Wowies Sports Grill (Boca Raton)
***** Wowies Sports Grill, 7036 West Palmetto Park Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33433, (561) 392-5040.
As everyone knows, South Florida’s landscape is literally covered with sports bars…there is this Ale House and that Ale House…this Duffy’s and that Duffy’s… this Hooters and that Hooters…now let me tell you about WOWIES SPORTS GRILL which puts these other joints to shame.
Wowies which opened in March 2008 is located in Boca Raton. The joint has the obligatory “usual” 25 giant flat screen tvs, juke box, large bar and cute waitresses dressed in referee shirts & short shorts. Wowies also has live bands/DJs “performing” on weekend evenings. The joint also has a canopied out-door dining patio.
WHAT SEPARATES WOWIES FROM THE COMPETITION IS ITS FOOD…TONS OF APPETIZERS, PIZZAS, SALADS, SOUPS, SANDWICHES, PASTAS, FISH-MEAT-CHICKEN ENTREES, DESSERTS. Now get this…the food is absolutely terrific. Wowies doesn’t serve “bar food.” Wowies’ food is quality stuff, on the same level as The Cheesecake Factory and Houston’s Restaurant.
Just so you know, Wowies’ prices are exactly what you would expect from a neighborhood sports bar…let’s call them extremely reasonable.
Do yourself a favor and visit www.wowiessportsgrill.com and take a look at this joint’s menu, daily food/drink specials, entertainment schedule and growing photo collection.
Wowies is not your typical sports bar. It really is a great restaurant that just happens to be themed as a sports bar. Wowies is open 7 days a week for dinner…lunch is served Monday-Friday.
You now know about a relatively new joint that has yet to be discovered by the “masses.” If you are wondering what type-age crowd Wowies draws, a recent Friday night had ages 18-90. The juke-box covered the latest hits and cover band 1 Trac Mind did fantastic versions of “Heat Wave-White Rabbit-Ticket To Ride-American Band-Brown Eyed Girl” just to name a few.
One final note… Wowies has a dessert that you absolutely-positively must try…ZEPPOLES which basically are fried dough-balls covered in confectioner’s powdered sugar. Every order is made fresh. Zeppoles are normally found at fairs and carnivals not in restaurants. Wowies goes out of its way, to differentiate itself from the run-of-the-mill joints.
Try Wowies…it is a terrific place!!!
My wife and i just ate there.
The food is terrific.
Delicious house salad, honey wings, bacon cheeseburger, lemon chicken. ff and sweet potato fries.
This restaurant is a must try.
This place is an oddity. Like a blue collar college sports bar. The food is mediocre at best.. The wings were small and over cooked. Burgers were ok at best. The DJ was asking trivia questions for pitchers of beer. Could not even enjoy the Heat Game. Check it out for yourself, i dont think you will go back for seconds.
