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

Whenever I’m going to go on a road trip I make sure to mention it on social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) in the hopes that someone might mention a spot that I don’t even know about. I’d say about 99 times out of 100 I know about the restaurants suggested. Butch’s Famous Burger, Chili […]

The Last Royal Castle Is In Miami #tbt

Posted on 16 CommentsPosted in BB Approved, Gladview, Miami, Miami-Dade County, Visits, Visits by Burger Beast

It’s unbelievable to think that the Royal Castle chain at its peak in the late 1960s had 179 locations throughout Florida, Georgia and Louisiana, 40 of which were in Dade, Broward & Monroe counties. Now, there is one Royal Castle left at 2700 NW 79th Avenue. There’s been a recent update on the lighted menu […]

I’m embarrassed to say that I’ve never really written about Jr’s Gourmet Burgers in Miami Springs. I’ve mentioned them here and there and even put pics up on my Instagram. Hell, they’ve been on my “Approved Restaurants” list for almost 2 years. So here goes… I spent my summers as a kid with my Dad […]

When I think Street Food, Hot Dogs is the first thing that comes to mind. As a kid, when I visited New York City I remember telling my parents that I wanted a Hot Dog from one of the carts I spotted all over the city. I probably even put Ketchup on it…..Ok I did […]

You down with OTC? (Yeah you know me) You down with OTC? (Yeah you know me) You down with OTC? (Yeah you know me) Who’s down with OTC? (Every last homie) I ate at OTC earlier this year and was blown away by it. I decided against writing about it because the pictures I snapped […]

There’s probably nothing worse than waiting through your entire work week to finally see the “big movie” and having to deal with knuckleheads who think they’re at a pool party. There’s a couple of ways to solve this. If you’re going to be checking out some indie fare then I’d suggest visiting O Cinema to get […]

Pao Town in Coral Gables, Florida

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

What’s in a name? Pao Town, what exactly does that mean? I was sure Pao wasn’t named after the girl who worked with me a few years back or the term (pao pao) my grandmother used to threaten me with when she was trying to prevent from doing something bad when I was a child. […]

Who would have thought it would have taken driving out to Minneola (just outside of Orlando) to find a place that makes not only crazy good fresh donuts but the friend of drunk people across the states, sliders. My bud Droolius (make sure you check out his blog) convinced me that this 24 hour donut […]

Lil’ Ole Caboose In Deerfield Beach, Florida – CLOSED

Posted on 5 CommentsPosted in Closed, Deerfield Beach, Palm Beach County, Visits by Burger Beast

It didn’t take much to convince my friend Ed to eat at Lil’ Ole Caboose. He’s from New York and the thought of a good Slider cemented the deal. I’ve driven past here a few times and wanted to stop just because it stands out like a sore thumb amongst the surroundings. It is after […]
