Good food, an inviting environment, quality service and more is what each of the following restaurants offers its guests. Next time you’re looking for a great place to eat, consider one of these Lehigh Acres favorites:

  • Fancy’s Southern Cafe – Fancy’s is widely recognized as one of the best restaurants in all Southwest Florida. It has a southern comfort atmosphere with menu items that are equally comforting.

Therefore, be prepared to indulge and never go with a full stomach.
