If you’re a foodie looking at Davie FL homes for sale, this blog post is for you. There are many excellent restaurants in Broward County, but you’ll find a nice assortment right in Davie. It’s tough to choose the top restaurants since everyone’s taste is different, so I decided to go with popular opinion. These are some of the top restaurants as ranked by the TripAdvisor website.
LaSpada’s Original Hoagies
If you want a new experience in hoagie heaven, try LaSpada’s on South University Drive.

Their menu includes brisket, pulled pork and chicken, baby-back ribs, sandwiches and kid’s meals. If you’re having a party, they’ll prepare a “pick up pack” so you can enjoy barbeque for a crowd. The restaurant is also known for its patriotic theme and its philosophy of giving back to men and women in uniform.

Looking for an outstanding home-cooked meal? Many folks in town would send you over to Ally’s. One commenter on TripAdvisor said it best, “Best home cooking this side of home!” From its location on West State Road 84, Ally’s serves breakfast and lunch seven days a week. The breakfast menu is extensive. The lunch menu offers sandwiches of all varieties, hamburgers and salads, along with other things like fish and chips and gyro sandwiches.

It’s also a popular meeting place to enjoy after-dinner margaritas. The menu includes all of your favorite Mexican dishes, and a variety of house specialties. There’s even a kid’s menu that leans more toward chicken fingers and grilled cheese sandwiches, although the Chiquito Palomilla, flame-grilled skirt steak, is a house favorite.
