Coming fresh off my Char-Hut review, I was approached by my editor about running another poll. This time it’s who has the best burger in Coral Springs. If you’ll remember, a poll was conducted on Coral Springs Talk about who had the best happy hour…..
So I get an email from Ira who contributes to Coral Springs Talk and he recommends that I should go and review Doris Italian Market. Basically, I told him that was piece of cake. Man, I’ve been a big fan of this joint since I moved to Coral Springs and I’ve also written about them on Yelp.
Growing up in Oakland Park, there were your basic fast food joints like BK, Mickey D’s, and Wendy’s. But we all knew that if you wanted if you had a little extra coin in your pocket and you wanted a solid burger, you went to Char-Hut or Jack’s Old Fashion Hamburgers.
Last month Coral Springs Talk took a poll for the best Happy Hour and readers decided that Tavolino Della Nonna was number one. Our Facebook followers even swore by this place, so a deal is a deal and we set a date for us to stop by and find out what everyone was talking about.
First off, the New York Jets suck!
The reason why I started my review that way is because I’m not a fan of New York Style food.
Like most high school kids, I worked at McDonald’s. It was almost a rite of passage working for Micky Ds. The pay wasn’t that great, but getting 50 percent off all food purchases…..
Runyon’s is not just your dad and mom’s old school steak house. Many times I’ll mention hitting Runyon’s and someone will say “Man it’s too expensive” or “Isn’t that where all the old people go to eat?”
That line from The Who song “Don’t Get Fooled Again” ran thru my mind when I walked in to Salsa Fiesta’s newest location in Coral Springs.
Folks, it’s that time of year again that waiters love to hate at Red Lobster: those two months every fall they have their Endless Shrimp promotion. This is your cue to come on over and devour an entire school of shrimp in one sitting.
You know the feeling when you walk into one your favorite American restaurants where everyone treats you like family and it just feels like home? Well, Sakura has that vibe, with an Asian twist.
By: Dan I. Cook Inevitably, it had to happen: my first bad review for a restaurant. This week I visited Benihana in Coral Springs. I am the biggest fan of Benihana, so when my daughter asked to go here for her birthday with friends of ours, I was like, “Hell yes.” Now let me point […]
After all these years, it’s still one of my favorite wing joints. Call me sentimental, nostalgic, or a softy at heart but I just love Wings Plus.
I have written so many reviews about Laspada’s and every time I go, they’re still excellent. On top of that, I’ve been eating here since I was at Northeast High School in the 80’s. The same dude who worked at the original one in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea now manages the one in Coral Springs.
First off, I’m not here to beat up restaurants or businesses so they close and we have another empty building in our community. I’m not like that, because I care.
Sitting at the bar outside in Coral Springs can’t be beat. Even though the view is cars whizzing by on University Drive. I don’t care, I like being outside. Plus, the cozy outdoor couches give this place a relaxed vibe.
Penn Dutch to me is a hardcore market. They’ve been in Margate for ten years and the secret to their low prices is processing over a half of a million pounds of meat they receive each week on their own premises, thereby avoiding the middleman.
By: Dan I. Cook I go all over the place to eat and drink but when I come back in town, I usually say, let’s go to the Bear. I really don’t think the locals know how lucky we are to have this brewpub in our backyards. Case in point: I got back from a […]
Just a peek into the way I review and rate places. I like to compare apples to apples. I wouldn’t compare a Dominos Pizza joint to let’s say Sicilian Oven, Anthony’s Coal Fire to Pasquale’s Pizza.
Really its common sense.
It’s really hard to impress me. I eat out all the time and to be honest I get bored. So I read about this joint opening up in my hood; another new restaurant in Coral Springs. I’ve become numb with restaurants opening and closing out here.
