UPDATE: And the winning burgers at this week's Hamburger House Party presented by Burger Beast were Judges Choice: Hard Times Sundaes from Brooklyn NY, and Peoples Choice: Chefs On The Run.
Are you ready for a Hamburger Party? It's this Friday and it's a perfect way to end National Burger Month.
Over 20 restaurants will be competing for Best Burger in South Florida. This year features a rogue competitor, Hard Times Sundaes, coming all the way from Brooklyn to see if they have a shot at taking home to crown. Jr’s Gourmet Burgers are back to try to reclaim their crown for the 3rd year in a row. We’re wondering if they have what it takes to win again, right off the heels of their recent 2017 SOBEWFF Burger Bash win.
Guests can expected unlimited burgers from local favorites like Cheeseburger Baby, Twisted Fork Kitchen, Pinch Kitchen, and Mooyah. Beverages from local breweries like The Tank, MIA Beer Co., and Funky Buddha will be on tap. Of course, you can’t have a party without desserts – Sweetness Bakeshop and Dough Miami, along with a few others will be on hand to round out the night.
We've got the first peek and inside scoop on what's being served and it's definitely an event you won't want to miss!
