Down near Port Everglades, the original Lester’s (there are two branches) is another Fort Lauderdale institution, slinging hefty portions of good greasy-spoon fare (including breakfast 24/7) since 1967, when it started out as a truck stop. It’s got snappy, no-nonsense yet friendly waitresses; a following of office workers, clubbers, bluehairs, families, and other assorted locals; and a copious menu of stick-the-the-ribs American and Greek favorites (highlights include chicken-fried steak, moussaka, a raft of breakfast items all day long, and of course the much-touted 14-ounce cup of coffee). Decor is updated classic diner—black-and-white tile floors, neon trim.
