Son Of A Pizza Pub – Homestead, Florida

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

I normally don’t go so many months in between visits of a restaurant I really like. In this case, it might have had something to do with Son of a Pizza Pub being about 40 minutes away from my home. My first time was just about 9 months ago with Chunktronics in tow, we ordered Garlic Rolls, Loaded […]

Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers – Orlando, Florida

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

It’s easy to choose somewhere to eat when it’s just two people. Once you hit the four or more range there’s always one dissenter who won’t agree to the rest of the group’s choices. I was lucky this time as my wife Marcela and parents agreed to a last minute u-turn to pull into Freddy’s […]

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

If you’ve got a 9 to 5 and are off weekends it’s not likely that you’ll be able to hit up Stephen’s Restaurant in the burgeoning Arts District of Hialeah (Leah Arts District). They’re only open Monday through Friday from 11:30AM til 3PM. You should however consider taking an extended lunch or calling out sick […]

A Little Patty Melt History

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in History, Recipes

I discuss Burgers a bunch and one topic that comes up rather often is whether or not a Patty Melt should be classified as a Burger. I’ve always felt that a Patty Melt was a Burger. I also feel that it’s almost impossible to mess one up. The “official” ingredients are rather simple: Burger Patty […]

Mutt’s on 13th – St. Cloud, Florida

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

I am not even close to being the antique collector that my wife Marcela is. The real benefit of stopping in all these great little towns across Florida is that I’m able to eat from these awesome little Mom & Pop restaurants. St. Cloud is located right outside of Kissimmee (don’t even pretend that you don’t […]

Jefe’s Original Fish Taco & Burgers Food Truck is a little over a month away from its 4th anniversary and is there any better way to celebrate than with the opening of Jefe’s Original Soul Shack? Since the day I laid my eyes on Jefe’s Double Cheezer Miami Style Burger it’s been a Burger love […]

Michelle Bernstein Makes A Patty Melt #localsrule

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in News, Video

I’m of the belief that anyone who tells me that a Patty Melt does not count as a Burger, knows not what they speak of. On the Check Please South Florida website they recently posted this video of Chef Michelle Bernstein making her Patty Melt. I’m not sure who I’m more in love with after […]

Culver’s In Naples, Florida – Eating ButterBurgers & Wisconsin Cheese Curds

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in BB Approved, Gulfcoast Florida, Naples, Visits by Burger Beast

*I’ve been waiting for years to try Culver’s ButterBurgers. When I came across the press release with info about their imminent arrival in Florida back in early May I was ecstatic. All 3 locations (Naples, Port Charlotte & Ft. Myers) are on the West Coast of Florida but that didn’t stop me from making the […]

Waffleworks in Hollywood, Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Visits by Burger Beast

I was meeting up with someone in Hollywood and was looking for a diner type establishment to have a late breakfast/early lunch kinda meal. Waffleworks in Hollywood fit the bill nicely so I got there a little bit early and ordered a coffee while I waited. It was a classic greasy spoon cup of coffee […]

The Rolling Stove’s NEW Patty Melt in all its glory!

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Food Truck News

One of the mistakes most folks do when attending a Food Truck Event is not checking out or asking about the specials the truck might have that night. The Rolling Stove always has something new on their little blackboards but this past week I think they outdid themselves with this beauty of a Patty Melt. […]
