The second annual Burgerlicious was blessed with a seasonably crisp night that begged for the good people of Coral Gables to break out the jackets and come out to enjoy sliders, beer, and music from about two dozen local restaurants.
Hungry burger seekers "shopped" the restaurants as chefs extolled the virtues of their meaty wares. Chef Josh Wahler from Crave, who offered two burger options, talked up his pork and ginger burger, while The Bar's Stretch extolled the virtues of his short rib slider with Jack Daniels.
In the traditional category, Route 9's beef patty had a melt-in-your-mouth quality, and Rok:Brgr went uptown with a Kobe and brie slider. Other notables were Pincho Factory's burger, served with Copperpot's sriracha for a kick and Elevation Burger for an all-American cheeseburger in paradise.

Pretty little Shackburgers, all in a row.
You simply cannot have burgers without beer.
Can't you just smell that glorious meat?
Nadal at Pincho Factory offered a well-balanced sweet and savory burger.
Not a carnivore? Veggie and turkey burgers were available and Red Koi brought sushi.
