It’s mid-day and there’s a steady flow of customers placing orders in a cubby hole called the Pincho Factory, located just off of Bird Road in West Miami.
Vanesa Ojeda from Coral Gables brought her son in for lunch after receiving a flyer. “Everything I’ve ordered has been delicioso (delicious),” she says.
Don’t let the location or fast food appearance fool you. There is some serious cooking and blending of flavors going on in this tiny, unassuming sandwich/snack bar, including hot and tasty pinchos (skewers), burgers and hot dogs prepared fresh and made to order. They boast using only 100% fresh beef and zero trans fats.
The Factory has many fans and racked up quite a few titles and accolades, including being “voted #1 Fries in South Florida” by Local 10 News and a shout out by Burger Beast about their hot dogs.
The menu is simple, yet offers twists on old favorites, taking comfort food to a whole other level. The Toston Burger ($7.99 single/$9.49 double) swaps out traditional bread with tostones (fried green plantains) as the buns. And their Chocolate Fries ($3.49) are topped with chocolate syrup and condensed milk.
Their Sweet Potato Tots ($2.49/$3.99) are also a favorite with many of their clients. Add Miami’s Copperpot’s Apple Butter to an order for $0.75. Cajun ($3.49) with grilled onions and a secret pink sauce, and Bacon Cheddar Ranch ($3.99) are other offerings in their fries department.
Pinchos come in beef, chicken, steak, or shrimp. Single skewers start at $3.99 and skewer meals (pita wrap, rice bowl, or salad) start at $6.99 including toppings and sauce.
Burgers (starting at $3.99) are cooked to order. Try a burger with a fried egg on top, or a Paleo style, where they swap out the bun for lettuce.
Hot dogs (starting at $2.99) are also served using some interesting toppings. The Pincho Dog features chopped cucumbers, and the Cartel Dog includes mango sauce and potato sticks.
The $2 Tuesdays special offers different sliders. They’ve included Red Thai Curry with jack cheese, Thai curry sauce, crispy fried onion strings, and the Pretentious Slider with goat cheese and Copperpot’s jalapeno jelly.
Not that hungry? Have a grilled cheese on Martin’s potato bread ($2.49), or a bacon grilled cheese ($3.99) made with american, cheddar, and swiss.
They offer a wide variety of specialty beers (starting at $3.99) to pair with your meal. The brews include English Apple Cider and Belgian Delirium Tremens.
They only offer one dessert, but it is a doozy. For $4.49 you get a banana caramel cheesecake that is wrapped and deep fried, then topped with chocolate and condensed milk.
The Pincho Factory is a great place to try new versions of old favorites. Enjoy… and remember to tell them that you heard about them on GreatFoodList.com.
