This is a no brainer!

Hope this helps and thanks for reading…

Got a real good “mom & pop” American-diner joint for you…Gilbert’s 17th Street Grill.

The menu is not large…but has enough soups, salads, burgers, sandwiches, grilled items and desserts…so nobody’s gonna starve. A recent outing netted me a cheeseburger, bbq ribs and a philly cheesesteak sandwich…everything was delicious and priced just right. Nothing fancy here, just real good food. Take a look at the joint’s website for menu/prices/details.

Gilbert’s is open Monday-Saturday 11am-9pm. The joint is closed on Sunday.

    Hi Jeff, Just went to this place called Stingers Pizza in Pompano Beach 1201 So
    Ocean bl. They call it a Pizza place but they have the best Hamburgers and steak
    sandwich in the area. It’s a Jeff eats kind of place. Give it try you will like

      Stingers is NOT a Jeff Place! There is really no other restaurants in the “area” as its on the beach across from Beachcomber Resort.

      It’s an ok bar, lame pizza, and ok breakfast. The layout of the place is terrible and its in a goofy strip plaza with plenty of parking.

      I like Dive Bars, and this is a dumpy dive bar. Don’t waste your time at Stingers!
