El Tamarindo Restaurant and Coal Fired Pizza
Posted by NYCer on 03/20/2014
The only thing worse then the delivery...was the pizza. I waited 1.5 hours for their "specialty margarita" pizza and ceasar salad to be delivered. I wish it took longer. The pie was soggy, cold and tomatoes pale, the crust was tasteless. The cheese was not even as good as string cheese. I can't believe they have any stars at all because when I called to complain they could not have cared less. I have new respect for frozen pizza. You don't have to be a pizza snob coming from NYC to dislike this pie. Notice I didn't mention the salad? It's not because it was good. Seriously, defrost that leftover meatloaf before ordering from this place.

Coal fire pizza! Who knew this could be so delicious? It is. Trust me, I know food. That's where the name BIG Daddy comes from. The outside of the restaurant is nothing to look at. But this does not matter because you are eating inside the restaurant. The experience begins the moment you step foot inside. The staff is inviting, greeting everyone in our 10 person party with great big hellos. The coal fire burning oven is blazing at 750° off to the left. Sous chefs are prepping food in the back. The dining room to the right is tastefully decorated. We called ahead to reserve a table and it was waiting for us when we arrived. We ordered two pizzas - The house specialty pizza and a white pizza With prosciutto along with The pork tenderloin sandwich and all of our eaters gave rave reviews. The service was top-notch. It was like they Could read our minds bringing ice tea refills before we even asked. Fresh ingredients, unique Taste. This place is a winner! We will be back!

When we went to Hallandale last year we contimplated eating here. When we drove past it we weren't sure due to the other businesses and atmosphere that is not the most inviting, so we decided not to. What a mistake! When we went back this year we tried it, we also went back three more times in the eight days we were there. The service is impeccable, they could not do enough for us. They were so nice and polite. The owner also showed us the coal oven and discussed the type of wood and the process of cooking the in oven. Everything we tried was great. Besides the pizza, we had the roasted garlic/olive oil pasta, it was great. The pork sandwich was enough for two meals and the palimino and carne asada were equally tasty. We have recommended this restaurant to most of our friends and will definitely return.

The specialty pizzas are a well kept secret. I started going to El Tamarindo in Ft Lauderdale Hallandale is a keeper. Staff friendly quick service. Try it.

This restaurant definitely qualifies as "a hole in the wall". However, the packed dining room and constant take out orders being prepared speak volumes. You are always greeted friendly, the service is wonderful. The food is spectacular! The menu is quite diversified and they will customize to your liking. This is truly a "one of a kind" concept. The quality for the price is second to none. If you like Broccoli Rabe you must try it over penne, you won't be sorry! The best Pizza EVER, never soggy and bursting with flavor!! I relcoated and now travel from Plantation as often as possible. It is worth the trip!

This Pizza is definitely the best around. We get it delivered and have never been to the restaurant so I can't comment on anything other than delivery. Fast, hot, yummy! Keep the delicious pizza's coming!
