***** Thick & Thin Restaurant & Pizzeria.

Just got back from eating dinner at Thick & Thin.

The last time Jeff Eats ate there was 5/10/2008…talk-about out of sight, out of mind!

If you check Webster’s Dictionary under Terrific-Mom & Pop-Hole In The Wall-South Florida-Red Sauce-Italian-Joints…you will find Thick & Thin’s picture listed!


Looking for delicious pizza, veal parmigiana, meat lasagna, garlic knots, meatballs and spaghetti?- then make it your business to eat at Thick & Thin!


With the above in mind, printed below is Jeff Eats’ review from 5/11/2008.

Thick & Thin Restaurant & Pizzeria (Boca Raton)
Posted on May 11th, 2008 · Boca Raton Italian Pizza

***** Thick & Thin Restaurant & Pizzeria, 23062 Sandalfoot Plaza Drive, Boca Raton, Florida, (561) 482-7020.

Thick & Thin has been around since 1979.

There is an old saying, “Out of sight, out of mind.” When I first moved down to South Florida 16 years ago, Thick & Thin was one of the regular “mom & pop” red-sauce joints that got my business at least once or twice a month. Over the years, for one reason or another, Thick & Thin became an “out of sight, out of mind joint.” Now don’t hold me to this, but until last night, I think the last time I was in Thick & Thin was something like 7-8 years ago. Why I forgot about this joint?…I don’t know.

Anyway…last night I ate dinner in this hole-in-the-wall and I have to tell you, that the food is as good as when I was a regular customer. Great pizza…veal parmigiana…veal francese…veal marsala…You know the drill, soup or salad, entree, side of pasta and garlic rolls…

Thick & Thin is located in a shopping center on 441 in Boca Raton. The CVS is out of business…The Winn Dixie is out of business…Many other vacancies, yet this little joint which seats about 50 was jammed and the take-out business was booming.

This is a real casual joint, so tee shirts/shorts are the dress of the day. Like I said before, Thick & Thin has been around for something like 29 years, so obviously even without my patronage it has been doing just fine.

This joint is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner and by the way, in the center there is a great car wash Express Car Wash that for 8 bucks gives you one of the best exterior washes going.

    I’ve been eating there on and off for over 25 years, They make delicious pizza and other food.
    Your story is similar to mine.
    Out of sight and out of mind.

    Thick is located in a center that I rarely if ever go to. So like you I often forget that Thick is there.

    Haven’t been there in two years. Your article reminded me so I’ll be heading there this week for dinner.

    I use to like to eat at Thick & Thin and enjoyed their pizza and garlic rolls. Unfortunately, the place is sooo dirty and they need a better cleaning crew…

    A pile of inspections suggests they are neither clean or careful about food safety…

    I’ve been a customer for over 20 years.
    You’re nuts.
    Food is terrific and the restaurant has always been spotless.

      17 ( that’s !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) total violations (2 were/are critical violations) the last time they were inspected is nothing to be happy about …… How can you eat somewhere that is dirty?? That’s unequivocally disgusting and I truly hope you enjoy your meal there and are not visiting the emergency room…
