About the author (2019)

In September of 2008 Sef "BurgerBeast" Gonzalez opened up a blogger account with the hopes to document his burger excursions around South Florida and beyond. You can also catch his Top 25 Burgers list for the Miami Herald every May during National Burger Month. He began to branch out beyond burgers and cover all facets of comfort food along with some food history and trivia. Burger Beast has been all over South Florida television and was featured on Travel Channel's Burger Land Miami episode. He is also the owner of the world's only museum dedicated to the history of burgers, comfort food, and advertising, the Burger Museum by Burger Beast located at Magic City Casino in Miami, Florida.
