Good Ol' Greasy Spoons: Five Reliable Diners in (and Around) Fort Lauderdale
5. Joe's Cafe, Fort Lauderdale
arena-sized diner is actually four gigantic rooms put together, making
it one of the largest restaurants around. And the menu's not messing
around either: You can get almost anything your heart desires here.
Veggie lasagna? Umm-hmm. Gyro omelette? Sure. Bagels and lox? Check.
With room for 400 people and enough choices so's they could all be
eating a different vittle, can you lose? No.
3. Egg N You Diner, Wilton Manors
love this place, and how could they not? This place is so
stereotypically old-school, you expect Mel to be kissing someone's grits
at any minute. And, typically, the waitresses have all the sassy charm
of a classic Florence Jean Castleberry, while the burly men in the back
pump out a steady slipstream of hangover-demolishing breakfasts. Snobby
types may quibble with stains on the booths or whatnot, but you can't
beat Egg N You for authenticity.
