There's nothing nouveau or trendy at this downtown Fort Lauderdale smokehouse/sports bar. Casual and funky (check out Ernie's anti-gold-standard diatribes framed all over the downstairs dining room), Ernie's is a favorite with customers who keep coming back for the oversized burgers, fresh conch chowder, and home-baked Bimini bread. The BBQ is tangy and full of tomatoes and onions; a rack of ribs is more reminiscent of slow-cooked Italian short ribs than Southern soul food, and they're absolutely delicious. Regulars also partake of the full bar, friendly service, and open-air upstairs patio for enjoying balmy Florida nights.
