Swensen’s New Menu Is Absolutely Killer

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 a new Executive Chef. … Continue reading

A Look At Barley & Wich

A few things happened to Jorge & Jorgie Ramos’ B&S Gastropub since I was last here in early September. In October, due to issues tied to construction B&S Gastropub could not continue to operate in its current form so the … Continue reading

Quickie’s Burgers & Wings, It’s Been A While

Let me give a quick background on Quickie’s Burger & Wings. I ate at Quickie’s Burgers & Wings for the first time when the Burger Beast blog was just turning one year old. I was instantly fascinated with the Burgers … Continue reading

Swank Southern Kitchen – Davie, Florida

Swank Southern Kitchen is part of this Southern Food resurgence that has finally found its way to South Florida. I went in solo which kinda limited how many things I was gonna order off of the menu (not really). Just … Continue reading

Burgers & Suds Is Definitely Worth Checking Out

Burgers & Suds opened up rather quietly in mid-February with very little fanfare replacing a burrito spot. Burger Belle ate at Burgers & Suds during National Hamburger Month in May for her “31 Days – 31 Burgers“. She gave it … Continue reading

Brooks’ Gourmet Burgers & Dogs In Naples, Florida

Brooks’ Burgers & Dog is one of the restaurants I frequent when I’m in Naples. There’s a bunch of options for your Burger (this place was formerly Lindburgers) but I go semi-classic with mine, American Cheese & Bacon. Very good Burger with … Continue reading

Keg South of Kendall, A Return To An Old Favorite

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 … Continue reading

Frenchie’s Bistro – West Kendall, Florida

Frenchie’s Bistro in West Kendall opened shop in early August. I had a great lunch there but my camera malfunctioned and I lost all the pictures. I kept telling myself I would be back to eat the days following that … Continue reading

Chow Down Grill – Miami Beach, Florida – CLOSED

I woke up very hungry this morning. Chow Down Grill popped into my head even though I’m well aware it’s been replaced. I checked out Frodnesor’s Food for Thought to reread what he had said about them (click to read) … Continue reading

Hole in the Wall Pub – Palmetto Bay, Florida

Hole in the Wall Pub is difficult to find. It’s hidden in the back right corner of a strip mall. Seating inside include some picnic type tables, bar stools & some full on tables outside. I take a seat at the bar, nearest … Continue reading

MB Brewhouse in Miami Beach, Florida – CLOSED

I was little late to the Chow Down Grill party, well….more than a little late. After being in the Miami Beach food scene for almost 2 years I checked them out right before they became MB Brewhouse. I actually hate … Continue reading

Kings County Pizza – North Miami Beach, Florida

I had put Kings County Pizza on my must try list over a year ago and there it laid dormant til Fatgirl Hedonist brought up Kings County Pizza in conversation a few months ago. I was kinda overwhelmed as to what … Continue reading

Pao Town in Coral Gables, Florida

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 … Continue reading

Knucklehead Burgers in Davie, Florida

I don’t get as many recommendations for burgers as you might think, so when a reader wrote in and mentioned he had a great Burger at a new place in Davie I was off. Knucklehead Burgers are “made of a … Continue reading

Oblivion Taproom in Orlando, Florida

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 … Continue reading

Krispy Krunchy Chicken sets up shop in Pompano Beach, Florida

This wasn’t the exit I was supposed to take and to make matters worse I didn’t realize I was continuing down a road with very few “U-turn” friendly spots. On my way back to the expressway I caught some cartoony … Continue reading

Sparky’s Roadside Barbecue in Downtown Miami, Florida

You just can’t trust the GPS on your phone. I’ve been wanting to buy one for use exclusively in my car (where else would I use it?) and it would have come in handy today. I get lost in Downtown … Continue reading

164 St. Burgers & Beers – North Miami Beach, Florida

164 St. Burgers & Beers is not some over top extravagant looking Burger Joint. It has a much more back to basics approach which is much like their food. The “Twisted” Mozzarella sticks caught my eye. It seems that they’re … Continue reading
