Home to steaming coffee and a tempting skip-your-dinner dessert display, Lester's has stood as a 24-hour haven for the hungry along State Road 84 since 1967. Truckers stop here on their way to Port Everglades, as do workers from the area's thriving marine industry, suits from downtown toting briefcases, along with sunburned visitors. Most likely you'll patronize this place between the hours of midnight and 4 am, when the food tastes best after a long night of drinking.
A stick-to-the-ribs menu includes breakfast anytime, homemade soups, sandwiches (try the Monte Cristo), salads, and dinners of generous portions. If your cholesterol count can take the hit, try the country-fried steak or the chicken-liver omelet.
