Ten Best Late-Night Eats in Broward County
Tacos are one of the best fourth-meal options out there -- and no, we don't mean from that one ubiquitous "taco" chain. We like our Mexican food authentic. This Hallandale Mexican joint is sure to satiate any South of the Border craving. After the restaurant closes at 9 on Friday and Saturday nights, it moves its operations out front with an ad hoc taco stand, serving some of the best tacos around. Cooks grill juicy carnitas and carne asada in the South Florida breeze, hitting each fragrant stack of meat with chopped onion, cilantro, and lime before wrapping it in a fresh corn tortilla. It's a scene you won't see anywhere else in the Broward confines; it's always filled with hordes of Spanish speakers noshing on spicy tacos until 4 in the morning.
This Pittsburgh-based chain has multiple locations across Broward; however, it's the original 24-hour beach location that has a special place in our hearts. It serves breakfast and all sorts of great gut-busting grub to jump-start your morning -- or finish you off for the night. You can get massive portions of subs, pizza, burgers, and hot dogs that are hearty enough to satiate the largest steelworker appetite. While it's all worthy of the impending food hangover, the small counter shop is best-known for its "Almost Famous sandwiches," monstrous slices of Italian bread stuffed with meat, cheese, coleslaw, and salty/delicious hand-cut French fries.
