Did you know it's National Burger Month? (Your Instagram feed may have clued you in).
It's not like we need a made-up holiday to enjoy some of Miami's best patties; there are plenty of great ones in town.
In no particular order, here's where to find our favorites.
? db Bistro Moderne in Downtown
The db Burger ($32) is world-renowned for a reason. We think it has something to do with the braised sirloin patty stuffed with short rib and foie gras. The Parmesan bun doesn't hurt, either
? Michael Mina 74 in Miami Beach
You know about the Burger Bar at Bourbon Steak, but our fave Mina burger is the dry-aged steak burger ($26) with smoked bacon at 74. There's something addicting in that creamy secret sauce.
? A & G Burger Joint in Sweetwater
With such a varied selection, we recommend keeping it "simple" by going for the 50/50 BBQ burger ($12). The patty is mixed with ground applewood bacon, basted with BBQ sauce and topped with smoked Gouda.
? Blue Collar in Upper Eastside
The Real Juicy Cheeseburger ($16) is a toothsome prime NY strip patty served on a perfectly toasted Portuguese muffin. This month's specials include burgers inspired by local bloggers.
? LoKal and Kush in Coconut Grove and Wynwood
The LoKal burger ($13) gets our seal of approval for its Florida grass-fed beef with house-made honey mustard sauce, melted jack cheese, tomatoes and avocado. So kush.
? Umami in South Beach
The city exclusive Miami Heat burger ($15) is mixed with smoky pork chorizo and draped in mojo mustard sauce. It's totally playoffs worthy.
? Pincho Factory in Westchester and Coral Gables
Move over doughnut burger; no matter what insane items sandwich the chuck, brisket and short rib patties (tostones, pastelitos, quesadillas, etc.), the best way to have it is in the fairly straight forward Pincho burger ($5.99 single, $7.49 double) with potato sticks and house pink sauce.
? Latin House Burger and Taco Bar in Kendall
We've got intense feelings for the Mad Love burger ($7.99 ¼ lb., $12.99 ½ lb.). Blanketed with mozzarella, provolone, Swiss, maple-glazed bacon, caramelized onions and mushrooms, slices of Hass avocados and a creamy avocado-lime sauce, it makes you want to fall in love over and over again.
? Sakaya Kitchen in Downtown and Midtown
Why wouldn't you turn one of the world's most delicius dishes into a burger? The Bulgogi ($9) is topped with goat cheese, kimchi tator-tots, house pickles and a slab of pork. It's an explosion of sweet and spicy flavors with a crunch.
? Swine Southern in Coral Gables
Pig out with the Swine burger ($16). What makes this multilayered creation irresistible is a slab of thick-cut smoked bacon topping an already luscious patty.
