The nation’s oldest city is famous for a lot of things. An iconic lighthouse. A preserved Civil War-era fort. Gorgeous beaches. Eclectic shopping. And possibly the most charming downtown you will ever see. But there’s one more thing that St. Augustine does better than most— food! The city has an endless array of dining options. Here you’ll find romantic waterfront dining, friendly family dining, casual coffee shops, and delicious sweet treats and ice cream.
But sometimes you’re craving a good, old-fashioned American staple— a burger.
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here are our top 5 picks for the best burger in St. Augustine.
Old Twenty Three Burger House- 123 King Street in St. Augustine
The Old Twenty Three motto— grillin’ and chillin’— sums up this local favorite spot perfectly. This place has it all, from crispy wood-fired pizzas to creamy ice creams and shakes. For the best of both worlds, sink your teeth into the Pizza Burger— an 8-ounce prime patty topped with prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, pepperoni, and marinara sauce. Bellisimo!
Burger Buckets- 3 Cordova Street in St. Augustine
A classic burger joint, Burger Buckets serves up fresh, juicy burgers, crispy fries, and cold drinks. You have to try the Maple Fudge Bacon Burger. It’s a huge patty, grilled to perfection, and topped with gooey cheese and slices of their famous Maple Peppered Fudge Bacon. Yum!
Prohibition Kitchen- 119 St. George Street in St. Augustine
This self-proclaimed “vintage gastropub” has style to spare. Try the outrageous PK Signature Burger— a mouth-watering, half-pound house blend of short rib, brisket, and sirloin. It’s topped with smoked bacon red onion jam (yes, please!), a fried egg, and red dragon cheese. The bun is also branded with the “PK” logo. Order up!
Beachcomber Restaurant- 2 A Street in St. Augustine
Located where A Street meets the ocean, the Beachcomber sits directly on the beach on Anastasia Island. They are so close to the ocean that you’ll find sand beneath your flip flops. Stick with the seashore theme and order a Shipwreck burger— a chargrilled patty topped with fried shrimp and housemade tartar sauce. Ahoy!
The Press- 525 State Road 16 Unit 101 in St. Augustine
This place has captured the coveted title of “Best Burger in St. Augustine” for two years! Which makes The Conquistador a “must-order” when visiting St. Augustine. The burger is stuffed with datil pepper and topped with bacon, chorizo, manchego, and crispy onion straws— and it’s all served on their amazing house-made bread.
