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 few weeks back I spent the weekend in Boca Raton. Of course, this staycation revolved around food spots. I had Smoke BBQ on my to do list and my friend Jamie confirmed that it was a must do. I knew that there is another location in Ft. Lauderdale but didn’t realize how different the […]

Abe’s Bar-B-Q was our first stop when we arrived in Clarksdale. It’s got some great history behind it, how could it not? Abe’s has been around since 1924. After the first World War it was relocated to where it currently sits which also happens to be another historic site, the Crossroads where it’s rumored that […]

Handy Andy Grocery – Oxford, Mississippi

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Mississippi, Oxford, Visits by Burger Beast

Handy Andy Grocery is catty-cornered from the antique shop I had just left my wife Marcela at. While I’m always constantly looking for things to add to my collection, Marcela is much more thorough than I am which generally leaves me with free time to visit the surrounding area. This is a locals spot, everyone knows […]

Owens Burger Shack – Clarksdale, Mississippi

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

We were running low on gas while driving around Clarksdale, Mississippi so as the truck was getting its fill at a station I notice a Burger Joint across the street. We (my wife Marcela & I) had just eaten a real hefty lunch so I need to store this spot in my Burger memory banks. […]

Pig Floyd’s features BBQ with a nice mix of things like the Matahambre (Hunger Killer) Sandwich, Black Beans & Rice and […]

Uncle Tom’s Barbecue Returns To Form

I always hope that when someone takes over a restaurant with history that they not only want to preserve but build on it for future generations. I was ecstatic when I heard that Uncle Tom’s Barbecue was not only coming back but with owners showing reverence to what came before them. Last time I ate […]

My introduction to the guys (now only Rusty) behind Passion BBQ was when they were doing the BBQ at the great but short lived Lunch American Style. They’ve since opened up the Passion BBQ Food Truck and now their brick & mortar home at Craft Bar & Q. Craft Bar & Q is in soft […]

I can thank my friend Steve for not only telling me about Mrs Smokeys but actually taking me there. After he had convinced me to attend one of the many Food Truck Invasions he has all over South Florida, we stopped at Mrs Smokeys Real Pit Bar-B-Q on the way back to Miami. He just […]

Fat Matt’s Rib Shack In Atlanta, Georgia

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Georgia, News, Visits, Visits by Burger Beast

By the time we arrived in Atlanta from Miami it was almost 10:30PM. We were tired, starved and lucky that Fat Matt’s Rib Shack was open until 11:30PM and right around the corner from where we were staying. Fat Matt’s also features live Blues every night but we were just a little late to catch […]

Fuego Lento – Kendall Florida – CLOSED

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Closed, Visits by Burger Beast

Fuego Lento BBQ in Kendall has only been open a little over month in Kendall but seems to be slowly building a fan base. I felt a little overwhelmed once I walked in and that may have been partially or all attributed to the aroma coming from the smoker. It’s a very spacious dining area […]
