Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Hodgenville, Kentucky, Visits by Burger Beast

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 […]

Abe’s Bar-B-Q was our first stop when we arrived in Clarksdale. It’s got some great history behind it, how could it not? Abe’s has been around since 1924. After the first World War it was relocated to where it currently sits which also happens to be another historic site, the Crossroads where it’s rumored that […]

I’m not one to give up easily when searching online for somewhere different to eat and ¬†Eats & Treats wasn’t exactly on the first page of results. It may take you some digging to find a restaurant worth being found. You’ll be glad you put in some elbow grease when you hit gold. My wife […]

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in BB Approved, Homestead, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast

I was in Homestead a few days ago when I found out about the existence of Larry, Curly, Burgers and Moe. Being a lifelong Three Stooges and Burger fan, it was no brainer that I’d have to stop in. The only problem? They were closed by the time I was ready to hit them up. […]

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 […]

Uncle Tom’s Barbecue Returns To Form

I always hope that when someone takes over a restaurant with history that they not only want to preserve but build on it for future generations. I was ecstatic when I heard that Uncle Tom’s Barbecue was not only coming back but with owners showing reverence to what came before them. Last time I ate […]

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 can thank my friend Steve for not only telling me about Mrs Smokeys but actually taking me there. After he had convinced me to attend one of the many Food Truck Invasions he has all over South Florida, we stopped at Mrs Smokeys Real Pit Bar-B-Q on the way back to Miami. He just […]

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 […]

Preservation In Sunny Isles, Florida

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in Visits, Visits by Burger Beast

Every summer when I was kid my family would spend a week at the Golden Strand on Sunny Isles. The highlight of the vacation for me was driving past the Krispy Kreme Doughnut factory and trying to convince my parents to stop. Were we still to go there I’d probably say that my highlight now […]

Tobacco Road’s Got A New Menu

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in News

Tobacco Road, Miami’s oldest bar has updated their menu. I personally didn’t think there was anything wrong it but some new worthy additions include a Swamp Chili made with Gator Tail, something called El Jefe (Smoked Pork, Guacamole, Queso Fresco & Chipotle Sauce) and everyone’s lunchtime favorite, Tater Tots. Oh yes, there’s one last item […]
