1. Nica Burger
A&G Burger Joint (Miami, FL)
Approximate calorie count: 1269
See that fried block that's nearly the same size as the 1/2lb beast of a burger patty? That's queso frito, which is basically the Dominican-Nicaraguan version of a mozzarella stick. And because there's also fried plantains, chimichurri, and jalapeño cole slaw, this burger actually checks off every single box of the food pyramid, which is a great thing because it's also almost a day's worth of calories. Done and done, y'all.
