Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers – Orlando, Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Central Florida, Orlando, Visits by Burger Beast

It’s easy to choose somewhere to eat when it’s just two people. Once you hit the four or more range there’s always one dissenter who won’t agree to the rest of the group’s choices. I was lucky this time as my wife Marcela and parents agreed to a last minute u-turn to pull into Freddy’s […]

Antonella’s Pizzeria – Winter Park, Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Central Florida, Orlando, Visits by Burger Beast, Winter Park

It’s tricky when I’m out and about with my parents on vacation. They and I don’t see eye to eye on what exactly to order so sometimes it becomes an “if you order that then I’ll order this” kinda deal. I was driving around Winter Park in the hopes that something might catch my eye […]

Fat Maggie’s – Lakeland, Florida – CLOSED

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Central Florida, Closed, Lakeland

I was pretty sure I had written down the address wrong when I was trying to find Fat Maggie’s. It turns out that they’re around the corner from the main street, partially hidden. The moment I found it I felt as if I had located the back to my long missing TV Remote, a feeling of […]

Buchito – Kissimmee, Florida

My wife Marcela and I met up with our friend Marvin to have a late breakfast at a spot he really likes in downtown Kissimmee, Buchito. It wasn’t until we arrived that I really thought about what a great name Buchito is. It’s not used very often but it means “a sip”. So if you want […]

World of Chocolate Museum & Cafe – Orlando, Florida

I almost drove off the road on my way to Q’Kenan when I saw the sign for World of Chocolate Museum & Cafe. Unfortunately, by the time I was done eating my Arepas and headed back there, the tours of the museum were over. The very friendly young lady behind the counter informed me that […]

Sip n’ Dip Donuts – St. Cloud, Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Central Florida, St. Cloud, Visits by Burger Beast

A couple of years I came across Sip n’ Dip Donuts on the internet and mentioned it to my Donut fiend friend Droolius. Since he lives relatively close to it we agreed that neither of us would eat there until a time in which we would both be able to go together. After pulling out of […]

Mutt’s on 13th – St. Cloud, Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Central Florida, St. Cloud, Visits by Burger Beast

I am not even close to being the antique collector that my wife Marcela is. The real benefit of stopping in all these great little towns across Florida is that I’m able to eat from these awesome little Mom & Pop restaurants. St. Cloud is located right outside of Kissimmee (don’t even pretend that you don’t […]

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in BB Approved, Central Florida, Orlando

I met Thomas Ward 3 years ago when he opened up one of the original Food Trucks in the Orlando scene, the Treehouse Truck. He’s back at it again with a new restaurant called Pig Floyd’s Urban Barbakoa. Pig Floyd’s features BBQ with a nice mix of things like the Matahambre (Hunger Killer) Sandwich, Black Beans & Rice and […]

Andy’s Drive-In Restaurant & Igloo – Winter Haven, Florida

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in BB Approved, Central Florida, Visits by Burger Beast, Winter Haven

Whenever I’m in Central Florida I’m always on the lookout for old school restaurants not afraid to be who they are. Andy’s Drive-In Restaurant & Igloo fit the bill so my wife Marcela and I went to check them out. I always like to get there either right before the lunch rush or after it. […]

B&B Junction – Winter Park, Florida – CLOSED

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

When I was in Orlando a few weeks back and sitting in my car with my newest prize possessions from Park Ave Cds I flipped through Orlando Weekly. I came across a write up about B&B Junction that intrigued me. B&B Junction is a farm to table Burger Joint that is committed to quality ingredients. […]

That One Spot Burgers – Ocoee, Florida

I arrived at That One Spot Eatery Burgers just a few minutes before opening time. My friend Droolius, who was meeting me here for an early lunch was running late as usual. I warned him that I wasn’t about to wait for him so I walked in and placed my order when the doors opened. […]

Olde Dixie Fried Chicken – Orlando, Florida – CLOSED

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in Central Florida, Closed, Orlando, Visits by Burger Beast

“Nice hat!” is what I thought once we parked. Nothing is this joint has been updated in at least 30 years. Olde Dixie Fried Chicken is retro, old school, and any other term everyone has heaped on it but it’s also a dive, which is closest to what it really is. It’s a dive with […]
