The Nominees for The Burgie Awards 2013

My 4th Annual Awards show, The Burgies 2013 will be taking on February 2nd, 2013 at Huizenga Plaza in Ft. Lauderdale. We’ll have the full details of all participating Restaurants, Food Trucks and Artisan Food Vendors very soon.

For now, check out the Nominees for the 2013 Burgie Awards below. Each category has one spot that will be decided by you the reader. All you have to do is write in to and let us know which Restaurant/Food Truck you feel should be added to which category. Whoever gets the most emails endorsing them will fill the last spot. Last day to send in nominations is Wednesday October 31st.

A couple of things to remember. Whoever you nominate must have been Open for at least the last 6 months. We’re not gonna have any noobs sneak in here and have all their college roommates vote them in.

    There is no way Shake Shack even belongs on the Best Burger nominations. Really? How much more overrated could they be?

        Come on, it’s simple… Bocaditos! And before you start saying stupid things like “Oh, well he’s just the owner leaving a comment.”
        Maybe… Or maybe this is actually me, Sef, the Burger Beast, Destroyer of Worlds expressing my true love under the guise of anonymity.
        That Burgidito was #YUMMY!!!

    anon29 you are nuts.  Shake is best burger in town followed closely by Bourbon Steak.  Lokal and Blue Collar on the rise…

    There’s a new food truck coming out soon in November 2012: Da Burger Shack. They make delicious 100% angus beef burgers grilled to perfection! Be on the lookout for their debut in the upcoming weeks. Da Burger Shack is sure to make it on the Burgies Award nomination list next year and win an award!

    Disagree with some of Broward’s top resteraunts. Thinking Cafe Maxxx, Market 17, Johnny V’s and more got snubbed. Not to mention Jaxsons is on the same list as Matoranos?? Really?

      The restos on the list are places I’ve liked and fit in well with what I write about. The reason for the write in nominations is to fill gaps that the readers disagree with.

    ” We’re not gonna have any noobs sneak in here and have all their college roommates vote them in.”

    That would be funny, if most of the food trucks in South Florida weren’t putting out such old, tired crap.

    Some of the “noob” trucks I’ve been to have been blowing away the older trucks.
