#FatSnacks Friday Finga Licking, Miami Gardens

Hey Cuties,

The family and I have been enjoying a relaxing week of vacation in Miami Beach.  Every time I come to Miami I try to eat at a new spot. Earlier this year I interviewed the Mayor of Miami Gardens and he said I had to check out Finga Licking the next time I was in town.


In July 2015 Finga Licking opened in Miami Gardens, this was the second location for the restaurant chain.  This location is geared towards take-out while the original location is larger and geared towards dining in.

12490 7th Avenue, Miami Gardens, FL

Although the food is good, a lot of the popularity of Finga Licking is its famous owners. DJ. Khaled, who has topped the charts countless times and is the King of Snap Chat where he shares his Keys to Success. Fun Fact: He used to be the DJ for the Terror Squad back in the day. Remember Big Pun and Fat Joe? Poe Boy Entertainment founder Elric “E-Class” Prince. He responsible for Miami artists like Flo Rida and Rick Ross. The owner is a young lady named Tasha.

Famous owners mean famous friend stopping by all the time.

The decor was simple, yet colorful. The tables and some of the walls are wrapped in this writing. It has the establishment’s name on it and menu items.  The menu is a mixture of Caribbean and soul food, and I wanted soul food.

Finga Licking Chicken Wing Dinner

I went with the Finga Licking Chicken Wing Dinner, and it came with two sides. I selected candied yams and macaroni and cheese. I shared this with LittleCuteLips and yeah, she crushed it. Next time she will get her own meal. The price point is cheap, this was $11.99.

Lemon Pepper Chicken Wing Dinner

Babe went with the Lemon Pepper Chicken Wing Dinner, with broccoli and fries for his side. The Manchild got a combination of out two meals. He had the same sides as me but with the lemon pepper wings like his Dad. $11.99

They have a “Mystery Drink” that is popular on the menu. It is a colorful combination of lemonade flavors with fresh fruit. We didn’t try it this time, but people were ordering it like crazy. Although we ordered chicken, they have shrimp, lobster, crab rice, and other items on the menu.

The food was okay, it wasn’t the best I’ve ever had but I would likely eat here again. Everyone ate their food with no hesitation and our bellies were pleased. I would go back and check out some other items on the menu.

  12. Marsha

    I went to Ft. Lauderdale 2 weeks ago to visit family and my niece, who lives there, pointed out a location right down the street from my mom’s house. She hadn’t been there yet and I didn’t have time to try it out. The food looks good. I’d be interested to see how the other food is as well!

  13. Kimberly

    I’m a sucker for some good chicken wings. I’ll definitely have to check this out if I visit Miami anytime soon.

  14. Marielle Altenor

    Seriously! I’m thinking about moving to the states JUST so that I can eat all the delicious food! $11.99 is not too bad for a meal.

    I love chicken wings. It has been a while since I have had some wings and it is probably a good thing that I am not in Miami. I would be asking my husband to take me out to dinner. )

  16. Sabrina

    You certainly can not go wrong with Soul Food Caribbean Fusion! I may have had to get back in line for the “Mystery Drink” I am a lemonade fan. Thank you for sharing your experience.

  17. Kita

    I’m always up for some good wings and things. The name of this restaurant is perfect. LOL

  18. Karen Akpan

    Seriously, looking at all your food pics has me craving fried chicken. I love fried chicken! I am such a foodie and this was perfect to satisfy my cravings especially as I am on a diet now and can’t eat any of it. 🙂

      Karen, they do have some healthier options but I didn’t check them out. Do try the chicken, maybe naked though. Its a bit healthier that way.

  19. Jennifer G

    Well if I am ever in Miami, I already know I have to go here. This is totally my kind of food. Messy and DELICIOUS. All of this made my tummy grumble.

  20. Kim

    I have not been to Miami in a while, but my cousin frequents this place and wanted to go since seeing him post pics on IG. And now you! I have to go. everything looks good.

    Oh Me! Oh My! I love finding a great new wing spot and it seems like Finga Licking is just that! I mean the name alone would have my attention! Add to that how juicy they look – I know if I’m ever in the area I need to make a stop there for sure!

    • MimiCuteLips

      The name gets it plenty of attention. The famous owners help as well. The place was packed so the people are loving it.

    Unfortunatly my whole month has been a fat snack! I’ve never tried candy yams before & since turning vegan carbs have become my vice. I saw Dj Khalid promoting this resturant before. Glad you went home full!

    Ooh, those wings look so delicious. It’s on the list. Thank you for the recommendation.

    I didn’t even know DJ Khaled owned a restaurant. Next time I’m in Miami I’ll have to try to seek this out and pop in!

  33. Eva

    There are so many celebrities that are investing in restaurants! The food looks amazing, especially that mac n cheese hiding in the corner… I see it… it looks like it just might be RIGHT!

    My cousin teases me with his pics of the food from Fingalickin’. I always say the next time I am on Miami I will go.

    Didn’t realize Khaled had a restaurant, never heard of it. Looks good though.
