Decent Tex-Mex in Boca, Pompano AREA?

Only one is worthy....Celito Lindo's Pompano Beach. The original one is the best and is located off of Dixie Hwy. but I believe there is another on Federal Hwy between Pompano and Lighthouse Pt.

Any good eats in the Weston Fl Area?

I really like Flannigans it's a seafood restaurant with a great bar. Even though it's in Weston and 30 minutes from the beach, it is on the water. Local hang out with great fish and chicken wings.

Great Eats in Fort Lauderdale.....

The best suggestion I can give you is my personal favorite Timpano's Italian Chop House. It is located at 450 las olas blvd. which is right around the corner from your hotel. That is if you don't mind paying for great food. It's pricey but well worth it. They have one of the best steaks the 12oz N.Y. strip, the filet is super tender and the garlic mashed potatoes are to die for. My fav. appetizer is tomato, basil and matz. stacked and drizzled with balsamic reduction.....perfecto.
Many other people rave about Jackson's steakhouse which is also on las olas just down from Timpano's they are said to have great food but when I was there I wasn't impressed. But they do cary the biggest live lobster I've ever seen around in a little red wagon. Both of these places are 5 star.
Mark's on las olas is also popular but pricey. Mark (chef) prepares his menu's based on what is readily available at the fresh markets. I've never been but it has great reviews. All are very fine dinning and have a great ambience!! Timpano's has a live jazz band on Saturday nights and a great martini bar at the front of the restaurant.
Hope this helps.....

D Wade's Sports Grill - Fort Lauderdale

I've been to the Boca one several times but my most recent visit was 05/09/2008 and the food is consistently outstanding. I love it there, they installed video cameras on top of the building to monitor the parking lots 24/7 which makes you feel safer with all that's going on with the crimes happening down the street at Town Center Mall.
