Budget Friendly and Kid Friendly in Ft. Lauderdale
My husband, my 20 month old, and I will be going to Ft. Lauderdale in April, and I'm looking for must-go-to restaurants that are budget and kid friendly. My DD does well in restaurants, but I don't want to take her somewhere that wouldn't "want" her there. Non-chains or local chains only, please! Thank you!
I would look through these links of recent folks asking for budget places in FLL...
Then pick 3 to 5 that sound interesting to you... then post again and we can talk more about kids, still open, hours, etc.

Dirt cheap (yet quality) lunch/dinner in Fort Lauderdale?
Please comment on the list of FLL restaurants
Your Thoughts on My Ft. Lauderdale Picks
Yes, this is for a vacation. We're coming from Ohio and staying at the Pelican Grand. We aren't too picky, but no where too spicy (or at least have some non-spicy food...I like spice, husband doesn't). I'd love to try some local food or anything unique. I don't mind driving a little ways, especially since our hotel isn't too close to anything.
Those 3 sound good. We love Mexican, but probably don't get a lot of REAL Mexican in Ohio! Seafood is a favorite, and hole-in-the-wall places are great. Thank you! I'll look into these!
I assume this is a vacation. Where are you coming from, where are you staying, and what do you like? That may help us figure out what would work for you. I don't eat often in FL on the cheap but three reasonable kid friendly places that come to mind are:
Zona Fresca - Great local mexican chain (3 restaurants)
Tarpon Bend - Seafood bar with outdoor seeting and a short walk from the Museum of Discovery and Science.
Hot Dog Heaven - On Sunrise. Hole in the wall hot dog place. The fried salami sandwich is killer.
