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.

Go Greek at Gyromania Grill
Not known as a hamburger joint, this restaurant sells a lot more Gyro wraps but the same toppings, including tzatziki sauce go great on top of their standard 5oz. patty. Add a few strips of Gyro meat and some feta cheese crumbles and you’ve got a Greek Cheeseburger! They have priced it the same as their standard double-cheeseburger for only $7.70.
Gyromania Grill has 3 stores, one in Coral Springs, one in Boca Raton (Garden Shops) and another along 441 in Wellington. Find more details at gyromaniagrill.com
Black Angus Build-it-yourself Burger at Galuppi’s
Our choice for the most under-rated restaurant for burgers is Galuppi’s in Pompano Beach. Their menu only lists two hamburgers, one with the standard toppings for $10.50 and another one with hickory BBQ sauce, jalapeño jack cheese,applewood smoked bacon, crispy onion straws for $12.00 including fries. We recommend either due to the high quality meat and expert grilling. However, if you look at the menu closely, you’ll see that you can add various toppings for a little extra. So we started out with their standard 8 oz. black angus burger and added chili and cheese toppings. It was a little messy but well worth it! Sit outside on the patio and you’ll love the view too!
Galuppi’s Restaurant & Patio-Bar is located at 1103 N. Federal Hwy in Pompano Beach. For more information, visit their website www.galuppis.com or call (954) 785-0226.
