Burbowl Juicy Smashed Burgers – Coral Gables & Downtown Miami, Florida

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

There are some days that I don’t want to leave my house which becomes an even worse scenario when there’s nothing to eat. Enter Food Delivery. As of late I’ve been using Bite Squad whos service can be spotty but I was starving. Burbowl Juicy Smashed Burgers had caught my eye a few weeks back […]

Spring……..I Mean Spring Chicken Is Here

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

I’m a fan of all of 50 Eggs’ restaurants, in particular Swine Southern which is home to that unbelievable Swine Burger. So it’s a no brainer that I’d check out Spring Chicken for that reason and cause it’s the brethren/sister of Yardbird. My wife Marcela and I agree to share everything, something I’m normally not very fond […]

The Local In Coral Gables, Southern Comfort Food At Its Finest

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

The truth of the matter is that I had lost faith in The Local. After Chef Alberto Cabrera’s (Little Bread) exit, there seemed to be a loss of focus on the food. Enter Chef Phil Bryant. I had met Phil when he was at Swine where he created one of the greatest Burgers to ever […]

Just a little over 2 and a half years ago I wrote about Chef Alberto Cabrera and his just opened Bread + Butter Counter in Coral Gables. This past December I told you about his new sandwich concept in Little Havana called Little Bread which seemed to take the parts that worked best at B+B and […]

I decided to stop in at Swensen’s (opened in 1977) a few weeks back since the last time I wrote about them was almost six years ago. I noticed some changes to the food and it turns out that they have  revamped a good majority of the menu. Below you can see some of the new dishes coming to Swensen’s, my […]

BurgerFi – Coral Gables, Florida

This isn’t my first BurgerFi rodeo, I’ve been to a few of them here and there. The difference is now I’ve got a BurgerFi just a few miles from my home with the opening of their Coral Gables location. I’ve worked my way through the menu over the last year or so and I’m set in […]

Uncle Tom’s Barbecue Returns To Form

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Coral Gables, Miami-Dade County, Visits, Visits by Burger Beast

I always hope that when someone takes over a restaurant with history that they not only want to preserve but build on it for future generations. I was ecstatic when I heard that Uncle Tom’s Barbecue was not only coming back but with owners showing reverence to what came before them. Last time I ate […]

Pincho Factory – Coral Gables, Florida

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

There are two areas of South Florida where you can catch me eating most of the time, Westchester and Coral Gables. Westchester, cause my parents are there and Coral Gables is just a few blocks from my house. I’ve eaten from the Pincho Factory in Westchester more than 100 times in the last 3 and 1/2 […]

Shake Shack – Coral Gables, Florida

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

These Burger Beast lips had not touched a Shake Shack Burger until the South Beach Wine & Food Festival Burger Bash of 2009 and I wasn’t impressed at first. Shake Shack wouldn’t open in South Beach (its first Florida location) for another 16 months. It was the second time I ate Shake Shack during the 2010 Burger […]

Swine Southern Table & Bar In Coral Gables Had Me At Run Pig Run

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

I rarely ever speak of it on the blog but I love folks who put together a great concept with decor & ambiance that matches it. It’s not as easy to do as some people seem to believe. The minute I stepped into Swine Southern Table & Bar I felt as if I was about […]
