A.C.’s Icees in Coconut Grove is the Original

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Coconut Grove, Food Trucks, Miami-Dade County, News, Visits by Burger Beast

I remember the first time someone mentioned A.C’s Icees to me and I admitted I have never hit him up. I didn’t get a “I can’t believe you haven’t had it” face but more like a “I feel sorry for you face”. But after having A.C.’s, it left me with a “where have you been […]

LoKal Burgers and Beer opened up to much fanfare and burger hype from the usual folks. I’ll be honest I was kinda turned off to checking this joint out because of that.

My original intent was not to eat at Taurus. Since the original plan didn’t pan out I drove by Taurus to make sure it was open after what happened last time. It was and we (my wife Marcela and I) were lucky enough to find a parking meter right near by. You can also valet park […]

One of the questions I get asked a lot is where do you buy meat for BBQs? When we’re going to do a BBQ right, we usually go to Fresh Market. We’ve also purchased Burgers, Hot Dogs and Sausages from Whole Foods but prefer Fresh Market. Fresh Market sells Sirloin Burgers (a favorite of mine) […]

I call my cousin Fred up and tell him, “Pick me up, I got a place for us to try”. I knew I definitely wanted to check out Jaguar or Taurus in Coconut Grove. Using my phone’s trusty GPS, I program the address and we’re off walking through Coconut Grove. It seems that no matter […]
