Boardwalk Fresh Burgers & Fries in Boca Raton

My grandson, Dylan, loves this place and he thinks they have the best fries. I checked out the website and discovered that this burger joint started out as just Boardwalk Fries; adding the "decadent" burgers later on.



This place is just another of the many new-style hamburger joints that are popping up as the hamburger frenzy keeps going. Much the same as Five Guys and Burger Fi that are also opening up new locations weekly.

Charm City Burger Company

Charm City Burger Company's name has been popping up on almost every food blog in South Florida so I thought I really should check them out. I drove right by the place on Hillsboro Blvd in East Deerfield, hit the brakes and swung into the parking lot. I was lucky enough to find a spot around back and walked past the garbage dumpster through the advertised rear door and fell right into the "order here" line.

The place is small, maybe seats twenty or so, and has that "beachy" super laid back atmosphere that you would expect from a walk in place not too far from the surf.
I already knew that I was only interested in getting a hamburger and the same for Michelle. She ordered the "Good Ole" combo. Just a burger with American cheese, lettuce, and tomato; well done (their term is hammered), with fries and a drink for $8.25.

I got the "Cowboy Style" combo: thick cut bacon, cheddar cheese, sauteed mushrooms and grilled onions, also with fries and a drink for $9.75. This burger was juicy and I needed a couple of napkins before I was finished. Both burgers were cooked perfectly and tasted great. The hand cut fries were also very good.

I love burgers and Charm City Burger Company makes one of the best I've had in South Florida. If you are ever "jonesing" for a great tasting hamburger try this place out and I'm sure you will return again and again. Look for me there!

Gilbert's 17th Street Grill

Gilbert's is a little hard to find. It's tucked away in the Harbor Shops of Ft. Lauderdale which is not on 17th street at all. The address is actually 1821 Cordova Road.

I've been there a few times for some family events and was pretty satisfied with the food. But my son sent me a picture of a burger that he enjoyed there and suggested that I stop by and sample one.

Michelle and I popped over the same night that the Miami Heat was playing and there were tons of people standing in line at Duffy's across the parking lot. Gilbert's was very busy also but we were still able to get in and order pretty quickly.

When you enter you go to a counter and place your order which is prepared and then delivered to your table. Our order taker introduced himself as a member of the Gilbert family and said "nobody takes better care of you than family." I was already quite impressed and when I asked "what is the best hamburger to order," he replied with no hesitation, "the brie burger, with bacon and fried onions."



I added an order of fries and Michelle ordered a jumbo kosher hot dog with fries and a couple of self serve fountain drinks. Michelle thought her hot dog was average but complained to me about the fries. She thought they were too greasy and a little "rubbery."


My hamburger was amazing! Cooked perfectly with all the components piled on top. I thoroughly enjoyed it and vowed to be back soon.

If you are in the mood for a great burger I highly recommend Gilbert's 17th Street Grill.

Between The Bun

I finally got a chance to pop into David Korn's Between the Bun in Boynton Beach. It's just east of I95 in the opposite end of the Publix shopping center on Gateway Blvd. Even though it was almost closing time, Dave and his Dad invited us in. They both go way back in NY deli history having owned a few delis in lower Manhattan.
