Miami's Ten Best Burgers: Bourbon Steak, Blue Collar, Lokal, and More

"I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today," said Popeye's pal Wimpy. He was clearly the smarter of the pair.

Burgers these days can be made from anything -- lamb, turkey, pork, tuna, vegetables, ostrich. But as most will agree, the best ones are the classic. Give us a good-size hunk of beef, charred on the outside, pink on the inside, seasoned with salt and pepper, and we're in beefy heaven.

JR's Gourmet Burgers in Doral won our 2011 Best of Miami prize, while Five Guys won the Readers' Choice. Here are ten others we love. Please pass the ketchup.
