4. A&G Burger Joint 646 SW 109th Ave, 33174,

Because McDonald's refuses to put a Big Mac on a McGriddle, A&G starts serving its Angus patties starting at 9a, including the Breakfast Burger (applewood bacon, hash browns, fried egg, hollandaise), and one called the Creature that stacks 4bs of meat with a 1/2lb of fries, a 1/2lb of sweet potato fries, a 1/2lb of other, non-fry toppings, and your money back if you finish it.

6. El Corral 7800 NW 25th St, Miami, FL 33122

After serving up burgers in Columbia since 1983, El Corral decided to bring its Latin American flair to the states. The menu includes over 15 different burgers and sides including fires, onion rings, and even salads (do not be that person who goes to a burger joint and orders a salad).

8. John Martin's Irish Pub & Restaurant 253 Miracle Mile, Miami, FL 33134 (Coral Gables)

Irish classics and Cajun flair meet at this Coral Gables pub. The odd combination works surprisingly well, as regulars rave about staples like their Pub Burger, a blacked patty topped with smoked bacon, Irish cheddar, and seasoned with Cajun spices. Locals come for the food and stay for the weekly live music, as the 20 foot mahogany bar -- lifted from an old Irish church -- proves an ideal place to enjoy a pint. Consider swinging through on St. Patrick’s Day -- apparently the festivities here are some of the most raucous and merry in Miami.
