Miami New Times' Description

Inside the 20-seat room (with nearly that many chairs outside), metal lunch pails line a freshly painted gray wall, seating is segregated into tightly spaced tables, and three stools form a minicounter. The music is '60s classics, the atmosphere is coffee-shop casual -- a nice little neighborhood spot. Food is American comfort, with most appetizers and salads under $10 and entrées under $20 (except weekend "white collar" specials). Start with pork and beans with a fried egg and sourdough toast, or a gutsy New Orleans-style dish of shrimp and grits with bacon and Worcestershire-based barbecue sauce. Another winning appetizer is tostones topped with vaca frita -- pulled frizzles of fried flank steak with orange mojo. Best of the main courses is often found within a trio of chalkboard specials: a rib item (short ribs, spare ribs, prime rib, etc.); a "parm" (chicken, veal, pork, etc); and a braised meat such as pot roast, brisket, or pork shoulder. A cheeseburger, cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon, a thermos of Panther Coffee, and desserts such as homemade berry cobbler make Blue Collar as American as, well, homemade berry cobbler.

There are many great dishes and the specials are just awesome. The slow cooked... More >>

    Enter Blue Collar, a diner-like spot at the Biscayne Inn where the working man can enjoy dishes like shrimp and grits (served with Trugole cheese, Neuske bacon and New Orleans-style BBQ sauce)
