Can we all just agree that burgers are the great unifier in our nation? Everyone loves a knockout burger. And after much field research, we’ve rounded up 10 tried-and-true spots where you’ll find the BEST burgers on the Space Coast.
Brix Project (Titusville)
Possibly wins the list in terms of a cool, craft burger experience. Located inside a renovated, old industrial-building-turned-brewery complete with a beer garden, this is a hip gathering place to enjoy a unique burger. The creations here are ever-changing, but a staple is the Brix Burger (pork belly, bacon jam, pickled beets, crispy onion & bleu cheese).
Harbor City Diner (Melbourne)
Size is the stand-out detail here. The burgers here are 12 oz! That’s 3 Quarter Pounders from McDonald’s. Pictured is the “Ranch
Burger” – with carmelized onion, ranch, bacon, and cheese. The vibe here isn’t where you’d expect (think dated Greek diner), but the burgers here are unreal.
Copperhead Tavern (Indialantic)
Stacked impressively high and not shying away from hearty ingredients, the burgers here are memorable and fun to eat. A true “tavern” feel here too, with a cozy outdoor eating space.
The Burger Place (Melbourne)
The ever-popular, classic spot for unadulterated burgers, fries, and milkshakes in downtown Melbourne. They make the best buns around (tall, fluffy, shiny beauties) and their vibe is perfectly encapsulates the 1950’s diner.
Rising Tide Tap & Table (Cape Canaveral)
One of Northern Brevard’s best spots for a craft burger (waterfront!) experience. We loved their “Belly Burger” – (pork belly, fig jam, pickled green tomato, white cheddar, bacon on a Brioche bun). Great atmosphere for a casual outdoor gathering on their large patio.
Ember & Oak (Melbourne)
For seriously hungry foodies. The burgers here are stacked tall and proud, and prepared with the best house-made ingredients. Monday nights are “burger night”, where they feature new over-the-top signature burger creations. Pictured is their Breakfast Burger – egg, house-made spam, beef, bacon, AND sausage.
The Burger Inn (Melbourne)
A 50’s themed diner with all the classics, plus some fun, unexpected twists. Example – the “Elvis Burger” , which has peanut butter on it (don’t knock it til you try it!). No fancy presentation, but a fantastic spot when you’re craving simple 50’s diner food done right.
Doghouse Pizza (Melbourne)
The burgers here are larger-than-life. They don’t skimp on the meat, and most are stuffed with cheese and a variety of unique toppings. With over 18 different burgers on their menu, there’s a flavor combination just for you. Come hungry or ready to split!
The Bearded Chef (Melbourne)
Most “playful” award – Chef Brandon (the bearded one) tires of the same-old, same-old and is always trying out new ways to dress up a burger. There’s a funky, hip vibe at this beloved food truck, and the ever-changing menu and specials keep it fun and fresh!
Pub Americana (Cocoa)
The Angus gourmet blended beauties here are nothing short of impressive. They have a great selection here of burgers for anyone’s taste buds, and their parmesan fries that come with are money. Don’t forget to ask about the exotic burger availability – we once tried a great CAMEL burger here (yes, the desert animal with humps) .
