Burger & Beer Joint Offers Fried Food Galore
Many people who live on South Beach sing the praises of Burger & Beer Joint for its mouthwatering burgers that range from $12 to $39. Hungry patrons crowd the favorite local hideaway off Bay Road in until 5 a.m. every day. Decorated with brick walls and wood booths, the joint is separated into three areas: the B&B restaurant, the B&B lounge, and the B&B sports bar.
The eatery, which has been open less than a year, might be famous for its burgers, but the real star here is all the fried goodness. The menu of fried food runs the gamut from vegetables to desserts. There are French fries, mushroom fries, zucchini fries, onion rings, crispy dill pickles, and even deep-fried Twinkies. There are so many options that your mind will probably explode when you try to decide what item you want to fill your belly.
