Best Outdoor Dining Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach 2013 - Taco Beach Shack
Where the sands of Hollywood Beach end, the sand at Taco Beach Shack begins. Though this restaurant isn't quite on the beachfront, it's just a block away, and with the restaurant's sand floors, you'll barely notice you've strayed from the ocean. This place offers large portions (don't hurt yourself on those nachos!) served alongside a nice breeze, frequent live music, a 20-foot screen for watching key sports games, and a sexy lounge area with modern outdoor furniture for schmoozing it up after imbibing a few of those $3 margaritas on Mondays or $4.50 Presidentes. Though this casual joint is ostensibly classified a "Mexican" restaurant/bar and you can't go wrong with the roasted corn or the cheesecake burritos for dessert, the Korean short rib tacos are the truth, Ruth! Yet the most important item on the menu seems to be a good time. Ping-Pong tables were brought in for the Super Bowl, and on Cinco de Mayo, they passed around sombreros, fake mustaches, and... a live donkey. Andele!
