Hate Mondays Tavern BBQ in Miami, Florida

The only word that comes to mind when parking outside Hate Mondays Tavern is intoxicating. The smoker is out front. I’ve parked right next to it a bunch of times.

On my way home, I had the savage feeling of eating my now well-seasoned upholstery, but that’s a story for another day.

As soon as you arrive, ask for any specials for the day. I’ve eaten some great one-offs that seem to be on an erratic specials rotation that only El Bearded Chef (Chef & Owner Karl Hayden) understands.

Here’s the straight-up truth: You MUST order the ribs, smoked wings, and of course, the Mondays Remedy Burger.

The ribs and wings will sell you how great the BBQ is here. I love the brisket, too, if any are left by the time you arrive.

Now, the Mondays Remedy Burger holds a special place in my heart. Hate Mondays Tavern participated in my 2016 Hamburger House Party competition and made a respectable showing.

They returned in 2018 to win the People’s Choice Award with their Mondays Remedy Burger.

I’m not a big fan of gimmicky burgers (and while on the surface, this might be one). I can confirm that it is indeed not one. Their tasty signature beef blend burger is topped with cheese and bacon.

One last thing, it’s on a sweet bun. Hate Mondays Tavern takes a donut, slices it, and inverts it. The inside has a light glaze with some of their house bbq seasonings.

It threw me off on the first bite until my brain could process what I was eating. El Bearded Chef deserves a standing ovation for this creation, or you could visit him and eat one.

P.S.: Hate Mondays Tavern is in a warehouse district, so don’t be Miami-driving and texting, or you’ll miss it.
