IMG_20150828_123146With its cozy charm, friendly staff and award winning burgers, Charm City Burger has solidified itself as hometown favorite. Their menu has a few pre-built burger selections, but the beauty of this place is you can build your own burger at a good price. Since there were so many options, I decided to let the staff guide my selection. I ended up ordering the daily special The “Southern Belle”.

IMG_20150828_124930The 6 oz burger was the perfect size for lunch. It came covered in munster cheese, spicy bbq sauce, haystack onions and creamy bacon cole slaw. In the original recipe, garlic aioli was included but I asked that it be put on the side. It ended up being a vital part of the burger because it was so good, that I added it back in. Instead of the classic hand-cut fries, I opted for the sweet potato fries.

IMG_20150828_125722As I was enjoying The “Southern Belle” burger, I looked over and saw the staff making milkshakes. The one thing I was not told about before heading to Charm City Burger was their legendary handmade milkshakes. Trust me, if I had known that the little burger joint that could was making milkshakes from scratch I definitely would have added that to my order as well. Oh well. It just gives me a little reason to sneak away from my desk for a midday treat.

If burgers are not your thing, Charm City Burgers still has you covered. There are vegetarian options, chicken sandwiches and wings, and non-beef burger varieties as well. If you are ever in the area, do not get caught up with the chain burger joints. Visit Charm City Burger for a handmade, old-fashioned burger done the right way.


Just a girl. Who loves food. Meat and potatoes is the traditional midwestern cuisine, but I’m not a typical midwestern kind of girl. I’m from Ohio originally but my father’s Army travels have taken me everywhere from Savannah, GA to Wiesbaden, Germany. Along the way I picked up a love of relocating (I am a Fort Lauderdale native now) and unique cuisines. I call myself the “reluctant foodie” because I ended up trying new foods as a result of health issues. With a clean bill of health now, I still venture out to find the most delicious and interesting cuisines around. I am partial to Italian food and sushi especially. Seafood is my weakness, literally, as I love it so but am deathly allergic to it. I am one of those infamous “can cook but prefers not to” types, but recently I have begun renewing my skills in the kitchen. I am newer to the South Florida area and contributing to Girls on Food has finally given me a reason to venture all over town to find the best food the city has to offer. I love a good “hole in the wall” restaurant with great unexpected food and can’t wait to share the pocket gems with you!
