1. Corn Dog at Arbetter Hot Dogs

Copy Link
8747 SW 40th St
Miami, FL 33165
(305) 207-0555
America’s quintessential meat on a stick: the corn dog. For the real thing, head out to Westwood Lakes to Arbetter’s, Miami’s No. 1 hot dog stand.

2. Sumi Yakitori

Copy Link
21 Southwest 11th Street
Miami, FL 33130
Not to be confused with Momi (Sumi’s seemingly identical next-door neighbor), this hidden sushi joint has earned itself a reputation as one of Brickell’s best-kept secrets. It may be a spall space, but Sumi packs a big punch—especially when it comes to meat on a stick. Yakitori is the Japanese term for skewers.

3. Soy-Ginger Glazed Beef Steak Kabobs at Grill House

976 W 41st St, Miami Beach, FL 33140
Miami Beach, FL 33140
Whether you keep kosher or not, Grill House is a must-try. Serving up traditional Middle Eastern cuisine, this certified glatt kosher has some of the best kabobs in the city. Our top pick: the Beef Steak Kabobs appetizer, which is marinated with a tasty soy ginger glaze and grilled to perfection.

4. Buta-bara Yuzu Miso at Zuma

270 Biscayne Boulevard Way
Miami, FL 33131
(305) 577-0277

When it comes to sushi, Zuma is hands down one of Miami’s best. But don’t discount the robata bar chefs, who are hard at work preparing some fantastically delicious skewers. A guest favorite is the Buta-bara Yuzu Miso (try saying that five times fast), juicy Kurobuta pork belly served with a sweet yuzu mustard miso to dip in.

5. Robata Skewers at Katsuya

1701 Collins Ave
Miami Beach, FL 33139
(305) 674-1701
Visit Website
Master sushi chef Katsuya Uechi’s contemporary twist on traditional Japanese cuisine has led the Philippe Starck-designed restaurant to become one of SoBe’s top-rated eateries and a winner of OpenTable’s 2014 Diners’ Choice Awards. Although Katsuya is known for its sushi, the robata bar skewers are equally as tempting. Try the bacon- wrapped asparagus...you’ll understand what we mean.

6. Braised Pork Belly Skewers at The Butcher Shop

Copy Link
165 NW 23rd St
Miami, FL 33127
(305) 846-9120

Wynwood’s trendy beer garden has been open less than a year, but it has quickly become one of the neighborhood’s most popular local hangouts. While slabs of meat can be purchased raw to be cooked at home, there’s also a complete menu on offer. Try the juicy pork belly skewers appetizer, which is served with a spicy sauce over a bed of greens.

7. Mini Corn Dogs at Burger & Beer Joint

Copy Link
900 S Miami Ave, #130
Miami, FL 33130
(305) 523-2244
Visit Website
Who knew that that B&B had corn dogs? An order consists of a bucket of pocket-sized all-beef Hebrew National franks dipped in cornmeal batter and served with a side of mustard. Be prepared to share; you’ll need to leave room for that massive burger that’s on its way.

8. Cuban Sandwich at De Rodriguez

Copy Link
101 Ocean Dr. (in The Hilton Bentley)
Miami Beach, FL 33139
Brought to you by celebrity chef and James Beard Award-winner Douglas Rodriguez, De Rodriguez Cuba is heralded for being one of the best Latin restaurants in South Beach. Perhaps the most innovative item on the menu: a Cuban Sandwich...on a stick! It’s all the same ingredients as your typical Cuban—ham, roast pork, together into gooey cubes wrapped in fried Swiss cheese.

9. Wagyu Beef Skewers at La Mar

Copy Link
500 Brickell Key Drive
Miami, FL 33131
(305) 913-8288
Visit Website
The brand-new restaurant inside the Mandarin Oriental serves up a yummy selection of authentic Peruvian dishes with a modern twist. They have a number of items listed on the menu as “From the Anticucho Grill” (Anticucho is a Peruvian term for skewered meat). We like the Wagyu Beef, which is prepared with chimichurri, tacu-tacu, quail egg, and rocoto sauce.

10. Pinchos at Pincho Factory

Copy Link
30-32 Giralda Avenue
Coral Gables, FL 33134
(305) 446-5666
Most people know this gastropub for its burgers and hot dogs, but Pincho Factory is also known for—no surprise here—its pinchos (Spanish for skewers). Be sure to look out for their food truck, which makes its rounds daily throughout the Miami area.
