This hole in the wall, order at/pickup at the counter takeout pizza joint- makes an absolutely delicious thin crisp sweet sauce NY slice! The joint’s subs, salads and entrees are also real good.

There’s an old Chinese or maybe it’s an old Japanese-saying…”out of sight out of mind.”
Way back on August 26, 2009- Jeff Eats told you guys about Dean Anthony’s Express-a terrific red sauce Italian “takeout” joint that had just opened in Boca Raton. Long story short, ultra-crappy strip center location -literally made Jeff Eats forget all about the joint (which just happens to be 6 minutes from my home)…that is, until this past Monday when Mrs. Jeff Eats got a Dean Anthony’s Express flyer “advertising” all kinds of- specials in the mail…the result-the ordered 18″ $9.99 cheese pizza, chicken parmigiana sub/philly cheese steak sub/meatball parmigiana sub/sausage-peppers-onion sub ($6.50 each) put Dean Anthony’s Express back on the Eats’ radar.
Real simple…the food was absolute dynamite.
Dean Anthony’s Express is open Monday-Saturday 11am-8:30pm, closed on Sunday.
The original 8/26/2009 “review” is reprinted below.
Dean Anthony’s Express
August 26, 2009
The folks in Boca Raton just-lucked out…let me explain.
Dean Anthony’s is a “mom & pop” red sauce Italian joint which currently has 1 full- restaurant in Wellington and 1 full-restaurant in Boynton Beach. Two days ago…in a real-small Boca Raton strip center a Dean Anthony’s Express opened… which if you forget about a few window-counter seats, is a takeout-only joint.
Over the years, I must have eaten in the Dean Anthony’s restaurants at least 10 times…I rank these joints right up there with the “best” in the mom & pop South Florida Italian category. By the way, before the Jeff Eats’ website crashed a few years ago, there was a very favorable review on the full-restaurants. On my to do list, is a revisit for an updated “opinion”…
Last night, I tried Dean Anthony’s Express…the menu is loaded with appetizers, salads, pastas, sandwiches, chicken wings (something like 12 different sauces), entrees, pizzas… I did a plain pizza, penne alla vodka, chicken parmigiana, greek salad, garlic rolls, cheese calzone, chicken wings (honey garlic), meatballs-spaghetti…everything I “sampled” was real-good. Gourmet food? Now, let’s not play dopey here! This is a takeout red- sauce -joint, but I am telling you, that give or take a handful of restaurants, this Dean Anthony’s Express is as good as neighborhood takeout gets. One thing that I gotta single out here for special treatment, the pizza…plain old slice with sauce/cheese—one of the best slices I have had down here in South Florida…let’s call it a real NY slice.
As for prices…strictly neighborhood prices. 10 wings $7.99–Greek salad (enough for 2) $9.99–a large pizza goes for $13.99. You definitely won’t go broke ordering from this joint.
You folks in Boca Raton really lucked out…I am telling you, that the next time you want takeout, you want to give Dean Anthony’s a try.
The joint is open Monday-Sarurday 11am-9pm and Sunday 3pm-9pm.
