It was 1976 when the first Char-Hut opened its doors in an old Royal Castle building. Shortly after that Miami Gardens location, they expanded into Broward County and became an institution for folks there.
The original spot closed many moons ago, but there’s hope they’ll come back to Dade County sooner than later.
You can’t call yourself a South Florida Burger Expert without eating Char-Hut at least once. Here, it’s all about that char-taste.
Part of the Char-Hut experience is watching your food on the grill in front of you behind protective glass after you place your order. Once cooked to your liking, you can view your sandwich’s assembly. It’s pretty exciting, mainly as the anticipation builds when you’re starving.
Regarding sides, the first thing that comes to most folks’ minds is fries, but you should consider the Frings. An order of frings brings skin-on fries and some of their string onion rings.
Char-Hut Burger Sizes
Three burger sizes are available: 1/6 lb, 1/3 lb, and 1/2 lb patties. I’ve never even considered eating the smallest of the three. I’m a Double cheese 1/3 lb pound, aka Char-Buster kinda guy.
It won’t let you down, but if you are insistent on something with a little more oomph size-wise, then the 1/2 lb Big Bite Burger. The Big Bite patty adds brisket to the burger blend mix, giving you a meatier flavor.
Oh, I almost forgot…jump on that Big Dog with chili and cheese. I wouldn’t say I like raw onion sliced long on hot dogs, but I make do. The chili dog is excellent and brought me back to the first time I ate Char-Hut.
The pressure might be on when you’re taking in the menu, so here’s my suggestion: Grab a Char-Buster with cheese, a chili dog, some frings, and a birch beer to wash everything down. In other words, order as the BEAST would.

Char-Hut Old Sunrise Location
As a teenager, I got lost in Davie with my friend Liza, and we were starving with a capital S.
After driving aimlessly for what seemed like forever, I encountered a Char-Hut. The drive-thru was calling out to us. We stuffed our faces, and I remember, in particular, enjoying a chili dog that night. I never thought I would eat there again.
I hadn’t even thought of Char-Hut in years when I was driving in Sunrise and came across one of their locations. Flash forward to a few days later when I was in Sunrise again and decided to go for it.
