Arbetter’s Debuts All Beef Deep Fried Hot Dog

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in News

Let’s get this out of the way first, I love Arbetter’s. Arbetter’s opened up in 1959 on Flagler then moved 8th Street and 58th Avenue (sharing a space with a Dairy Queen). A second location came later in 1963 at a former Dairy Queen (9000 Bird Road) spot down the street from its current and […]

I’m in Lexington, Kentucky when I text George Motz (author of Hamburger America) about a restaurant I had just eaten at. He responds that I’m not too far from Dovie’s and that I absolutely must hit it up. Dovie’s is in Tompkinsville, Kentucky and opened its doors in 1940. The restaurant was named after the […]

Chris’ Hot Dogs (Montgomery, Alabama) – Chris’ Hot Dogs has been around since 1917. I ordered the Fries & Onion Rings (pretty standard stuff) along with a Hot Dog (Mustard, Onion, Kraut & Chris’ Famous Chili Sauce) and a Cheese Burger (Fresh Beef Patty topped w/Mustard, Catsup, Onion & Chris’ Chili Sauce).

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 […]

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 […]

You just can’t drive by an old Dairy Queen building especially when it’s looking so sharp and not stop. It piqued my curiosity and while I expected there to be some good desserts on the menu, it was a nice surprise to find Burgers and Hot Dogs on there too. We order at the window […]

Coney Island Grill – St. Petersburg, Florida

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

Coney Island Grill has been open since 1926. Once you step inside you’ll see that much hasn’t changed except for the booths which were recently upgraded, I can imagine the old ones must have seen better days. We (John & Chunktronics) were just down the street waiting on my wife as she was dissecting an […]

Whenever I’m on one of my road trips I find that it’s very important to check out the surrounding cities to your destination. There’s always great gems to be found. S’macks Burgers & Shakes is in Sarasota which happened to be on my path toward a weekend I was spending in the Tampa Bay area. […]

When driving around my car seems to know how to track down these little great little spots in town, Dog Et Al was no different. Before I even tell you about the food I need to mention how friendly the folks were, now onto the grub…. There is a large selection of Hot Dogs for you […]

On our first night in Tallahassee we went straight to Voodoo Dog after dropping off our bags at the Air BnB home. Last year I had wanted to stop here but it was way too busy, looks like second time is the charm. My wife Marcela doing the best to be the anti-Burger Beast chose an […]

Hometown Hot Dogs – Millersport, Ohio

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 […]

There are some days that I don’t want to leave my house which becomes an even worse scenario when there’s nothing to eat. Enter Food Delivery. As of late I’ve been using Bite Squad whos service can be spotty but I was starving. Burbowl Juicy Smashed Burgers had caught my eye a few weeks back […]
