Every once in a while, people are overcome with the insatiable desire for a big, juicy, hamburger. However, finding the right place to satisfy your cravings can be more difficult than it seems. Fortunately, Pincho Factory is an easy answer. With several locations throughout Miami, Pincho Factory offers a unique menu featuring delicious gourmet burgers, as well as other tasty entrees.

Pincho Factory strives to make each and every one of their meals reach a level of quality that is only attainable through the amount of care that they put into their dishes. On top of being high quality, Pincho Factory offers several varieties of tasty and innovative burgers, such as the Toston Burger which replaces a traditional bun with Tostones, or the Fritanga Burger which is topped with a slice of crispy fried cheese. There is also a vegetarian option that features a black bean patty instead of the traditional meat. If you’re not into burgers, Pincho also offers bowls called Pinchos, hot dogs, and chicken sandwiches.

“The Fritanga Burger is my favorite because it’s like the actual definition of mouth watering, and it’s different from all other burgers since it’s topped with fried cheese,” junior Stephanie Revuelta said.

Typically, restaurants that serve such elaborate burgers have steep prices and and a more refined ambiance. Once again, Pincho Factory stands out by providing a more casual and family-friendly environment, with a menu that is both delicious and affordable. As locations open up all over Miami, including one in Coral Gables, it’s not that hard to find one close by. Recently, they opened one of their newest locations as far away as Orlando.
