Delicious Homestyle Fare Is a Favorite in Fort Lauderdale



Homestyle dining is often the only thing that will hit the spot. Visitors and locals alike know that Fort Lauderdale is known for its amazing seafood, steak, organic and fine dining options, but also for a number of homestyle cooking eateries that are a delight. We at 10best have the pleasure of finding these great restaurants and spreading the news. And where to start? Why not on the very popular Las Olas Boulevard and to a landmark eatery that locals have sworn by for years, The Floridian. This is where businessmen sit down with visiting beach-goers to enjoy an amazing menu. If it’s a diner you're looking for, Lester's Diner just south of Downtown has been a hot spot anytime of the day with an amazing breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. Or head north on Andrews Avenue to the tried and true Andrews Diner at the corner of Oakland Park Boulevard. Be prepared to take a seat outside and wait, but know it’s well worth it. But remember that homestyle cooking is not just meat and potatoes. Buca di Beppo is an amazing Italian restaurant that serves up its famous fare family style, and the families return again and again. Fort Lauderdale is well-known as a world-class destination, and these restaurants are ready with their great menus and favorite dishes.
