Fort Lauderdale Beach isn't Corfu by any stretch of the imagination, but this beach-adjacent Greek restaurant does a good job of making hungry patrons feel as if they've crossed a temporary bridge to all things Mediterranean. Brothers and owners Sam and George Kantzavelos offer the kind of dishes any tourist, local, or Greek native can appreciate in a casual setting that channels New Jersey diner fare at its finest. As a result, Greek Islands Taverna remains a longtime favorite among the beachgoing crowd thanks to a wide-ranging menu of classic Greek dishes for reasonable prices. Go for classics such as roast leg of lamb, flaming saganaki, chicken shish kebab, and killer chicken lemon soup. Insider tip: There restaurant offers plenty of Greek favorites, but try something that marries the best of American tastes with the country's stellar seasoning: baby-back ribs. They're grilled to perfection and flavored with lemon and oregano for a surprisingly perfect twist.
