Pincho Factory In Pembroke Pines Delights Guests With Flavorful Burgers
A new Broward County restaurant is serving up cheeseburgers nestled between two fried plantain "buns."
Pincho Factory, a Latin-inspired burgers and kebab joint, opened Thursday in Pembroke Pines. The fast-casual, street-food-style restaurant servers up burgers as simple as the Pincho, served with potato sticks and pink sauce, or as wild as the Pastelito Burger (yes, that's a patty served in between two pasteles de guayaba).
"We are really proud of our unique twists on our burgers, such as our Toston, Fritanga and Croquetesa burgers," co-founder Otto Othman said. "We love to keep food fun without compromising quality."
The Croquetesa burger, in fact, won the People's Choice Award for Best Burger at the 2015 South Beach Wine & Food Festival Burger Bash. Chicken, steak and shrimp skewers—along with hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, fries and tater tots—are also part of Pincho Factory's repertoire.
Pincho has three locations in Miami-Dade County, and the new Pembroke Pines restaurant is Pincho Factory's first in Broward.
Having grown up in Miami Lakes, Othman said he would often frequent Broward County and felt the area was a natural next step for the restaurant brand.
"Pembroke Pines was our backyard," he said. "The Pines foodie scene is continuously growing. There is a an amazing crowd there, so knowledgeable and excited about food."
While the menu items are the same as those found in Pincho Factory's other locations, Othman said the decor in the new store features an updated look for the brand.
"We finally have the tools to achieve our goals, as far as decor, and we are so psyched," he said. "This store is more industrial, more metal accents than the Miami stores; it is what Pincho Factory should look like."
The chain hopes to further expand with a goal of 20 stores in development along the East Coast by the end of 2016.
