One of the questions I get asked the most is which is the Best Food Truck Burger. How can I not be asked that question with there being over 100 food trucks in South Florida, half of which serve different versions of the burger?
Well, this time around, we’re talking about the Best Food Trucks in Miami. Sprinkled throughout, you will find delicious burgers from food trucks like Between Two Buns, FatBoy Rick’s, and Monster Burgers.
This list does not include food trucks that are restaurants. But, if I was including them, these are they: Are You Hungry? Grill, Cheeseburger Baby, Cuban Guys, Miami Roasted Corn (Elote Lovers), Pipo Burgers, and World Famous EggRoll Truck.
This list, like all my other guides, is fluid, which means when I find a food truck I enjoy, I will add it immediately. By the same token, I will remove a food truck after two bad experiences cause no one is perfect.
Best Food Trucks in Miami List
As always with any food truck, follow them on social media for hours and locations.
A.C. Icees has been around forever, literally, and he does one thing really great…frosted lemonade. There are three flavors (lemonade, cherry, and piña colada) and three sizes (small, medium, and large).
First-timers should get a small and work up to a large unless it’s hot outside (which it always is), when the large is a must!
Authentic Gyros can be found in food truck roundups around South Florida. He’s also one of my favorites cause of his tastiness and consistency.
You will always find Authentic Gyros owner Dejan in the window putting the finishing touches on his dishes, from gyros to falafel.

The BBQin Cuban
Look, I know Cuban is in the name, but the BBQin Cuban is barbecue through and through. Those brisket tacos and honey butter drizzled cornbread are delicious.
But you need to eat the pulled pork Cuban sandwich and some of those creamy housemade mashed potatoes.
Tuesday is the only day when sliders are available at Between Two Buns. I’d suggest you try to make it that day if you can.
The loaded fried chicken fries covered in sauce, tomatoes, and onions are not actually in a bun, but they are a meal in itself.

Fat Boy Rick’s
The burgers from Fat Boy Rick’s are great, but those chopped burger cheese fries are the thing that you need to be eating when enjoying an addictive streaming program at home.
Did you take a good look at them? Damn, they’re good.

FatMan Hot Dogs
Fatman Hot Dogs and More began its life as a hot dog cart, but by the time I finally got around to trying them, he had upgraded to a food trailer. I’ve seen things like burgers, tater tots, and even a “Parfat,” his take on a parfait with a layered chopped hot dog, mac ‘n cheese, and beans.
We can all agree that wieners and sausages are what he does best. My fave is the griddled sausage with onions, peppers, and yellow mustard.
Flavor House Grill
If you’re ever at a South Florida food truck roundup, you’re likely to see that Flavor House Grill has the longest line. You might remember them as Jerk It when they were at my now retired weekly Monday night event, Food Trucks at ArtsPark in Hollywood.
The Jerk Chicken is delicious, but that summer salad pictured was Marcela‘s choice. I stick to the coconut rice.
There are two reasons to wait in line at the Miami Baked food truck: churros and cookies. We’re in Miami, so streams of cream cheese and guava are a must.
What’s better than a thick, fresh-baked cookie? One that’s stuffed with chocolate chips.

The dog is covered in bacon, mayo ketchup, garlic, and pineapple sauces. It’s an unconventional combination that compliments each other deliciously.
The Pizza En Fuego food truck doesn’t have an extensive menu, which should make your decision easier unless you’re one of those kinds of people. I’m talking about the kind who holds up the line when you’re waiting to order food, and you’re starving.
I stick to eating the Godfather pizza with ham, chorizo, pepperoni, and sausage. Yes, it’s essentially a meat-lover pie with chorizo adding a little pizzaz. So good.
Santo Dulce Churros
The menu at Santo Dulce food truck is made up of a variety of churros, ice cream, tequeños, and lemonade. My favorite combo is the sugar churro in the Santa Coladita ice cream base; it makes for some tasty Cuban comfort food.
Marcela loves the Oreo dust churro in the cookies and cream ice cream base. Now, you don’t have to love churros to enjoy Santo Dulce, but it does help!
The menu at Tacos El Machine Gon is short and sweet: tacos, costras, quesadilla and churros. But that’s not to say that they don’t expand on it from time to time.
If the Al Pastor taco is on the menu, then I know what I’m eating: a couple of those fellas. Before you order that taco, start with an esquite, a cup of corn with corn kernels, jalapeño, lime garlic aioli, cortija cheese, cilantro, and chile powder. It’s a beautiful baby.
