Sweet Dewey’s BBQ (Boca Raton)
***** Sweet Dewey’s BBQ, 9181 Glades Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33434, (561) 488-9688.
Last night Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats ate at Sweet Dewey’s BBQ in Boca Raton. Wanna- talk hole in the wall! Sweet Dewey’s which opened maybe a month ago- is something like 1,000 sq. feet- seats maybe 30 combined inside tables/handful of outside tables! This joint is so-small, that the layout doesn’t even allow for a soda dispenser…but don’t worry- its got plenty of canned sodas and bottled beers to wash down its reasonably priced food.
Sweet Dewey’s is the brainchild of Chef Dwayne Hooper and shopping center Landlord- Brian Bernstein…who correctly figured that Boca Raton needed a dynamite bbq joint-featuring the culinary skills of Hooper who previously tended shop at Saint Andrews Country Club, Polo Country Club and La Vielle Maison all in Boca Raton.
Trust Jeff Eats when I tell you that Sweet Dewey’s is a home run! Guaranteed-when word starts to spread about how good this joint’s food is- the eat-in/take-out lines are gonna be huge!
Rather then beating around the bush…the turkey chili, beef brisket, St. Louis bbq ribs, bbq chicken, cedar plank salmon, mac & cheese, corn bread, pecan pie absolutely blew Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats away!
You regular Jeff Eats’ readers know (or should know) that I’m not really a big-fan of smoked bbq stuff…that said, this guy Chef Dewey (in my book)- has this smoking thing down to a fine science- for sure the stuff is smoked, but “perfectly” done- if that makes sense to you! Every smoked item, was done just right-and not one thing came even close to being too smokey tasting.
Look! I could tell you as to- how the meat literally fell off the bbq bones…or that the homemade hot pecan pie was off the chart…or that the turkey chili had a great little kick to it…or that Sweet Dewey’s makes its own bbq sauce/has 5 flavors/and that Dewey’s Original BBQ Sauce kills, but I won’t… BUT- I will tell you, that Sweet Dewey’s is playing at a whole ‘nother level than 96.7% of the bbq joints that you probably- frequent down here in South Florida.
If you want to eat dynamite top quality bbq…you can check Sweet Dewey’s BBQ menu/prices/other info at sweetdeweysbbq.com.
The joint is open 7 days a week 11:30am-9pm…and if you wear anything but your tee shirt/shorts/flip flop ensemble, you’re gonna be over-dressed!
