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 […]

I’m not sure how long I’ve been telling myself that I’m gonna hit up Doggi’s Arepa Bar but I finally dropped in to their location on Biscayne Blvd. I made sure to seat myself by the window to get some natural light action aka how to have the best looking photos. I was familiar with […]

Whenever I’m going to go on a road trip I make sure to mention it on social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) in the hopes that someone might mention a spot that I don’t even know about. I’d say about 99 times out of 100 I know about the restaurants suggested. Butch’s Famous Burger, Chili […]

I had reached out through Facebook to the Druther’s in Campbellsville, Kentucky when I found out about its existence. I didn’t even know that there were any still around. Druther’s started out as Burger Queen in Louisville, Kentucky. The first location opened in 1963. By 1981 they had changed their name to Druther’s (a play […]

After having just visited the A&W Corporate Headquarters and heard about the new concept stores in Lexington, Kentucky we were pumped to try the food. I need to be straight up with you guys, I’m not a fan of Root Beer. I figured I’d give it a shot since it’s made daily at these A&W locations. The […]

Our most recent road trip lasted 12 days where we drove from South Florida through Alabama, Kentucky, Ohio and then Tennessee & Georgia on our way home.

When I told George Motz (Hamburger Expert & director/writer of Hamburger America) I was in Lexington Kentucky for a few days he told me to rush over to Laha’s Red Castle Hamburgers. When he makes a statement like that it means its go time. Laha’s was only about an hour and a half from where […]
