Lester’s Diner originally opened its doors back in 1966, and has been serving classic diner fare 24 hours a day ever since. Everyone loves their patty melt, but our favorite part of menu is the huge selection of cakes and desserts!

Flashback Diner

220 South Federal Highway

Hallandale Beach

Open 24/7

Flashback Diner does ‘retro’ right, with booth seating, memorabilia artwork and an outdoor patio with white fan-backed chairs. Along with a generous menu filled to the brim with all the classics, you can also choose from a list of sandwiches named after celebrities, such as the “Sloppy Joe Dimaggio” or the “Bruce Lee Teriyaki Chicken Sandwich.” There are 3 locations to choose from, but we’re partial to this one in Hallandale Beach because it is close to the major attraction Gulfstream Park Raceway and Casino.
