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 […]

They were launching a new Dessert food truck and were inquiring about openings in my events. This was back […]

Depending on your age the pictures may cause confusion or excitement. In 1992 McDonald’s replaced their fried Apple Pies with the baked ones that can be found on menus today. The baked version was and is nowhere near as good as the original. The texture of the original’s crispy exterior along with the more flavorful […]

Ever heard of Caporal Chicken? Well, if you’re not from New York or Cuba it’s unlikely. Caporal Chicken had something like 14 locations in Cuba before Castro came along and put a stop to that.

When I mentioned on Social Media (Facebook, Twitter & Instagram) that I was hitting up Memphis for food, one particular restaurant and their Fried Chicken got mentioned more than the rest, Gus’s. Normally, I would first assume that the place in question is a tourist trap but after investigating some, it appeared that Gus’s World […]

I’ve waited a long time to try Whataburger. I had also heard tons about their Fancy Ketchup and how good it was, so good that it has its own Facebook Fan Page with over 16,000 fans. The ketchup comes in those little sauce tubs usually reserved for dipping sauces. The first thing I hit up […]

While walking around the tourist trap area of Cozumel, I came across this outdoor Burger King counter. Once I took a look at the menu and saw the “Cheesy Whopper”, I knew there was no way I was leaving empty handed. My father was with me and mentioned that he wanted Jalapeño Poppers. Poppers….wait, what […]

For some time I’ve known the secret of the McDonald’s Express located in Kendall. What’s the secret? They serve the old school Apple Pies, the deep fried ones. I hope you know what I’m talking about because if you don’t you should. The deep fried Apple Pie was replaced by it’s baked brother in 1992, […]
