Well, have you ever been in a situation where the Thanksgiving Turkey and the trimmings were awesome; but, right now let's get back to some tasty basics! Esther's Restaurant (27th Avenue - Miami Gardens) was my answer for 'Such A Time As This!' The staff is genuinely customer oriented. They even try to anticipate your every need? This being the...

Grilled meats are not served . Fried foods, yes! Health conscious menu not available. Very disappointing!

Food has a Latin flare, cheap and abundant. However, beware I ordered grouper and received catfish. I suggest you stay with chicken or breakfast.

Whether you are looking for fast food or good soul food, you can't go wrong with Esther's. What it lacks in ambiance it makes up for in tastiness. Esther's is a great choice in a neighborhood with not much to offer. Try the BBQ wings and collard greens, and don't forget the cornbread.

Many years ago it was one of the best ""soul food"" places here in Miami,, These days they are nothing more than the "GLORY foods can goods" it has no flavor no soul.. Its ok if you dont know better.

I had been warned but I didn't listen. The food lacks soul in my opinion. The collard greens were not done, the macaroni and cheese didn't take me there, and the rib pieces were tough. The chicken was seasoned well and the green beans were good. It's not the greatest but it's edible. I'll probably never return but I wouldn't... More

A friendly welcome, reasonable prices, delicious soul food, and enormous portions in the Miami Gardens branch of this mini-chain. Featured also are special home-made desserts. On the day of my visit, it was scrumptuous bread pudding. Several choices of rice and beans, fried plantains, variety of sides to go with fried or baked chicken, ribs, every imaginable favorite meat.
