Cheeseburger Baby Celebrates 13 Years in SoBe: Drunks, Diddy, and Locals
|Stephanie Vitori's Cheeseburger Baby serves a diverse clientele.|
Cheeseburger Baby's current owner, Stephanie Vitori, started as a delivery driver at the restaurant, before taking over about 11 years ago. Since that time, Vitori has seen a lot.
She tells Short Order, "When we opened 13 years ago, it was the heart of South Beach and the same remains true today. We have the pleasure of meeting tourists from all around the world. Then, we have our locals. Many have been coming since we opened our doors. They've become close friends. My hometown of Pittsburgh might have my heart, but Miami Beach has my soul. I love it here."

Cheeseburger Baby's clientele is varied. "We're open until dawn and we're blocks away from some of the most popular clubs in the country, so we get our fair share of drunk patrons daily. On the other side of the coin, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Lil' Jon and Diddy love our burgers."
To celebrate its 13th anniversary, Cheeseburger Baby is hosting a party on Sunday, January 13, with various specials, including:
- 13 percent off the entire menu (all day)
- $2 baby cheeseburgers, $1 wings and $3 hot dogs (all day)
- $13 buckets of corona from 6 to 9 p.m. in the back bar
- Drink of the day, the Magic 8 Ball is $5
- $3 PBR Tall Boys from noon-8 p.m.
We're not sure if Diddy, Jay-Z and Beyonce will stop in, but we're sure they're invited.
