Burger Beast's Burgie Awards: Watch the Recap (Video)

Thousands of fans of food trucks, beer, and music gathered in downtown Fort Lauderdale's Esplanade Park this past Saturday for the fifth Burgie Awards.

The Burgies were, of course, created by South Florida food blogger Burger Beast as a way to acknowledge trucks and restaurants that specialize in affordable comfort food. The evening saw a huge crowd eating, drinking, and enjoying the balmy winter weather before the big moment -- the actual awards.

The big winner of the evening was Blue Collar restaurant in Miami, which took home awards for best fries and best restaurant. Broward/Palm Beach winners included Charm City (Best Burger), Mojo Donuts (Best Doughnut), and Rolling Stove (Best Food Truck Broward/Palm Beach).
