Sef Gonzalez, Burger Beast
Why he’s in the Food 50: Sef Gonzalez, aka Burger Beast, is South Florida’s preeminent food blogger. His kingdom comprises all comfort foods — burgers, hot dogs, fried chicken — but his wheelhouse is made-in-Miami specialties like fritas, flans, croquetas and Cubanos. Miami-Dade native Gonzalez has turned a hobby into his full-time gig, hosting frequent events and chilling at food-truck gatherings from Hollywood to Kendall. What makes Gonzalez extra-legit is that he doesn’t just talk the talk; one look at his frita-full Instagram feed proves the dude knows about cheesy deliciousness.
Where to find him: Multiple events.
