***** Knucklehead Burgers, 4900 South University Drive, Davie, Florida 33328, (954) 434-0013.

Better late than never…Way-back on August 10, 2012, Jeff Eats promised you guys that I would try Nucklehead Burgers which at the time was a fast food hamburger joint that had just opened in Davie- and report back…My bad! Knucklehead slipped through the cracks, but I did get there yesterday for lunch…

Yesterday’s lunch had Jeff Eats “doing” cheeseburger, french fries, hot dog, onion rings…everything was right on the money! Just between you guys and Jeff Eats-this Knucklehead joint-is right up there with South Florida players like Shake Shack, Five Guys, BurgerFi-just to name but a few!

Real simple, I really enjoyed Knucklehead Burgers and if it was by-my-house (which it isn’t) in Boca Raton, Jeff Eats would be a real steady customer.

Before I turn you guys over to knuckleheadburgers.com for menu/prices/info- besides having hamburgers and hot dogs- the joint’s menu has a handful of sandwiches/salads/wings so the “party poopers” in your car-who don’t eat or for that matter -just don’t like hamburgers and hot dogs, are covered!

Knucklehead Burgers is open Sunday-Thursday 11am-10pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-11pm.

There are things in life that are “certain.”

1. When Jeff Eats buys a stock, the next tick is down.
2. After someone celebrates his or her 100th birthday-the next piece of news about that person ain’t gonna be good.
3. People worry about things happening and most of those things never even happen.

Anyway…

Jeff Eats’ buddies at Burger Beast (www.burgerbeast.com) already-got to Knucklehead Burgers and gave the 40 seater a rave review. Based on Burger Beast’s review, Knucklehead’s cool name/decor (www.knuckleheadsburgers.com) and a 20 minute phone conversation with Adam Knucklehead’s operations manager—Jeff Eats is gonna go out on a limb here and…green-light this joint for you.

Now-only certain things in this life are for certain…but Jeff Eats is feeling real good about Knucklehead. Now of course if Burger Beast’s stellar track record proves not to have been as stellar/certain) as I thought it was, Jeff Eats will have to further scrutinize Burger Beast’s picks a whole lot closer in the future.

I’ve got Knucklehead Burgers on my “to try” list.

If you get there before I do, let me know if my “gut” call on this joint was right or wrong.

Your input will certainly be appreciated..

* Ruffhouse

The City of Boca Raton’s Summer Series: 2015 Tribute Bands- serves up Ruffhouse-a tribute to Bpb Marley this coming Friday Night- 7/31/15 at 7:30pm…

Jeff Eats has gotta compliment The City of Boca Raton… thus far well organized/produced shows (been to the last 3). Trust me, I know that the shows are “free” but it’s no easy task “pleasing” the crowds that have already ranged from 2,000-4,000. One thought- just between you guys and Jeff Eats- Neil Zirconia who recently did a real-good Neil Diamond tribute- looked “miniscule” up on the Mizner stage-with a 1-man track-show…I’ve seen Zirconia with a 5 piece backup band- that’s the way The City of Boca Raton should have contracted for him to appear! Trust Jeff Eats, much more realistic looking/sounding/professional show!

Anyway,

Jeff Eats has seen Miami based, Ruffhouse- and if this kinda music is your bag, you will absolutely love the band!

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats are gonna be there, with an early dinner before the show at:

Dubliner Irish Pub (Boca Raton)
Posted on May 17th, 2009 · Boca Raton Irish

***** Dubliner Irish Pub, 435 Plaza Real, Boca Raton, Florida 33432 (561) 620-2540.

Personally, I wouldn’t give you 5 cents for most of the Irish “pubs” in South Florida…darkly lit-dark wood-beer joints, with mediocre food, at best.

Dubliner Irish Pub located in Boca Raton’s Mizner Park…is the exception to the rule. For sure, it has the dark wood interior–and dark lighting… but its food is terrific. A recent outing had me “sampling” prime rib sliders, hamburger, shepherd’s pie, french fries and macaroni & cheese…all absolutely delicious. Throw in top-notch djs and bands (Thursday-Saturday) covering the 1960’s-2009, reasonable prices/pleasant waitstaff and an out- door dining patio for “people watching” the Mizner Park crowd…and you got a real good joint.

Dubliner’s menu has all of the “Irish” standards…plus loads of appetizers, salads, burgers, sandwiches and meat/chicken/seafood entrees. It’s got a real nice beer selection and hard stuff.

Dubliner Irish Pub is open 7 days a week 4pm-2am.

Jordan’s Steak Bistro (Wellington)

***** Jordan’s Steak Bistro, 10140 West Forest Hill Boulevard, Wellington, Florida 33414, (561) 793-9394.

First told you guys about Jordan’s Steak Bistro way-back on 9/11/13.

Over the past 2-years, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats have eaten at Jordan’s a number of times and- absolutely love the joint!

Trust Jeff Eats on this one, Jordan’s Steak Bistro is as good-if not better than most of South Florida’s highfalutin-steak joints and it’s “cheaper”- (I think that I am suppose to say-less expensive)!

Anyway,

Reprinted down below is Jeff Eats’ 9/11/13 “story”- and a “deal” that I just got from localflavor.com which makes Jordan’s Steak Bistro even “cheaper” to eat at- or shall I say, less expensive than it normally would be.

Jeff Eats highly recommends that you guys try Jordan’s Steak Bistro and take advantage of localflavor.com’s “deal” (like I did, about 17 minutes ago)!

Jordan’s Steak Bistro (Wellington)
Posted on September 11th, 2013 · American Wellington

***** Jordan’s Steak Bistro, 10140 West Forest Hill Boulevard, Wellington, Florida 33414, (561) 793-9394.

Got a really good “American Style” joint for you…Jordan’s Steak Bistro in Wellington.

I appreciate—that the word STEAK is featured in the restaurant’s name…but Jordan’s really isn’t a steak-house….

The joint’s got a full bar with tvs and a casual décor. When you check Jordan’s website- www.jordanssteakbristro.com for menu/prices, you’ll find a couple of photos, so you’ll know what the restaurant looks like.

Jordan’s menu covers grilled cheese sandwiches to bone- in ribeyes…so don’t worry, everybody is gonna find what to eat.

A recent outing entailed, fried calamari-margherita flatbread-grilled Caesar salad-cheeseburger-18oz bone-in ribeye…and I must-say, everything was delicious. I especially enjoyed the ribeye-ranking it up there with the stuff you catch in the best South Florida steakhouses. On the price front, let’s say “reasonable” and service was as pleasant as can be.

Just so we are on the same page here, that ribeye ran 39 bucks and the steak fries side was another 5 …so– we ain’t exactly talking neighborhood “sports bar” prices—but all in all, the bet here is, that you won’t have to rush out to some ATM when you see the bill…then again, maybe you will have to, but I don’t know, because Jeff Eats hasn’t looked in your wallet-lately!

Let me wrap this one up for you this way…

Jeff Eats really enjoyed Jordan’s…

Jordan’s Steak Bistro is open Monday-Thursday 4pm-10pm, Friday-Saturday 4pm-11pm, Sunday 4pm-9pm.

* Jersey Wiseguys.

Jeff Eats absolutely loves the Jersey Wiseguys. No ifs, ands, or buts- one of the best Frankie Valli & The 4 Seasons tribute bands in South Florida…throw in that- these guys also do great covers of the hits of the 50’s-to-today and you got yourself a band that’s more than just a one-trick-pony!

Trust Jeff Eats on this one, I’ve seen the Jersey Wiseguys a number of times- and they put on a terrific show!

The Pavilion Grille has 2-options for this “party”- $45 “all-in-dinner” or a $10 cover in the bar area.

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats are gonna go for the 90 bucks- (for you non-mathematicians out there, that’s 45 bucks a piece)!

One quick note, both the Jersey Wiseguys and the Pavilion Grille have huge followings…if you wanna-eat dinner, be smart and make a reservation ASAP!- ’cause this joint is gonna be jammed!

Mike’s Italian New York Style Pizzeria & Restaurant- Kendall/Miami

location-slide1

***** Mike’s Italian New York Style Pizzeria & Restaurant, 13712 Southwest 84th Street, Miami, Florida 33183, (305) 382-6200.

You guys do-know that there are more “mom & pop” Italian joints in South Florida- than there are Chins in a Chinese phonebook!

With the above in mind, I got a real good “one” for you- Mike’s Italian New York Style Pizzeria & Restaurant- in Kendall…the joint has been around since 1980 and has seating inside/and outside.

When you check Mike’s- website- mikespizzaofkendall.com you’re gonna-find the “expected” menu loaded with appetizers/pizzas/pastas/subs/meat-chicken-seafood entrees…

A recent dinner outing of Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and another couple netted us- large cheese pizza, veal parmigiana sub, sausage & peppers sub, baked lasagna (ricotta cheese & meat sauce), chicken piccata, fried calamari and I gotta tell you-good stuff!

location-slide2location-slide3

Just between you guys and Jeff Eats, I’ve been in a ton- and I do mean a ton of South Florida “mom & pop” Italian joints…some are dynamite, some are almost dynamite, some are good, some are just passable and some are just “meh” (people on YELP love to use that word)…

Long story short, if Mike’s Italian New York Style Pizzeria Pizza & Restaurant was by my house, I’d be a-steady customer. Jeff Eats loved the thin/crisp/sweet sauce pizza and the subs and lasagna killed. Didn’t really care for the calamari or chicken piccata -but you guys do know, that this food “reviewing” gig is just a game-in the first place, anyway! By the way, my friend Artie who was with me, liked the calamari- but as far I’m concerned he knows-dick about calamari, now as for pizza, that’s whole ‘nother story!

Mike’s is my kinda restaurant…good food, reasonable prices, super friendly wait-staff, plenty of Coca Cola, shorts/tee shirt friendly. If Jeff Eats was forced to rate Mike’s…somewhere between, good and almost dynamite- take the calamari and chicken piccata out of the equation- almost dynamite. Hey! I’ve been telling you guys for years, that “rating systems” are dumb!

If you live or work in Mike’s- neighborhood, you now know about a real-good “mom & pop” Italian joint to eat-in or take-out from!

Mikes Italian New York Style Pizzeria & Restaurant is open Sunday-Thursday 11am-10pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-11pm.

VERY FEW PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT THIS NEW CONCERT VENUE. Rest assured, guaranteed, the “secret” is gonna get out- but in the meantime…

Little River Band and Jefferson Starship are the next two scheduled shows.

Like I said 2-seconds ago, every seat is good…there is table and row seating- and a bar area/with some finger-food (if you’re hungry).
