Cheeseburger Baby is the Burger Icon of Miami Beach (1505 Washington Avenue). It’s also my wife Marcela’s favorite burger joint. She would live there if it were possible.
If you’re ever in need of having a Burger fix at 3 AM on a Wednesday, then Cheeseburger Baby is your go-to place. Hell, if it’s 3 PM, it’s a great option too!
Whenever we’re here, Marcela always likes to start with an order of onion rings. They’re not homemade, but they do the job, plus they have some excellent seasoning on them.
Now, the chili cheese fries are a whole other thing. These fellas are highly addictive. Yes, there are beans in this chili, but that doesn’t stop this BB machine.
Go ahead and add some Jalapeños while you’re at it. The bacon cheese fries aren’t too shabby either.
Since I love their chili, it only makes I’d also try the chili cheese dog. Once you close up that bun, you’re fighting to keep everything inside.
The chicken tenders with a side of honey mustard aren’t too shabby either.
That Cheeseburger Baby Sear Though
One of the things that I always obsess over is the sear on the outside of a burger patty. I watched a master at work cause my burger had one of the most beautiful sears I’ve seen.
My burger came cooked a perfect medium, and that bacon was so crunchy & delicious it belongs in a breakfast sandwich.
Cheeseburger Baby has a great burger, which is why they’ve outlasted all these pretenders opening up near them and trying to steal their thunder.
If you haven’t eaten a Cheeseburger Baby, you should be ashamed of yourself. But, after almost twenty years, they’re still doing it the right way, their way. Steph Vitori, the owner of Cheeseburger Baby, ain’t playing games.
Be on the lookout for one of their two food trucks all over town too!
P.S.: Please remember, It doesn’t take 5 Guys to make a Cheeseburger, Baby, their fantastic phrase, not mine.
