There are five different Taste Rite locations in South Florida, but the one on 2nd Ave in Miami is where all the magic happens. Patties are baked there and then shipped to the other locations throughout South Florida. Like most mass-producing bakeries, there is a little filler in their beef patties, so it’s more of a meat paste than minced meat inside. But if you like a super flaky, golden crust and a generously sized patty, this is the place to go. The Taste Rite slogan is, “One bite is never enough!” which is why you might want to try a few different patties while you’re here. There are nine options to choose from, including a lobster and shrimp, but unlike most places on this guide, Taste Rite doesn’t offer a mild beef option.
