Home made hash was great the corn bread was amazing and the rest was awesome I am had an excellent experience at roberts restaurant. Came here on a suggestion from yelp (it finally wasn't a bad one lol) payed off. The waitress i had was a bright star, quick polite and happy as can be.
Visited for the first time for some late breakfast/brunch. The staff was great and my eggs and home fries were just fine. I would have come back to check the rest of the menu another day but I asked for my check and got sticker shock! Three eggs, scrambled, an order of home fries, a soda and a glass of water ... $12.50 plus tip. Most of the good breakfast joints around here give you the same quality items for $6-8 bucks. I'm not a cheapskate but I refuse to pay double for such a simple meal.
Food was so so. Nothing special. Our server was having a bad day and me ordering three side dishes instead of a meal (which amounted to more than a single entree so not sure what the problem was) somehow annoyed our server. We noticed other tables around us were puzzled by her too... Restaurant was clean and comfortable. Tucked away in a little strip center. Reminded me of a little Midwest diner. It was so so, not sure that we'll be back

Fuggedaboutit! THIS is the quintessential Italian market. Homemade pastas, sauces, desserts and a meat market...you'll be salivating before you even reach the gourmet olive oil section. If you make a meal with their homemade pastas, you'll never go back to store bought again. Absolutely delectable. They also have an Italian restaurant nestled in the middle with a buffet full of delicious Italian dishes. You'll feel like you went to little Italy. I also love the old school feel of the market itself. There's no blinding lights and high-tech cash registers here like Publix. You'll feel like you traveled back to a more calm, sane time. We were joking that the only thing that would make this more Italian is if we found a shinebox or a dead body in the freezer. Joking, joking...I'm a Goodfellas fan. In other words, go! Or I'll send the Good Guys after ya. Hey ohhh....
Not sure where the negative comments are coming from. Yes, the crowd is a little older So what? It"s also more of a seasonal place. Don't let that discourage you from going. The food is great, it's like getting a home cooked meal. Large portions. I recommend the pork chops as you get 2 with a side of pasta. Actually i don't think you can go wrong with any choice. They also have great specials.Vito and Tonda are great. Also if you like oysters when Mike the owner gets them in they are a great choice. They also have a great Groupon deal that they just started.
Talk about good, down-home Italian-American cooking! This low-key restaurant located on US-1 in Dania Beach is a must-visit. I found the restaurant on Groupon (*Groupon Alert*) and I am so glad I decided to buy it. The hubby and I visited Lorenzo's during a weeknight when we decided we didn't feel like cooking. We entered the restaurant around 8pm and noticed it was a bit empty, almost like they were closing. Our waitress, Linda, greeted us at the door and said they had just finished a big private event not long after we entered. She was happy to seat as assured us that the kitchen was still open for business. Awesome. We ordered an appetizer: the Tomato and Mozzarella. This was probably one of the best appetizers I have ever had. Sliced tomato topped with fresh sliced mozzarella and fresh chopped garlic. To make it better, it was sprinkled with pepper, and drizzled in olive oil and balsamic vinegar. So simple, yet so delectable. It was genius. It was a perfect compliment to the red wine. For dinner I had the Baked Lasagna and a meatball, and my husband had the NY Strip Steak and Sautéed Spinach. My goodness, the tomato sauce had an excellent flavor, just what I was craving. A little bit of sweet mixed with a lot of acidic tomato. The lasagna was doused in the sauce, as was the meatball. I couldn't get enough of this lasagna. The portions for both of our dishes were HUGE too! It was enough to stuff me at the table, and stuff me twice again during lunch over the next two days (since I obviously took the rest to go). I was so full that dessert was a big no-go. Bottom line, if you are looking for good Italian-American dining then this restaurant is a must visit. It's been open for quite some time too! The owner told us that the restaurant has been open for about 42 years, and you can't help but hear that east-coast Italian American accent in his voice that lets you know the food is real deal. Sorry Grandma, looks like you got competition on the big Italian Sunday dinner!

As a former New Yorker now in Colorado, I'm always eager for a good slice of New York pizza. This was very good- not the best I've had but if I lived near here, I'd eat it again.
This is a great spot. I wish i lived closer so I could order more of these subs and pizzas. I was told by my wife that her flight couldn't couldn't taxi because of bad weather. I decided to wait for her here and was glad i did . I ordered extra so i could have some later at home.
Good pizza. Thin crust. Fast delivery. Reasonable prices. Salad was good too. Arrived quickly and was piping hot. If life find you staying at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale late in the evening and hungry, this place will do quite nicely.

We went for happy hour on Sunday. The service was excellent. My wife had the calamari and linguini an meat ball. I had the personal pizza. The food was good and reasonable. There was a singer as well. We had a good time.
Paolo's is one of my favorite places to eat & be entertained at the same time. The staff is friendly, the owners, Paolo & Annie, check to make sure everything is ok or answer any questions about the menu, & I've never had a meal here I didnt love. Its wonderful to see people out on the dance floor & everyone having a good time. Try one of Paolo's cooking classes or another event night. They have them often.
This place is the crypt keepers paradise. Ok the good well they pour you huge glass of cheap wine. Well the bad its the quality of the food. They use very poor quality ground beef it was full of hard gristle and lacks a lot of flavor. Also the owner smokes cigs in the kitchen and you can smell it as soon as you walk in this God's waiting room

I have been coming here for quite a few years now. It's always cooked fresh and tasty. The owner I forget his name lol is always so friendly and hard working. Always checks to see how your food was. Good food at a reasonable price. Oh yes it's usually served rather quick.
No one is claiming that this place serves authentic Chinese or even China Townese food. Still, in my book, they get three stars for their efficiency, the freshness of their ingredients, how accommodating they are to special requests and the taste of their food. Their dumplings are not great, neither are any of their appetizers. Their soups are also nothing to write home about; however, their main courses are all cooked to order any way you like them. For example, I like Kung Pao shrimp very hot and with cashews instead of peanuts and with broccoli instead of green peppers and with straw mushrooms and water chestnuts. I know, that's not Kung Pao shrimp; but when I'm here, I don't care. I can order Kung Pao shrimp exactly how I want it and they make it for me with a smile. I admit that I take advantage of their kindness, but I am a good and appreciative customer. Also, the place is very cheap and you can feel that MSG tingle when you take a deep breath of the air inside the shop. This is a guilty pleasure that many will criticize; but if I'm ever confronted by someone about it, I'll deny knowing the place and pretend the conversation isn't even with me. I'll do it with a straight face, too. Sorry, but this is the way it's gotta be.
this is the best food it is so fresh and cheap $5.25 lunch special very filling

Greeted warmly ..fresh muffins and delicious coffee
Um, it's Dunkin donuts, kinda hard to mess up. Just stopped in for a coffee and free sandwich. I was in and out at 8:15 in 2 mins. Really great service imo
This is by far one of the best DD! I come here about 4-6 times per week and they never fail me. They always get my order right and my coolatas come out perfect each and every time. There could be 5 cars in front of me in the drive thru and they maintain a punctual pace. I dont think I have ever had to wait more than 5 minutes!

This is my girlfriend's account, but I wanted to post a review as soon as I got back to my desk: My buddy and I stopped by for our lunch break. We didn't expect a 5-star restaurant, but a typical neighborhood bar with good burgers....and that's exactly what we got. We played a round of darts and enjoy a couple beers. The food came out so quickly and the wait staff was very nice. There is smoking, but it didn't really bother me that bad. We will definitely go back for a cheap, quick bite to eat during our lunch break very soon. Great job guys! Keep the hole-in-the-wall alive!!
It's a dive bar and though I do like dive bars, not this one. It's grungy, dark and when busy, which is rare, little more attraction than past their prime beer guzzling alcoholics. In short, not much fun with the only redeeming factor being cheap drinks.
I have to say, this bar never impressed me much until recently. It used to be a drinking only dive bar that was smokey and dark with a basic beer selection and cash only. Recently they have made many improvements, including a modern jukebox, flatscreen tv's, a food menu, and a much improved beer and liquor selection. It is still a bit smokey and is still cash only but it is inexpensive and the atmosphere is significantly improved. I had the wings and they were amazing! I found out the cook used to work at another bar that had phenomenal wings until they closed. He also makes a special wing sauce on request that is sweet and spicy delicious! Good place to grab a couple suds, eat some wings, and watch a game.

Pat’s Cheese Steaks Hogies and Pizza

Reviews:
Excellent food, always a great time and a great value for the food. Hands down the best philly cheesesteak around these parts of town!
Stay away! Delivery is HORRIBLE. They were 35 minutes late and the manager couldn't understand why the pizza was cold. "He would never send out a cold pizza" says Arnelle. Multiple issues with the delivery from the delivery driver not using GPS to find an apartment 1 mile away, not complete delivery instructions entered into the order by the manager, driver going to the wrong side of the building/apartment # when he gets here and still tried to collect cash on a grubhub order paid via credit card. NO apology from the driver. Speaking with Arnelle, he said he doesn't know how he could refund my order because I had a pizza (even though it was cold). He had to call and get approval. I requested a call from the owner and to my surprise, the owner actually called. Other than being able to get 2 words in, the owner (Craig) wanted to get me off the phone and that was it. He wanted to issue a store credit or have me come in to pick up a credit...how about just refund the credit card (grubhub offered to do that when they called and spoke with your manager). Good pizza is hard to find in this area, I was so hopeful!
Very small place. Eat outside or order to go. While trying to ordering the cook was hollering at the cashier and I about my order before I could even get my words out. Confusing us and making it feel very rushed, to the point she didn't even hear what I was saying and had me repeat everything I was saying twice maybe three times. Kinda rude, really no manners at all. We each ordered the cheese steaks and a small fry, which were good. They spread a garlic butter on the hoggies and grill them so they really don't get soggy. The fries they sprinkle with a season salt, which makes them tasty. Probably will go back as long as the cook shuts up and lets us order.

Pagoda Chinese Restaurant

Reviews:
Tiny hole in the wall place with the best orange chicken I've ever had. Sesame and honey garlic chicken are also top notch. I'm not a big fan of their soup, but the eggrolls are awesome. Skip the pork fried rice though.
I've had take out here before and it wasn't too good but decided to give them one more try. The won ton soup was ok. I had sesame chicken with white rice and was ok. The water probably from tap was disgusting though. Nasty funky aftertaste and I had to ask for more ice because I only got a few cubes to start which melted quickly. The decor is drab and needs a complete renovation along with just cleaning and dusting. If they can't keep the dining area clean imagine what the kitchen looks like? The best thing was the fortune cookie that read, "someone is looking up to you. Don't let them down." I won't be back.
Hot & Sour soup was thick, spicy, & tasty. Kung Pao chicken was not up to my expectation. Place is nothing special. Only stopped by because I was driving around during lunch hours.

Had the sirlioin tip dinner with mashed potatoes and broccoli. The manager cooked today and the food was fantastic. The waitresses were very friendly, prompt and courteous with my order.
No. Hell no. I went here to get some breakfast before my flight that afternoon. My food was cold. My waitress went on her break (so I heard). She left, so did I.
I would say we go here every so often when we are hungry late at night and we don't fee like spending much. Always some of the most friendly staff ever in an ihop. The wait staff some even know us and it's always nice when you go into a place and they recognize you.
