I had never been to Georgie’s Alibi (2266 Wilton Drive) in Wilton Manors. The place was nice, in my mind I expected some dive bar. I mean, there’s nothing wrong with being a dive bar, I love them.
Riverwalk Burger Battle 2010
July 9, 2010 – Georgie’s Alibi won Best Burger (a Cinderella story type victory), their words not mine at the Riverwalk Trust Burger Battle. What makes that comment is funny is that Georgie’s is a gay bar, restaurant, and nightclub all rolled into one.
I found my way to their glass cabinet near the restaurant’s kitchen to look at the trophy. I had not seen the trophy since the inaugural Riverwalk Burger Battle, and it’s just as beautiful and possibly better close up.
When I was judging at the Riverwalk Burger Battle, I had tried a quarter of a burger. This time I was ready for the whole shebang. The Champ Burger (given its name after the big and unexpected win) is topped with American cheese, chipotle aioli, and caramelized onions.
What’s important to mention here is that the onions for the Champ Burger are cooked in butter and bacon fat. Yup, I know, I know! Those combinations work well together. I found myself enjoying this burger as if it was the first time all over again.
Sure, there were fries served with the burger, but they became a non-factor once I took one bite of this guy. As I’m sure, you’ll find out too, whenever you eat one.
Riverwalk Burger Battle 2011
On May 5th, 2011, Georgie’s Alibi would 2-peat at the 2011 Riverwalk Burger Battle. Georgie’s could have gone the lazy route and submit the same burger as the year before, but this time they went with The Knockout.
This fella had roasted jalapeño cream cheese, roasted garlic mayo, and bacon-onion jam on a brioche roll. So freakin’ good.
