West Broward Restaurants

Does anybody have suggestions for some restaurants in the Western part of Broward county (Plantation, Sunrise, Coral Springs, etc...) for great local restaurants that don't cost an arm and a leg? Thanks for you help!

  1. A couple of good stand-bys in Coral Springs are Sazio's (outpost of the original one in Delray Beach) for interesting salads, basic Italian food and pizza (their seafood pizza is great); all with a good price point. Mambo Jambo for a wide range menu of Latin food, lots of good fish/seafood choices, large portions, reasonable prices (although fair warning...if you go on the weekend go early or eat inside as they have live, very loud music which makes conversation impossible if you're dining outside). Blue Moon Fish Co. has fabulous fresh fish, huge portion appetizers, reasonable prices. They are the less expensive western outpost of the one on the Intracoastal. Sadly, they no longer serve brunch in the Coral Springs branch.

      No more sunday brunch there?! :O :(

      We like The Whale in Parkland - it's on 441, north of HIllsboro. Great raw bar with a very good menu.

      We stopped by the new Bru's on 441 and Hillsboro (SE corner). It's a huge sports bar and very nice inside. They have an outdoor bar, inside bar, and a family dining area.

    2. I went to Flavors of Italy last night on University. Very nice but not cheap.

      1. Gold Coast Seafood Grill in Coral Springs, and I think Plantation too? has great food and very reasonable prices. In Coral Springs, it's located in The Walk, and Kilwins is right next door...yum...

        I also like Flavors of Italy on University just south of Sample, and as someone else mentioned, Mambo Jambo is very good. For greek food, Mythos in Coral Springs is very good. (further north in The Walk) and Big Bear Brewing Company as well is nice, and more casual.

        1. Local favorite "Rustic Inn" is right around griffin road and 95. It is an amazing crab house with some good steaks and local caught fish. Definitely worth checking out.

          1. I've been a West Broward resident for the past several years...and a chowfiend for even longer....and my top picks for Coral Springs would be Sakura Sushi (some of the best and freshest sushi I've had anywhere) and Art's BBQ, both on University Drive.

              I have to second the Sakura vote! Not only great sushi, but reasonable lunch deal anywhere.

                My husband would whole-heartily second your vote on Art's. He manages to grab a meal there at least once a week!
