Quick question: I'm going to be in Ft. Lauderdale/Pompano Beach this Thursday-Saturday morning. Any suggestions for good local food? Nothing dressy please, but price isn't a factor if the food is great.

      Here are some Pompano Beach favorites:

      906 S. Powerline Rd
      --A tiny, cash only (was the last time I went) Italian place, homemade pasta...open for lunch only during the week, and dinner as well on Friday and Saturday.

      La Mia Foccacia
      6303 Powerline Road
      --Lunch only. Possibly the best sandwiches I have ever eaten. Homemade foccacia with a variety of hot and cold combinations. Take out atmosphere with a couple of tables available if you must stay.

      900 East Atlantic Blvd.
      --If you're going to be in Pompano Beach, you've got to have some Brazilian food as this is South Florida's Brazilian epicenter. Great fish stew, feijoada, croquetas de bacalhau (codfish) and yuca, fun place.

      Cafe Maxx
      2601 East Atlantic Blvd.
      --This could be your splurge. A special place with a fabulous menu....from start to finish. Check out the website.

      Taqueria Dona Raquel
      793 South Dixie Hwy.
      --Authentic northern Mexican place that gets lots of kudos here on CH. Been there many times and love the tacos al pastor, tortas, huge soupy shrimp cocktail....homemade tortillas. Don't be bashful if you don't speak Spanish....the staff is quite gracious.

      Madras Cafe
      1434 SW 26th Ave
      (actually on Powerline Road just north of McNab Road)
      --Excellent Indian place, popular....buffet but I think you can order off the menu as well. Nice variety of dishes, appetizers, dessert.

      Taqueria Dona Raquel
      791 S Dixie Hwy W, Pompano Beach, FL 33060
