The Local In Coral Gables, Southern Comfort Food At Its Finest

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Coral Gables, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast

The truth of the matter is that I had lost faith in The Local. After Chef Alberto Cabrera’s (Little Bread) exit, there seemed to be a loss of focus on the food. Enter Chef Phil Bryant. I had met Phil when he was at Swine where he created one of the greatest Burgers to ever […]

You Must Stop In At BurgerQue In Ft. Myers

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Ft. Myers, Gulfcoast Florida, Visits by Burger Beast

I fucking love BurgerQue! There I said it. I got it out of my system. Yesterday was my yearly pilgrimage to BurgerQue, that’s 4 times if you’re keeping count at home. Since my last visit they added a Beer Garden with a great outdoor seating area. You can still walk up to the window or drive-thru […]

The Local Craft Food & Drink – Coral Gables, Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Visits by Burger Beast

The Original Post (November 2013): The first thing I ever had from the Local Craft Food & Drink was their Burger during the Burgerliscious competition. At that time Alberto Cabrera was the Chef before he opened up his own spot a few blocks away. It seemed as if for a little while after he left […]

Swank Southern Kitchen – Davie, Florida – CLOSED

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Broward County, Closed, Davie, Visits by Burger Beast

Swank Southern Kitchen is part of this Southern Food resurgence that has finally found its way to South Florida. I went in solo which kinda limited how many things I was gonna order off of the menu (not really). Just on first impressions, the restaurant itself is beautiful. Let’s hope the food matches the decor. […]

HuaHua’s Taqueria Hits The Spot

HuaHua’s Taqueria opened up in a little spot not too far from Shake Shack (how I gauge distance in SoBe) with about 4 counter seats and a few tables (with seats duh) outside. I got there as the people in Hialeah say, “super” early. I walked in a couple of minutes before they even opened […]

Fuego Lento – Kendall Florida – CLOSED

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Closed, Visits by Burger Beast

Fuego Lento BBQ in Kendall has only been open a little over month in Kendall but seems to be slowly building a fan base. I felt a little overwhelmed once I walked in and that may have been partially or all attributed to the aroma coming from the smoker. It’s a very spacious dining area […]

Swine Southern Table & Bar In Coral Gables Had Me At Run Pig Run

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Coral Gables, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast

I rarely ever speak of it on the blog but I love folks who put together a great concept with decor & ambiance that matches it. It’s not as easy to do as some people seem to believe. The minute I stepped into Swine Southern Table & Bar I felt as if I was about […]

Bulldog Burger in North Miami, Florida

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

I can’t believe there’s a 3 year difference between the first time I stepped foot into Bulldog Barbecue and Bulldog Burger. I was aware that Bulldog Burger was right next door but not that they’re essentially the same restaurant, there is only one menu. Enough of that talk, let’s get on to the food. We have to […]

Hogzilla’s Inspired Barbecue in South Beach

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Visits by Burger Beast

I was probably about 20 to 25 feet from the front door of Hogzilla before I was enveloped in a beautiful web of smoke smothering the air. As I walked in, I noticed how different the place looked compared to the previous bbq resto that was here. There are just these little odd artifacts on […]

Sparky’s Roadside Barbecue in Downtown Miami, Florida

You just can’t trust the GPS on your phone. I’ve been wanting to buy one for use exclusively in my car (where else would I use it?) and it would have come in handy today. I get lost in Downtown easily but luckily Sparky’s Roadside Barbecue was easy to find after my disastrous attempt to […]
