The sunshine state specializes not only in sugar white sands, but also flavorful, delectable burgers. You can work up quite an appetite spending the day swimming and playing in the hot sunshine.

We’ve narrowed down all of the state’s options to this group of seven award-winners. They were selected based on unique menu items, customer reviews, fresh ingredients, previous awards, and of course, burger quality.

Congratulations to all that made our list!
