Get ready to unleash your inner cowboy at Burger Bar in Palm Beach Gardens because The Lone Star is coming to town. The fully loaded prime beef blend burger is topped with cheddar cheese, crispy onion rings, thick-cut bacon, mayo, and BBQ sauce. Served on the hip, gourmet burger joint's signature bun, this cheeseburger will have your taste buds yelling "yeehaw!" before the last bite.
The Beauty and the Beeeef is grilling up a mélange of drool-worthy and seismically sized 8-ounce Angus "beefwiches" like you've never experienced before. Take a bite out of the Super Pac Man, a superhero of smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, mac n' cheese, caramelized onions, and red onion. But the real wow factor of this gourmet burger is its bun -- breaded, deep-fried mac n' cheese.
Feeling hungry? Take on the 12 oz. Mr. Bigg at Grease Burger Bar in downtown West Palm Beach. Covered in melted pepper jack cheese, flame-grilled to perfection in a cast-iron skillet and crowned with deep-fried Applewood smoked bacon, caramelized frizzled onions, and warm garlic aioli, it's a delicious piece of gastro-pub art.
Vegans and meat-eaters alike are raving about the edgy Veggie Cheeseburger at Death or Glory, Delray Beach's popular bar and restaurant. The plant-based patty is made from a mixture of mushrooms, onions, beets, tamari, vegan Worcestershire sauce, and forbidden rice, a black delicacy once reserved for Chinese Emperors to ensure good health. The savory burger is topped with house-made pickles, raw onions, white cheddar and fancy sauce, a mixture of ketchup, dijon, mayo, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco and served on a potato bun.
