Suncoast View: Best Burgers on the Suncoast

National Burger Month is like a birthday or anniversary celebration if you are a burger fanatic. There are so many delicious juicy burgers on the Suncoast.

Libby's, Patrick's, Capital Grill, Oak & Stone, Fleming's, Knick's tavern, Longhorn and so many more we will have part two and part three coming.

This week we feature the Sea Porch Grill at the Don Cesar hotel, known for their annual burger month menu. With topping like foie gras, double stack with bacon, brisket and two cheese and an All- American classic, their selection is worthy of a day on the beach and a burger feast.

Burger Fi, our favorite for fast casual, offers one of the best veggie burgers in town, not to mention the CEO burger and the offer for lettuce instead of the bun, which by the way is relish.

JR's Packinghouse Cafe is open again after a fire 9 months ago. Just in time for $5.00 burger Mondays, the favorite dive in town offers a monster version of Cuban pork, sautéed onions, Swiss and a giant burger on grilled Cuban bread.

Made, an American Restaurant is the guilty so good pleasure In Town. Best topping is the sunny side up egg and their millionaire bacon. Huge burgers with creative toppings and Niman Ranch ground beef. An ice cold local craft beer and a burger is like a vacation day at first bite.
