Fritz And Franz Bierhaus In Coral Gables, Florida

Fritz Sign

A few years ago I celebrated my birthday at Fritz & Franz Bierhaus. It’s an Austrian-Bavarian themed restaurant & bar. I had chosen this location because of the atmosphere not because the food (the movie Beerfest is never too far from my mind). The one thing I remember about that night was that most of the food we attempted to order was not available. I was hoping that history would not repeat itself. There was a Beer Tweetup (which is a Twitter meetup involving beer and while we’re on the subject, you can follow me at @BurgerBeast ) at Fritz & Franz. Chad from Brickell Life was helping to sponsor the event. We had been wanting to get together and just talk burgers. We seized this opportunity to do just that. Over a lengthy and probably well near 2 hour Burger discussion Chad ordered some variety Sausage Plate which name escapes me at the moment. I asked him how it was and his reply was essentially that they’re Sausage.

Jalapeno Burger

Jalapeño Burger

I’m sure he’ll comment on it. What I took that to mean was, there was no big culinary stretch here. My Burger was topped with Jalapeños and BBQ sauce. The burger itself was nothing special, just your average affair. The BBQ sauce on the other hand was very good but that alone could not get the Burger to new heights. Plus I had asked for a Cheeseburger and I received no Cheese.

Pretzel

Pretzel

I left the Pretzel for last, not because it was amazing. It wasn’t. It was your, I’m in the mall let me get a Pretzel (and maybe even those are better) type. Now, the Stone Ground Mustard in a little pot on the table that I used for dipping the Pretzel is stupendous. Honestly, if Chad wasn’t sitting there with me I would have devised a plan to take that Mustard with me. So if you’re coming to Fritz & Franz Bierhaus, have a Beer and enjoy the atmosphere. Burgers are better served elsewhere.

About Burger Beast

I started writing the Burger Beast food blog to tell folks about those little forgotten gems in South Florida. Over the course of the last 5 years or so I've added News, Opinions, & Tips on a variety of Food related subjects. My first love will always be Burgers but Comfort Food is where it's at. At the end of the day I’m a regular dude who writes about a bunch of things I think you should know about.

    The sausage looks like it's not cooked on both sides. I would have given it a lower rating.

    Place is only good for the boots of beer

    DUDE!!! You forgot the Austro-Burgers. They make sliders out of veal and they put some of that sausage gravy on em. Something like that, I can't remember the exact description from the menu. Those things are pretty good. You'll have to try em next time.

    RELAX PEOPLE. I had this in my computer's clipboard for a personal comment I made in Facebook earlier today.

    Given the cheese-less state of the burger it seems apropos.

    Those snausages were straight off the Sysco food distribution truck. There is not much going on in this kitchen and you're better off sticking to boots of beer.

    Oh, and yes, mustard is ridonculously good and potentially worth the effort of snatching for home use.

    Good times nonetheless with the Beast.
