True to its name, Lokal owner Mathew “Kush” Kuscher sources all his ingredients from local farms. Kobe-style beef for their burger patties comes from nearby Cowart Ranch and is hand-ground on location every day. For a true taste of Miami, bite into the pressed Frita burger, topped with guava jelly, Gruyere cheese, bacon, and a haystack of crispy potato sticks. If a pastelito and a burger had a love child, this would be it.

You’d expect nothing less from a porcine joint named than a patty that blends short rib, brisket, and smoked pork. The Swine burger is the only burger on the menu and all that’s needed. Bacon joins the pig party, while American cheese, Swine special sauce, and homemade dill pickles kick it up an extra notch. For best results, eat it upside down.

Chef Danny Serfer cooks up burgers designed by different Miami food bloggers during National Burger Month. The other 11 months of the year, he serves Blue Collar regulars his signature Real Juicy Cheeseburger. The dry-aged NY strip patty lives up to its title when matched with melted American cheese, lettuce, tomato, and onion—all held together on a toasted Portuguese muffin.

Michael Mina’s lives up to this chef’s reputation for first-rate beef. The Dry-Aged Steak Burger sources its meat from Locker 28, an in-house dry-aging room for steak. The wagyu brisket and chuck patty is crowned with smoked bacon and Gouda, and a tangy secret sauce and black pepper bun complete the triumphant burger. Also on the menu, Korean BBQ patties that will make you wonder why salmon burgers aren’t a thing.

Pincho Factory

Pincho Factory

Pincho Factory gave Miami its famed Toston Burger, and recast the city’s idea of a burger bun. From the open kitchen, watch cooks prepare crispy tostones—fried plantain patties—which bookend two short rib, brisket, and chuck patties. Jack cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and house made cilantro sauce are layered throughout the Latin American masterpiece. No bun necessary.
