Burger & Beer Joint is that spot. The new location in Brickell picks up where the SoBe location left off with its cool decor and music influenced Burger names and creations. I’m particularly excited about it cause it cuts my drive time in half, time that could be spent eating and not stuck in Miami traffic.
Everything on the snack side ranges from good to great but if I needed to pick out two standouts it’d be the Mushroom Fries and the Crispy Dill Pickles. Both are breaded, deep fried and served with a side of Buttermilk Ranch and yes, both are excellent.
If you’re a first timer at Burger & Beer Joint, you should ease yourself in with their Thunder Road Burger. It’s their version of a BBQ Burger with smoked Pork Belly Bacon, American Cheese & BBQ Sauce. If you can handle the heat, then Sympathy for the Devil is your guy with its Chili, Cheddar Cheese, Pickled Jalapeños, Sour Cream, & Habanero Sauce.
On this occasion, I was channeling Glenn Frey so I ordered the Hotel California (Guacamole, Cheddar Cheese, Grilled Onions, Jalapeño Relish, Cilantro Sour Cream & a sunny side up Fried Egg). It’s a well rounded Burger and their 1/2 lb. Burger Patty is just killer. Don’t overlook this one when you’re deciding what to eat.
I’m not much of a dessert dude and I’m no fan of Twinkies, I don’t really get them. BUT….deep fried Twinkies are a different thing altogether. B&B serves them with a few scoops of Vanilla Ice Cream, dare to share at your own risk.
It’s also a great place to sit at the bar and have a few Beers or drinks if that’s your thing. Me? I’ll stick to the Mushroom Fries & Burgers.
