This Coconut Grove beer and brew spot serves burgers made from Florida grass-fed beef from White Ranch in
Ocala. They're free of hormones and
antibiotics, but what we like most is that they taste so damn good. There are dozens of burgers to choose from (including a weird but tasty veggie version made from beets), but we go for the namesake Lokal ($12), served with Florida tomatoes, avocados, lettuce, red onions, jack cheese, and homemade honey mustard on a branded bun. Burgers are served with regular or sweet-potato fries (hint: get a half-and-half portion), and there are a bunch of semilocal beers offered that pair well with the meat.

Bourbon Steak

Grab a seat at the oversize bar at Bourbon Steak inside the Turnberry Isle Resort and let your attentive barkeep know you're interested in a burger. You'll soon be handed a form and a pencil. Here's how it works: Start with your choice of protein -- lamb ($19), heritage turkey ($15), vegetarian ($14), or all-beef ($18). We prefer the beef for obvious reasons. Then tick off choice of doneness; toppings such as bacon ($4), avocado ($4), or seared foie gras ($21); and sides (you know you want the duck-fat fries for an extra $5). Wash your perfect burger down with a Jim Beam-spiked milkshake ($11) and be glad the favorite foods of your childhood, like you, have matured into something amazing.

Seriously, Not having The Filling Station on this list is a bit ridiculous. How do you even choose the places to vote on? Like someone else said, get out and explore a little. Shameful.

Where the shit is the Filling Station and their nutella and carmelized onion burger? c'mon man, that place obviously should have been on the list. Get around and explore once in a while.

Shake Shack is the best by far.  Best quality meat.  best seasoning.  Best quality ingredients, best quality control (every burger comes out the same).  And BEST PRICE!!!

The SOBE Ritz has a better burger than any of these joints.

Gotta agree with the whisk burger. It's awesome on Fridays. Another restaurant in Coral Gables, Route 9, has one of the best burgers I've eaten. Shake Shack holds the key to my burger heart.

I tried Blue Collar, and was pleasantly rewarded with a juicy cheeseburger.  I will be back, anyone try heavy burger?

I agree with most of the list but the B&B Burger at Norman Brothers Produce should be on this list too. That burger changed my life.

I know this says Miami, but Le Tub should be on this list, and I've heard Rok Burger is worth the trip. Filling Station is great too.

Having said that, there's nothing Blue Collar about a $12 burger. What happened to great regular burgers? Some places like T-Road still have those...

Latin House Grill should be on this list

morton's is pretty darn good. plus they serve them RARE, which is a rarity for many places. whisk is decent, hardly great. i like them, eat there almost weekly, but they ain't great.

Perhaps Whisk Gourmet is not on your list because they only serve burgers on Friday...They really kicked off the current burger craze several years ago. Seriously check out their Burger Friday.... Best in the City!

I've eaten burgers at each of the places on this list.  I've also eaten every great burger in chicago, tempe, los angeles, new york, milwaukee, and shake shack's the best. Hand's down.

DB Bistro Moderne is an over priced hype burger.  Yes its the most expensive but that's about it. The flavors just don't work . They put too much stuff on it which i had to take completely off to taste the burger.  Save your money and go to B&B.

The fact that the Filling Station isn't on here is a travesty. Filling Station trumps all these joints.
