Remembering Jr’s Gourmet Burgers in Miami Springs

Jr’s Gourmet Burger is located in Miami Springs (7 Westward Drive). I spent my summers as a kid with my Dad working in that area on his WISE Potato Chips route. One of his vending stops was Piggly Wiggly (now Milam’s Market) across from Circle Park in the heart of Miami Springs.

Jr’s Gourmet Burgers is a cozy little place right off the circle. I always feel at home when I walk in and sit. It has a great small-town feel.

I don’t need to look at the menu, but I always do.

The sliders are, without a doubt, one of the best I’ve ever had. I know what you must be thinking, why order sliders when you’re going to order a burger here? The answer: You would be estupid not to, and yes, I misspelled on purpose for you spelling nazis.

I suggest you order the plain sliders with cheese & onions, but the BBQ bacon cheddar version is pretty good.

My Favorite is…

Now don’t get me started on their Outside Is In burger. The Outside Is In is Jr’s riff on a Juicy Lucy (cheese-stuffed burgers) but with crispy bacon added to the mix. It is imperative to note the beautiful crust on the outside of this burger.

It can not be ordered well done, which might prevent some of you from considering eating one. I say, butch up and order it anyway. Everyone has to grow up sooner or later, so why not at Jr’s? They won’t tell anyone that your natural carnivore instincts kicked in.

The menu is rounded out with some turkey burgers, chicken sandwiches, and even a couple of salads (the dreaded S-word) for those of you looking for something leaner to eat.

Me? I’ll stick to sliders and burgers; that’s what we BEASTs do.

What about That Guy’s Burger? It’s a 5oz burger patty topped with cream cheese, and guava on white bread, then wrapped in bacon with a side of guava ketchup.
