Really Expensive Burgers

The last time I was at Feenie’s I had the Feenie Burger. This is a 100% Certified Angus beef burger, served medium with sautéed mushrooms, cheese, bacon and house cut fries. At $14.00, the burger is expensive but not outrageous. However, you can order the burger stuffed with Sautéed Foie Gras and Braised Short Ribs, plus Poutine. That increases the price of $49.00, for a hamburger! Mind you, it is one great tasting burger.

I was telling my friend Tyler about the Feenie Burger and he said the next time I’m in Florida, he’ll take me to The Old Homestead Steakhouse at the Boca Raton Resort and Club, where I will be able to try out this $100 hamburger.


Called “the most decadent burger in the world”, it’s made from two 10-oz patties of Kobe beef, with a dollop of herb butter in-between, and kicked up with lobster mushrooms and micro greens. The burger is served on a Parmesan twist roll. The bill for one burger comes to $124.50 with tax and 18 percent tip. The restaurant will donate $10 from each sale to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. I can’t wait to try it.

I found out that Old Homestead Steakhouse is not the only place where you can get a $100+ burger. DB Bistro Mederne in Manhattan serves a burger that can cost up to $120. The burger starts at $29 – a patty stuffed with black truffles, Foie Gras, and beef short rib meat that has been marinated in red wine for 18 hours.

The Royale burger, introduced three years ago, includes seven additional grams of sliced black truffles and increases the price to $70. If that’s not enough, the Super Royale offers 15 grams of truffles and brings the cost of the burger up to $120. It will be interesting to compare the Royale Burger to the Feenie Burger, since they’re made the same way (except for the tuffles).

What’s the most expensive burger you ever had?
