Ten Best Burgers in Broward County

Take a drive through western Texas and it'll be as clear as the never-ending expanse of sky: America is a country of beef eaters.

When it comes to a primal craving for meat, here in the U.S., it's all about the burgers. Our love of ground-meat-patty sandwiches stems from deep-seated childhood memories -- hey, it probably even reminds us of running around the playground of Mickey D's. There's just something visceral about holding that bun between your hands and biting into a succulent round of ground beef as the fat drips down your arm -- it's definitely not a meal to eat on a first date.

To honor the greatest dish to have ever been placed between two buns -- it is National Burger Month, after all -- we've scoured the 954 to find the ten best burgers in Broward County.

10. Jack's Old Fashioned Hamburger House

When it comes to old-fashioned American food, nothing is more classic than a burger -- unless, of course, you prefer steak and kidneys. This place has been hand-grinding and -pressing burgers daily for adoring fans since 1972. And not much has changed over the years; the decor is just as stark and the prices are just as low (adjusted for inflation, obviously). There are no fancy toppings, aside from a few homemade relishes. And there's not much else to the menu (with the exception of shakes, hot dogs, and a couple of salads). A plain quarter-pound hamburger is just $3.85; lettuce and tomato is an extra 40 cents. A half-pound cheeseburger will run you less than seven bucks. A relic of a simpler life, this place focuses on the only real thing that matters: the beef.

9. Rok:Brgr

A consistent winner in the gourmet burger category, this downtown Fort Lauderdale spot has earned numerous New Times accolades for its interesting toppings and creative flavor combinations. Its tenet is based on taking first-rate ingredients (good enough to eat alone) and mixing them together for gustatory amalgamations that are out of this world. There may be something for every palate here; however, the Las Olas ($15) is where it's at. Built with a handmade blend of chuck, brisket, and short rib between fresh brioche, it's topped with milky Brie and a sweet house-made fig jam.

Finally a top 10 burger list that's solid. One of these had Shake Shack number 1 one time over places like Charm, Rok, and Tap. Hilarious.

The Burger Freak should've made the list, too.

Can't believe Quickie's Burgers and Wings of Hollywood, FL didn't make the list. Second only to Charm City, in my opinion.

I sure do hope that these places are not ranked in order because that would mean something here is seriously wrong!!!!  Tucker Duke's No. #1?  Ha, you have got to be kidding me!  The burgers are so over-salted that you need 3 of their watered down iced teas to wash one down!!!!  Charm City belongs at back at No. #1.
