If you eat meat, chances are you love a good burger.

Whether it's wood-fired, charcoal grilled, or seared in its own fat on a flattop, nothing beats the taste of ground up meat between two buns and the sensation of grease dripping down your chin.

Although we're good to go with a patty, a slice of cheese, and LTO on any old sort of bun, sometimes we're looking for a something more, something special in our burger consuming endeavors.

It could be a slice of bacon -- or two -- or, maybe even, a slab of pork belly.

Heck, sometimes we like to go for some seafood.

Point is, there are times when we want our burgers to be a bit more indulgent.

Here are the five most outrageous burgers in Palm Beach County.

There's something about a hunk of ground meat in between two buns that just comforts the soul.

Whether it's fond childhood memories, the soft pillowy bun, the fatty burger, the cheese, or the combination of delicious ingredients in perfect handheld format -- that's right, we frown upon eating burgers with a knife and fork around here -- sinking our teeth into a greasy patty makes us immensely happy.

While we're all for the plain cheeseburger, there are times when we want to kick it up a gluttonous notch in our burger consumption with seriously decadence.

Here are the five most outrageous burgers in Broward County.

Word to the wise: wear an elastic waistband.

Shula Burger
Restaurants may use customer feedback to their advantage, but it may not be so obvious how they use it. Shula Burger in Fort Lauderdale, however, redesigned the store.

It gets better: Don and Dave Shula (father/son) will present the new design and hold a little public Q&A session today at the Fort Lauderdale location from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to talk about the store's new design, what makes the perfect burger, and football and the Miami Dolphins, of course.

National Cheeseburger Day: Five Places to Stuff Your Face

Photo courtesy of he Office
As you may have already figured out, every food has a holiday of its own. Some are important: burgers, pizza, hot dogs, tequila -- the four basic food groups.

Things like National Salad Day (May 1), on the other hand: Who the hell cares?

Today is one of those days worthy of celebration. Whether you're willing to admit it or not, cheeseburgers are one of those foods everyone loves.

Obviously, you could fulfill your inner desire with a quick, inconspicuous pass through the Mickey D's drive-through, but that's no way to honor your love. It needs to be savored slowly and out in the open.

Rain Doesn't Stop Boca Burger Battle, Bite Gastrotruck Conquers Competition


What's the next best thing to beer, you might ask? Why, grilled meat, of course! So when a burger battle competition came to Boca Raton for the second year in a row, the opportunity couldn't be passed to taste the creations of some of the area's most competitive restaurants.

Braving the Seattle-like drizzle that saturated downtown Boca Raton Saturday night, hundreds of food festival enthusiasts made their way to Sanborn Square to experience the Second Annual Boca Burger Battle, an all-out war of burgerdom that pits restaurant against restaurant, chef against chef. Ok, it's not quite that bloodthirsty, but the participating vendors did pull out all the stops to show the people of southern Palm Beach County a thing or two about burgers.

Another day, another new upscale burger spot.

Burger & Beer Joint, which runs restaurants on Miami Beach and in Brickell, is planning to open a 5,800-square-foot outpost in Pembroke Pines in July.

The menu at 11025 Pines Blvd. will be identical to those at the Miami locations, said Special Projects Manager Devin Huber. The design should be similar too, but with an outdoor bar you can't find at the Miami restaurants. Expect lots of weathered-looking red brick, dark wood, red paint and vintage car and motorcycle signs.

Partying at overall winner Rosie's Bar and Grill.
As Huizenga plaza emptied after a long, meaty and sometimes rainy Burger Battle some people seemed shocked that Wilton Manors' Rosies' Bar and Grill won both best overall burger and best burger in the bar and grill category.

They must not have stopped by Rosie's tent. It was a unicorn of burger joy. There were multicolored club lights illuminating everyone inside in a rainbow glow. Pink feathered boas covered the tables. The crunchy potato chips on their Bacon Bitty Bang Bang Burgers (also topped with bourbon bacon jam and roasted tomatoes) were a throwback to childhood barbecues. A woman circled the tent trying to convince people to put their tokens -- their votes for fan favorite -- down her shirt.
