The Fish House…..that’s right a seafood place. How did I end up here? It’s a great question so let me explain. Months ago someone mentioned to me on Instagram that there was a seafood spot I needed to check out located in the gray area between Westchester and Kendall that was serving up a Pat […]

It’s unbelievable to think that the Royal Castle chain at its peak in the late 1960s had 179 locations throughout Florida, Georgia and Louisiana, 40 of which were in Dade, Broward & Monroe counties.

Another Colombian Fast Food Joint? I had sworn off all “Colombian Places” after the debacle that is Que Perros, plus I pissed some dude off enough with my comments that he left a near unreadable retort worth checking out alone. So after some convincing from a few people , I decided to give it a go. […]
