I’m a cheese girl. I love cheese, all types of cheeses. Slap a piece of cheese on a warm hamburger and it’s perfect. Sargento, makers of the all-natural, never processed cheese is looking for the ultimate cheeseburger and they found it in Miami!
Miami’s Filling Station has the BEST Cheeseburger!
A local restaurant might just have the BEST cheeseburger! The Filling Station in Miami has put together the The Filling Station Cheeseburger, whose ingredients make my mouth water. They are in the running for Sargento’s America’s Ultimate Cheeseburger, and I think they are going to win! Have you voted for them yet?
We headed there today on a mom & daughter field trip. We were not let down – at all. The ambiance was cool. Photos of patrons enjoying their burgers adorned the wall. I ordered the Sargento contest contender and my daughter a plain burger with grilled onions – of course! My burger was honestly, and I mean honestly, the best burger I’ve ever eaten. It was tremendous is size. The flavors were incredible. I was ready to see Anthony Bourdain walk in, sit down, have a cold beer and lick his fingers after his 1st bite of the burger. Yes, that good. Burgers were served with tater tots and an assortment of delicious homemade dipping sauces.
I’ve gotten hold of the recipe, and I encourage you to make it! For those in the Miami area, you need to head downtown to try it yourself. You won’t regret it.
