DGB is operated by the same ownership as the former Mia at Biscayne and occupies part of that club's two-level space -- redone with pop-postered interior. Outdoors is a sprawling patio/lounge with a full bar, and while you might not want to linger at a McDonald's terrace for long no matter how nicely designed, there are strong incentives for doing so here: 20 top craft brews ($5.15), domestic and imported beers ($3.50 to $5.50), Scotch on the rocks ($7), mojitos ($6), rum and Cokes ($5). The signature Damn Good Burger is a single, somewhat thin eight-ounce patty (hard to believe this is a half-pounder) on a soft potato bun burnished with the namesake letters. The beef was buttressed by lettuce, too-large chunks of red onion, a tomato slice the color of cantaloupe, little potato sticks, and a slightly spicy ketchup/mayonnaise-based sauce. The beef is a mix of Black Angus chuck, short rib, and brisket that is "humanely raised, hormone free, " and, in burger form, $5.99. The signature DGB burger came very well-done, fatless, and extremely dry; those potato sticks didn't help moisten it either (the menu, incidentally, states all burgers are cooked medium unless otherwise requested). There also the option to BYOB (build your own burger) by taking a single or double stack ($4.99 or $6.99) and adding any of six cheeses for 75 cents and a choice of bacon, avocado, chili, coleslaw, or mushrooms for a buck apiece. The flavor of the DGB beef seemed better in the slightly less well-done bánh mì burger -- same patty but with a bacon-thin cap of pork belly, pickled carrot shreds, cilantro leaves, and mild jalapeño rings. With all of those distractions, it's in fact a tasty burger ($7.99). Another signature is a black-and-blue with black-peppered bacon and blue cheese ($6.70). Curly fries and onion rings pass muster, as does a thick shake.
