The Ten Best Burgers in Broward

The Ten Best Burgers in Broward
The Tucker Duke burger.

Take a drive through western Texas and it'll be as clear as the never-ending expanse of sky: America is a country of beef eaters.

There's a reason so many locals flock through its open-air doors.

When it comes to a primal craving for meat, here in the U.S., it's all about the burgers. Our love of ground-meat-patty sandwiches stems from deep-seated childhood memories — hey, it probably even reminds us of running around the playground of Mickey D's. There's just something visceral about holding that bun between your hands and biting into a succulent round of ground beef as the fat drips down your arm — it's definitely not a meal to eat on a first date.

To honor the greatest dish to have ever been placed between two buns — it is National Burger Month, after all — we've scoured the 954 to find the ten best burgers in Broward County.

1. Tucker Duke's Lunchbox

1101 S. Powerline Road in Deerfield Beach. Call 954-708-2035, or visit facebook.com/tuckerdukesdeerfieldbeach.

Disgusted with the never-ending line at the McDonald's drive-through near his original Niceville, Florida, location, owner Brian Cartenuto decided to put a burger on the menu. It's his bigger and better interpretation of the Big Mac. The Tucker Duke Burger ($10) piles a half-pound of Florida Seminole Pride beef with fried onion rings, melted American cheese, mixed baby greens, celery-salted tomato, and Pink Tucker sauce (Cartenuto's version of Cajun remoulade) on a toasted, onion-encrusted bun. While he didn't intend to open a burger place, his signature creation was so good that he had to move his shop into a larger space in a neighboring Panhandle town — Deerfield Beach is his second store. And with a footprint in Broward, his is quickly earning a reputation as one of the best burger places in all of Florida.

2. Burger & Beer Joint

11025 Pines Blvd. in Pembroke Pines. Call 954-367-8980, or visit bnbjoint.com.

The new Broward spawn of the always-packed South Beach haunt, this place offers some of the best ground-meat-patty sandwiches in the 305, 954, and 561 combined. Though you can't go wrong with anything on its creative menu — nonbeef options too — we're all about the beef this month. To fully savor the fatty satisfaction, you might want to try the Mustang Sally (eight-ounce Wagyu beef, red onion marmalade, Brie cheese, and sliced prosciutto cradled between a brioche bun for $16.99) or the Hotel California (ten ounces of certified Angus prime, guacamole, grilled Vidalia onion, jalapeño relish, cilantro sour cream, sharp cheddar, and a sunny-side-up fried egg, stacked in the middle of a brioche bun and priced at $13.99). With interesting toppings and perfectly cooked patties, there's just no going wrong.

3. Charm City Burgers

1136 E. Hillsboro Blvd. in Deerfield Beach. Call 954-531-0300, or visit charmcityburgers.com.

When it comes to listing burger joints in Broward County, one must include Charm City — otherwise, the foodie trolls would be out in full force. And for good reason. This counter-order Deerfield spot has some of the best and most inexpensive options in town (or all of the South Florida towns). The Good Ole Burger with or without cheese starts at just $5.25. Volcano Style with pepper jack cheese, volcano sauce, and jalapeño rings in at just $6.50. Looking for full-on indulgent? The Emperor with Kobe beef patty, sautéed mushrooms, aged Gruyère, and truffled aioli comes out to a mere $10.95 — an addition of foie gras is another 12 bucks. There's a reason South Floridians love this place so much: It's everything you want in life (affordable and damned good) in just one handheld option.

4. Hardy Park Bistro

21 SW Seventh St. in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-652-1475, or visit facebook.com/HardyParkBistro.

Owned by Australian native and former yacht chef Philip Darmon, this neighborhood bistro is known more for its refined fare, like octopus salad and crisp skinned salmon, than for bar-food staples. But its signature burger is just as good (if not better) than everything else. It takes all the classic elements and flavors and puts them into epicurean form. The H.P.B. Burger is a ten-ounce custom blend with cheddar, house-made tomato chutney, mayo, crisp onions, and cool iceberg lettuce on a buttery bun served with a side of hand-cut fries ($14). The attention to detail is almost unparalleled — not a surprise coming from a guy who spent much of his career working for the rich and famous.

5. BurgerFi

Multiple locations: 6 S. Ocean Blvd. in Delray Beach, 561-278-9590; 2009-C NE Second St. in Deerfield Beach, 954-531-6168; 700 S. Rosemary Ave. in West Palm Beach, 561-557-9144; 2700 University Drive in Coral Springs, 954-510-8300; 4343 N. Ocean Drive in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, 954-489-0110.

As many fast-casual chains have taken root over the past few years, this locally grown concept has quickly become a South Florida institution. There's something for everyone. It offers a wide selection of all-natural ground-meat sandwich options, ranging from the simple BurgerFi Burger (double natural Angus burger, lettuce, tomato, and BurgerFi sauce) to the gluttonous Breakfast All Day Burger (natural Angus burger, American cheese, hickory bacon drizzled with maple syrup, fried egg, hash browns, grilled diced onions, and ketchup) to a high-class Brisket Burger (double natural 28-day, dry-aged ground brisket, Swiss cheese, blue cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles, and BurgerFi sauce) to fully customizable options. There's a reason so many locals flock through its open-air doors: It's budget-friendly, and it's damned good.

Even still, indictment seems all bizzare. The guy is many, many, many things I'm just not sure he's a criminal. Even liberals seem to think the thing is shaky. Let's just let the guy finish his term so I dnt have to keep listening to him? Just because I dnt care for him as a politician doesn't give me the right to criminalize his politics.

................the thing is IF a burger is served with the WRONG BUN or the burger when pushed down on doesn't  have the MEAT JUICE and FAT liquid run out - its simply a previously-frozen hockey puck

...........WELL LIKE I SAID american social BURGERs for their PRICE are a rip-off


otherwise i am NOT going to reveal where the best burgers are served in ft liquordale because i do not want this local-yokel seafood place on the water to get more attention because i am finding it difficult as it is to get a table MYSELF there  - i know it is dumb to go to a seafood place for RED MEAT but i have solved this by bringing others with me so i can order the basket of peel-n-eat old bay shrimp and mussels with sauce and a bowl of the chowder and we all share the seafood stuff
