Burger Beast Checks Out Miami-Dade County

Here’s a complete listing of every restaurant, full, fast or casual service I’ve written about since I started my blog in September of 2008. I’ve eaten at way more than these but for one reason or another, every restaurant won’t get written about, there’s just not enough time in the day. Following me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google + is a good way to ensure you see everything I’m up to. If that’s too much work then sign up for the Burger Beast newsletter.

Some of the links are not clickable yet and that means they’re coming soon. Read away and if you think there’s someplace I must absolutely try then please leave a comment below and tell me why.
