Pembroke Pines in the state of Florida has plenty to offer hungry visitors, from American sliders and baby back ribs, to hearty British classics such as bangers and mash and Asian favorites. Here are our pick of the great places to eat here.

Bahama Breeze

The island-themed restaurant Bahama Breeze offers diners an array of delicious dishes to choose from, including 20 that are priced at under $10 each. To understand the tasty cuisine on the menu at Bahama Breeze, think beef empanadas, lump crab stacks, chicken quesadillas, shrimp street tacos, wood-grilled turkey burgers, hot roast pork Cuban sandwiches and plenty of fresh fish. The restaurant also has live music every night and visitors are encouraged to enjoy cocktails late into the night.

Bare Bones

Specializing in barbecued and jerk meats, the motto at Bare Bones restaurant is: ‘if it’s not falling off the bone, it’s not seasoned to the bone’. Choose between mouth-wateringly tender baby back ribs, pulled pork, slow cooked brisket or perfectly seasoned jerk chicken. Take your choice of classic American sides, such as mac ‘n’ cheese, potato salad, seasoned fries and collard greens.

Brio Tuscan Grille

Using an authentic Italian oven, Brio Tuscan Grille serves up a variety of traditional homemade pasta dishes, top quality steaks and delicious roasted fish. All of their dishes are beautifully presented on elegant, hand-painted Italian plates and are best enjoyed with a side of freshly baked flatbread. For a dinner, opt for the fried calamari starter, the pasta alla vodka, the grilled lamb chops with pistachio mint pesto and the mascarpone cheesecake dessert. Brio Tuscan Grille also cooks up a fine brunch on Saturdays and Sundays that includes tasty dishes such as omelets, French toast and full breakfast plates.

Capriccio’s Ristorante

Featuring live entertainment nightly as well as incredible Italian cuisine, Capriccio’s Ristorante is owned and run by Sicilian-born owner Gianpiero Cangelosi and his wife, Karen. Open for both lunch and dinner, guests at Capriccio’s can feast on a delicious meal of authentic Italian fare including dishes such as carpaccio of tuna, stuffed artichokes, seafood risotto, veal milanese and limoncello chicken with asparagus. The ideal restaurant for a romantic dinner, Capriccio’s is both rustic yet stylish with plenty of private corners for couples to enjoy an intimate conversation over some fantastic food and wine.

Jersey’s Wings and Rawbar

Celebrating its 17th birthday this year, Jersey’s Wings and Rawbar is somewhat of a staple in Pembroke Pines. The classic American menu features daily specials alongside the regular menu options. A great deal to enjoy with friends is the daily wing fling for $25, which includes 25 wings, a basket of fries and a pitcher of beer or soda. Other tasty menu options include buffalo chicken strips, fish fingers, hot ham and cheese, burger bites, BBQ pork bites, gyro, sub sandwiches, soups and salads.

Mezes Greek Taverna

Mezes Greek Taverna specializes in small plates for sharing. For a family meal or a lengthy, luxurious lunch with a loved one, book a table and enjoy delicious dishes, all of which are perfect for sharing. In Greece, eating is a sociable experience that is to be enjoyed in big groups where the more dishes and flavor combinations that are on offer, the better the meal will be. Try the chicken souvlaki, stuffed peppers, tzatziki dip, grilled octopus and spanakopita or tuck into a hearty plate of moussaka or a meze mixed grill.

Sosta Cafe & Panini

A low-key but seriously good Italian restaurant, Sosta Cafe makes for an ideal lunch spot for those after something speedy and tasty. Stop by in the morning to sample an egg white, prosciutto, asiago and tomato bagel; at lunch to tuck into a caprese salad or a spinach and ricotta lasagna; or simply pop by in the afternoon for a slice of lemon cake and a mochaccino.

The Pub

Calling itself a ‘British-inspired but American-crafted’ establishment, The Pub is popular among both locals and tourists. A number of different events take place here throughout the week including pub quizzes on Mondays and happy hour on weekdays. The menu includes a mix of shareable dishes, light snacks and hearty meals. Groups of friends can enjoy plates of scotch eggs, calamari and pub sliders over a bottle of wine or jug of beer. Couples and families on the other hand, can take advantage of a hearty British supper of chicken and vegetable stew, shepherds pie, English pot roast or bangers and mash.
