If you're among the many who prowl the streets of Broward at night, maddeningly hungry and just begging for a dining option other than Taco Bell, then the stainless metal lunchbox that is Moonlite Diner is your Northern Star. Why? Well, the doors are open late (till 2 a.m. on weekends), the service is friendly (they don't mind serving the chronically buzzed), and the food is tasty and effective (it soaks up booze like nobody's business). To wit: Among the plethora of stick-to-your-ribs diner options like chicken-fried steak and meat loaf are some of the area's tastiest burgers. Our favorite is the Big Texan, a sinful beast topped with fresh bacon, cheddar cheese, a fried egg, onion rings, and a slathering of BBQ sauce. Tack on one of the nearly three dozen varieties of milkshakes, big enough for two thanks to the traditional shaker tin that holds an extra shake's worth of goodies.
