Killer Melts, Grilled Cheeses & Burgers

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

Let me give you a little background on Killer Melts (and Burgers). Back in 2012 I ate from a food truck called Killer Pasta. I liked the food, actually I was quite enamored with it. Then a few years later the chef/owner Kevin Hase decided to change the concept on the truck to sell Grilled […]

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 […]

Crackers Casual Dining in Miami Springs Makes Me Feel Good

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

There’s no doubt about it, Crackers Casual Dining makes me feel good. I’ve had about 10 meals here over the last two years and there’s only one thing I wouldn’t order again, the Brisket. My bud FGH had the same sentiment when she visited Crackers. Now that we got that out of the way, I […]

Barley – Kendall, Florida

Before we get into the thick of things, there is free valet parking in the building where B&S Gastropub is located. There you go, now you can’t complain about the parking situation. Onward…. Chef Jorgie Ramos runs the kitchen and his father Jorge runs the front of house. You may remember them from their first […]

Taperia Raca is the new tapas spot by Giorgio Rapicavoli and Alex Casanova of Eating House fame with Chef de Cuisine Ryan Harrison, formerly of Preservation in the kitchen. They recently opened up in the old Metro Organic Bistro location near Dogma. Once I heard the magic word, “Croqueta” I was already in my car driving […]

Burger Bar in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

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

I was so involved with the Hot Dog Fest(s) we had in July that I never wrote about Burger Bar in Palm Beach Gardens. One of the HDFs took place in Jupiter. During the days we were over there I ate multiple times at Burger Bar and enjoyed every meal. I loved everything about the […]

MEAT Eatery and Taproom – Islamorada, Florida

I almost passed MEAT Eatery & Taproom while driving. Whenever I’m in the Keys I get in this mode with whatever music I’m listening to and this time was no different. PJ Harvey’s Rid of Me was my drive music this time in case you were wondering what mesmerized me. You can’t really tell very […]

Chow Down Grill – Miami Beach, Florida – CLOSED

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Closed, Visits by Burger Beast

I woke up very hungry this morning. Chow Down Grill popped into my head even though I’m well aware it’s been replaced. I checked out Frodnesor’s Food for Thought to reread what he had said about them (click to read) in the hopes it would appease me, it didn’t. Unfortunately by the time I ate […]

Gables Diner In Coral Gables, Florida

Posted on 7 CommentsPosted in Closed, Coral Gables, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast

My sister was the one who suggested I try Gables Diner out because of the Burger. I would eat at this same spot years ago when it was J.J.’s American Diner. Another plus is that it’s across the street from Ben & Jerry’s, gotta love that Cookie Dough Ice Cream. As far as their appetizers go, […]

It had been years, 6 years to be exact since I had eaten at Big Pink. You can find my original write up at the bottom of the pictures. What made me return after all these years? Andrew Kaplan (former owner of CheeseMe Mobile) is now the kitchen manager at Big Pink and it sparked […]
