Why am I writing about Elote Lovers restaurant in Homestead and the Miami Roasted Corn food truck in one post? The owners are one and the same. Julie, Peter, Ashley, Anais, and Peter Jr. Larzabal can be found separately or together as a unit in different combinations at these family-run businesses. If you’re keeping tabs at home, they also run the ChurroMania food trucks around Miami.
I’ve been lucky to have them participate in hundreds of my food truck events in South Florida. This great, humble, and hard-working family is always doing their best to serve you with tasty comfort food. I’m a giant champion of them, their food, and the proof that hard work does pay off.
Elote Lovers in Homestead
The Elote Lovers (28838 S Dixie Hwy, Homestead) restaurant replaced another burger joint that I loved, Larry, Curly, Burgers & Moe, and Captain John’s Steamed Cheeseburgers before that. I was sad to see it go but happy at the same time to see Miami Roasted Corn expand. The space isn’t large, and there is no seating inside; it’s a to-go kinda spot. My pro-tip suggestion is you call-in your order (786-349-5626), so you only need to walk in and pick up your grub. First-timers might be inclined to come in and place their order, so you do you, whatever makes you feel more comfortable.
The menu from the Miami Roasted Corn food truck has been expanded at Elote Lovers to include bowls, mango biche, mac ‘n cheese, and smash cheeseburgers. I’m hoping it was my influence that caused the addition of the latter. If you’re calling in your order and walking it, don’t forget to look at the specials board to see if anything new catches your eye.

Miami Roasted Corn Food Truck
The Miami Roasted Corn Food Truck debuted in May of 2011. They were initially known as the Miami Angels Roasted Corn, who were selling their highly addictive roasted corn at events trying to raise funds for a junior baseball league team.
By May 2013, they had changed their name to Miami Roasted Corn and added freshly squeezed lemonade to their repertoire, which was a game-changer. Since then, they’ve added variations of their original menu like strawberry lemonade and a whole variety of elotes in a cup (Mexican street-style corn).
One last fact, Miami Roasted Corn is a staple at Burger Beast events like Food Trucks at ArtsPark and Luv Me Tenders. I must have some of their lemonade along with the classic corn on the cob (maybe with a little bit of grated cheese). You should too!
