Boca Diner (Boca Raton)

Posted on September 18th, 2009 · American Boca Raton Breakfast


***** Boca Diner, 2801 North Federal Highway, Boca Raton, Florida 33431 (561) 750-6744.

If you have been down here for any length of time…you know that one of the great mysteries of South Florida is…Why aren’t there any New York Style diners down here? For sure we-got 24-hour Lester’s Diner on State Road 84 in Fort Lauderdale, but after that, the pickings are reaaaaal slim.

Anyway…let me start by saying, that in all likely-hood, that favorite Bronx-Manhattan-Brooklyn-Queens-Staten Island diner that you left behind, is better than the Boca Diner located in Boca Raton (where else?). Then again…beggars can’t be choosey.

The Boca Diner’s got the booths, the formica, the handful of Greek dishes, the challah bread, the pastries and more breakfast-lunch-dinner “specials” than you’ll know what to do with. The food is decent, fairly priced and the service is “diner-service.”

Now if you squint…you’ll think (for a few seconds anyway) that you are back-up North.

The Boca Diner is a good joint to know about…when you are looking for a change from the bagel-deli joint scene.

The Boca Diner is open Sunday-Thursday 6am-9pm and Friday-Saturday 6am-10pm.

    We had a horrendous experience there about 5 years ago, and I would NEVER, and I mean NEVER go back! They actually called the police on us if you could imagine how terrible the experience was.

    This is the most depressing place I have been to in south Florida. If you want a diner experience go to Ellie’s Diner on Federal Hyway in Delray Beach.

    Hey Toni, get real, Ellie’s is a faux 50s diner with everything fake. the food is fair if that. boca diner like jeff says is “DECENT.” Boca is better.

    Tried a hot turkey it was dried out and so were the fries overcooked… my friend had a breakfast there… totally dried out hash browns and bacon sitting around from probably when they opened. Place needs a good cleaning too. Also, let me say was there maybe 4 months ago and it was better food but not much….

    The service sucks, kitchen is filthy as well as the areas they make food. Utensils and plates are greasy and had reminders of food from prior customers Yack!!!! I checked the city and they have multiple violations regarding the hygiene!!! Sad thing any idiot can open up or run a restaurant and people are stupid enough to eat in these filthy places!!!!
