The Burgies were, of course, created by South Florida food blogger Burger Beast as a way to acknowledge trucks and restaurants that specialize in affordable comfort food. The evening saw a huge crowd eating, drinking, and enjoying the balmy winter weather before the big moment -- the actual awards.
The big winner of the evening was Blue Collar restaurant in Miami, which took home awards for best fries and best restaurant. Broward/Palm Beach winners included Charm City (Best Burger), Mojo Donuts (Best Doughnut), and Rolling Stove (Best Food Truck Broward/Palm Beach).More »
