* National French Fry Day 7/13/17.

Today is National French Fry Day…I know, big deal!

If you check, today all over America- fast food burger joints are running all kinds of french-fry promotions…I know, big deal!

Anyway, BurgerFi (burgerfi.com) one of America’s fastest growing fast-food burger chains and coincidentally one of Jeff Eats’ favorite fast food burger chains-is running this promotion…I know big deal!

Long story short, Happy- National French Fry Day to everyone…and for you guys who have never been to a BurgerFi- put this burger chain on your to-try-list! You can check burgerfi.com for locations/ info.

By the way, Jeff Eats is counting on some of you guys coming up with- French Fry promotions at other Florida restaurants.

***** BurgerFi, 4343 North Ocean Drive, Lauderdale by the Sea 33308, (954) 489-0110.

Walked into this free-standing “fast food” burger joint last Saturday night—and immediately new that I was going to love it. The easiest way to describe BurgerFi–Shake Shack (see 8/1/10 review) meets Five Guys Famous Burgers (see 11/2/06 review) with indoor and outdoor “picnic table seating.”

Let me make this real simple…one of the best fast-food cheeseburgers and hand cut fries that I’ve had in a very long time.

At this stage of the proceedings, check www.burgerfi.com for menu/prices/photos.

I am telling you, if burgers and fries are your game, you are absolutely gonna love this joint.

As a 1949 “baby” I think I know a thing or two about the fast-food-burger industry. Trust me on this, old Jeff Eats has eaten his fair share of burgers and fries.

I think I know exactly what BurgerFi is “trying” to do here…The joint’s decor looks like a roadside fast-food burger joint circa 1950’s/1960’s with some-modern touches…throw in “gourmet” burgers and “upscale” fries-other stuff…and BurgerFi’s got all of the bases covered. It’s cooler looking than Five Guys but cheaper than the “upscale” full service-burger restaurants that are currently America’s latest craze.

Check Burgerfi’s site, there are a handful of pictures which will give you some idea as to what I am yapping about here.

Like I said before, if you like burgers, fries, hot dogs, custard…you’ll love this joint.

BurgerFi is open 7 days a week 11am-1am.

Simple tale to tell you guys, a couple of years ago, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats saw the musical comedy The Addams Family at the Sol Theatre in Boca Raton- and loved every minute of it!

Everyone’s favorite creepy clan The Addams Family hits the stage with a macabre musical that’s so hilarious it’s scary. Gather around the family mansion and watch Morticia and Gomez wrestle with a nightmarish turn of events. Their daughter, the ever-precocious Wednesday, has done the scariest thing imaginable — she’s fallen in love with an average, run-of-the-mill boy. What’s worse, she wants her freaky family to pretend to be “normal” for one night to impress her new boyfriend’s parents. Watch what happens when Pugsley, Grandmama, Uncle Fester and Lurch put their own horrific spin on hospitality. Inspired by Charles Addams’ iconic comic strip and featuring a script written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice (Jersey Boys), this family-friendly production of the Tony-nominated musical lurks into the Boca Black Box.

Granger’s Grille (Delray Beach)

Posted on July 10th, 2017 · American Delray Beach · 16 Comments »

***** Granger’s Grille, 802 Southeast 5th Avenue, Delray Beach, Florida 33483, (561) 276-7881.

Do you guys know what scarily good means? Well, Granger’s Grille in Delray Beach is scarily good.

Real quick story…

Hole in the wall with scarily good American-Style food located at 215 Northeast 6th Avenue, Delray Beach after 23 years was forced to move- because the landlord sold the building it was in. A few months later (January, 2017) the “former” hole in the wall re-opened 3-times larger at 892 Southeast 5th Avenue, Delray Beach serving the same scarily good American-Style food!

All Jeff Eats can tell you guys, is that if you’re into absolutely dynamite burgers/ wings/ bbq ribs/ fried zucchini/ onion rings/ French fries/ tuna salad/ chili/ fried chicken/ onion soup/ meatloaf so-on and so forth, portions that could choke a horse, super reasonable prices and a staff that can’t do enough for you- Granger’s Grille is a must try for you!

You can check menu/info at grangersgrille.com.

Granger’s Grille is open Sunday noon-8pm, Monday-Friday 11:00am-9:30pm.

Let’s call Granger’s “a story that bears repeating”…

Jeff Eats has been eating at Granger’s for years and I gotta tell you, the joint’s food always kills!…great burgers, wings, meatloaf, barbecue ribs, salads, onion rings, soups, French fries, sandwiches- you name it- and this no frills American-Style hole in the wall-makes it just right!

Granger’s Bar & Grill is an absolute must try!

I love this joint! Trust Jeff Eats when I tell you, you will too!

You can check menu/prices at grangersgrille.com.

***** Granger’s Bar & Grill, 215 NE 6th Avenue, Delray Beach Florida (561) 276-7881.

Granger’s is a 38 seat bar-grill located on Federal Highway. The joint has something like 10 seats at the bar and a handful of booths and tables…one waitress-one busgirl-3 in the kitchen and that’s the whole shooting match. By the way, the waitress and busgirl are also the bartenders. The bathrooms are out-houses in the parking lot.

Granger’s food is absolutely great. Appetizers, burgers, salads, main dishes everything is delicious. How that little kitchen bangs out so much delicious food is beyond me, but in the 30-40 times that I have eaten at Granger’s everything was right on the money.

I am telling you, that this little joint is a MUST for you. Wear tee shirt/shorts so you don’t look stupid. The joint is open Monday-Saturday for lunch and dinner. The prices are also dirt cheap and if you are there on a Saturday Night you have to try the brick of meatloaf that is one of this joint’s specialities.

From the outside, Granger’s looks like a D U M P. Try it, you will love it.

Festival Flea Market Mall Coupon (Pompano Beach)

* Festival Flea Market Mall Coupon.

Mrs. Jeff Eats needs to buy some reading glasses!

I printed this coupon out for her and here’s one for you guys.

Such a deal! But you can’t use- Festivalue Dollars in the food court…

Finally, did you ever wonder why they call these joints- flea markets?
___
funtrivia.com
The first theory, and the one most popular on the Internet, proposes that the term is a direct translation of the French Marché aux Puces, a large, outdoor bazaar in Paris. This original market earned its name from the critter-infested goods it was rumored to sell.

The second theory alleges that the term was coined at a time when the slums and alleys of Paris were demolished and replaced by new construction. The dealers in second-hand goods who lived and worked in these old neighborhoods were forced to flee. The merchants’ new gathering place was referred to as the “flee market,” which later became “flea market.”

The final theory associates the term with New York City’s 18th century Fly Market. Apparently, the Dutch name for the market was vlie, which means valley but is pronounced “flea.”

First let me give you this joint’s website…www.bigalssteaks.com.

Big Al’s has 2 South Florida locations. Big Al’s is basically a take-out, but a few outdoor tables are available.

This joint’s name says it all…Big Al’s Steaks—Authentic Philly Steak Sandwiches.

When you bite into one of Big Al’s steak hoagies you’ll swear that you are in South Philadelphia eating at the lengendary Pat’s King Of Steaks or Geno’s Steaks. The sandwiches are incredible.

Big Al’s Coconut Creek location is open 7-days a week from 11am-10pm.

Big Al’s Delray Beach location is open 7 days a week…Sunday-Wednesday 11am-Midnight…Thursday 11am-2am…Friday-Saturday 11am-3am.

Figure that a steak hoagie is going to run you something like 7-8 bucks. Big Al’s also has other types of hoagies, but the game here is STEAK.

Don’t miss this one.

***** Park Avenue BBQ & Grille, 4796 North Congress Avenue, Boynton Beach, Florida 33426, (561) 357-7427.

Park Avenue is a small “local” South Florida bbq chain. I have lost count on how many there are, but 7 or 8 units sounds about right. Over the years I have eaten in 3 of its locations a total of something like 35 times and taken out so much food, that it’s amazing that I haven’t had to have an angioplasty done. Anyway…my last Park Avenue outing was last night (at the Boynton Beach location) and I have to tell you, that the this joint’s baby-back ribs and bbq chicken are absolutely delicious. This joint also makes corn-fritters doused in powder sugar that are terrific.

Do yourself a favor and visit a location in your area. Delicious food. Big portions. Pleasant and efficient waiters/waitresses. All kinds of menu “price specials.” Park Avenue is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. If you wear anything dressier than tee shirt/shorts you will look silly.

By the way, for you guys who actually hung around and read all the stuff- that Jeff Eats wrote about the Mizner Park Amphitheater and Liverpool Live, after the show, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats are gonna eat dinner at the Dubliner Irish Pub which is something like a 15 second walk from the Mizner Park Amphitheater- real good food!

Posted on May 17th, 2009

***** Dubliner Irish Pub, 435 Plaza Real, Boca Raton, Florida 33432 (561) 620-2540.

Personally, I wouldn’t give you 5 cents for most of the Irish “pubs” in South Florida…darkly lit-dark wood-beer joints, with mediocre food, at best.

Dubliner Irish Pub located in Boca Raton’s Mizner Park…is the exception to the rule. For sure, it has the dark wood interior–and dark lighting… but its food is terrific. A recent outing had me “sampling” prime rib sliders, hamburger, shepherd’s pie, french fries and macaroni & cheese…all absolutely delicious. Throw in top-notch djs and bands (Thursday-Saturday) covering the 1960’s-2009, reasonable prices/pleasant waitstaff and an out- door dining patio for “people watching” the Mizner Park crowd…and you got a real good joint.

Dubliner’s menu has all of the “Irish” standards…plus loads of appetizers, salads, burgers, sandwiches and meat/chicken/seafood entrees. It’s got a real nice beer selection and hard stuff.

Dubliner Irish Pub is open 7 days a week 4pm-2am.
