CELEBRATE NATIONAL BURGER MONTH! Top Burger Joints in Pompano Beach and Deerfield Beach
Just in time for the summer season and Memorial Day weekend, May is National Hamburger Month. The Sun-Sentinel recently came up with their best burgers under ten dollars in South Florida list and two local Deerfield Beach restaurants made the list. We also wanted to know where to find the best hamburgers in Pompano Beach so we went to social media to see which ones you picked as your favorites.
Tucker Duke’s Lunchbox
1101 S. Powerline Road, Deerfield Beach, 954-708-2035; 1658 N. Federal Highway, Boca Raton, 561-717-8153; TuckerDukes.com
Tucker Duke’s is a burger joint with some personality. Some unique burgers to try a include the famous Mondragon (six slices of bacon, sunny egg, two slices American, two slices cheddar, Tucker sauce, spring mix and tomato); the Spicy Lola, which won the 2015 riverwalk burger battle. It’s topped with English cheddar, bacon, red onion confit, crisply potato sticks, a jalapeño jam, spring mix and tomato. Or try the Gran Dada, which won the 2015 Boca Raton burger battle. It’s topped with smoked gouda, bacon, chipotle mayo, fried leeks, maple bacon, onion chutney, spring mix and tomato. Plus they have fried pickles and taco tater-tots. EDITORS NOTE: While the Sun-Sentinel listed Tucker Dukes in the “Under $10 category”, many of their hamburgers are priced higher. None the less, it is nice to see Tri-County recognition for a local Deerfield Beach restaurant.

5 Girls Burgers
(954) 783-8889; 2659 E. Atlantic Blvd.
This hole-in-the-wall burger joint is a little more classic than most on this list — juicy, greasy, diner-esque burgers, but they also offer up some interesting variations. Try the “Dime Piece” (a Kobe beef burger with sautéed mushrooms, sautéed onions and white american cheese) or the “Black and Beautiful (a blackened beef burger with blue cheese crumbles and bacon). Plus, they too, have tater-tots.
