Headed to Ft Lauderdale and we decided to stop for lunch. Great choice. Not expensive at all. We had Hamburgers, Tomato stuffed with Chicken Salad and Fried Green Tomatoes. Everything was great.

Thanks for kind words. The motel is dated but clean with hot running water....LOL Believe it or not the rooms are booked for the next two years. Who would figure right.
