Pincho Factory brings its burgers to Fort Lauderdale


Pincho Factory Fort Lauderdale

6234 N. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale, 954-900-5470,

This Miami-based burger and kebab chain, founded in 2010 by three cousins, has opened its second Broward County location, joining a restaurant in Pembroke Pines.

“Surprisingly, the crowd there was very excited to try some of our signature items, like the Tostón and Fritanga burgers (both $8.49), which is Latin-centric cuisine typically popular in Miami,” co-founder Otto Othman says. “We didn’t expect that.”

Housemade cilantro sauce tops the Egg’In Burger with fried egg ($7.99) and Perfecto Burger with caramelized onions and potato sticks ($7.49). Three renditions of hot dogs are made with kosher beef ($3.99-5.99).

The pinchos entrees allow customers to pick from six styles, such as Latin or Mediterranean, to build chicken, steak or shrimp skewers into a wrap, sub, rice bowl or salad ($8.95-$9.45).

The brand’s own beer, 627 Ale ($6.27), is brewed by Wynwood Brewing.

Lunch and dinner are served daily amid an industrial vibe with steel accents, TVs, multishaded reclaimed wood wall, blond wooden tables, black banquette, bare-bulb pendant lighting and an open kitchen.

“Every new location we open, we like to hire a local artist to paint a mural on the wall to reflect the neighborhood,” Othman says.

Up next: a location in Sunrise in the spring.
