Captain John’s Steamed Cheeseburgers in Homestead – CLOSED

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Closed, Homestead, Visits by Burger Beast

Just as I pulled into the strip mall where Frita Queen was located I noticed two things. First, Frita Queen closed up shop and secondly, what in the world is Captain John’s Steamed Cheeseburgers? Now, I’m familiar with this regional style of Burger because of the George Motz documentary Hamburger America where he profiled Ted’s […]

The Federal – MIMO – CLOSED

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in BB Approved, Biscayne Corridor, Closed, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast

I can’t begin to tell you the countless amount of times I’ve driven by the Federal and told myself, I’ll go there next week. They are also always doing different themed dinners which I never seem to be available for. My wife Marcela and I decided that Thursday night would be the night that we […]

Tasters Taco Emporium – Tavernier, Florida – CLOSED

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Closed, Monroe County, Tavernier

If you’ve been reading Burger Beast for at least the last 8 months or so, you’ve probably caught me gushing over M.E.A.T. Eatery & Taproom and it’s Chef/Owner George Patti. His other restaurant Tasters Grille and Market is right down the street from M.E.A.T., or should I say it was. He’d been planning to relocate […]

Los Chamos Food Truck – CLOSED

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved Food Trucks, Closed, Food Trucks, Visits by Burger Beast

Los Chamos has been stalking the streets of South Florida for almost 2 and 1/2 years now serving up their Venezuelan comfort food favorites like Empanadas, Arepas and Tequeños. I’ve eaten from their truck here and there over the years but it wasn’t until the last couple of weeks that I could say it’s blossomed […]

Swank Southern Kitchen – Davie, Florida – CLOSED

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Broward County, Closed, Davie, Visits by Burger Beast

Swank Southern Kitchen is part of this Southern Food resurgence that has finally found its way to South Florida. I went in solo which kinda limited how many things I was gonna order off of the menu (not really). Just on first impressions, the restaurant itself is beautiful. Let’s hope the food matches the decor. […]

Fuego Lento – Kendall Florida – CLOSED

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Closed, Visits by Burger Beast

Fuego Lento BBQ in Kendall has only been open a little over month in Kendall but seems to be slowly building a fan base. I felt a little overwhelmed once I walked in and that may have been partially or all attributed to the aroma coming from the smoker. It’s a very spacious dining area […]

I’m Eggstatic About This Organic Breakfast Food Truck

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Closed, Food Trucks, Visits by Burger Beast

I’ve had a Breakfast Truck on my Food Truck wishlist for the last couple of years but Santa hasn’t wanted to cooperate with me on that one. I was Egg-cited (I promise not to continue being pun-y but I had to get this one out of my system) to find out about Eggstatic a few […]

Tongue & Cheek In Miami Beach, Florida – CLOSED

Chef Jamie DeRosa’s Burger back when he was at Tudor House blew me away. But it wasn’t only the Burger that did that but also the Fried Chicken, the Cuban Sandwich and the Desserts. There is something very special about what he does with food. I wasn’t sure what to think when he announced that […]

Umami Burger In South Beach – CLOSED

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Closed, Visits by Burger Beast

Way way back at the 2011 Burger Bash I first tried Umami Burger. It was around this time I believe that they had announced their intentions to open a spot in South Beach. Late last year Short Order mentioned that Umami Burger had secured the old 8 oz. Burger spot on Alton. While the official opening isn’t […]

La Frita Queen in Homestead, Florida – CLOSED

Answer: La Frita Queen Question: What is the farthest location south in Florida you can find a Frita? I’ve finally got an answer for that question. La Frita Queen opened up in Homestead this weekend. Originally, La Frita Queen was a Food Truck (really a trailer). She may have done one or two gigs before […]

Butcher & the Burger In The Town Center Of Boca Raton, Florida Food Court – CLOSED

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Boca Raton, Closed, Palm Beach County, Visits by Burger Beast

There is no doubt in my mind that you will not find a better Burger in a mall food court than Butcher & the Burger at the Town Center of Boca Raton. It’s also probably the most expensive meal you will ever have in a mall food court too. My Aged Prime Beef Blend Burger […]

A&G Burger Joint in Sweetwater, Florida – CLOSED

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Closed, Miami-Dade County, Sweetwater, Visits by Burger Beast

Sweetwater isn’t exactly known for its burgeoning food scene but it is the Fritanga capital of South Florida. Right on its border to Westchester near FIU you can find A&G Burger Joint with its giant Burger menu and great Craft Beer selection. A&G Burger Joint opened up in late December of 2012 and I’ve probably […]
