Hong Kong City BBQ

“We have been eating here for many years and especially enjoy the Dim Sum. However, the entrees, soups, hot pots, and other specialty dishes are truly Hong Kong authentic. Try the following and you will agree: Salt and Pepper Shrimp (with shell) Clams in Black Bean Sauce Roast Pork Chow Fun (D... ”

“As many have said in there prior reviews. Ernie's is long time well known Fort Lauderdale watering hole and eatery. Friendly staff, generous portions and tasty barbeque.

“As stated in the other reviews, Dirty Ernie's (nee "Ernie's Restaurant & Rooftop Bar" for the tourists) is a long time Fort Lauderdale tradition.
