In 2009 South Florida Food Blogger Burger Beast wanted to honor the unsung heroes of the comfort food scene in South Florida with awards. His “Burgie Awards”, the first of its kind were a huge hit so much so that South Florida Restaurants and Food Trucks now display their “Burgie Awards” with pride for all to see. Voting for the 2013 Burgie Awards took place on BurgerBeast.com from November 2012 through January 9, 2013. The results are in and tallied; the Burger Beast and his team of food lovin’ enthusiasts have quite a show planned for this Saturday night in Fort Lauderdale at Esplanade Park. This event marks the “Burgies” first extravaganza in Broward County. Over 25 of the best Food Trucks and comfort food serving restaurants in South Florida will be on hand selling their finest eats and to libate the grub Brown Distributing will be selling some of their rockin’ Craft Beers.
Representing the brick & mortar side of comfort food is: Azucar Ice Cream Company, Blue Collar, Latin House Burger & Taco Bar, & Pincho Factory.
The South Florida Food Trucks that will be in attendance serving up their finest are: AZ Canteen, B.C. Tacos, BITE Gastrotruck, Bocaditos, Che Grill, Cheeseburger Baby, Daddy’s Grill, Dim Ssam a Gogo, Dolce Gourmet Cupcakes, El Rey de las Fritas, Fireman Derek’s World Famous Pies, The Fish Box, HipPOPs Handcrafted Gelato Bars, Jefe’s Original Fish Tacos, Killer Pasta, Marlie’s Delights, Mr. Good Stuff, Ms. Cheezious, Mushaboom, Palate Party, Purple People Eatery, The Rolling Stove, Slow Food Truck, Sugar Rush & Treehouse Truck
