By Carissa Chesanek  |  July 9, 2014

The guys behind Fort Lauderdale favorites YOLO and Tarpon Bend recently added Fork & Balls to their Broward roster. Here's what to know before you go.

The Gist: A rustic space that's casually cozy with a hearty meatball-focused menu.  

The Vibe: Relaxed but busy with the ready-to-mingle after-work crowd.

Eat This: B&E Chicken (chicken balls with roasted tomatoes, white beans and parmesan) and chocolate chip cookies for dessert. 

Drink This: House cab by the glass. 

Skip This: The red wines on tap — they're kind of flat and for the price, you're better off ordering a bottle.

For Fans Of: Dolce Italian, Joey's and Sardinia Enoteca Ristorante

The Damage: These meaty plates will tackle your appetite but not your wallet.   

The Verdict: With its top-notch service, friendly vibe and mega meatball selection, we're happy to make the drive north for another visit.
