Our first visit to Lester's was yesterday at lunch and we are back for dinner tonight. Over two days we tried the tuna salad, gyro, country fried steak, BBQ bacon cheeseburger with fries, Greek Chicken, French onion soup and chicken and rice soup. Everything is wonderful and I think the Greek Chicken wins as best entree. Everything is made in... More

I wish we had known about this place when we first got to Fort Lauderdale. We went here for breakfast on our last day in Fort Lauderdale. The food was really good. They cook with oil which is a plus for me because I don't care for my food to be cooked in butter. The eggs were cooked perfect, the... More

My father would bring me here all the time in the 70's. I have returned a few times recently. The staff is quick and the food is very good. The portions are generous and tasty. The place is clean and not changed much in the many years. And that a good thing, this was one of my favorite place to... More

This sort of retro diner was just what I was looking for and the food did not disappoint. Huge portions, swift service and the place was packed, says it all really. Second time we tried to visit we couldn't even get in the door because of the queue!

Been coming to Lesters since it was a truck stop just outside Port Everglades, back in the 70's. Had, and still have, the best breakfast in town, 24 hours a day. The coffee is outstanding, and will be served in the original 14 oz cups on request... Used to be every cup... Breakfast so good, we ate here both mornings... More

When ever we travel to Florida's East Coast our car always goes right to Lester's. Why, because the eats are the best in town. On our recent trip to the Ft Lauderdale boat show we dinned there twice and enjoyed the variety of home made Greek presentations. Also don't miss out on the fabulous deserts.

Thank Raymond R
