A place devoted to worshiping bacon is my kind of place!- Miami Smokers (Little Havana, Restaurants)

A long long time ago I had read an article about Miami Smokers and it sounded pretty legit.

Look Mom I ate a burger with my hands!- Burger and Beer Joint (Gluten-Free buns, South Beach/Brickell)

Note: the South Beach location is no longer a Burger and Beer franchise and has changed names. Unsure if they still have gluten-free buns.  After a somewhat early night out in South Beach (ie. ending around 11 PM), my friends and I were pretty hungry and a few people wanted to eat at Burger and […]
