Sometimes it’s just nice to know where to find the best burger in town. It’s sort of like a north star. Worst case scenario - maybe the restaurant you had reservations at falls into a sinkhole - you can always just head towards the burger, and Lokal is where Miami’s burger compass points. It’s all about the meat here. The patties are a perfect (and local) blend with the ideal fat ratio. Just skip the burger with the donut bun and you should be fine. They have a not-so-secret milkshake speakeasy attached to the dining room too. It’s modeled to look like the owner’s childhood kitchen, has PBR in a washing machine, and might inspire you to start being more creative with your own appliances.
