Native of Broward, Food Warrior, Beer Ninja, Wine Fraud, and Former Marine. I will give you an honest opinion of my experience. I write for free and I dine with my OWN money. I don’t want coupons or gifts. So go screw yourself if you think that will work to make your review better. Whether it’s high-end food or the dollar menu, I will steer you in the proper direction. I love Broward and especially the Coral Springs area. I take pride with what I type and I hope you enjoy my twisted take on food reviews or as I call them, Food Stories. LOL. Stay Hungry!  Contact Dan
