$5 Burgers

Posted: Updated:

Monday, Monday can't trust that day. The weekend's over and the work week begins. There's a new reason to never have a blue Monday ever again thanks to a trio of SoFlo restaurants, Monday's a great day for your palette and your wallet.

Mondays just got really good. Three Fort Lauderdale eateries are getting your week off to a great start with $5 burgers. First stop, Tap 42.

Andrew Balick: "So we do Prohibition Burger Mondays here at Tap 42 and we offer our 8-ounce beef blend burger which is chuck tenderloin and strip loin."

Not much about the prohibition burger is prohibited. You get plenty of beef and plenty of bang for your buck.

Andrew Balick: "Comes with fries pickle, special sauce dijonnaise, lettuce, tomato and onion."

The deal is special the title of the burger, not so much.

Andrew Balick: "It was an original name that when we first rolled out our original menu at Tap 42 and it stuck. It's become a crowd favorite so we're not gonna mess with a good thing."

The one-day deal is way for Tap 42 to thank their customers.

Andrew Balick: "We want to give our guests great value and let them know we appreciate them."

Over at Tarpon Bend, they call their Monday night delight "the big cheese" meat lovers, take note this is one serious patty.

Peter Boulukos: "We have a special blend, proprietary blend that we make. It has short rib it also has chuck it has brisket and rib eye."

Once all that comes together, then the magic really starts.

Peter Boulukos: "We have a special dry blend of spices that we use and then we have our own special toppings on there."

The "big cheese" is plated with a big batch of fries. It's an offer not many can refuse.

Peter Boulukos: "It starts at five o'clock and they are in the seats at ten to five waiting."

There's a simple reason why the "big cheese" is a big hit.

Peter Boulukos: "We got the best burger plain and simple."

American Social is also in on Monday meat madness. You can hit the Las Olas hot spot for their "AM-SO" burger.

Rick Mijares: "It's our 8-ounce prime grade beef American, cheese Boston, lettuce, tomato, onion and our special AM-SO sauce."

Look at it this way, the AM-SO burger is an inexpensive way to exhale.

Rick Mijares: "Well after a big weekend people they wind down you know, people spend a lot of money shopping and dining out over the weekend so it's a nice way to give everyone a little break."

There's more to do at American Social on Mondays than just chow down on a burger. You can test your knowledge of pop culture as well.

Rick Mijares: "We offer a trivia game where a company comes in with a trivia host, they pass out small booklets to anyone that wants to participate, and they total up the scores we offer prizes."

Anyway you slice it this is such a good deal.

Rick Mijares: "$5 burgers works every time."

    When I got the assignment this week to do a story on VH1's new "Naked Dating" show for Deco Drive, I was beyond intrigued and not because I needed a date, either.

    When I first heard that the Crop Top was back in style, I walked straight into my bedroom, stood in front of the mirror, lifted my shirt, turned to the side and stuck my gut out as far as it would go.

    Mattie McDonald was one of the prettiest women I'd ever seen. She had light green eyes, dark brown hair and milky white skin. When she wafted by me, she smelled of lavender, honeysuckle and some other hypnotizing perfume I couldn't quite put my finger on. I spent a lot of my spare time daydreaming about her and not just because I wanted to know her. Ultimately, I wanted to be her.
