Ten Best Late-Night Eats in Broward County
The three things most needed after a long night out are grease, carbs, and comfort. This place serves all three in one scrumptious handheld bite. Open until 11 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 3 a.m. Thursday and Sunday, and 4 a.m. on weekend nights, this Wilton Manors shop makes grilled cheese sandwiches that will blow your inner-child's mind. Options like the Soho Sweet Cheeses! ($8.50) with Brie, caramelized onions, crunchy bacon, and berry marmalade on toasted oatmeal wheat bread; Manhattan Grilled Mac 'n Cheese ($8.50), American cheddar cheese and homemade mac 'n' cheese on toasted country loaf; and the Wall Street Grindr Award ($9.95) with American cheddar cheese, French fries, bacon, caramelized onion, garlic butter, and fried egg on country loaf are all served with a dipper of creamy tomato bisque.
Heralded by GQ as serving the best burger in America, this Old Florida dockside eatery has been serving locals burgers and bar food on Hollywood's Intracoastal Waterway since 1974. It's now packed all day long, but it's still the perfect place to get a good dose of grease late in the night (it's open until 1 a.m. on weekdays and 2 a.m. on weekends). With kitschy flotsam and jetsam hanging from the walls, dockside picnic benches, no-B.S. service, and an interesting late-night crowd, this famed Hollyweird eatery is ideal for those looking to get a great bite late at night. Though it's full of tourists pretty much year-round now, it's a relic of what South Florida once was: a great place to get drunk and hang out.
