Man, it’s been years since my last visit to Grampa’s Restaurant (formerly Grampa’s Deli & Cafe) in Dania Beach. And to be quite honest, back then, it didn’t do much for me.
The new owners of Grampa’s reached out to me via Instagram and invited me to try a handful of their signature dishes. I was game as long as a patty melt was in the cards.
Grampa’s is a few hundred feet from Jaxson’s Ice Cream Parlor. Jaxson’s was my backup plan in case all hell broke loose.

My three meal favorites were the pork roll breakfast sandwich on a house-rolled bagel. In this case, I chose the everything bagel, which was 🔥

And lastly, Grampa’s unassuming cheesesteak sandwich. What makes it stand out? Garlic butter…yes, I said garlic butter, a sneakily delicious move.
Alright, that wasn’t last; there was a hot dog knish I was holding out on. Where has this been all my life, and when can we be reunited?
And, there you have it, a landmark restaurant in Dania Beach since 1957, Grampa’s still delivers the goods. This makes even more sense since they’re now #burgerbeastapproved.
