Tio Colo Bocaditos de Helado & Pizza Cubana

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Hialeah, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast

It’s been quite a while, almost 5 years since the Burger Beast blog wrote about Tio Colo’s Bocaditos de Helado (Ice Cream Sandwiches). In that time, they’ve expanded from only selling those little addictive Bocaditos de Helado to adding Pizza Cubana to their food arsenal. If you think it doesn’t get any better than those […]

Let me give you a little background on Killer Melts (and Burgers). Back in 2012 I ate from a food truck called Killer Pasta. I liked the food, actually I was quite enamored with it. Then a few years later the chef/owner Kevin Hase decided to change the concept on the truck to sell Grilled […]

I’m not sure how long I’ve been telling myself that I’m gonna hit up Doggi’s Arepa Bar but I finally dropped in to their location on Biscayne Blvd. I made sure to seat myself by the window to get some natural light action aka how to have the best looking photos. I was familiar with […]

As my fried John and I driving to Pastrami Dan’s we see a rather large advert about Pizza Slice & a drink which hooks both he and I. After shoveling a couple of Pastrami Sandwiches we head over to Valento’s. I’m just hoping that they have a have a half decent slice. The night before […]

It’s been years 5 years since I headed into Medley to eat, at Loven Ovens to be exact. I spent many summers in Medley working with my Dad on his WISE Potato Chips route. Who remember’s Haney’s Market and their Grilled Cheese Sandwiches? Ok, enough of that…I’m getting off topic. Plato’s Deli is located on […]

I’m in Lexington, Kentucky when I text George Motz (author of Hamburger America) about a restaurant I had just eaten at. He responds that I’m not too far from Dovie’s and that I absolutely must hit it up. Dovie’s is in Tompkinsville, Kentucky and opened its doors in 1940. The restaurant was named after the […]

Whenever I’m going to go on a road trip I make sure to mention it on social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) in the hopes that someone might mention a spot that I don’t even know about. I’d say about 99 times out of 100 I know about the restaurants suggested. Butch’s Famous Burger, Chili […]

I had reached out through Facebook to the Druther’s in Campbellsville, Kentucky when I found out about its existence. I didn’t even know that there were any still around. Druther’s started out as Burger Queen in Louisville, Kentucky. The first location opened in 1963. By 1981 they had changed their name to Druther’s (a play […]

After having just visited the A&W Corporate Headquarters and heard about the new concept stores in Lexington, Kentucky we were pumped to try the food. I need to be straight up with you guys, I’m not a fan of Root Beer. I figured I’d give it a shot since it’s made daily at these A&W locations. The […]
