Smoke BBQ in Delray Beach and Ft. Lauderdale

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Broward County, Delray Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, Palm Beach County, Visits by Burger Beast

A few weeks back I spent the weekend in Boca Raton. Of course, this staycation revolved around food spots. I had Smoke BBQ on my to do list and my friend Jamie confirmed that it was a must do. I knew that there is another location in Ft. Lauderdale but didn’t realize how different the […]

Bru’s Room After A Long Delay, Opens In Westchester, Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast, Westchester

All I had ever heard about Bru’s Room was how great their Wings were. A few years back I tried them at a Food Truck event in Broward where they had a Food Trailer. I never really had the inkling to drive up to the 954 to check out the entire menu however I was […]

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

I decided to stop in at Swensen’s (opened in 1977) a few weeks back since the last time I wrote about them was almost six years ago. I noticed some changes to the food and it turns out that they have  revamped a good majority of the menu. Below you can see some of the new dishes coming to Swensen’s, my […]

Sandy’s Cuban Cafe – Naples, Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Gulfcoast Florida, Naples, Visits by Burger Beast

Every summer my family rents a home in Marco Island for a week. At some point, normally early on I get impatient and go for a drive through Naples. A year ago I drove by Sandy’s Cuban Cafe with plans to hit it up but it was closed for the day by the time I […]

Doreen’s Cup Of Joe – Marco Island, Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Gulfcoast Florida, Marco Island, Visits by Burger Beast

My family’s yearly trip to Marco Island had a silver lining in the food category and it’s called Doreen’s Cup of Joe. A few folks in social media land suggested Doreen’s as a must stop, that was an understatement. Doreen’s Cup of Joe is the sister restaurant to Joey’s Pizza & Pasta House which is located […]

Passion BBQ Food Truck in Miami, Florida

My introduction to the guys (now only Rusty) behind Passion BBQ was when they were doing the BBQ at the great but short lived Lunch American Style. They’ve since opened up the Passion BBQ Food Truck and now their brick & mortar home at Craft Bar & Q. Craft Bar & Q is in soft […]

Burger Bar in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Visits, Visits by Burger Beast

I was so involved with the Hot Dog Fest(s) we had in July that I never wrote about Burger Bar in Palm Beach Gardens. One of the HDFs took place in Jupiter. During the days we were over there I ate multiple times at Burger Bar and enjoyed every meal. I loved everything about the […]

Keg South of Kendall, A Return To An Old Favorite

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in BB Approved, Miami-Dade County, Visits by Burger Beast, West Kendall

If you think back on your life, can you remember where the beginnings of one of your passions I really meant obsessions came from? In 1996 when I worked at the Best Buy in Hialeah, one of the managers and I struck up a friendship. I was the Supervisor of the Media Department and he was […]

La Fiesta Mexicana in Westchester, Florida – CLOSED

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

Folks are always talking about the lack of “Authentic” Mexican restaurants in South Florida but they must be looking in the wrong places. I seem to run into them all over the place. Even the bad authentic places are better than the brightly lit Tex-Mex “cantinas” chains all over Miami. How authentic is La Fiesta […]

Oblivion Taproom in Orlando, Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Visits by Burger Beast

I have a great feeling about Oblivion Taproom as we’re pulling up to it and parking. There’s something telling me this is going to be my kinda place. I had already already checked out the menu online beforehand and while it’s Burger heavy, there were quite a few other items that had my attention also […]

Madre’s in St. Augustine, Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in North Florida, Visits by Burger Beast

Madre’s is located in Downtown St. Augustine. It caught my eye as my wife Marcela and I were walking around checking the shops. It stood out amongst the other food chain type of establishments around. Its food is Mexican by way of California which I’m ok with as long as the ingredients are good. I […]

Mamasita’s Taqueria – Costa Maya, Mexico

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Mexico, Visits by Burger Beast

Mamasita’s Taqueria is located right at the port of Costa Maya. After having paid some dude to take us into the city where we were stopped by some sort of checkpoint, and checking out what local spots there were, I decided it might be safer to eat at the port (for sanitary reasons). In retrospect, […]
