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 […]

Eating House – Coral Gables, Florida

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

Every time I drive by that corner in Coral Gables off of 8th Street, there’s a line out of the door to Eating House. I really wanted to eat at Eating House but I wanted no part of that line. There was only one way to fix this problem, show up right before they open […]

Gusto Fino – Coral Gables, Florida

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Coral Gables, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast

I remember reading about Gusto Fino when Mango & Lime wrote about them a few years back. I added them to my mental must try list, mostly because of the Sicilian Meatball Sandwich everyone was raving about. Years passed…….then I saw my friend Olee mention Gusto Fino, post a picture or both on Twitter. And […]

Pasion del Cielo – Coral Gables, Florida

After watching a few folks I follow on Twitter continue to visit Pasion del Cielo with great frequency, my interests were piqued. I checked out their website and made a mental note that I need to hit them up soon. I found myself in the company of my friend Gio last night (unfortunately), when the topic […]

Bread + Butter (Pan con Mantequilla) – Coral Gables, Florida

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Coral Gables, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast

I’m always a little wary when someone tinkers with Cuban food classics. It’s probably because most folks who try to don’t understand it in the first place. Over the years I’ve heard Cuban Food characterized as anything from bland to just plain boring. I take offense to comments like that having been raised in a […]

Pao Town in Coral Gables, Florida

What’s in a name? Pao Town, what exactly does that mean? I was sure Pao wasn’t named after the girl who worked with me a few years back or the term (pao pao) my grandmother used to threaten me with when she was trying to prevent from doing something bad when I was a child. […]

Spizzigo – Coral Gables, Florida

I had spied Spizzigo from the corner of my eye one time when I ate at the Local, which is right about across the street. On one of my visits to Local turns out that they didn’t open on time for some reason so I took it as a sign to cross the street and […]

BGR Burger Joint – Coral Gables & Kendall, Florida

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

BGR Burger Joint has made a name for itself as the “Best Burger” in every city that it’s been franchised in. It arrives in South Florida and it gets lost amid all the Burger players here. Why? Whoever scouted the locations for BGR Burger Joint did a bad job. The Coral Gables location was originally […]

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. I had never had Fried […]

The Bar – Coral Gables, Florida

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Coral Gables, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast

A couple of folks had been asking me to check out the Patty Melt at The Bar. I liked the atmosphere at the bar itself  a whole bunch so I took a seat there. After downing my refillable cola I decide I’m gonna take everything to go, mostly because my wife is starving and if I […]
