The Jucy Lucy was created in Minnesota, but the Smashburger is the current king of the court back in the MPLS/STP metro area. I’ve been keeping an eye out for my first Florida smash. It was a beach day that turned into a burger day. St. Pete was the destination. A damn good Smashburger was the prize!
This is your classic Smashburger done right. Two 3oz. brisket, short rib & chuck beef patties, smashed thin, getting that nice char we love. Seasoned and juicy just enough to satisfy. The American cheese is melted beautifully. It’s a nice soft local bakery brioche bun that’s toasted lightly. The Burger Sauce is a tasty blend of pickles, ketchup & mustard, and I wish I had even more of it.
The BCB burger is the same as their Classic burger, but they add a couple slices of perfectly cooked bacon and they throw on some nicely textured caramelized onions. This is what you look for in a Smashburger. It’s worth a stop if you want to experience one of the Best Burgers in St. Pete!
I’m going to say the meat to bun ratio can easily handle a third patty. You can add one if you desire. I will. Let me know. Two works just fine as well.
I loved the bigger, thicker style fries that were salted nicely and the smoked paprika based fry sauce is wonderful. Get a couple sides of it.
