Best Dive Bar Food in South Florida
8. The Downtowner Saloon
Downtowner Saloon The Downtowner Saloon in Fort Lauderdale has an amazing raw bar and make-your-own bloody mary bar.
This Fort Lauderdale favorite located across the street from a jail is known by locals for its well-priced food, quality drinks, and riverfront views (the side that doesn't face the jail, that is). From ahi tuna wontons and crab cakes to Caribbean jerk shrimp and a complete raw bar, it's certainly not your average pub grub -- although it offers wings and burgers too.
7. The Brass Ring Pub
The Brass Ring Pub Voted "best" burger tons of times.
This North Palm Beach and Royal Palm Beach favorite offers one of the best burgers around -- even if the crowd and atmosphere isn't as pretty. Made with half a pound of grilled beef purchased from a local butcher, the Brass Ring Pub's hand-shaped burgers are cooked to order in sight, and the use of lava rocks adds a smoky flavor. But this isn't a gourmet burger joint, so the choices are somewhat limited. Stick with the classic, or upgrade to include mushrooms, bacon, and/or cheese. Or try our favorite, the spicy burger topped with blue cheese.
