* Tucker Duke’s Lunchbox & Market (Deerfield Beach, Valpariso)
* Tucker Duke’s Lunchbox & Market, 1101 South Powerline Road, Deerfield Beach, Florida 33442, (954) 708-2035.
The best way to describe Tucker Duke’s Lunchbox & Market…a table service–gourmet hamburger/sandwich shop.
For the record, Tucker Duke’s has 2- Florida locations…1- in Valpariso (Fort Walton/Destin area) and 1- in Deerfield Beach…
Just so you know, Jeff Eats hasn’t eaten in Tucker Duke’s…as a matter of fact, the Deerfield Beach location just opened for business 2-days ago.
You regular readers know or should know, that one of Jeff Eats’ favorite South Florida food blogs is Burger Beast-www.burgerbeast.com–with that in mind, the other day- Burger Beast gave the Deerfield Beach-Tucker Duke’s a terrific write-up…the review was so good, you’d swear that Burger Beast was one of the owners or at- the least, a relative of one of the owners. When you get a chance, checkout that review.
Based on Burger Beast’s accolades, Jeff Eats did some “research” which included checking YELP and Trip Advisor-reviews for the Valpariso location …and give or take one or two reviews–people absolutely “loved” the joint. From what I understand, the Valpariso restaurant is a converted gas-station-which sounds pretty cool- to me.
After doing my “internet search” on the Company, Jeff Eats took a ride over- to the Deerfield Beach location and met owners John and Jay. After that “meeting” I also spoke by phone with–third owner, Brian who created the Tucker Duke’s concept.
As previously mentioned, Jeff Eats has not yet eaten in Tucker Duke’s. I will tell you, that during my meeting with John/Jay, I saw some absolutely great looking- burgers/sandwiches come out of the joint’s kitchen. If you are wondering, the Deerfield Beach joint is real casual–with a woody look– like you find in bbq joints. By the way, Tucker Duke’s is located in a very small strip center (between a Subway and Dunkin’Donuts)–and has both inside/handful of outside tables.
Let me wrap this up for you…based on Burger Beast’s review-alone…the joint is worth a try. Throw in those “other” reviews and Jeff Eats’ reconnaissance—and I think that Deerfield Beach may have just given birth to an amazing-burger/sandwich joint.
