BURGERS have become the "NEW CRAZE" in today's food world. Walk into almost ANY restaurant, and there is a burger of some sort on the menu. Some beef, some chicken, some homemade, some frozen, some veggies....all coming in different shapes and sizes. From sliders, to single patties, even double and triple patties, these burgers have become a crowd favorite in almost any food establishment.
Our Miracle Mile Family hasn't followed behind in this respect either. Since day one when my grandfather opened the first Miracle Mile in 1949, there was a simple hamburger on the menu. A freshly prepared ground beef patty with "you call it" toppings on it. Nowadays, you cannot simply put a burger on the menu and expect it to sell itself. You have to be creative with the cheese, condiments, sauces and breads. We revamped our burgers to stand out in this competitive marketplace, and hope you all have the opportunity to try them at some point in the near future.
Our Ellis Island Burger is to honor and respect my grandfather's first burger that he put on the menu. Tying back to our New York roots, the Ellis Island Burger gives you the option of loading up on your favorite cheese and condiments, creating a simple burger the way you want it. It may not be incredibly special to anyone else, but to you, it's done YOUR way!
The Broadway Burger is a step up from a simple Bacon Cheeseburger that we had on our menu before. Using a freshly prepared 1/3 pound ground beef chuck patty, we stack some melted cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, crisp bacon and our famous Miracle Mile Dressing! Served on a fresh Kaiser Roll with some hot french fries and a scrumptious pickle.... It truly does deserve a standing ovation as you would more than likely give a Broadway Show in NYC!
A different spin on a typical "burger" is our Bronx Chicken Sandwich. We take a simple four and half ounce chicken breast, melt freshly cut pepperjack cheese, add lettuce, tomato, red onion and grilled jalapeños, and throw some of our famous BBQ sauce on the top part of your bread of choice! It is a unique mix of flavors, some sweet and spicy.... but you gotta be tough like the Bronx to handle it! A great sandwich if you enjoy indulging in flavor.
Then we have a beast of a burger... The Empire State Burger (pictured in the photo)! Two 1/3 pound beef patties, melted cheddar on each patty, lettuce, tomato, crispy bacon, french fried onion strings and our famous Miracle Mile dressing create this behemoth of a burger.... It's hard to plate and keep standing sometimes because of the size and weight of the burger itself. Hungry??? This one should take care of your appetite quite quickly. Maybe we should create a "food challenge" starting with this burger! What do you think?
If you have an idea for a great burger that you would like to see on our menu, please feel free to let us know! In the mean time, stop by when you get a chance and check out our new burger options for something different at Miracle Mile! Look forward to seeing you all soon!
