Restaurants

An eclectic mix of both local haunts and chain restaurants lines the perimeter of Lawn Acres, giving residents quick and easy access to a wide variety of dining options. New Wong's Chinese Food sits directly across Washington Street from Lawn Acres and offers a comfortable dining room as well as take-out and delivery. Favorites from the menu include the orange chicken and the seafood delight. Local families love New Wong's because of the jumbo family packs, which include up to 20 chicken wings, entrees and sodas. For some good-old American fare, Lawn Acres residents travel a few hundred feet down State Route 7 and stop in at Quickie's Burgers and Wings. If anyone assume a place like this only serves traditional burgers, fries and hot wings, it only requires a cursory glance at the menu to prove otherwise. For example, the mahi mahi burger with onion straws has been a local favorite since the restaurant opened, and several reviewers say this spot has the best chicken sandwiches in Hollywood. Young Circle in downtown Hollywood offers the city's most abundant concentration of nightlife, featuring a mix of pubs, wine bars, dance clubs and live-music venues. The drive or cab ride down Hollywood Boulevard from Lawn Acres covers less than 3 miles. For neighborhood residents who wish to stay within walking distance for drinks and entertainment, the immediate area surrounding Lawn Acres offers several options, including Rickey's Restaurant, a small dive bar directly across State Route 7.

History

The city of Hollywood was founded in the 1920s by Joseph Young who dreamed of creating a motion picture Mecca on the east coast similar to its California namesake. While that vision never materialized, Hollywood grew up in the ensuing decades, attracting thousands of residents with its authentic Florida lifestyle and convenient location between the two larger cities of Fort Lauderdale and Miami. Like most of Broward County, development in Hollywood began to spread west of the city's center following World War II. This gave birth to neighborhoods such as Lawn Acres, which was developed almost entirely in the 1950s and 1960s and still retains its charm from that era. While nothing of the sort exists within the boundaries of Lawn Acres, downtown Hollywood is known for its arts scene. This includes the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood, which hosts numerous events such as an annual New Years party.
