Shula’s 347 Grill in Coral Gables, Florida

I’ve been wanting to eat at Shula’s Steakhouse for years so it was pretty cool when I received an email inviting me to try out the burgers at Shula’s 347 Grill. Why 347? Don Shula had 347 wins as the Dolphins head coach. So I started with the Crispy Ravioli.

Crispy Ravioli

I had never had fried Ravioli before but I thought it was a great twist on regular raviolis. The ravioli is breaded and deep fried, then served with a side of the red sauce for dipping. This was right up my alley. The sliders I tried next were seared filet medallions topped with caramelized onions, mustard aioli on a small roll with au jus for drowning I mean dipping.

Now these guys made my day. I’ve never been an au jus kinda guy and why dip them when they taste so good all alone. Before I get to the main event I wanted to tell you about the new love of my life at Shula’s 347 Grill, better known as smashed potatoes.

Smashed Potatoes

Their take on mashed potatoes with skins left on and grated cheese on it was a touchdown (I would have said homerun but since we’re at Shula’s). I was prepared to haul home a bucket of it.

Cheese Burger

I was lucky enough to sample three of their burgers. The Cheese Burger (with cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato , diced onions with a side of their seasoned mustard mayo spread), The Pesto Burger (pesto mayo on the top/bottom bun, gruyere cheese, bruschetta tomato mix and shredded parmesan) and The French Onion (with chefs dressing, gruyere cheese, caramelized onions and crushed croutons). I added Applewood Bacon to the Cheese Burger.

The 8oz tri-blend (I wasn’t told which were the 3) patty on a challah bun is the constant between all 3 burgers. All 3 burgers will appeal to 3 different types of folks. The Pesto Burger is not my cup of tea and I do eat bruchetta every once in a while but the pesto mayo was great. I liked it more than I thought I would but the regular Cheese Burger is more my speed. It’s a good choice if you don’t want to go out on a limb and try some craziness. My favorite hands down was the French Onion. It was the right kind of sloppy and such great taste plus the gruyere and caramelized onions. It also had a crunch from the crushed croutons which at first caught me off guard.

The Pesto Burger was a daily special so it might not always be available. The seasoned mustard mayo spread served with the Cheese Burger was so good I slathered it all over my food. I didn’t get to try the Black and Blue Burger which is a menu fixture but it sounded pretty good. I still regret not getting the deep fried Buffalo Chicken sandwich daily special but I had burger business to take care of. You can’t win ‘em all but I got pretty close.

    I was served the skimpiest fish sandwich there. It covered half the bun. NO excuse! Glad your experience was better but I’m not running back.
