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 […]

A Look Back At Prost Wurstgrill and Bierhouse In Brickell, Florida

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Brickell, Closed, Miami-Dade County

Prost Wurstgrill and Bierhouse in Brickell seemed to be all over the twitter-sphere one week and by the following week it was gone. Phil Bryant formerly of Swine was the consulting Chef at Prost and had invited Gio from Chat Chow TV and I in for a tasting. I’m pretty sure it was the last meal […]

Uncle Tom’s Barbecue Returns To Form

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Coral Gables, Miami-Dade County, Visits, Visits by Burger Beast

I always hope that when someone takes over a restaurant with history that they not only want to preserve but build on it for future generations. I was ecstatic when I heard that Uncle Tom’s Barbecue was not only coming back but with owners showing reverence to what came before them. Last time I ate […]

I can thank my friend Steve for not only telling me about Mrs Smokeys but actually taking me there. After he had convinced me to attend one of the many Food Truck Invasions he has all over South Florida, we stopped at Mrs Smokeys Real Pit Bar-B-Q on the way back to Miami. He just […]

Cerro Negro, A Nicaraguan Restaurant In Fountainbleau

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

First thing is first, Cerro Negro is a Nicaraguan restaurant not a Fritanga. If you’re not even sure what that means (I didn’t before I started dating my wife 15 years ago) even better. Sweetwater is littered full of Nicaraguan businesses and Fritangas seem to make up a large portion of them. Fritangas are the […]

Hot Diggity Dogs & More in Dania Beach is one of those roadside stands that you read about and wish was in your neighborhood. There’s nothing fancy here just a hot dog joint by some good folks serving up wieners with some Chicago love thrown in. Once inside you’ll realize it’s not very big and […]

Blue Willy’s Traditional Southern BBQ – Oakland Park, Florida

As I got off of my car I could smell the glorious smell of the smoker a good 100 feet from me. Blue Willy’s BBQ is a large trailer, part of which is the smoker brightening up my day. I was with my cousin Chunktronics and after taking a good long look at the menu […]

Fritz And Franz Bierhaus In Coral Gables, Florida

Posted on 5 CommentsPosted in Visits by Burger Beast

A few years ago I celebrated my birthday at Fritz & Franz Bierhaus. It’s an Austrian-Bavarian themed restaurant & bar. I had chosen this location because of the atmosphere not because the food (the movie Beerfest is never too far from my mind). The one thing I remember about that night was that most of […]
