Is it me or does Miracle Mile has a lot more casual eateries now than ever before? The second Florida location of California chain, Fatburger, opened Saturday on the strip, and we obligingly stopped in for lunch.
Burger options range from Small (Baby Fat Burger) to XXXL (Triple King).
They come with lettuce, tomato, mayo, mustard, pickles, onions and relish. Cheese, bacon, chili or an egg can be added on.
Other menu options include a chicken sandwich, a hot dog or chili dog and a Fat Salad Wedge with or without Chicken. There are also veggie and turkey burgers.
My 2.5-ounce Baby Fat Burger ($3.49) was good. Not amazing but good. A grilled chicken sandwich with grilled onions, cheese, bacon and mustard was better. I think it was the accompaniments, so I may just try the same mix on a burger next time.
