Categories: Burger News

For $320,000, you can send your children to college, buy a house -- or eat the most expensive burger on the planet. At the University of Maastricht, Dutch scientists have engineered meat without the murder, growing cow stem cells in a petri dish instead of the fields bordering the interstate.

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.

The Steak 'n Shake 7x7 Burger: There's a new gut bomb in town.
If you've ever driven around in your car at two in the morning wondering where you could find a mega gut-bomb, then read on because we've found a doozie of a burger.

Steak 'n Shake has introduced the 7 x 7 Steakburger, and it's exactly what you think it is -- seven meat patties (and seven slices of cheese) all in one bun (because seven buns would be overkill, don't you think?).

This burger contains one full pound of meat and, according to Steak 'n Shake's nutritional statement, 1,330 calories; 98 grams fat, 45 grams saturated fat, and 4,490 milligrams sodium.
