This is a “real deal” diner!

Trust Jeff Eats on this one. If you like diners, you will absolutely positively love the Peter Pan Diner.

The joint is open 7 days a week 6am-11pm.

By the way, Peter Pan Diner makes a CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP ($6) that absolutely kills!

Let me start by saying, “that I am not trying to cure cancer” with this Peter Pan Diner “writeup.” This is a 365 days/24 hours a day joint. It has been around since 1978 (I seriously doubt that the decor has been updated one iota since then) and serves “basic” diner food at diner prices. If you are looking for gourmet stuff, don’t even think of walking into Peter Pan Diner. This is a very good place to know about, “like” last night at 11pm when I was driving home from AAA after watching the Miami Heat lose to the Detroit Pistons by 2 points. A cheeseburger, fries and a Coke “helped.”

End of story.

    This diner serving the Fort Lauderdale area for 44 years was just named best in Florida

    The Peter Pan Diner isn’t just a restaurant. It’s a culinary time machine. Step into a low-key space with two big dining rooms, with booths, tables and a counter. Not sleek, not trendy, but comfortable. The prices may startle you, but not in the heart-stopping, credit-crushing way to which you have become resigned: This is an affordable restaurant. There’s an excellent chance the waitresses will call you “hon,” and the huge menu seems to encompass every American comfort food served between breakfast and dinner. Pancakes and eggs, bacon and sausage. So many ways to eat eggs! As breakfast slides into lunch, you’ll find hot open-faced sandwiches with piles of tender meat on bread, smothered in gravy and nestled next to a mound of mashed potatoes. Tuna melts and patty melts, Reubens and Rachels. Five different club sandwiches. Greek specialties like gyros and spinach pie (from a family recipe by the founder’s aunt). And more: salads and seafood; eggplant parm, lamb shank, fried chicken, stuffed cabbage; house-baked cakes and ice cream sodas. TOP VIDEOS It’s home-cooking, seasoned with the power of memory. And to many diners in and around Fort Lauderdale, it’s home. The long-time Oakland Park restaurant, which was just named the best diner in Florida by Reader’s Digest, has survived 44 years in a growing, changing city. And as Fort Lauderdale strives to reinvent itself as a culinary destination, the family-run Peter Pan Diner pleases its customers with the past.
