Burger Beast Burgie Awards: Broward Restaurants Represent

Sef Gonzalez has turned eating burgers into a mission and a career.

The man behind the popular food blog Burger Beast has become a food critic, blogger, food-truck-roundup promoter, and host of his own annual award, the Burgies.

The third-annual Burger Beast Burgie Awards is tonight at Miami's Magic City Casino.

South Florida's best restaurants and food trucks will submit their

hamburgers for judging by a panel of food experts, bloggers, and other

meat lovers (including yours truly) for the titles of Best Burger 2011 and Best Food Truck Burger 2011. 

In addition, 40 food trucks and a host of restaurants will be set up

outside the casino, selling their food and burgers, in case you want to

try for yourself. 

Several restaurateurs from Broward County will be making the drive down

to Miami to compete for the title. They will also have tents set up to

sell their wares.

Broward favorites include Charm City Burger Company (Deerfield Beach),

Georgie's Alibi (Wilton Manors),

Gilbert's 17th Street Grill (Fort Lauderdale), and

Quickie's Burgers & Wings (Hollywood).

The Burger Beast Burgie Awards are tonight, November 19, from 5 to 9 p.m. at Magic City Casino in Miami. Admission is free. (Facebook RSVP here).
