There are a lot of things you’d expect from a seedy Biscayne Boulevard motel, but great braised oxtail isn’t exactly high on the list. Which is why you’ll be so pleasantly surprised by Blue Collar. The diner-style spot is also known for its massive sandwiches, like the Big Ragout, which combines brisket, veal and pork shoulder, pancetta, sausage, and two cheeses into a hoagie roll. And if you somehow still have room afterward, get the bread pudding.
