The Best Burger In Florida Uses Donuts As An Ingredient

What makes a good burger? Some would say it's the meat, whether you prefer bison, turkey, or good old ground beef. Others would say it's the temperature, whether you like it blood-red rare or all the way well-done. Still others would say it's the toppings, whether you take your burger plain, with the classics (American cheese, lettuce, and tomato) or smothered in condiments.

While all of the above factors are important in building the perfect burger, there's one thing that often gets overlooked: the bun. Sure, you can have a regular Kaiser roll, a potato bun, or even a pretzel bun. But at Thee Burger Spot in Tampa, Florida, you can take it a step further by swapping your bun for two glazed doughnuts. At this point, you're either very excited by that option or very disgusted. Regardless, however, the over-the-top order has gained quite the reputation in the South, and it has been dubbed the best burger in Florida

People wait all week for 'The Glazed One'

Known as 'The Glazed One' on the menu, the creation consists of a bacon cheeseburger sandwiched between two whole Krispy Kreme glazed donuts. If it sounds like a lot, it is. One Yelp reviewer says the burgers are so massive, she could easily split it with her husband and still be full. Each burger is cooked to order, and according to fans, it's worth waiting those few extra minutes. Other Yelp reviewers raved about how juicy and flavorful the burger is, with some calling it the best burger they've ever eaten. "The glazed burger was perfectly made and the best combination of sweet, savory and salty," one person wrote

One thing to note: A play on the OG 'Luther Burger' (which started at a bar in Georgia and became popular at state fairs across the country), 'The Glazed One' is only available on Fridays and Saturdays at Thee Burger Spot — so be sure to schedule your restaurant stop with that in mind. This really gives a whole new meaning to TGIF, right?!
