Hundreds gathered on May 9, 2014 for the Miami Lakes Auto Mall Burger Beast Burger Brawl. The event was hosted by the Magic City Casino in Miami, FL, presented by Burger Maker, and sponsored by Miami Lakes Auto Mall. The Brawl featured 20, yes 20, of South Florida’s burger spots! A ticket to the event allowed you to sample all 20 burgers from popular South Florida burger joints and more!
Here was the lineup:
A&G Burger Joint
Bread + Butter Counter
Burger & Beer Joint
Charm City Burger Company
Gilbert’s 17th Street Grill
Jefe’s Original Soul Shack
Latin House Grill
MEAT Eatery & Taproom
Tucker Duke’s Lunchbox
Vega’s Burger Bar
In addition to this knockout lineup, the Brawl also featured:
2013 Frita Showdown Champion El Rey de las Fritas’ Frita Cubana, Sakaya Kitchen’s Chunk’d Tot Bar, Miami Smoker’s Bacon, Desserts from Azucar Ice Cream Company, HipPOPs Handcrafted Gelato Bars, Marlie’s Delights, & Sugar Yummy Mama, Beer Samplings from Samuel Adams, and CAWY Soft Drinks (Jupiña & Materva)!
We had to pace ourselves here. It was three hours of burger sampling. We ate so much that we had to take sporadic breaks in able to finish sampling more burgers. I won’t lie, the tastiest burgers in all of South Florida took place at this event.
At the end of the evening, brawlers casted their votes and picked the winner of the inaugural Burger Beast Burger Brawl. So without further ado, this year’s Burger Beast Burger Brawl winner was….Latin House Grill!
Congratulations to Latin House Grill for delivering the best burger of the evening by a majority vote and taking the Burger Beast Burger Brawl trophy home!
After experiencing the Burger Beast Burger Brawl, we must admit, yes, IN THE BEAST WE TRUST!
