No. 96: The Mother of All Burgers From Quickie's Burgers & Wings
The Mother of All Burgers -- it's a name that claims a lot. But at Quickie's, a pair of homespun fast-food joints in Southwest Broward, it's a claim that comes through. What makes this monstrous concoction so great is its everything-but-the-kitchen-sink methodology.
First, Quickie's uses only quality beef and slow-chars it over a wood fire for a smoky flavor. In the case of the MOAB, the restaurant takes a pound patty and stuffs it with cheddar cheese too, which oozes and melts all into the meat. Next come the toppings: lettuce, tomato, grilled onions, French fries, and (of course) Quickie's legendary special sauce, a spicy, goopy, creamy blend that lubricates your arteries as much as your palate. Oh, and the truly adventurous can also add Quickie's homemade jerk seasoning to the patty. This pound-plus burger is an experience more than a meal -- a cacophony of intense flavors that somehow comes together to form one of the best (and most indulgent) fast-food experiences you'll find in SoFla.
