Keese's Simply Delicious

4350 N. Ocean Drive Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, FL 33308 | Beaches | 954-776-4616

Location Description:

Located on Ocean Drive in the chill, walkable beachside community of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Keese's opened its doors in 1953. The nondescript family-owned cafe is not the place to hang out but rather, a spot to grab take-out. There are more than 50 items to choose from. Locals rave about the award-winning fried chicken and the healthier options like the falafels and charred grilled kebabs. Also on the menu: burgers, BBQ ribs, deep-fried chicken livers, wraps, subs and salads, and gyros -- all under ten bucks a pop.
