Bird & Bone at the Confidante Miami Beach – South Beach, Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Miami Beach, Miami-Dade County, Reviews 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 […]

Vicki’s Lunch Van – Montgomery, Alabama

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Alabama, BB Approved, Montgomery, Reviews by Burger Beast

I remember reading some blurb about Vicki’s Lunch Van a few years back, about how it was Alabama’s Best Burger. When someone affixes a title like that on a restaurant it sets a level of expectation that sometimes can not be met. I was interested to see if it was legit. Vicki’s was originally a […]

Last Man Standing – Restaurant Chains Left with 1 Location

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in History, News

Once upon these restaurants were parts of larger chains that were either regional or spread across the United States. Unfortunately, like most good things in life….mismanagement, bad decisions, declining sales & a slew of other reasons were the cause for them to dwindle down to just one location, a last man standing if you will.

PRØØF – Miami, Florida by ThankfulMonster

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in BB Approved, Miami-Dade County, Reviews by ThankfulMonster, Wynwood

I often get asked – “Where do you eat when you are not traveling?” Though it’s a pretty simple question, the answer is a little more complicated. I have places that I like to go to on special occasions or when I have a specific craving. But most often I find myself at a couple […]

ITO Mojitos & Cafecitos – Miami Beach (North), Florida

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in BB Approved, Miami Beach, Miami-Dade County, North Beach, Reviews by Burger Beast

ITO is located at the bottom of a hotel in the North part of Miami Beach. It has a parking area separating it from the Beach but this is the part of Miami Beach that I like, not filled with sunburned tourists. I take a seat at one of the outdoor tables and without even […]

BRGR Stop – Coconut Creek, Florida

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in BB Approved, Broward County, Coconut Creek, Reviews by Burger Beast

I’m making the return drive from Orlando when traffic gets backed up to a near stand still. We’re dying to just get back and if it wasn’t bad enough, the rain had been following us the entire way. A thought pops into my head. My boy That was Dynamite had been raving to me about […]

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Best Of or Lists, News

Now that’s we’re one week into the New Year, it’s a perfect time to post the Best Burgers I ate in 2016. My road trips this year took me through most of Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Kentucky, Tennessee & Ohio (in no particular order). I also ate over 200 Burgers throughout the course of the year. […]

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Country Walk, Doral, Miami-Dade County, Reviews by Burger Beast

I first mentioned MOOYAH coming to South Florida on August 19th, 2013, then on December 26th, 2014 I had more details (& a menu to show) but it wasn’t until August 1st, 2015 that I had actual addresses. MOOYAH’s first SFL location at Country Walk opened in December of 2015 (roughly a year ago) and […]

All American Shake Shop – Naples, Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Gulfcoast Florida, Naples, Reviews by Burger Beast

You just can’t drive by an old Dairy Queen building especially when it’s looking so sharp and not stop. It piqued my curiosity and while I expected there to be some good desserts on the menu, it was a nice surprise to find Burgers and Hot Dogs on there too. We order at the window […]

The Loyalist – Chicago, Illinois by ThankfulMonster

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Chicago, News, Reviews by ThankfulMonster

I was in Chicago a couple weeks ago.  As always, the list was long and the time short.  On my list were:  Next, Grace, Oriole, Au Cheval (more on this later), and many others. One of the places that impressed me the most was The Loyalist. A welcome addition to Chicago’s already robust food scene […]
