The Best of South Florida: Best Wait Staff
The food tastes better when you get service with a smile, so where can you find the best wait staff in town?
(WSVN) -- Sweet smile.
You looking for the best service in South Florida? Well, honey, look again. Iíve got a job to do. Hey, I've got another order, lets go!
We begin with our viewers' Third Favorite - Houstons in Coral Gables.
"It's a hard-working place and they don't hire people who aren't hard workers as well."
Well, apparently that hard work is paying off.
This place has built a reputation for delivering food at a fast pace.
"They're very attentive. You just look around and boom, they're there."
The secret to Houstons superior service... Teamwork.
"Teamwork is basically the core of our service."
"The fact that we get along, we work well together, and we just make the restaurant flow."
And they promise to get you in and out right on time.
"I think they accomplish what they intend to."
Apparently, they've accomplished a lot at our Second Selection - Ruth's Chris - also in coral gables.
However, take a good look at the exterior because we can't take you inside.
Ruth's Chris rules - no cameras during business hours.
"Big mistake, big mistake."
But if you really want the Best Service In South Florida, well then come on down to a south beach institution. That's right, we're talking about The One, The Only Joe's Stone Crabs.
There's just one problem - they're not open until October 16th.
"Well, Joe's the combination is just fabulous. You want a great atmosphere, great service, well dressed wait staff, and its fun."
Yes, it's true Joe's is much more than stone crabs.
When we there last spring, we saw firsthand how the staff can turn your meal into an edible experience.
"You come here for the ambiance, you come here for the salads, you come here for the whole experience in dining."
And you come here to be treated like somebody special.
"There are not many places like this in South Florida."
Next week, dining of a different sort.
We'll show you the area's premier diner.
Right now, we're currently collecting votes for the area's best dessert menu.
