Quickie’s Burgers & Wings, It’s Been A While

Quickie’s Burgers & Wings, It’s Been A While

Let me give a quick background on Quickie’s Burger & Wings. I ate at Quickie’s Burgers & Wings for the first time when the Burger Beast blog was just turning one year old. I was instantly fascinated with the Burgers and Wings and ended up taking their 4 lb. Burger Challenge which landed me on the front of the Tropical Life section in the Miami Herald.

We (My wife Marcela and I) would make the 45…

Velvet Creme Doughnuts

Yes you read right, Velvet Creme Doughnuts will be back in early 2015. Originally opened by Jim Hadler in 1947 on 8th Street, Velvet Creme Doughnuts was iconic. Unfortunately both locations closed (a second UM location opened in 1989) in 2000 due to illness in the family.

Woody's Burgers Food Truck

Last night at the Wheelin’ Dealin’ Street Food Festivalwe had Woody’s Burgers come out to Florida’s longest running Food Truck event for the first time. I was extra excited since I’m on a wood burning & char-grilled Burger kick and Woody’s covers both of those. The 7 ounce patties from Woody’s Burgers are made from a mix of Chuck & Brisket. The Fries are fresh cut and there’s even a choice of 5…
