Bozo’s Sub & Sandwich Shop (Fort Lauderdale)
***** Bozo’s Sub & Sandwich Shop, 601 Southwest 12th Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33312, (954) 763-2352.
Bozo’s Sub & Sandwich Shop…order at the counter—pickup at the counter—seating outside. Real simple menu…sandwiches, hot/cold subs, handful of salads.
At this juncture, I could discuss how Willard Scott way back when-played Bozo in the Washington, DC area (you do know that Larry Harmon, Bozo’s creator, franchised the Bozo the Clown concept all over the country) and that Willard, shall-we-say, “morphed” the Bozo look into Ronald McDonald—but I won’t.
Anyway…I recently tried Bozo’s—steak/onions/peppers sub ($7.75), chicken salad sub ($5.95), patty melt (grilled meat patty-grilled onions-provolone cheese -toasted rye bread-$4.95)…now for a play on words, THIS JOINT AIN’T CLOWNING AROUND. The food was delicious. A special shoutout to that patty melt, right on the money.
If there is one criticism, Bozo’s menu could be bigger. Don’t get me wrong, you’ll definitely find something to eat…but a few more items couldn’t hurt.
Bozo’s is open Monday-Thursday 10am-4pm, Friday 10am-6pm, Saturday 10am-4pm. The joint is closed on Sunday.
