The Griddle Restaurant (Boca Raton)
***** The Griddle Restaurant, 475 Northeast Spanish River Boulevard, Boca Raton, Florida 33431, (5610 395-4929.
Got a good “mom & pop” diner for you guys…The Griddle Restaurant in Boca Raton.
Absolutely- positively nothing fancy-going on there…counter/table/booth seating.
Real simple menu- breakfast stuff, burgers, sandwiches, salads, entrees, desserts.
Like most of its South Florida diner-buddies, The Griddle doesn’t do dinner…the joint is open Monday-Friday 7am-3pm, Saturday-Sunday 7am-2pm.
By the way, in one form or another (it was formerly in another location)- The Griddle and its flat-top grill have been around since 1945…so I’m thinking, that just maybe- it’s doing something right! That said, I will tell you, that its “western décor” looks kinda strange to this Brooklyn Boy’s eyes- can’t ever remember seeing a bull or cow or a sheep walking down Flatbush Avenue…now I do remember horses on Ocean Parkway-anyway, I’m more into stainless steel/chrome!
Gourmet food (what exactly makes something gourmet?) nope!- just good solid diner food. This is the kinda joint where you go for big hearty breakfasts, loads of coffee, French fries soaked in ketchup and flat-top grilled cheeseburgers.
Just so you know, over the past 10 years-or so, Jeff Eats must have eaten breakfast/lunch in The Griddle Restaurant something like 20 times…the latest outing was yesterday- western omelet, pancakes, Belgian waffle-and as usual- everything was right on the money!
If you’re a “diner-fan”- you’ll like this joint…
