Keg South Of Kendall’s Burger is a Miami Classic

Martin and I sat at the Keg South of Kendall bar and continued our usual music discussions over beers and a Keg Burger. I ended up having two Keg Burgers. I loved them so much.

If you think back on your life, can you remember the beginnings of one of your passions, I mean obsessions? When I worked at Best Buy in Hialeah, one of the managers and I struck up a friendship.

I was the supervisor of the media department, and Martin was the sales manager. We bonded over our mutual love of music, in particular, the Blues.

Martin suggested we get some cold beer and eat the Best Burger in Town, according to him. I lived in Westchester, and he lived in deep Kendall, aka West Kendall. So, he gave me the address, and I drove out to Keg South; I didn’t even know there was a Tamiami Airport.

We’re talking a lifetime ago.

Marcela and I were recently in the area and thought it might be cool to eat at the Keg South of Kendall. It’s been years since I had eaten here, and yes, this is the same Keg South that Martin and I ate at all those years ago.

Keg South also exists in Pinecrest and Homestead. All of them have different owners, so there are some slight differences between them.

I started with an ice-cold beer, and there was also a pretty good selection of craft beers.

Marcela loves the nachos here, and yes, I eat them, but I’m not as fascinated with them. The nachos are tri-colored chips topped with nacho cheese, liquid chili, sour cream, and jalapeños. The jalapeño poppers are pretty standard, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t order them.

Keg South Wing Talk

The Special Grilled wings have a great flavor, much like the famed wings from Sports Grill. I’m just not a fan of the actual type of wings they use, but taste ultimately rules all.

The Keg Burger looked much more beautiful than I remembered. I also liked its patty deformity. There’s nothing better than a burger with character. It arrived cooked to a juicy medium as ordered, with that excellent char flavor from their grill.

The Keg Burger was precisely the same; nothing had changed. I ordered mine with American cheese, although back in the day, cheddar was my guy. The fresh-cut fries tasted exactly as I remembered them.

It was great to return to Keg South of Kendall and enjoy a beer and burger, this time with Marcela.

And what about Martin? Yes, we’re still friends, and at my birthday party this year, he ate two cheeseburgers, actually more like he beasted them. That’s my man!

  1. these prices are way old. this is August in 2023. you need to add 75 percent prices of the old pictures and what this place cost now. and there is no more happy hour.

  2. This has to be hands down the best kept secret around town. What place can u find $1 dollar Amberbok, Juicy burgers, and delicious Zangos. Only complaint with the place is the out dated pool and jukebox machine. Other than that i am a repeat customer who holds this place very dear in my heart. And i too found my hidden love for Derick..

  3. Ah, Keg South. I love the Nachos there! And who could leave the place without having a delicious Xango?

    Not to mention, it where I discovered my love for Derek, according to you.

  4. ok so this is the best burger you’ve ever had, then i have to go back. i haven’t been to keg south in about 10 years. maybe i’ll take a stop there for saturday lunch.
