S&S Diner- A Miami Institution since 1938

We last lunched at the S&S on "Turkey Tuesday", and THIS was the plate of turkey (all white meat by request) they served!

This was the salad that went along with it!

As you can see, you will leave full of food and full of love for this 71 year-old restaurant. Our waitress, Yolanda, has worked there for 30 years and it seemed like she was waiting with baited breath to hear what we ordered, just so she could tell us what we should have ordered instead, smiling all the while- see?

Yolanda does not suffer fools.

The S&S's famous horseshoe-shaped counter.

She let me order this, my favorite dish at the S&S- blackened chicken with salad. I like spice and this lit up my taste buds. It's just as good every time I have had it, and it's hard to order anything else.

This was the menu board last Tuesday and as you can see they had already run out of a few favorites. I wanted to try the stuffed cabbage, but I just love that blackened chicken.

Yolanda finally caved and allowed two in our party to order hamburgers since they said they were the best burgers in Miami.

Good old diner mashed potatoes- the epitome of comfort food.

Just when we thought we couldn't eat any more, we spotted these on the counter, and got some key lime cheesecake to go. Mmmmm. A tart layer of key lime stuff on top of creeaaammy cheesecake. To die for.

It wasn't my first trip to the S&S and it certainly won't be my last. Yolanda recommends the daily specials but from what I have seen, you can't go wrong with any of the dishes here. The diner's address is 1757 N.E. 2nd Avenue and it's open from 5:30 AM to 7:00 PM Monday through Friday and 6:00 AM to 2:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday. Stop by and enjoy the food, watch the people and chat with the regulars for a while, it will be an experience you won't forget...and the eggs.

that keylime cheesecake looks absolutely divine. i always scout out the desserts first to see whether it's necessary to save room haha.

you should definitely submit your photos to their goal is to create a visual restaurant review site with a template similar to that of tastespotting.
