1/2 Chicken - La Brasa

La Brasa Rotisserie & Grill In Beautiful Westchester, Florida

I grew up eating at the IHOP with my grandfather that was in the same spot where La Brasa Rotiserrie & Grill is now located. The building looks totally different inside but there’s no denying by looking at the structure what it once was. After reminiscing a bit with Chunktronics about it we then get our game faces on. As … Continue reading

La Fiesta Mexicana in Westchester, Florida – CLOSED

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 Mexicana? Well, there were only … Continue reading

Pincho Factory Adds 2 New Burgers & Delivery

Pincho Factory owner Nedal (not Nebal as the Miami Herald named him) has a burger mind and he’s always thinking of new combinations. I don’t always agree with some of the stuff he creates but I do appreciate his never ending desire to invent something new and delicious. October sees not only 2 new burger creations but the introduction of … Continue reading

Pincho Factory – Westchester – Miami, Florida

Pincho Factory? Really? It may be named Pincho Factory but Pinchos are not even under consideration when there’s a Burger on the menu. My wife Marcela, that’s another story, she loves Pinchos (feel free to NOT leave jokes below). The girl at the counter suggested we add Fries to Marcela’s order of a Beef Pita (she agreed).  She made the … Continue reading

You Know What’s Really Good: The Chili Cheese Fries At Arbetter’s Hot Dogs

Arbetter’s is Hot Dog country. It’s been around forever (actually 1959) but the must order item on the menu are not Hot Dogs but the Chili Cheese Fries. The Chili makes this dish. It’s homemade, slightly spicy and with no Beans. Sure it’s got Nacho Cheese but once you try it I’d like to see you disagree with me. Chili … Continue reading

Arbetter's Chili Cheese Dogs

Arbetter’s Hot Dogs In Westchester, Florida

Arbetter’s is a Miami institution, it’s been around around as long as I can remember (since 1959, but at the present location since 1972). It also looks like it’s been around forever (I’m not saying that’s a bad thing), which adds to its charm. Food Network’s Ham On The Street filmed an episode here once. It’s also known locally because … Continue reading
