Popped in on a Tuesday for their build your own burger special. The burger was huge and delicious; I can't recall a better burger out except from memories from my childhood. Childhood memory hamburgers were always the best. These were cooked properly and had the proper amount of toppings, which the customer chooses, which enhanced the burger but didn't overwhelm it. It is obvious that only the finest quality meat is used in the burgers. We tried the breaded fried green beans which were the best I have ever had. We also had the onion rings which while quite tasty were also too greasy to be really enjoyable. There is nothing memorable about the location or the facility itself although it was clean with comfortable seating and a friendly and capable staff. All in all a great burger joint if you are comfortable with $14.00 burgers which isn't too bad for South Beach.

Our second visit to the Burger & Beer Joint was fun & delicious! Cought the happy hour drink and appetizer specials. Fried pickles with homemade ranch and sweet potatoe fries were tasty. Angus half pound burger was cooked to perfection! Onion rings were some of the best we've tasted - HUGE! Our server Randy was really helpful, giving us fabulous suggestions. The relaxed, casual atmosphere is a breath of fresh air in SoBe.

So do yourself a favour and skip all the fancy schmancy restaurants of Miami and head straight to this no frills, no nonsense burger joint! Seriously, we pretty much ate the best burgers we have ever eaten anywhere!
We were in Miami for 5 days and I only wish we had eaten here sooner. We would have been delighted to have had the opportunity to head back. If we weren't about to board a flight home, we'd be back there tomorrow for sure.
Deeeeeeelicious!

If you're in Miami Beach, take the time to head over for some insane burger delicacies! It's off the beaten path but well worth it!

The food is damn good. The server was good. The kitchen stepped into a time machine and never came back - I don't want to overstate the time it took to get two burgers out, but no less than 40 minutes on a not-too-busy day.

Mary, the waitress, was certainly amicable and tried her best. Other diners got their food in the interim, so at least someone was working in the kitchen. How many cooks were working in the kitchen and if there was any kind of supervision is one we can't answer. When the burgers came out, they didnt even have the lettuce tomato and onion that was asked for.
I'd like to go back, but not so sure I will, given management's rather casual approach to customer complaints.
