Passion BBQ Food Truck in Miami, Florida

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in BB Approved Food Trucks, Closed, Edgewater, Food Trucks, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast

My introduction to the guys (now only Rusty) behind Passion BBQ was when they were doing the BBQ at the great but short lived Lunch American Style. They’ve since opened up the Passion BBQ Food Truck and now their brick & mortar home at Craft Bar & Q. Craft Bar & Q is in soft […]

Buddha Burger – Hollywood, Florida – CLOSED

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Broward County, Closed, Hollywood

A few years ago I was one of the biggest fanboys of Quickie’s Burgers & Wings of Hollywood. Evan Alichos, the man who created all of the Burgers & Sauces that made them special left Quickie’s over a year ago and after a mini Burger-retirement is back with his NEW spot, Buddha Burger in Hollywood. Everyone […]

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

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

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

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 […]
