Good at most everything

Typical diner menu - a whopping selection of choices, and most of it is good, but not excellent. Prices are low, but service and quality are excellent. A wonderful choice if your party is undecided about what to eat, and the deserts are pretty good too. Great place to sit and chat with friends...or... read more

Went on a late Sunday morning for some breakfast. We ordered the waffles and french toast both with bacon. Well they didn't skip on the bacon, we each got about 8 full slices each. The French Toast was 3 Hugh slices and the waffle was the size of a large plate.

I have visited 3 of the Lester's in Broward County. Without a doubt the Margate location is tops! Everything is home made, fresh and delicious. They make a soup special everyday and one is better than the next! If I could steal their Lentil Soup recipe I would. Burgers, salads, sides galore. You cannot choose a bad meal. True to... More

The worst ever. Stopped in for a meal with my sister. Rude hostess seated us. Female waitress started out okay and then became non-existent. We asked other staff for our waitress. No show. We asked them for help..never came back. Grape leaves were cold. No silverware or napkins. Place was slow, so no excuses. Register staff made us wait to... More

I have eaten at Lester's since the 70's on hwy 84. This one is nearest to my home, of the three. I had breakfast: scrambled eggs, home fries, orange juice, rye toast, coffee. The service was fine, so was the food. My coffee was cold. She tried, but it never got above warm.

Lester's is great for breakfast as far as I'm concerned. I had scrambled eggs, bacon, toast and hash browns...just what I was hungry for! My server was very attentive...stopped by my table at least 3 times to check.

I like to visit restaurants at least twice before deciding that I will never return. My husband, daughter, and I went a few months ago (our first visit). We had spinach pies and the food was okay, but nothing great. The server we had (and I don't remember name) was very nice and replaced the meal after the busboy threw... More
