***** Burgers & Shakes, 7401 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, Florida 33141, (305) 866-1145.

For our purposes we’re gonna call Burgers & Shakes “an out of sight, out of mind” fast food burger joint!

Real simple story, Jeffiut Eats first told you guys about Burgers & Shakes way-back on 6/18/14, truth be told, hadn’t been back since! Just between you guys and Jeff Eats, 7401 Collins Avenue isn’t even remotely close to Jeff Eats’ Boca Raton abode- thus the “an out of sight, out of mind” handle!

Anyway,

Last night, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats did dinner at Burgers & Shakes and like it did in 2014, the joint’s food, pleasant service, reasonable prices-blew us away! Delicious flat top grilled hamburgers/ French fries/ onion rings/ shakes, order-pickup at the counter, inside and outside seating.

Trust Jeff Eats on this one, if you like hamburgers, French fries, onion rings, shakes- you’re gonna like Burgers & Shakes! For you guys not into hamburgers, French fries, onion rings, shakes- the joint has a real good handful of other “stuff” so there’s no way- that your’e gonna starve!

By the way, Burgers & Shakes is absolutely perfect for the night owl crowd, as it’s open 7 days a week 11am-4am!

You can check menu/info at burgers-and-shakes.com.

***** Burgers & Shakes, 7401 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, Florida 33141, (305) 866-1145.

Hole in the wall fast food hamburger- joint. Very limited indoor/outdoor seating. Order/pickup at counter. Handful of wines, 11 beers on tap/30 or so bottled.

For some reason, today- everybody plays Albert Einstein when it comes to hamburgers. This was too fatty, this was too pink, this was too soft. Enough with the TOOs…trust Jeff Eats on this one, there is way too much analyzing going on. To tell you the truth, I can’t recall the last time I had a burger that was so bad, that Jeff Eats didn’t finish it. For sure, some burgers are better than other burgers-but like 6 degrees of separation they are all kinda related.

Absolutely loved Burgers & Shakes’ flat top grilled cheeseburger, french fries, hot dog, onion rings and chocolate shake.

Not much more to tell you other than the joint is open 11am-4am 7days a week, plays classic rock and its website is www.burgers-and-shakes.com.

Got a real good “takeout only” pizza joint for you guys, Al’s Pizza in Kissimmee.

Long story short, for something like 20 years-Jeff Eats has been hearing about Al’s Pizza…yesterday, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats finally got the chance to check the joint out! Talk about a simple concept, “handful” of menu-items, no indoor or outdoor seating, order/pickup at outdoor window, eat in your car/eat standing outside/take food to “wherever”…

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats loved Al’s Pizza’s pizza- and-the joint’s “no frills/no nothing” vibe!

For you inquisitive types, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Eats ate in our parked 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe- washing the pizza down with 3 cans of Sunkist Orange Soda…cost of cheap date- $15.24!

A recent e-mail received by Jeff Eats…

Hey Jeff!

Three months ago my husband and I retired and moved from Plainview, New York to Hunter’s Run Country Club in Boynton Beach.
A couple of weeks ago, I came across jeffeats.com and love the site. You sure have a load of recommendations and I like the fact that you’re smart enough to know that food reviewing is a totally subjective call.
Being retired we are really enjoy eating out almost every night. With that in mind, what’s your best call on a CASUAL GREEK joint within a reasonable driving distance of Hunter’s Run?
Looking forward to following jeffeats.com for years to come.
Best Regards,
Esther Abrams

Trust Jeff Eats when I tell you that Chris’ gyro wrap is off the chart-it is absolutely delicious. Just so you know, the original Chris’ review (5/21/10) has a different address listed-when Jeff Eats first “tried” Chris’ it was a small hole in the wall, the new location is in the same shopping center and seats a ton of people inside and on an outdoor patio. Without any hesitation, Jeff Eats will tell you, Chris’ Taverna is one of the best Greek restaurants in South Florida.

Chris’ Taverna is a GREEK RESTAURANT…maybe 20 formica tables inside, 20 outside. You can order at/pickup at the counter…or you can be fancy and have a waitress/waiter take care of you. Menu/prices/loads of photos at www.christaverna.com. This is strictly a shorts/tee shirt ensemble kinda-joint.

Now…and I really mean this, outrageously delicious food. I have to rank the Greek salad ($8.95), gyro entree ($11.95-2 sides), souvlaki entree ($11.95-2 sides), grilled baby lamb chops entree ($20.95, 5 chops-2 sides) right up there with the best that I’ve had in a Greek joint.

Really, that simple.

Chris’ Taverna is open Monday-Thursday 11am-9pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-10pm, Sunday 5pm-9pm.

This is what you might call an “out of sight, out of mind” story…

Way back on June 27, 2008 Jeff Eats told you guys about a terrific- American Style joint named Lucille’s American Café in Weston. For our purposes, the operative word in the last sentence is WESTON…nothing for nothing, trust me, Weston is a “big” ride from the Eats’ Boca Raton residence…thus the “out of sight, out of mine” tag.

Anyway, yesterday-after a tough day of shopping with Mrs. Jeff Eats at Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise, we ate dinner at Lucille’s American Café which is about 10 minutes south. Suffice it to say, Lucille’s is the same terrific joint that it was back in 2008…I’m telling you, that if Lucille’s was closer to my home-Jeff Eats would be a real-and I do mean-real steady customer. But what is, is!

You guys who live or work in Lucille’s neighborhood- have a winner on your hands…if you haven’t eaten there, make it your business to catch lunch or dinner…my money says you won’t be disappointed.

You can now read Jeff Eats’ 7/27/2008 writeup, but before you do…

Lucille’s is open Monday-Thursday 11am-9;30pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-10:30pm, Sunday 10am-9pm.

You can check its menu/prices at lucillescafe.com.

Before I start yapping about Lucille’s American Cafe, do yourself a favor and check its website at www.lucillescafe.com for menu/pricing and other details about this 1940’s style diner.

This joint is terrific. It looks like a real 1940’s in-line diner. It has all of the “blue plate specials” that 1940’s diners had plus a “million” other things. It has great food. Large portions. Terrific wait-staff. Very reasonable prices. I absolutely love this joint’s meatloaf, chicken pot pie and country fried steak.

Lucille’s is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner

Unless you have been living under a rock…you know what a Panda Express is…For you rock-dwellers, Panda is a national chain of fast-food Chinese joints. If you check Panda’s website at www.pandaexpress.com you will find that most of its locations are in Mall-Food-Courts…the website will also provide you with menu/prices/and other assorted details.

Now…I am going to let you in on a little secret. One of Jeff Eats’ favorite “Sunday Afternoon South Florida Outings” is to drive 26 miles from my home to Sawgrass Mills and kill 3 hours while Mrs. Jeff Eats and family shop. Before I snuggle into a Books A- Million armchair to read, I religiously “sample” all of the free food-passings in the food-court before I mosey over to Panda’s outlet and order Orange Chicken, White Rice, Egg Roll and a Large Coke…you get a ton of food for under 7 bucks. For some reason, I find that Chinese food drenched in MSG tastes absolutely great when you eat it in a food-court setting.

Now…for the really great news. Panda Express has recently “evolved” from being just a mall-food-court outlet into being a fast-food joint with in-line- locations in strip centers and free standing buildings.

The other day, I tried an in-line Panda Express which recently opened in Boynton Beach…same menu and prices as the Sawgrass Mills’ joint…same MSG…by the way, there is a Barnes & Nobles right across the street from the Boynton location, so if I had wanted to do some after-eating reading I could have done so.

Panda Express has locations all over South Florida…just off the top of my head, I know that in addition to the Boynton and Sawgrass joints there are outlets in Coral Gables, Davie, Homestead, Miami, Miami Gardens, Pembroke Pines, Sunrise…

Like I said before, I really enjoy Panda’s mall-food-court quality food…some people say that I am a reincarnated truck driver ( no insult intended to the truck drivers of the world).

If you are like me and “go” for this kind of food, I guarantee that there is a Panda Express near your home or office.

In a future writeup I will discuss my fanatical obsession with Auntie Anne’s Pretzels…but for now, that’s a story for another day.

In case you needed another reason to get your COVID-19 vaccination, Krispy Kreme is sweetening the deal — it’s giving free doughnuts to anyone with proof of vaccination, all year long.

* In case you needed another reason to get your COVID-19 vaccination, Krispy Kreme is sweetening the deal — it’s giving free doughnuts to anyone with proof of vaccination, all year long.

From cbsnews.com…

In case you needed another reason to get your COVID-19 vaccination, Krispy Kreme is sweetening the deal — it’s giving free doughnuts to anyone with proof of vaccination, all year long.

Starting Monday, any customer with a valid COVID-19 vaccination card will receive a free Original Glazed doughnut at participating locations nationwide. The iconic doughnut shop specifies that any guests who have received at least one of the two shots of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, or one shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine qualify for the promotion.

All you need to show is your vaccination card to redeem your doughnut — a vaccine sticker is not valid.

And it’s not just a one-time offer. Vaccinated individuals can go back every single day and continue getting free doughnuts through all of 2021.

Krispy Kreme is giving away free doughnuts to anyone with a COVID-19 vaccination card through 2021.

In a press release, Krispy Kreme also said it plans to support health care workers and volunteers who are administering vaccines by delivering free doughnuts to vaccination centers across the country in the coming weeks. To continue encouraging company safety, it is also giving employees up to four hours of paid time off to get the vaccine.

“We all want to get COVID-19 behind us as fast as possible and we want to support everyone doing their part to make the country safe by getting vaccinated as soon as the vaccine is available to them,” Chief Marketing Officer Dave Skena said in a statement.
