8 oz. Burger Bar

High-quality burger joint in South Beach.

What We Had:

I had the Melrose--an 8 oz. Grass-fed beef patty cooked to order topped with a tomato compote and caramelized red onions.

My DH had the build-your own burger with white cheddar, avocado, fried egg and roasted garlic aioli.

Both burgers were cooked to a perfect mid-rare.

We split an order of fries as well, which were kick-ass.


Cute, black and white with a "downtown" feel.


There was an inordinate number of wait staff while we were there--13 at one point for a small dining room. We had no issues with our service, though we did see one table have a complete meltdown. Good thing the owners' phone number is printed right on the menu.


I have seen reviews complaining about the wait time, and we didn't wait an inordinate time for our burgers. I expect that if you order a mid-well to well done burger it would take awhile, like with any beef. We would definietly go back--if for no other reason than to try the menu items like fried cheese curds and olives.
