The Burgerliscious Festival took place last night at Fred B. Harnett/Ponce Circle Park in Coral Gables and was an amazing event.
The event showcased burgers from over 20 different restaurants including Por Fin, the Local Craft Food & Drink, the Biltmore Hotel, Route 9, Two Sisters, Crave, Mortons, Just James, 1862 and Fritz & Frans Bierhaus.
Each restaurant offered a signature slider and there was beer provided by Samuel Adams and cocktails provided by Jack Daniels.
There were performances by Fusik and ArtOfficial, which provided the official soundtrack to the event.
We were lucky enough to be one of the judges at the event along with Burger Beast, Fred Gonzalez of Miami.com, and CBS4’s Natalia Zea.
As you can already imagine, our job was a tough one! We had to try every burger, rate it and then decide which ones were our favorite. All the burgers were amazing. The decision was a tough one. Overall, we were happy with our choices and our outcome.
The winners were:
- 1st Place : 1862 Room at the Westin Colonnade *Best in Bun Winner*
- 2nd Place : Morton’s
- 3rd Place : Just James & Two Sisters
We cannot thank everyone enough who put the 1st annual Burgerliscious Festival together. The event was great and we cannot wait till next year. We were thrilled to be apart of this great new event and hopefully we can come back next year as a judge again.
Big thanks to Mary Rego over at The Brand Collective.
