If you’re looking for big platters of meat in southwest Dade, JH has them. It's an open-air hut with a large stage and a tiny go-kart race track by the entrance. Given the amount of potholes you’ll have to dodge on the long road to the restaurant, we’ll pass on the race track. It's a unique experience, but you can find better food at a similar place not too far away called Nando Grill. The steaks at JH are pleasantly smoky, but the arepitas are so greasy, you could use one to change the oil on those little go-karts. But you can still have fun here thanks to live llanera music, and plenty of picnic tables long enough to keep your dad from strangling your little sister’s affectionate new boyfriend during her birthday party.
