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 got a 9 to 5 and are off weekends it’s not likely that you’ll be able to hit up Stephen’s Restaurant in the burgeoning Arts District of Hialeah (Leah Arts District). They’re only open Monday through Friday from 11:30AM til 3PM. You should however consider taking an extended lunch or calling out sick […]

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Clarksdale, Mississippi, Visits by Burger Beast

Over the last few years through many trips I’ve become enamored with the “South” and driving through it and enjoying the scenery. In 2014 I visited Amory, Holly Springs and Oxford, Mississippi and was left wanting more. My wife Marcela wasn’t part of that trip last year but I had a feeling she would love […]

I remember it like it was the other day, the owners of Marlie’s Delights walked up to me at the National Hamburger Month edition of Wheelin’ Dealin’ Street Food Festival (May 2012) at Magic City Casino. They were launching a new Dessert food truck and were inquiring about openings in my events. This was back […]

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 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 […]

I’m embarrassed to say that I’ve never really written about Jr’s Gourmet Burgers in Miami Springs. I’ve mentioned them here and there and even put pics up on my Instagram. Hell, they’ve been on my “Approved Restaurants” list for almost 2 years. So here goes… I spent my summers as a kid with my Dad […]

My friend Ed told me about Champions Sports Bar a few weeks ago. He had heard some blurb about it on sports radio. My friend Luis was in town from Los Angeles, so my wife Marcela and I decided to take him with us to check the place out. Champions Sports Bar is located inside […]

Should you be gluttonous in front of someone you barely know? (this my Sex and the City type intro). I met Burger Beast reader Brandon and his girlfriend Laura at Icebox Cafe on South Beach for some late lunch. I got there a little early so I ordered  some water to tide me over (plus […]
