Located in sunny Miami, Florida, LoKal Burgers and Beer in Coconut Grove is a hands down winner with dog lovers and sun worshipers.
The burger joint opened in 2011 with a massive launch drawing in customers and dogs from all over the Miami area.
Owned by a foodie couple, one cooks and the other studied nutrition, LoKal Burgers and Beer pride themselves on their produce.
All ingredients are locally sourced and supplied from farms, dairies and brewers to highlight the wealth of produce that comes straight from the sunshine state.
The owners are there every step of the process, from suppliers to table and value great food. Each burger patty is is ground down by hand and pressed before being freshly cooked and served.
The restaurant also prides itself on being green, opening as the first restaurant in the Miami-Dade county area to use solar and wind power to operate on 100% clean and reneable energy.
There is an emphasis on recycling and restoring items, used through the decor such as this indoor sign made from recycled corks.
The best part of this locally sourced, fresh, and green restaurant is it is dog friendly!
In fact the house dog YeYo often makes an appearance at the front door to greet
customers and their furry friends.
There is even a seperate menu which your dog can order from with dishes such as Maramaduke’s Meatloaf and YeYo’s Chicken and Rice, while Bowser Beer is on offer for a refreshment for $5.
Doggy biscuits and water are on the house if your pet has already come fed and watered.
The menu has a variety of different dishes, and even goes as far to tell you exactly where your dinner came from and what livestock have been fed.
If you just stop by for a drink, then you can choose from an electric range of locally sourced beers and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere in this wonderful hang-out.
