Jay’s Pizza & Pasta (West Palm Beach)
***** Jay’s Pizza & Pasta, 8983 Okeechobee Boulevard, West Palm Beach, Florida 33411, (561) 753-9997.
Got an absolutely dynamite “mom & pop” red sauce Italian joint for you…Jay’s Pizza & Pasta in West Palm Beach. Handful of tables inside, a couple outside…tee shirt/shorts’ ensemble is the dress of the day.
You can check menu/prices at www.jayspizzapasta.com.
Jay’s menu has loads of appetizers, salads, pastas, hot/cold subs, pizzas, meat/chicken/seafood entrees.
Let me start by saying that Jay’s makes a fabulous thin crust brick oven pizza—18″ large will run you $12.99. Trust Jeff Eats on this one, you definitely want to try the margherita.
A recent outing also had Jeff Eats “doing”—12″ veal parm sub ($7.29), 12″ philly cheesesteak sub ($7.29), penne ala vodka ($11.9, baked lasagna ($9.99). The veal and cheesesteak subs were right on the money. Nice crisp bread and the fillings were just right. The penne ala vodka and baked lasagna were also delicious.
Now so there is no misunderstanding…’cause I don’t want any of you guys to be hollering at Jeff Eats—Jay’s Pizza & Pasta isn’t a “fancy” mom & pop joint. I may-be confusing you here, but on its website there is a photo that may help to “explain” what this joint is all about…I’m gonna call Jay’s a “bare-bones” joint, if that helps.
Anyway…the food is real-good.
Jay’s also has something real cool—Pick Your Pasta, Pick your Size, Pick Your Sauce…3 types of pasta, 6oz or 9oz, 5 sauces…You do recall that a few seconds ago I told you that Jay’s wasn’t a “fancy” mom & pop joint? Sure You do! For you wise-guys out there…I thought the pasta-idea was cool.
If you are looking for good solid red “stuff” that goes great with a bottomless glass of Coke…Jay’s Pizza & Pasta is for you.
A quick reminder, that thin-crust pizza is an absolute must try.
Jay’s is open Monday-Saturday 11am-10pm, Sunday noon-9pm.
