First told you guys about fast food/order-pickup at counter/”roast beef” Beefy King on April 10, 2012. The truth be told, Jeff Eats hadn’t been back since- that is until yesterday’s lunch with Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats splitting two roast beef sandwiches, a pastrami/roast beef combo sandwich and way too many tater tots!

Real simple tale to tell you guys, Beefy King which has been around for something like 48 years serves absolutely dynamite food in a no frills, no drama setting. If you live, work, go to school or just happen to be in the area, the joint is an absolute must try- that’s assuming of course, that you’re into off the chart delicious stuff like- roast beef, pastrami, corned beef and turkey sandwiches!

Was up in Orlando the other day…and had a fast food lunch at Beefy King. Like most of you, I’d never heard of this joint–but its been around since 1968…as a point of reference, in 1968 I was a sophmore at Ithaca College, weighed 162 lbs and wore a size 32 waist pants. Anyway…stepping inside was like going back in time. Not 100% sure on this, but my money says that this joint hasn’t been remodled since it first opened. Anyway…two “townies” who were on line, told me that the joint was famous for its steamed roast beef, pulled pork and tater tots. So, when it came my time to order, Jeff Eats ordered pastrami-corned beef sandwiches and onion rings—just kidding.

Beefy King does…roast beef/ham & cheese/turkey/pastrami/corned beef/bbq pork/bbq beef Kaiser roll sandwiches, handful of salads, handful of sides, milkshakes.

For the record, the roast beef/pulled pork sandwiches were amazingly delicious…same for the crispy tater-tots.

Now nothing for nothing, in deciding if you are going to trust my taste buds on this “outing”—keep in mind, that I am and have always been a huge Arby’s fan.

I loved the food. I loved the nostalgic signage/decor.

You can check menu/prices at www.beefyking.com.

Defintely strange for a free standing fast food joint…it’s only open Monday-Friday 10am-3pm, Friday 11am-3pm, closed on Sunday.

Burger King’s Impossible Whopper!

Posted on August 22nd, 2019 · American Fast Food · 8 Comments »

* Burger King’s Impossible Whopper!

The Impossible Whopper went nationwide at all 7,200 Burger King locations in the US on August 8, 2019.

Like regular Whoppers, the Impossible Whopper contains all the classic fixings like tomatoes, crisp lettuce, pickles, and onion, but instead of a flame-grilled beef patty, the Impossible Whopper boasts a flame-grilled veggie patty, which is made with soy protein, potato protein, coconut oil, sunflower oil, and heme.

Personally, I wouldn’t go near this burger with a 10 foot pole…

Anyway, if you are so inclined to give this delicious😛sounding burger a shot- you can check burgerking.com for locations/info.

Is that a sparkle in his eye or is he just confused? With his innocence and friendly demeanor, Mitch quickly engages the audience and then catches them off guard with a mixture of mischievous dialog and off color comments. While laughing at observations only Mitch can get away with, we are left wondering if he truly understands what he just said. We never really know.

Mitch has been showcasing his talent to rave reviews for 30 years now. His resume, too extensive to list in it’s entirety includes 2 Comedy Central specials (one of which was voted #6 all time by viewers) and 3 best selling CD’s. He has appeared on almost every Late Night Comedy Show and in 2006 he has taken home honors as the Best Comedian at the HBO Aspen Comedy Festival. In 2018 he is filming his next 1 hour special for release in early 2019 and he is currently co-host of the new PUNCH-lines Podcast (Punchlinespodcast.com) which studies and dissects the psychology and similarities of stand up comedy and mixed martial arts at the same time. He also has a son and his wife is very hot.

If you do…

Blues Brothers Soul Band

Saturday, August 24, 2019 (8pm)
Seminole Casino Coconut Creek (Nectar)
5550 NW 40th Street
Coconut Creek, Florida 33073
Info: 954-977-6700

—-
Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats have seen the Blues Brothers Soul Band a number of times and I’m telling you guys that- the band puts on an absolutely terrific show. In addition to covering all of The Blues Brothers’ movie-music the band also- plays loads of other 50s and 60s hit records.

Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and two other couples got plans to catch the band at the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek-starting at 8pm…our “plan” also includes eating dinner before the show- around 6pm at Barone’s La Pizzeria (which is literally 3-minutes away from the casino) before heading over to see the Blues Brothers Soul Band in action!

Posted on 6/28/10

***** Barone’s La Pizzeria, 5632 West Sample Road, Margate, Florida 33073 (954) 968-4396.

La Pizzeria is a “Mom & Pop—red sauce” pizza joint located in Margate.
You can check its menu/prices at www.lapizzeriamargate.com.

You know and I know that “Mom & Pop” pizza joints are a dime a dozen-down here in old South Florida. I think the way it works…the strip center landlord first signs Publix, then Walgreens, then a Chinese takeout, then a pizza joint, then a dry cleaners…then a —-(you fill in the blanks)….then half of the businesses go bust…

Anyway, the other evening, I gave Barone’s La Pizzeria a shot- and I gotta tell you, the food is real-good. My party did pizza, shrimp scampi, veal parmigiana, meat lasagna, chicken & shrimp alfredo, penne ala vodka—and like I just said, real good.

As you know– over the past few years, old Jeff Eats has eaten-in his fair share of “mom & pop” Italian joints…and, to be perfectly honest with you, most of them barely get the job done, but then again, that’s the nature of the beast…”cheap is cheap”….”you get what you pay for”…”one if by land, 2 if by sea.” Trust me on this one, Barone’s La Pizzeria is REAL GOOD…if you live or work near the joint, I highly recommend that you give it a try.

By the way, Barone’s La Pizzeria is right across Sample Road from the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek and is maybe a 3-minute drive (west) from the Festival Flea Market on Sample Road.

Barone’s La Pizzeria is open Sunday-Thursday 11am-10pm and Friday-Saturday 11am-11pm
