There are two areas of South Florida where you can catch me eating most of the time, Westchester and Coral Gables. Westchester, cause my parents are there and Coral Gables is just a few blocks from my house. I’ve eaten from the Pincho Factory in Westchester more than 100 times in the last 3 and 1/2 years. I was crossing my fingers that their second location was much closer to me and the Burger gods…I mean the Pincho gods listened.
Pincho Factory has made a name for itself with its Burgers but it was originally envisioned as a place to get Pinchos or Skewers, hence the name. It started with one Burger on the menu, the Pincho Burger and it grew from there with things like $2 Tuesdays where Pincho Factory would try out some new Burger Creations. The $2 Tuesdays are no longer around and now there’s a monthly specialty Sandwich on the menu.
The Toston Burger is probably their best-known Burger with it’s flattened Plantains replacing the buns. It’s what caught George Motz’s eye when he was looking to feature a new Burger Joint on the Travel Channel program Burger Land.
I eat in about half of the time and the other half, you guessed it, it’s to go. There’s a great selection of not only Craft Beer but also Craft Colas.
There are three dishes that are in constant rotation for me, the Double Pincho Burger w/Cheese & Mustard, the Chipotle Dog (Caramelized Onions, Cheddar Cheese & Chipotle Mayo) and the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich (Gorgonzola Cheese, Bacon, Buffalo Hot Sauce & Caramelized Onions). The Buffalo Chicken Bowl is another great option if you wanna skip out on the Bread. If I do end up ordering a side it’s always the Sweet Potato Tots with a side of Apple Butter. You can’t go wrong with any of those.
Remember to always check out the monthly specials on the board too cause you’ll find things like the 24K Frita and the Croquetessa, which was featured as one of the mini sandwiches on the South Florida Burger Week(end) Burger Brunch too.
There’s also Brunch on Sundays if you’re one of those types.
