Food is average, marginally clean and terrible service. In fairness the place was packed and my party was happy with the meal (Mother's Day). I was less impressed and certainly felt the food was fair to poor. If you like diner's, of which there are few in Florida, you might like this place. If you are used to more northern... More

I met a friend here and we had a great hamburger and fries with a delish salad. The coconut creme pie however was a tad disappointing.

For a southern boy travelling in FL, it is hard to find one favorite for breakfast - grits! But the ones at Lester's were just right - no lumps, smooth, and just the right amount of water. Add butter and salt and they were terrific. The rest of the menu is great also. Enjoy!

We visited Lester's based on Trip Advisor reviews and discount coupons received at our vacation resort. Since it was Shrove Tuesday I wanted to enjoy pancakes...they were wonderful. They were served with fresh fruit of my choice. Very friendly, prompt service. Comfortable seating, an overall pleasant experience. We were a group of four and we were all pleased with our... More

I eat at Lester's a lot: especially later in the evening. The food is good for being diner food. They are friendly, and the service is always good. I love thier soups .. at night if you just want a place to eat and have coffee;or just to chit chat with friends, go thier.

I eat here weekly, well I used to. To start the food and service is always awesome however the cashier who I believe is also an owner was crazy rude and downright embarrassed me. I am a great tipper but 2 days ago I wasn't thinking and when the cashier asked me how much I want to tip on my... More

Stopping for lunch at Lester’s was a happy accident. I had failed to get over quickly enough to take my scheduled turn from the Fort Lauderdale airport to Weston, FL. My detour took us through Sunrise, FL and we stopped at Lester’s to eat and get our bearings. Lester’s feels like an old fashioned diner when you step inside. My... More

After seeing the breakfast area at our hotel, we opted to find somewhere clean for breakfast. Great service, fast and friendly. Very tasty and not a greasy spoon type of place. Lots of seating and busy.

I work nearby and so I met a few friends here for dinner after work. The dinner specials are fun ... you get quite a lot of food for the price. (I took half of my grilled chicken steak home with me). The 'special' even comes with a dessert! (And I looove dessert!). Our server, Denise, is the BEST! She... More
