Rob's Top 5 Burgers on the Mayan Riviera!

OK, I know. "When in Rome, blah, blah, blah...." However, sometimes, even surrounded by all this glorious ceviche and barbacoa and pollo pibil, you just want a burger; a good old American style hamburger. After all, is there anything quite as lovely a thick juicy burger topped with all your favorite fixin's? I think not. Until just a few years ago, burger aficionados (like my husband) were limited to the thin, overcooked slabs of gray "I don't know what kind of meat" slapped into a stale Bimbo bun and slathered with lime flavored mayonesa. Then, along came Fusion, serving up a proper hamburger, cooked to your temperature of choice and topped with cheese and fresh veggies. This one menu item alone kept us coming in for lunch time and time again and we were satisfied in the knowledge that a fine burger could be had in Playa del Carmen.

so wicky's comes in as the "cheapest" burger on the list at 90 pesos
who woulda thunk it
this, i think, is actually worth the money

i don't think i'm ready to pay 145 pesos for a burger

I have 2 male burger samplers in the family here this month...and they both unanimously agree that Wicky's hands down is their fave! Now from this list they can only compare to Indigo's..so far!..Wicky's patty just had better flavour!

I don't eat meat very often and typically never would order a hamburger in a restaurant but I have ordered Wicky's Wicked Burger 3 times now and I do have to agree that it's one of the best burgers I've ever had - maybe even THE best!

I do not eat very much bread at all any more, but if they will serve me one without a bun, I will try a Wicky burger in November.

Lo-ha burger - doesn't this one come with fries though?
Its still expensive if it does, I understand, but maybe that is why it costs so much.

Ok, nevermind, just went back and re-read it. The one at Indigo Beach club is the one that comes with fries.

Besides being a great burger, the Wicked Burger is enough for 2 people. Best bargain in Playa!
