Rappy’s & Junior’s Restaurant (Boca Raton)

* Rappy’s & Junior’s Restaurant.

A recent e-mail received by Jeff Eats…


Long time reader and long time Boca Raton resident.

Just curious as to why you haven’t yet reviewed either Rappy’s or Junior’s Restaurant both New York Kosher Style Delis which recently opened in Boca Raton?

Both joints seem absolutely perfect for Jeff Eats’ thoughts.

Thanks for the great blog site,




Both Rappy’s and Junior’s are on Jeff Eats’ radar- eventually I’ll get to them!

To be perfectly honest with you, both Rappy’s and Junior’s had “friends & family” and other pre-opening “tasting” events- none of which Jeff Eats was invited to attend!

Trust me when I tell you, I really don’t need Rappy’s or for that matter Junior’s free-offerings to “eat”- that said, I do consider it a bit of an insult- to Jeff Eats (and all of you-readers) for us not to have had the opportunity to “get” the story at first-light! By the way, Jeff Eats has “looked” at both restaurants and I gotta tell you, I was very impressed with Rappy’s build-out/location- an absolutely gorgeous store…as for Junior’s, sorry to say it looks-like your “run of the mill” Florida bagel joint/lousy location (with a separate liquor bar thrown in for good measure)!

Like I said 2-seconds ago, Jeff Eats will eventually get to both Rappy’s and Junior’s- and good or bad “tell” Jeff Eats’ readers the real Skinny!

Thanks for reading…

    I attended LIU which is right across Flatbush Ave from the original Junior’s. Must have eaten there over 100 times.
    Ate in Boca store yesterday and the food doesn’t even come close to the Brooklyn’s store.

  2. Jean Wein says...

    How could 2 such experienced restaurant operators come up with 2 mediocre restaurants is beyond me!

  3. Peter David says...

    Ate in Junior’s last night and I must say as a born and bred New Yorker some of the worse overpriced shit I’ve ever been served.

  4. Michael E says...

    My wife and I ate in Rappy’s last night and I really enjoyed my philly cheese steak sandwich and she enjoyed her bacon cheeseburger. The ff we split were also delicious.

  5. Mary R says...

    The turkey sandwich was small, dry and overpriced.

  6. Tali Jacobson says...

    Maybe for breakfast but that’s about it. Overpriced just average food.

  7. Ruth S says...

    Rappy’s now has a cheaper menu with the same crappy food.

  8. Jeff,
    The reason why Rappy’s didn’t invite you to any pre-opening events was because they know that you are the only straight shooting food blogger/reviewer out there. You call things for what they are. The rest of these food bloggers/reviewers are in this blogging business for the free meals. They never say anything bad about the guy who gave them the free meal.
    Last night my wife and I ate at Rappy’s. What a freaking disaster. Tasteless chicken soup, bland overpriced tasteless corned beef and pastrami sandwiches, delivered to the table cold french fries. Waiter who was clueless and a manager who thinks that an arrogant smirk goes unnoticed. If Rappy’s wasn”t in such a good location, it would have closed-up by now.

    Great locations. That’s about it for both Junior’s and Rappy’s. Ben’s and, Zinger’s run circles around both joints when it comes to food.

  11. Abe Resnick says...

    I can’t believe that either one of these joints is still in business. Overpriced crap.

  12. Bug eye says...

    Did you see what this joint is doing?Rappy’s shit house.
    There saying they have a Passover dinner for 29.95 a person, minimum 10people.
    Go to Ben’s and get real kosher food for less money and the quilts is about 74 times better.
    Made on premises.
    And if don’t need kosher go to Fresh Market and get the same thing for about $16. per person made there.

  13. Danny T says...

    Not sure if anyone else has used this one for both Junior’s and Rappy’s but here goes

    What’s the difference between Rappy’s and Junior’s and the Titanic?

    The Titanic had a band.

  14. Denise G says...

    Had a Turkey Reuben and it wasn’t good. Rappy’s should be ashamed of itself.

  15. Jeff,
    Yesterday I heard that a new partner was now involved with Rappy’s and he has been telling customers to look for big menu changes as well as price changes. According to what I heard, he said that more diversified deli foods were being added.

  16. Ellen G says...

    Jeff, Lance who was running Brighton Beach Bagel is now running Rappy’s. We’ll see if he can save this Titanic from sinking.

        Another one bites the dust.

        • Tali Jacobson says...

          Rappy’s sucked.
          Crap food, expensive and waitstaff of incompetents.

          It didn’t even last 6 months.

          • Marshall Garner says...

            Actually the joint didn’t even last 4 months.
            That’s what happens when you serve overpriced shit and have morons running the restaurant.

  17. Jim C says...

    This guy Rapoport gets investors so he has no risk.
    Another loser for this clown.

  18. I can’t believe that it took this long for this joint to close up.
    Other than being a great looking joint in a great location Rappy’s had absolutely nothing going for it.
    You can’t charge big money for lousy food and service.
    I at there about a month ago and couldn’t believe how bad it was.
    Well, we’ll see if with a new name and a new guy running the joint it can be turned around.

  19. Jake V says...

    Lance did a good job setting up Brighton Beach Bagel. Maybe he can turn this Rappy’s abortion around.
    A new name, a new menu, better food, lower prices, better staff may work, but that’s what needs to be done to this mess.

  20. Goldie W says...

    What a fiasco Rappy’s was. From Day One anyone with any sense knew that the food sucked and was overpriced.

  21. Bug eye says...

    Rappy’s the worst shit is got a new guy!
    He does not no shit from shine Ola!
    Go over to Brighton nothing!
    Acts like he knows.
    Rapoport is so full of bull shit, he closed 3 places in the last year, it’s not his money.
    Bad people look them up. In another 4 months the place will be something else.

  22. Harold Bagelman says...

    The landlord knew Rappy’s was failing over 2 months ago. They were trying to sell Rappy’s but no takers. So new name and operator for Rappy’s we’ll see if the ship can be turned around.

  23. Marvin G says...

    I guess you didnt get a chance to try Rappy’s. Trust me, the food sucked.
    By the way, Junior’s is not much better, strictly for tourists.

  24. Bug eye says...

    Rappy’s had a general mgr. by the name of Darin.
    After helping to screw the place up and referring to Jews as pieces of shit he is back at Henry’s. On Jog.
    Rapoport covers him up I wonder why?

  25. Sammy G says...

    Ate there last night. Food not too good. Very overpriced.

  26. Stu G says...

    Rappy’s is a loser.
    Just read about new guys coming in.
    waiting to see if he can turn this sinking ship around.

  27. Bug eye says...

    Was at Fresh Market walk by Rappy’s.
    People out side with kids eating hot dogs.
    HOT DOGS! With milk shakes.
    Wow is that great?
    This is really a great concept HOT DOGS!
    Better then that MILK SHAKES!
    There going set the world on fire.
    Dumb ass!
