In case you didn't know, May is National Burger Month, and May 28 is National Burger Day.

South Florida has a ton of burger spots. And finding the best — the juiciest, the biggest, the most gaudily topped ones — isn't easy. Some are exotic meats that can be ordered with mix-and-match gourmet toppings. Others are basic patties executed to perfection and made with quality ingredients. And then there are those that are best paired with the perfect glass of wine or booze-spiked milkshakes.

Need a guide to the best deals and burgers around? Here are just a few of South Florida's finest burgers to commemorate this epic food holiday:
