Burger Joint Invasion Continues In South Florida

Swine Southern Burger

Swine Southern Burger, One of my New favorites

The world of Burgers is again movin’ and shakin’ in South Florida. There’s a bunch of openings happening in the next few weeks with the highest profile being Food Network star Bobby’s Flay’s Bobby’s Burger Palace this Friday December 6th. I’ve done my best to compile all the info I have below for you and as I get updates I will pass it along to you cause that’s how I do.

Bobby’s Burger Palace (7535 N Kendall Dr, Miami, FL 33156): Bobby Flay brings his super popular Bobby’s Burger Palace to Dadeland. The Burgers can be “Crunchified” or topped with Potato Chips. It opened up Friday December 6th at Noon.

Buddha Burger (2003 Harrison Street, Hollywood, Florida 33020): Buddha Burger is owned by the founder of the original Quickie’s location in Hollywood. It will be full service with Beer & Wine too. He is hoping to be open in the next week or so.

Burger 21 (2451 South University Drive Davie, FL 33324): Tampa Burger chain coming to Davie in January 2014.

BurgerFi (1242 Washington Ave Miami Beach, FL 33139 and 136 Miracle Mile Coral Gables, FL 33134): BurgerFi continues the BurgerFi-cation of Florida.

Cuban Guys (10801 SW 72nd Street Miami, FL 33173): The 3rd location for Cuban Guys (after Hialeah & North Miami Beach) is expected to be open sometime between Monday December 9th and Thursday December 12th, fingers crossed.

El Corral (14794 SW 56th Street Miami, FL 33185): El Corral, the Colombian Burger powerhouse is opening its second location in deep Kendall with more locations to follow soon after in Pembroke Pines, Hollywood & Brickell.  Kendall’s opening date is Sunday December 12th with it soft opening prior to that this Wednesday.

El Rey de las Fritas (10142 W. Flagler St. Miami, FL 33174): El Rey de las Fritas is moving their FIU location due to an issue with the landlord to Sweetwater. It is slated to open in late January but the Food Truck will be making appearances at the new spot very shortly, expect to find it there every Monday through Friday.

Gimme A Burger (2010 N. Flamingo Road Pembroke Pines, FL 33028): The first Gimme A Burger opened up shop extremely close to Charm City Burger Company. I was sure it would be a goner but I was wrong. So wrong that they’re opening up a 2nd spot in the old Pembroke Pines Quickie’s Burgers & Wings location.

Jefe’s Soul Shack: The name may sound familiar and that’s because it’s the same good folks as the Jefe’s Original Fish Taco & Burgers Food Truck. The Soul Shack will sell Burgers,Tacos and Sandwiches.

Latin Burger & Taco (232 Miracle Mile Coral Gables, FL 33134): The Latin Burger & Taco Food Truck is about to turn 4 years old and is finally opening a full fledged store in the Gables. Unfortunately it’s where a Fatburger & a BGR Burger Joint have already both closed shop.

Military Burger (10834 SW 104 St Miami, FL 33176): Military Burger just recently opened up with a Military theme. It’s located right next door to Fuego Lento which is across the street from the  Miami Dade College Kendall Campus. I haven’t tried it yet, have you?

Tucker Duke’s Lunchbox (Deerfield Beach 33442): I know very little information about this resto other than it’s opening up in Deerfield Beach and it serves Burgers.

    The Filling Station & Garage Bar has received so much pressure to offer Filling Station items at LUNCH American Style that we decided to convert the LUNCH location into a quick service Filling Station…THE FILLING STATION EXPRESS…COMING SOON!
