Best Burger in the Davie/Hollywood/Ft. Lauderdale Area

I am new to the area and I am trying to find my new favorite buger place.

Who do you think has the best burger in town?

So far I have only tried the Quarterdeck, which was great, but I am not ready to give up the search...who else should I check out?

    Flanigan's is great but really it's the same thing as Quarterdeck. Billy's Tavern on SR 84 between University and Pine Island is great; Geronimo's on Univ. in Davie is too. And, surprisingly, GameWorks at Sawgrass has a terrific burger.

      I've also heard that Bill's filing Station makes a great burger but haven't had a chance to try it. From the outside, the place doesn't seem so inviting. Has anyone tried that Big Bear Brewing Co. In Coral Springs? I read somewhere (maybe here), that they had a great burger too)

          I went to the one in Sunrise recently, but didn't get a burger. I had a fantastic Palomilla Steak sandwich instead. Will have to make a return trip for a burger.

          Le Tub by far. Just be prepared for spotty service...

            Listen hear is my 2 cents noooooo burger is worth crappy service and pompous tone for a burger. I will go to charm city, the lodge or my kitchen for that price. I think Le crap sucks for sevice I am not doing it for something I CAN MAKE AT HOME

              I agree with your 2 Cents.. I make a damn good burger at home... so If I am goin to go out and pay for it, I am paying for service as well. I hate places that think their sh*t don't stink.

                Jack's, 5 Guys, SouthPort has a decent bacon cheeseburger, and I think it's only like $3.25

                Another vote for Le Tub. Best burger of my life. I went one Friday evening at 7pm and was told there would be a 2-hour wait for grill food. Went back at 9pm and was served immediately. Service was fine.

                  I used to really like Le Tub, but in the last few years I've found its not worth the drive and I no longer like it as much as Char Hut or even Five Guys. The only still great thing is the view these days, but that must be what you're paying for in terms of price and service.

                    Although my rec is not recent, it is from about 18 months ago, so i guess I must have gooten very lucky, because NO WAY would I put 5 Guys or Char Hut in the same league.
