All Year Cooling Reviews the Best Eats in South Florida

Posted on Community, Fort Lauderdale September 29, 2014

At All Year Cooling, we love checking out local places to grab a bite almost as much as we love an A/C cranking out cool air in the summertime. Here’s a list of our favorite places we’ve recently reviewed:

Breakfast Spots

Most Eccentric Cup o Joe: The Beat Cup Café


What’s better than sipping a cup of Panther Coffee while listening to music and admiring artwork? Not much. This Delray Beach coffee shop is the place to go to unwind with a cup of coffee.

Most Local Diner in Town: Lester’s Diner


Every local has been to Lester’s. It’s an authentic, old school diner that’s about as American as apple pie. In business for more than 40 years, with locations in Fort Lauderdale, Margate, and Sunrise, Lester’s is the best diner in town.

Quirkiest Brunch: Rosies


Rosies is a fun bar and grill that has the most outrageous brunch menu we’ve seen. Miss Truvy’s DD Southern Style Not So French Toast, The Cheeseburget Omlet and S’Mores Pancakes are some of our brunch favorites, to name a few.

Lunch Joints

Best All-American Grub: Gilberts on 17th


Gilberts is known for their juicy burgers, and it’s our favorite place to grab one! This is a family-owned joint with great service that packs in the locals. Get a cheeseburger or rack of ribs with sweet potato fries or onion rings, and you won’t regret it!

Freshest Mexican Joint: Zona Fresca


We can’t get enough of Zona Fresca’s fish tacos! This places has the freshest ingredients and salsa bar in town. If you’re trying to eat healthy, they have plenty of salad and veggie options too.

Most Unique Grilled Cheese: NY Grilled Cheese Company


When you think “grilled cheese” you don’t typically think “gourmet,” but NY Grilled Cheese Company has turned this simple sandwich into an art form. With options like the Manhattan Grilled Mac ‘n Cheese and the Blue Buffalo that comes packed with Blue Jack, American Cheddar, and buffalo chicken, you really can’t go wrong! Don’t forget to get a side of the Creamy Tomato Basil Bisque for dipping.

Dinner Grub

Most Authentic Peruvian Place: La Perla


This place has extremely fresh ceviche and fish along with other Peruvian dishes like lomo saltado and tallarin verde. La Perla was recently renovated with a new ceviche and drink bar, so check it out!

Best Quality Tex-Mex: The Whole Enchilada


We love a good burrito here at All Year Cooling, so we had to include the Whole Enchilada on our list as the best joint for some quality Tex-Mex grub. There are locations in Fort Lauderdale, Oakland Park and Plantation, and each offers delicious taco baskets, burritos, and of course, enchiladas.

Most Mouth-Watering North Carolina BBQ Joint: Dixie Pig Bar-B-Q


Authentic down to the window you order from, this North Carolina BBQ joint makes some of the best ribs and pulled pork sandwiches in South Florida. Check them out when you have a hankering!
