View as Map

Fried eggs and foie gras no longer cut it as pushing the boundaries of any dish.

We've dug up the weirdest and wildest burgers found in South Florida sure to mystify at first sight.

Triple Decker Slider Burger from Gastropod

Copy Link
Roving chef extraordinaire and North Miami native, Chef Jeremiah Bullfrog first stuffs this burger with shaved pork belly, then drapes it with onions cooked in bacon and crowns it all with a Fire 'N Ice terrine.

The "New Englander" at RACKS Fish House & Oyster Bar

Copy Link
Delray seems like a nice, quiet place. A famous burger found there titled the "New Englander" may also lend itself to simple, grilled memories of summers in the Northeast. But this northbound foray goes off the tracks fast. What begins with a wood grilled grass-fed burger then detours deeply between crispy buttermilk fried oysters, aioli, cheddar, jalapeno and lettuce grounded in an Old Bay kaiser roll.

Forge Burger 2.0 at The Forge

Copy Link
For a sensual feast from A to umami, the Forge is nothing short of a dining wonderland. With a hamburger that reigns supreme, their grilled Forge Burger 2.0 takes the cake with a patty blend of brisket, shortrib and prime sirloin that balances crispy truffles, aged Wisconsin white cheddar sauce, and Tina's local heirloom tomatoes between a flour-top bun.

Mediterranean Burger at Dune Oceanfront Burger Lounge at the Ritz Carlton

Copy Link
The Ritz on Key Biscayne take hamburgers on a trip around the world at their Dune Oceanfront Burger lounge. As a beauty of a burger and one that doesn't ooze gluttony, their Mediterranean burger takes tastebuds straight to paradise with Proscuitto, Manchego and pesto.

The Big Sloppy at Charm City Burgers

Copy Link
A double meat, double cheese, double bacon, hash brown and fried egg mammoth of a hamburger that drowns in their special Charm sauce is so special it should probably come with a side of tapeworm. Nothing more on the subject.

Dirty South Korean Burger at Sakaya Kitchen

Copy Link
Asian fusion meets American backyard BBQ at Sakaya Kitchen. The Dirty South Korean burger is a flawless remix of classic country favorites with a Korean kick as they finish their pulled pork sliders with house-made kimchee slaw and a quick pickle top.

The Punisher at Cheeseburger Baby

Copy Link
For $50.00, you get a 5 lb. burger plus a free t-shirt. Or a $50.00 drop-cloth.

Butcher & The Burger

Copy Link
Though the menu at this burger outpost reads more like a Dr.Suess ingredient list, with seasonal specials of Elk, Ostrich, Soft Shell Crab, and Fried Catfish to choose from, the upside will be walking out with a storybook dining experience from the wildest spot possibly found in South Florida.

Fly Like an Eagle Burger at B&B Joint

Copy Link
It should be no surprise that South Beach's Burger and Beer Joint aims to please. They waste no time in reconstructing the one fool-proof feel-good meal of the year to make a burger that will send everyone to their happy place. The Fly Like an Eagle burger shamelessly layers home-made stuffing in between two 5oz. ground turkey patties, brown gravy, and cranberry sauce elevating Thanksgiving to sky-high levels.

The Luther at Bulldog Barbecue

Copy Link
When savory, sweet and salty mingle, more than a star is born. Bulldog Burger illuminates all of burger land with the Luther, a hamburger that can be found somewhere between a Krispy Kreme-style Glazed Donut Bun and layers of crisp bacon, caramelized onion, cheddar cheese and house sauce.

B.A.D. (Breakfast All Day) Burger at BurgerFi

Copy Link
BurgerFi pushes "breakfast for dinner" to a new horizon with their B.A.D. burger. A masterful natural Angus burger is swathed with American cheese, a fried egg, hash browns, grilled onion, hickory smoked bacon and then drizzled with maple syrup.
