Ten Best Inexpensive Restaurants in Broward County
Eating out tends to have negative effects on the size of your wallet. And while cooking at home tends to have positive impacts on your cash flow -- and waistline -- it can eat away at your free time.
Flickr Does cooking at home make you feel like this?
If you're broke and too busy, lazy, or culinarily challenged to cook at home, we have a list of the ten best inexpensive restaurants in Broward County.
10. Gran Forno Bakery
The key to putting together a great sandwich is superior ingredients. So it should come as no surprise that one of the best bakeries in Broward County would be responsible for putting together a damned good sandwich. For $8.75, Gran Forno Bakery offers an array of generously sized sandwiches like turkey and Swiss; Italian cold cut with salami, ham, and mozzarella; eggplant; prosciutto; chicken pesto; and caprese. Way better than Subway. The shop is open every day at 7:30 and closes at 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, 3 p.m. on Sundays. Buyer beware: Get there early -- these babies go quickly.
9. Mama's Latin Cafe
Located in the rundown shopping center that houses Winn-Dixie on State Road 84, Mama's Latin Cafe serves some amazing Cuban food at prices that cannot be beat. A Cuban sandwich will set you back $4.95. A huge plate of lechon asado (Cuban-style roast pork with rice, beans, and plantains) goes for a mere $7.95. We doubt you could find those sorts of prices at any Miami Cuban restaurants. The spot is open Monday through Saturday for breakfast and lunch.
