Blue Door Smokehouse – Lexington, Kentucky

Posted on 4 CommentsPosted in BB Approved, Burger Beast on the Road, Kentucky, Lexington, Visits by Burger Beast

I’m a bit ferklempt right now. When my wife Marcela, my bud John and I walked into Blue Door Smokehouse we had no idea what we were in for. Blue Door is a central Texas chop-house/chop-shop style BBQ joint that serves everything on trays with butcher paper. They’ve got a good 5 or 6 homemade […]

A&W Burgers Chicken Floats – Lexington, Kentucky

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Kentucky, Lexington, Visits by Burger Beast

After having just visited the A&W Corporate Headquarters and heard about the new concept stores in Lexington, Kentucky we were pumped to try the food. I need to be straight up with you guys, I’m not a fan of Root Beer. I figured I’d give it a shot since it’s made daily at these A&W locations. The […]

Our most recent road trip lasted 12 days where we drove from South Florida through Alabama, Kentucky, Ohio and then Tennessee & Georgia on our way home. When trying to pick out favorite moments from our trip I’d be hard pressed to say that my visit to Boyce General Store was my favorite stop but […]

When I told George Motz (Hamburger Expert & director/writer of Hamburger America) I was in Lexington Kentucky for a few days he told me to rush over to Laha’s Red Castle Hamburgers. When he makes a statement like that it means its go time. Laha’s was only about an hour and a half from where […]

If you’ve read my visit to The Orange Bear Restaurant when it was located in Bonita Springs then you know I’ve got much love for this place. The Menu at their new location at the Casino at Dania Beach is much larger with an expanded array of *Burger and Sandwich options. Plus, there’s Tio Colo […]

Bird & Bone at the Confidante Miami Beach – South Beach, Florida

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

It takes a whole bunch to get me to leave the mainland of Miami and hit up South Beach, it’s a totally different world over there. I’ve been a fan of Chef Richard Hales or as I refer to him, Sir Richard since Sakaya Kitchen rocked my world for the first time almost 7 years ago. His […]

Vicki’s Lunch Van – Montgomery, Alabama

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Alabama, BB Approved, Montgomery, Visits by Burger Beast

I remember reading some blurb about Vicki’s Lunch Van a few years back, about how it was Alabama’s Best Burger. When someone affixes a title like that on a restaurant it sets a level of expectation that sometimes can not be met. I was interested to see if it was legit. Vicki’s was originally a […]

Slice Of New York – St. Pete Beach, Florida

Sometimes in life you’re so busy running around that you don’t take the time to slow down and just enjoy a great meal with friends. You normally don’t ever see me go into detail about who I’m eating with but I felt on this one excursion it would be cool if you got a peek […]

ITO Mojitos & Cafecitos – Miami Beach (North), Florida

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in BB Approved, Miami Beach, Miami-Dade County, North Beach, Visits by Burger Beast

ITO is located at the bottom of a hotel in the North part of Miami Beach. It has a parking area separating it from the Beach but this is the part of Miami Beach that I like, not filled with sunburned tourists. I take a seat at one of the outdoor tables and without even […]

BRGR Stop – Coconut Creek, Florida

I’m making the return drive from Orlando when traffic gets backed up to a near stand still. We’re dying to just get back and if it wasn’t bad enough, the rain had been following us the entire way. A thought pops into my head. My boy That was Dynamite had been raving to me about […]

MOOYAH Burgers – Country Walk & Doral, Florida

I first mentioned MOOYAH coming to South Florida on August 19th, 2013, then on December 26th, 2014 I had more details (& a menu to show) but it wasn’t until August 1st, 2015 that I had actual addresses. MOOYAH’s first SFL location at Country Walk opened in December of 2015 (roughly a year ago) and […]

All American Shake Shop – Naples, Florida

You just can’t drive by an old Dairy Queen building especially when it’s looking so sharp and not stop. It piqued my curiosity and while I expected there to be some good desserts on the menu, it was a nice surprise to find Burgers and Hot Dogs on there too. We order at the window […]
