Mangos on Las Olas

|
I think this place is some kind of holdover Fort Lauderdale standard. Every time we're on Las Olas, it seems to be fairly busy and I could picture Blanche Deveraux lunching here.


What we had:

I had the chipotle chicken sandwich--moist chicken, nice balance with crispy applewood smoked bacon, not terribly present charred onions, and a chipotle BBQ sauce that leant a nice tang but no chipotle taste at all. Good ciabatta bun. Smashed potatoes were nice but bland.

My DH had the burger-- perfect mid rare, nice quality beef, bun could have been beefier.


D├ęcor:

I don't think it has been redecorated since the early 90s. We ate in some sort of sunny lenai, which is an improvement over the cave-like interior seating area. The place looked on first glance like it was going to smell of mildew, but thankfully did not.


Service:

The food took forever to come out and our server needed a helmet.


Overall impressions:

Odd pricing structure, with sandwiches only about a dollar cheaper than entrees. Surprising lack of mango on the menu. Menu needs copy re-vamping. You'd think the tea would be tropical.


Rating:

2.5 out of 5 salamanders, mostly for the service
