***** DISH OF THE WEEK (Sunday-8/24/14).

One of Jeff Eats’ favorite menu items.

Trust Jeff Eats when I tell you that Matteo’s broiled pork chop “covered” with grilled onions/mushrooms/cherry peppers is absolutely off the chart. The chop is HUGE and every time I’ve had it, it was a challenge to finish the whole thing. I’m telling you, this chop is something very-very special.

Just so we are straight with each other, Matteo’s is one of the best Italian joints in South Florida. Jeff Eats has literally eaten there countless- times and the food and service are always top-shelf.

Matteo’s is an absolute must try!

    Matteo’ baked clams are also terrific.
    I’ve never had the pork chop. Definitely worth trying.

    The food and service are always good.
    Ii have been eating in both locations for years and have never had a bad meal;

    I eat in Boca location. Love the food and service.
    Maybe you can explain why their bread is so lousy?

      Just had a chance to read your comments.

      Not commenting on good or bad bread…but, just maybe Matteo’s doesn’t want its customers filling up on bread–and as a result ordering less food. Just a theory.

      Thanks for reading…

    I have had that pork chop in Hallandale and it was outrageously good. It’s was a special on its chalkboard menu.
    You are right, it was huge.

  6. Nicky Greer says...

    Matteo’s is a top notch restaurant.
    I’ve been to several in NY and both Florida locations.
    An absolute must try.

  12. Michael DeFaro says...

    Best Italian food in Boca hands down.

    Love their baked clams and grilled pork chops.

  13. Jeff Eats,
    Our family recently moved to Deerfield Beach from Baltimore.
    We started to read your blog about a month ago and have to tell out that you really have your finger on South Florida’s food/entertainment pulse.
    You got some great picks and your Matteos’ in Boca was an absolute homerun. Some of the best Italian food that we’ve had in the past 20 years. For sure the best baked clams that we have ever eaten.
    Love the site and we look forward to trying many of your picks.
    The Greer Family
