Best Burgers on 30A
Nov. 10, 2016
It’s not just us when we say that burgers and the beach go together like sand and sun. One of the most-asked questions we get around is, “Where’s the best burger on 30A?” Well, there are actually quite a few awesome burgers being whipped up at restaurants on 30A beaches. It’s how you like your burger that will tell you where your best burger on 30A will be.
For example, do you like eating your burger overlooking the ocean? Is live music and a hip dive-bar feel a must-have side for your burger? Do you have to have a craft microbrew or will any chilled drink do?
Dive in on a Burger at Redd’s Fueling Station
We’ll admit that the burger at Redd’s Fueling Station in Blue Mountain Beach has some stiff competition from the other fantastic menu items, but what really sets their Jalapeno Popper Burger apart (other than the cream cheese) is the singing bartender. Awesome drinks and the made-from-scratch menu are undoubtedly other reasons this place has earned accolades as the best new hot spot and one of the top 10 secret bars on 30A.
Savor the Quality at The Craft Bar: A Florida Gastropub
If you love knowing exactly where what you eat comes from, then check out The Craft Bar with locations in Santa Rosa Beach and Miramar Beach (and elsewhere). The Craft Bar uses only locally sourced beef from Heureux. There are no GMO-vegetables, hormones, or other unsavory surprises in their quality beef.
The South Walton Beach location has quite a few beef-based burgers to choose from. These elevated twists on the classic bite include their namesake “the craft bar burger” topped with caramelized onion and served on a brioche bun with your choice of aged gouda, Tillamook cheddar, or point reyes blue cheese. The bison burger is made using house-ground bison, roasted poblano peppers, monetary jack, IPA mustard. Meanwhile, the Cuban pork burger swaps the beef for locally-farmed ground pork and chorizo burger patty served with pulled pork, hickory ham, gruyere, pickles, Dijon and Cuban bread.
Family Friendly Pub Time at Shades Bar & Grill
If you’re looking for a place that checks all of your boxes and those boxes happen to be family-friendly, pub-like, sports bar, then Shades Bar & Grill located in Panama City Beach just past Rosemary Beach on East 30A is the setting. Better yet, the burgers happen to be as on-point as the restaurant.
Be indulgent with the C.C.P Burger (Angus burger, fried egg, pork belly, bacon, cheese) or go classic with the Angus Cheese Burger (Angus beef, cheddar, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle on Kaiser).
A Clear Dinner Winner at Chanticleer Eatery
Craving artful burgers in an artful atmosphere? Then dinner at Chanticleer Eatery in Grayton Beach is the way to go. You can build your own burger with choices of various sauces, dressings, cheeses, and other toppings or pick from the menu. The Bacon Cheddar Guac Burger is pure flavor with fresh guacamole, southwest ranch, crispy bacon and melted cheddar while the Swiss Mushroom & Onion burger is a combination of rich classic flavors with house made garlic aioli, smoky mushrooms and onions, and Swiss.
Beachside Burgers at Pickle’s
Nostalgia is the main ingredient at Pickle’s Beachside Grille in Seaside. The locally-loved walk-up all-American burger grill is pretty well-known for it’s Paradise Burger, which served alongside a basket of Famous Fried Pickles can’t be beat.
This famous outdoor eatery is perfect for getting a classic grilled bite and watching emerald waves crash into the sugar white sand beaches. In fact, the only thing better than the eats is the iconic, laid-back setting and the snapshot moments of you and your family licking your fingers as you savor the flavor of (if only for a moment) having it all. Actually, come to think of it, that’s kind of the case anywhere you got to grab a burger on 30A.
