One best seller, the tostada salad with tender chicken and creamy guacamole. The $3 dollar fish taco is also a hit, and the Cali Wrap features with fresh chicken, guacamole, lettuce and cheese.

Another popular Broward eatery is the Pink Submarine, A local favorite on Wilton Drive in Wilton Manors.

“One of our specials that we are known for, we put crunchy onions on top of the sandwich,” said Dawn Holloway, Owner of Pink Submarine in Wilton Manors.
