      Thanks for all the tips. I have been to Tamarindo before and it was very good and reasonably priced. I'll check out some of the others.

        I neglected to mention Mauro's for a legit NY style slice and the lounge area at Bourbon Steak for a great burger.

            I would add Satoro to the list. New restaurant in downtown Hollywood. I made my first visit recently and was impressed. Everything was great and reasonably priced. I'll post more details later

          I had my first Columbian Hot Dog @ a new place on Hwood Blvd in downtown Hwood called Borojo. I actually went with the the Chorizo dog and it was really good. Came with mozzarella, potato chips and bacon plus various sauces which I assume are traditional. I was scared b/c one was pineapple but it blended in nicely. It's a nice, clean. modern ,casual space. Inexpensive with 15 or so "gourmet" arepa options (chicken, pork, beef, shrimp) plus salads, Colombian burgers, dogs (fried?) and several appetizers. Looking forward to trying more menu items.

          1. re: The Chowfather

            Borojo UPDATE
            as promised I returned to try the not so "gourmet" arepas. Round two I sampled the pork loin with the traditional Colombian sauce, hogado. The hogado sauce was salsa-esque and overpowering. Didn't love the pork or the arepa either. I also sampled the tenderloin arepa which was served with mozzarella and a bechamel sauce. The tenderloin was fine but the sauce didn't work for me nor did the arepa. WE finished ONE of the three mini sliders (redundant ehh).... I stand by my chorizo-dog recommendation but unfortunately can't recommend Borojo for anything else. I apologize for the premature recommendation

        3. a must try is fat lou's a half block east of 95 on hallandale bch blvd, true chicago style food and the best italian beef and gyros around, comfort food at its best with beer wings 20 tv's and shorts and tshirt type of place

            1. re: seminole phil

              Upper Deck on Hallandale Beach Blvd.....sports bar with great food, lots of plasma tvs, and a pool table.

            2. Lately we have really been enjoying Noodles & Panini on Las Olas. Also, Pancho's Backyard in Hollywood is very good for Mexican/Cuban. Very good ceviche, too.

              1. There is a new Texas de Brazil (churascaria) next to the Gulfstream Race Track. If you register with them online - - they'll send you discount coupons. We took 3 teenage boys there and they were thrilled with the salad bar and the meats.
