Hmmmm, there's a Five Guys and a Shake Shack on South Beach. Sounds like a good reason for a two-burger lunch!
I've been trying to do the same with Five Guys and In-N-Out ever since INO opened up one of their first Texas stores only three miles from where I sit writing this. It's been open 10 days and the drive-thru lines still stretch 1/2 mile in two directions and they still have 50 - 100 walk-ups milling about in their parking lot. We'll try again tomorrow (Sunday).
BTW: just how did Shake Shack - which I would classify as a "botique burger restaurant" (similar to our Twisted Root here in the Metroplex) - get into this contest? Their store in the Flatiron District looks to be a $5MM build-out and I assume their South Beach location is similarily "fabulous". Do the authors/publishers of this "contest" have an undisclosed pecuniary interest in its outcome? What the heck, why not broaden the "contest" and throw in Peter Luger's and Morton's - they have burgers on their menus as well?!
