Champy’s – Chattanooga, Tennessee

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Alabama, BB Approved, Burger Beast on the Road, Chattanooga, Georgia, Tennessee

We were driving through Chattanooga (mostly to visit Moonpie’s HQ) when Champy’s popped up. The rustic shack look of the restaurant had me in the mood before I had even ordered one thing. I was super excited to find out that Hot Tamales were on the menu, something that my wife Marcela and I came […]

Spring……..I Mean Spring Chicken Is Here

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

I’m a fan of all of 50 Eggs’ restaurants, in particular Swine Southern which is home to that unbelievable Swine Burger. So it’s a no brainer that I’d check out Spring Chicken for that reason and cause it’s the brethren/sister of Yardbird. My wife Marcela and I agree to share everything, something I’m normally not very fond […]

There’s no doubt about it, Crackers Casual Dining makes me feel good. I’ve had about 10 meals here over the last two years and there’s only one thing I wouldn’t order again, the Brisket. My bud FGH had the same sentiment when she visited Crackers. Now that we got that out of the way, I […]

When I mentioned on Social Media (Facebook, Twitter & Instagram) that I was hitting up Memphis for food, one particular restaurant and their Fried Chicken got mentioned more than the rest, Gus’s. Normally, I would first assume that the place in question is a tourist trap but after investigating some, it appeared that Gus’s World […]
