A new craze has taken over elevating everything we’ve ever known about a burger to a whole new level. It’s common knowledge that nothing screams “America” more than hunks of ground beef served between two buns, but let’s get real – you’re in Miami, so we’re naturally going to kick it up a notch.
Having opened in early 2012, Lokal took center stage as much more than an average Burger Joint. This family owned restaurant takes pride in sourcing from local farms right here in Florida and makes everything from ketchup and desserts to salad dressings from scratch. Not only does LoKal use fresh, grass-fed beef and features the best ingredients available in the sunshine state, but it also uses all of their electricity from solar and wind power.
As you know, the Miami lifestyle is all about doing it bigger and better. This rule is applied to every aspect of life—especially food. So if you’re looking to eat on the edge, the Frita burger, by LoKal’s owner Kush, will reveal a whole new world that your taste buds have been seeking for decades. This pressed burger is topped with guava jelly, melted Gruyere and stuffed with potato sticks, crispy bacon and mystery sauce.
Like to think outside the bun? This is where your Childhood Dream will come true, literally. “My Childhood Dream” is a donut cut in half, seared on the outside and served with a 7oz burger, American cheese and candied bacon.
As if their burger creations weren’t enough to entice you, the entire restaurant is made of trash that’s been up-cycled and turned into works of art. But that’s not all. This pooch-friendly restaurant has launched a dog-specific menu inspired by their mascot, YeYo the French bulldog. This menu includes “Marmaduke’s meatloaf” or “YeYo’s Chicken & Rice”, both entrées landing at a reasonable $6. Make this canine meal complete with YeYo’s No Bullshit Brown Ale for a nominal price; homemade organic dog biscuits and fresh water are free of charge.
LoKal is located right on Grand Avenue in the Commodore Plaza and open 7 days a week.
