If like me- you’re into the “mom & pop” diner concept, Jeff Eats can’t see you not loving this joint’s food, service, retro 50’s decor and vibe, reasonable prices, big portions!

***** City Diner, 3400 South Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach, Florida 33405, (561) 659-6776.

If- like me, you are a sucker for the faux-1950’s diner concept—you will absolutely love City Diner in West Palm Beach. It’s got it all… vinyl/formica booths, black & white checkerboard tile, vinyl covered stools, counter seating, old tvs with black & white shows, jukebox, oldies music, old signs, assorted old-“crap” (in the nice sense) on the walls and hanging from the ceiling— breakfast stuff, soups, salads, burgers, sandwiches, entrees, malts/milkshakes/sundaes. Unlike Johnnie Rocket type “chains”- City Diner is a “mom & pop” deal, so for good or bad, every decoration is a one-off…

Just so we are on the same page, nothing fancy going on here. City Diner serves really solid basic “diner” food.

A recent outing had me doing… bacon cheeseburger, french fries, onion rings, meatloaf, philly cheesesteak sub, chicken pot pie, chocolate milkshake. Like I said before, I’m a sucker for joints like this…they sort of take me back to a “simpler” time, when I didn’t have to wakeup worrying about Greece’s economy—back then, I really had no fears- because I knew that P.S. 179’s wooden desks would shield me from a Russian nuclear attack. Anyway…everything I ate was right on the money. A special shoutout to the chicken pot pie, one of the best I’ve had in a very long time.

Let me sum City Diner up this way…I loved it. I knew it wasn’t really 1957, but the food/decor/vibe made me recall my dad’s 1956 Olds 88 and an easier-way of living.

City Diner is open Sunday-Monday 8am-3pm, Tuesday-Saturday 8am-8:30pm.

So Called Experts A Dime A Dozen!

Posted on April 22nd, 2017 · American Music/Events/Other Stocks · 10 Comments »

This article originally appeared on August 14, 2014. Right now I’m watching CNN- and decided that right about now, would be a good time to “republish” the article!

* So Called Experts A Dime A Dozen!

You regular Jeff Eats’ readers know that my opinions are my opinions-plain and simple!

As I have told you countless times, what-Jeff Eats likes you might hate and vice versa.

This “opinion thing” applies to almost everything in life. Like-movies, tv shows, cars, women, men, food, sports, hotels, books, underwear, foot powder, shampoo,..you name it!

Anyway,

Last night around 6:30pm I was listening to the radio in my car. Don’t ask me why, but while driving I was searching the AM stations. For what it’s worth pretty slim pickings unless you want to hear about the Dolphins and the Dolphins and the Dolphins and the Heat and the Heat and the Marlins and the Marlins–but I did spend a few minutes listening to “some” financial program on 740AM or 710AM or 700somethingAM and caught a male-female team discussing the MARKET and STOCK PICKS…Now no fooling here, out of nowhere- the female part of the team-said…”When asked, Jesse James the criminal, the outlaw said that he robbed banks because that’s where the money was.” The male partner quickly corrected her saying that Willie Sutton had made the comment about banks having the money.

Anyway,

It got me to thinking, that if this female financial expert didn’t know Jesse James from Willie Sutton…what were the odds that she knew the difference between IBM and Costco or for that matter Lululemon?

The point… Just because someone claims to be an expert doesn’t make it so!

Just between you guys and Jeff Eats, Zigrino is an absolutely brilliant comedian who will have you cracking-up all night! Trust Jeff Eats when I tell you, in a few short years, you’ll be telling (that is if-you go and see her) all your friends that you saw Jenny Zigrino at the Boca Black Box before she become a major tv personality and concert performer!

The Skinny:

Jenny Zigrino

Friday, 5/26 (8pm) & Saturday, 5/27 (8pm)

Boca Black Box

from bocablackbox.com
With the sweetness of the Midwest and the iron balls of the East Coast, Jenny Zigrino is a comedian that packs a punch of truly original humor. She’s charmed audiences across the country with her wit, keen observations, embarrassing anecdotes, and brilliant honesty for a compelling performance you can’t ignore.

She made her late night debut on Conan O’Brien and was a recent guest on the hit shows @Midnight and Adam DeVine’s House Party Season 3 on Comedy Central. She’s been featured on TBS, Oxygen, TruTV, MTV Fox, and IFC.

A rising star in Hollywood, her first film appearance was a leading role in the film 50 Shades of Black with Marlon Wayans. She also stars in the film Bad Santa 2 with Billy Bob Thornton, the sequel to the 2003 hit film Bad Santa. She exploded onto the Just For Laugh’s New Faces Showcase for 2016 and has been featured in many festivals across the country. She is an alumni of The New York Comedy Festival, Women in Comedy Festival, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Moontower Comedy Festival, and many more.

She recently released an IFC Web series with her friend and comedian Jen Saunderson “The Filling is Mutual” available on IFC Digital.

Jenny is filming her first comedy special for Comedy Central in April of 2017.

In conclusion, she’s kind of a bad ass bitch.

***** New York Pizza Cafe, 7765 US Highway 41 Bypass South, Venice, Florida 34285, (9410 451-8362.

Got an absolutely dynamite pizza joint for you guys, New York Pizza Cafe in Venice.

You guys originally from New York- You know how every transplanted New Yorker in sunny Florida bitches about- “How the pizza down here sucks?” Well, feed them over-at New York Pizza Cafe and unless there is something seriously wrong with them- they’ll swear they’re back home eating a slice!

The other day, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats did a couple of New York Pizza Cafe’s slices and trust me, they easily matched-up against the best slices you, your friends, your mother, your aunt, your enemies grew-up on in the 5 boroughs!-and I don’t even know you, your friends, your mother, your aunt, your enemies!

Hole in the wall joint, pies/slices, calzones/garlic knots/subs/salads, order-pickup at counter, handful of tables, open Monday-Saturday 10:30am-9pm, closed Sunday!

Long story short, Vito- the owner told me some tale as-to how he was originally from Brooklyn so forth and so on- look, Jeff Eats was born and bred in Brooklyn- and I still don’t know how to steal a car! All I can tell you guys, is that this guy Vito-New York Pizza Cafe makes an amazing delicious thin crispy crust/ sweet sauce/ gooey cheese/ slight oil drip when folded-pointed down slice that absolutely kills!

Last but not least, killer pizza- 212 miles 1-way from Jeff Eats’ Boca Raton abode!

Burgers & Shakes (Miami Beach)

Posted on April 20th, 2017 · American Desserts Fast Food Miami Beach · 2 Comments »

***** Burgers & Shakes, 7401 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, Florida 33141, (305) 866-1145.

For our purposes we’re gonna call Burgers & Shakes “an out of sight, out of mind” fast food burger joint!

Real simple story, Jeffiut Eats first told you guys about Burgers & Shakes way-back on 6/18/14, truth be told, hadn’t been back since! Just between you guys and Jeff Eats, 7401 Collins Avenue isn’t even remotely close to Jeff Eats’ Boca Raton abode- thus the “an out of sight, out of mind” handle!

Anyway,

Last night, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats did dinner at Burgers & Shakes and like it did in 2014, the joint’s food, pleasant service, reasonable prices-blew us away! Delicious flat top grilled hamburgers/ French fries/ onion rings/ shakes, order-pickup at the counter, inside and outside seating.

Trust Jeff Eats on this one, if you like hamburgers, French fries, onion rings, shakes- you’re gonna like Burgers & Shakes! For you guys not into hamburgers, French fries, onion rings, shakes- the joint has a real good handful of other “stuff” so there’s no way- that your’e gonna starve!

By the way, Burgers & Shakes is absolutely perfect for the night owl crowd, as it’s open 7 days a week 11am-4am!

You can check menu/info at burgers-and-shakes.com.

***** Burgers & Shakes, 7401 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, Florida 33141, (305) 866-1145.
Hole in the wall fast food hamburger- joint. Very limited indoor/outdoor seating. Order/pickup at counter. Handful of wines, 11 beers on tap/30 or so bottled.

For some reason, today- everybody plays Albert Einstein when it comes to hamburgers. This was too fatty, this was too pink, this was too soft. Enough with the TOOs…trust Jeff Eats on this one, there is way too much analyzing going on. To tell you the truth, I can’t recall the last time I had a burger that was so bad, that Jeff Eats didn’t finish it. For sure, some burgers are better than other burgers-but like 6 degrees of separation they are all kinda related.

Absolutely loved Burgers & Shakes’ flat top grilled cheeseburger, french fries, hot dog, onion rings and chocolate shake.

Not much more to tell you other than the joint is open 11am-4am 7days a week, plays classic rock and its website is www.burgers-and-shakes.com.
