LESTER'S DINER--FORT LAUDERDALE--REVIEW

Saturday, October 20, 2012



Lester's is nothing like it was 35 years ago when I first went in there but then what/who is. I don't go as often as I use so I had sticker shock looking at the menu and even more when I ordered. $1 extra for a slice of tomato and then not even a good slice taste and size wise?
I had a turkey sandwich on rye with that $1 tomato, onion and lettuce ($9.99) and a regular cup of coffee--they are known for over sized cups if you want it--($1.99--don't know if that is the same price for the larger one.) The sandwich was fine and the coffee weak.
Allen had a chicken salad platter ($11.49) which was a good size and a cola ($1.89) but wasn't offered bread or crackers with his salad.
Usually we would have one of their huge pieces of carrot cake for me and chocolate cake for him but we were on the theatre in Miami and had to get going.
Again I keep hearing how bad service in restaurants in Fort Lauderdale but I haven't found it yet. While our server wasn't 5 star she was good.
The bottom line is that spending $32 (including tax and tip) in a diner is a bit much even if they have redone the place and there is a lot of stainless steel around!.
As yelp says for 2 stars "Meh. I've experienced better." I have--and at Lester's!

    I hate it when a good old place to eat turns into a modern expensive place to dream about.
