Learning the formula for the perfect burger has been a highly sought after feat. There are as many variaties of America’s comfort food staple as there are people who enjoy eating them. And it's safe to say Miami has the most diverse offerings.

For some, it is that the soft, juiciness of the patty within; for others, the right bun and sauce seal the deal. One’s choice of toppings bring texture and depth, which lock all the goodness that makes the burger a go-to meal any time of the day.

From Cuban fritas to sweet and savory options, Miami has plenty of headliners. Here are the 14 options that are worthy of a try.

This list is in no particular order.
