Time Out says

Wynwood’s top burger joint has landed at Time Out Market Miami. Before that happened, we tasted the food, reviewed the restaurant and, ultimately, recommended Kush for the market. Here’s why:

You’ll find Kush on the outskirts of Wynwood, where it’s sat since the booming art district’s early days, before parking garages and the condo development tsunami hit the streets. Kush, though, is still more or less the same. And that’s a good thing. Head there on a weekend night and you’ll probably have to wait—that’s also a good thing. A Kush server will usher you to an adjacent room, which is equal parts craft-beer bar, Santería botanica and an abuela’s kitchen. It’s really, really cool. Honestly, when we go to Kush, we kind of pray for a 30-minute delay so we can head next door and have a drink.

Once in Kush’s narrow quarters, you’ll soon realize why these burgers are legendary in Miami. For one thing, most people will be eating one. Made from grass-fed Florida cows, the patties are cooked to peak, juicy perfection and magically paired with the restaurant’s selection of local brews. The sides (try the gator bites) and supporting sandwiches—sourced mostly from local farm-grown ingredients—are also killer, if you can will yourself to branch outside of those holy burgers.

But that’s a tough task: We’ve sampled almost everything on the menu by now, but we still can’t resist ordering a burger when we’re at Kush. It’s impossible.
