Conestoga's Restaurant on Main Street in Alachua used to make a really good burger. It's been a while since I was up that way for lunch. Might be time for a road trip!

Went to Burger and Beer Joint today--there is a location on Miami Beach, but we went to the one at Mary Brickell Village:

http://bnbjoint.com/

The burgers were EXCELLENT--I went all out on a 1 lb. Waygu cheeseburger, no regrets even at $18. The have "specialty" burgers, but you can just construct your own (a one pound angus would have been $12, and they have half pound burgers, too). The fries were fine, bit we really liked the fried pickle chips and mushroom fries even more. The have the proverbial 99 bottled beers to choose from, plus a shitload of others on tap.

A friend of mine was in town for the weekend, so last night we had the vegetarian Indian pigout at Woodlands, then this carnivore meltdown today--yin and yang, I guess.

Anyway, go for it.

I ate at this place yesterday in Lauderdale by the Sea. It was great. It's a five guys-style restaurant, and they serve beer.

Went to ROK:BRGR in Himmarshee Village today. R:B has received some awards as the best burger in Broward (New Times, for one) and it was a damn fine burger (I went Waygu again). Certainly it belongs for consideration with Charm City or Gilbert's or any of the other top gourmet burger places In Broward. But in no way, shape or form does it top Burger & Beer Joint down in Miami-Dade.

To be the champ you have to beat the champ.

Next.

Their regular beef is great, the Waygu is ridiculously great.

Those mushroom fries and the pickle chips are great too. They also have duck fat fries for the crazy decadent. 99 beers, too.

Are you at one on South Beach (never been there myself) or Mary Brickell village?

Mice Infestation....This place should be closed. I went to this place expecting a decent burger but I found a mice infestation with a side order of animal planet. I got to this place and after placing my order I started hearing squeals, to my amusement they were not Alvin and the Chipmunks. What I heard were mice running around the door and constantly sneaking in and out of the restaurant. In addition, there was a Crane around the kitchen window, at first it looked awkward but then I realized why a bird of that size would be in such a place. Well, the bird came for dinner in the same manner as I did. In a period of 10 sec the bird manage to eat two mice coming out of the kitchen window. After the animal show I decided to cancel my order, we mentioned the mice infestation to the waitress and all we got was that there were too many to catch. That was probably the most stupid and negligent excuse ever. This place should really be penalized and closed. I hope that nobody gets sick from eating in this place, hopefully these people will put their sh@t together and clean up. Just avoid this place if you value your health. Show less

Any of these places have root beer on tap (not the cheap stuff you get from a fountain)? I go crazy for a fine root beer with my burger.

John,
I was there two weeks ago and had the 1 pound burger (about $9 with fries). I told the waitress when she brought it that I'd probably need a box to take half with me on my drive home. When the bill came she chuckled and said, "guess you won't need that box", I had eaten it all. One of the best burgers I can recall eating.

For any who want to try...they have a three pounder.
