National Burger Month 2018 – Broward County Edition

Can you believe it’s been a whole year since the last National Burger Month? I can but I celebrate all year round.

Below you will find a bunch of new Burgers and specials from different restaurants in Broward & Palm Beach counties running throughout the month of May to celebrate the humble Burger.

Before we get to that we start with my New and improved Burger Beast Top lists that will be released on the 1st three Tuesdays in May.
