A recent e-mail received by Jeff Eats.

Hey Jeff,

My husband and I recently moved to Boca from Philadelphia.

We have eaten in the Too Jays located by Boca Town Center several times and love its food.

I recently came across your Too Jays’ April 28, 2009 review and couldn’t disagree more.

Just curious, have you changed your opinion during the past 6 years?

Anna G:

The answer to your question is NOPE!

Jeff Eats has eaten in TooJay’s a number of times since that April 28, 2009 “story” first appeared- and I haven’t changed my opinion one iota!

Just so you know, “food reviewing” is nothing but a big game- what I like, you may hate and vice versa. Trust me, there is no right or wrong in this game.

If you like TooJay’s, I got no problem. That said, may I humbly suggest that you try “some” of the other New York Kosher Style Delis/Kosher Delis “mentioned” by Jeff Eats and see if just- maybe I’m onto something- when I tell you that TooJay’s food is nothing great, but nothing too terrible either!

Jeff Eats’ April 28, 2009 “story” is printed- down below…

Thanks for reading…

***** TooJay’s Original Gourmet Deli, 3013 Yamato Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33496, (561) 997-9911.

TooJay’s is a “New York Style” deli…which has 27 locations in Florida. If you check its website in addition to menu/prices you will find a listing of locations.

Just so we are straight…TooJay’s is not a top-notch deli in the same vein as joints like Pastrami Queen, Ben’s Kosher Deli or Pomperdale Deli. Simply put, TooJay’s serves decent enough food at very reasonable prices. Nothing great, but nothing terrible.

Over the past 16 years, I must have eaten in/taken-out from a TooJay’s something like 25-30 times…let’s just say, that convenience more than anything else was the “reason why”…as there are 3- locations all within 5 minutes of my home.

Let’s sum this one up…NY style deli, loads of appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches, meat/chicken/fish entrees and desserts…decent food…reasonable prices. When I “think” TooJay’s I think white bread…not rye bread.

TooJay’s is open 7 days a week for breakfast-lunch-dinner.

    Jeff, right on point on this one, Mt\y preference is Ben’s . The TooJays is near my office and all I’ll order there is the dill chicken salad. For the comfort deli foods, Corned Beef, Pastrami, Brisket, Tongue, Matzo Ball Soup, Mushroom Barley Soup, the ones you mention are a league above TooJay’s
