Killer Melts, Grilled Cheeses & Burgers

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

Let me give you a little background on Killer Melts (and Burgers). Back in 2012 I ate from a food truck called Killer Pasta. I liked the food, actually I was quite enamored with it. Then a few years later the chef/owner Kevin Hase decided to change the concept on the truck to sell Grilled […]

Butch’s Famous Burgers, Chili & Dogs – Ft. Myers, Florida

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

Whenever I’m going to go on a road trip I make sure to mention it on social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) in the hopes that someone might mention a spot that I don’t even know about. I’d say about 99 times out of 100 I know about the restaurants suggested. Butch’s Famous Burger, Chili […]

BRGR Stop – Coconut Creek, Florida

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in BB Approved, Broward County, Coconut Creek, Visits 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 […]

MOOYAH Burgers – Country Walk & Doral, Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Country Walk, Doral, Miami-Dade County, Visits 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 […]

The Loyalist – Chicago, Illinois by ThankfulMonster

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Chicago, News, Visits 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 […]

Burger Culture – Tampa, Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, BB Approved Food Trucks, Gulfcoast Florida, Tampa

It’s been a little over 4 years since I last checked in to Burger Culture. Last time I saw them, they were part of the Mayor’s Food Truck Fiesta in Tampa, Florida. Now, they’ve got a permanent spot for Lunch & Dinner at a Harley Davidson complete with Tables, Chairs and most importantly a roof […]

Orange Bear Restaurant – Bonita Springs, Florida – MOVED

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Bonita Springs, Gulfcoast Florida, Visits by Burger Beast

I’ve had my beady little eyes on the Orange Bear Restaurant for over a year and now that my car’s issues are out of the way it was time to check out what was happening on the west coast of Florida. Originally the OB were located inside of a Flea Market which even interested me more […]

Goody Goody Burgers – Tampa, Florida

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Gulfcoast Florida, Tampa, Visits by Burger Beast

If you live in South Florida like I do then the name Goody Goody probably doesn’t mean anything to you. Now, if you mention Goody Goody Burgers & Butterscotch Pie to folks in Tampa you’ll get a totally different reaction. For comparison, it’s similar to what happens to old school Miamians when talking about Royal Castle […]

Hometown Hot Dogs – Millersport, Ohio

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Millersport, Ohio, Visits by Burger Beast

When we left Miami for a road trip through Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Alabama & Florida I did not have Hometown HotDogs on our list of stops. I had a horrible cough the entire trip and our last day in Columbus, Ohio I decided I’d stay in and the hope was to recoup a little bit for […]

WingMania’s Wings Are Great But You Gotta Get The Burger

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Homestead, Miami-Dade County, Quail Roost, Visits by Burger Beast

WingMania is a good 30 minutes (the Quail Roost location is, their Homestead spot is farther) from my HQ so I wanted to make sure I didn’t try to make the drive in rush hour traffic. I waited til about 7PM when about 80% of it was gone and was on my way with Chunktronics. […]

A-Mari-Mix Fresh Mex Fusion – Westchester, Florida

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in BB Approved, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast, Westchester

Normally I’m the one driving which makes it difficult to scope out new spots to stop & eat at. Luckily, Chunktronics was driving which meant I could sit back and enjoy the ride around Westchester. Then all of sudden I spotted out of the corner of my eye a restaurant I had never seen or […]

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 […]
