Illegal Pizza (Lauderhill)

Posted on January 10th, 2020 · Fast Food Italian Lauderhill Pizza · No Comments »

***** Illegal Pizza, 5401 North University Drive, Lauderhill, Florida 33351, (954) 859-1300.

Got a real good pizza joint for you guys to checkout- Illegal Pizza in Lauderhill.

Simple tale to tell…yesterday afternoon- Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats “discovered” Illegal Pizza and I gotta tell you that the joint’s food absolutely killed! Unless you’re a recent “visitor” from Mars you’ve seen the concept before- get on line and counter people build your pizza and salad per your order, table/hi-top window counter seating, pizzas and salads delivered to tables.

Like I said 2 seconds ago, the food absolutely killed…I’m kinda thinking that the combination of super fresh top-notch ingredients and a gas stone oven- and not Jeff Eats or Mrs. Jeff Eats’ “culinary” skills were primarily responsible for the dynamite 11” pizzas and salad that were delivered to our table!

You’ve seen the “concept” before- Illegal Pizza’s execution was 100% right on the money!

For you guys who like more flesh on the review-bone, Illegal Pizza menu has a handful of set pizzas that you can order- same for salads, then you got build your own pizza and salad options- handful of beers, wines and some CBD infused waters.

You guys can check menu/prices/info at illegalpizza.restaurant.

Illegal Pizza is open:

Sunday – Thursday 11am to 10pm
Friday & Saturday 11am to 11pm

***** Applebee’s, 15058 Jog Road, Delray Beach, Florida 33433, (561) 865-8757.

Got a good story for you guys…

Last night Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and another couple ate at the Applebee’s located at 15058 Jog Road, Delray Beach. I’m assuming that you guys know what “an” Applebee’s is…if not, American Style -national chain with a full liquor bar/tvs, tons of reasonably priced appetizers, salads, sandwiches, burgers, wings, entrees, desserts.

Anyway,

Prior to last night, the last time Jeff Eats had eaten in an Applebee’s was September 8, 1998. The reason that I remember that date, I was in an Applebee’s (1720 South Federal Highway, Delray Beach) and watched Mark McGuire hit homerun #62 breaking Roger Maris’ record. We’ll leave McGuire’s steroid story for another day.

Now nothing for nothing, back in 1998 Jeff Eats didn’t exist-it wasn’t until 2006 that I “decided” that you guys needed to know -what, where and how I ate. So other than the-homerun I really don’t remember the “actual” 1998 meal. In addition, for the life of me, I can’t figure out why 1998 was the last time I ate at Applebee’s.

To make a long story short,

Very dear friends, Norman and Lynne swear by this chain. In addition to an apartment in North Miami they have a home in Belmont, North Carolina and an apartment in New Paltz, New York.–over the past 25 years -their numerous road trips have literally had them in Applebee’s all over the place.

Last night the four of us ate in Applebee’s and I gotta tell you- the food, service and reasonable prices blew me away. No fooling here-the house salads, bbq grilled wings, grilled chicken wontons/tacos, cheeseburger sliders, bbq ribs, grilled sirloin steak, french fries, onion rings, mashed potatoes, mozzarella sticks, white brownie/vanilla ice cream, pub pretzels with caramel sauce were all delicious.

Trust Jeff Eats on this one, no ifs ands or buts- last night’s “American Style” meal was one of the best I’ve had in years. To be perfectly honest with you, the food ran circles around most of the stuff served in South Florida’s sports bars–Not to start a pissing match or nothing, but chains like The Cheesecake Factory, Chili’s, Friday’s, J Alexander’s got nothing on Applebee’s.

On service-when we walked in, we were actually greeted by a pleasant- energetic hostess. Sammie our waitress knew the menu-cold making some great recommendations and made sure our glasses were never empty. One other thing, Jeff Eats notices things and I gotta tell you that George (GM) was all over the joint- visiting tables, chatting with customers, helping/bussing tables-doing what a GM is suppose to do, that being staying on top of his restaurant. Trust Jeff Eats on this, I’ve seen many a GM in action (or shall I say inaction!) and this guy was good-real good…The restaurant was real-busy, yet the service/food were all “handled” as they were suppose to be.

On the price front-real reasonable…check www.applebees.com for menu/prices/locations.
I will tell you, that Applebee’s gives you a ton of food for the money. When you’re on Applebee’s website checkout its- 2 eat for $20 or $25 deals.

Like I said 37 seconds ago, Applebee’s is a national chain. This “story” is about the Delray Beach Jog Road restaurant-that said, there are plenty of Florida locations for you to eat at.

Applebee’s is open Sunday-Thursday 11am-10pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-11pm.

In closing, Norman and Lynne you were so right…Jeff Eats should have gotten “back” sooner.

Applebee’s is dynamite!

***** Mellow Mushroom, 25 SE 6th Avenue, Delray Beach, Florida 33483 (561) 330-3040.

Let me get the necessities out of the way…Mellow Mushroom is a very-casual pizza joint located in Delray Beach. Its menu is loaded with appetizers, salads, calzones, subs and pizzas…all at neighborhood pizza joint prices. The joint also has something like 100 beers, if that’s your game! A recent taste-test had me “sampling” a meatball ricotta pizza, greek salad, steak & cheese calzone and chicken parmesean sub. The food at this joint is absolutely dynamite.

Just so you know, Mellow Mushroom is a small-chain with joints in 15 states…there are a handful in Florida. The guys who own this company have a terrific concept…great food combined with a “retro-1960’s-70’s decor”…When I was eating at Mellow Mushroom, I “expected” Scott McKenzie, Grace Slick, John Densmore and H. Rap Brown to come walking in at any moment… Mellow Mushroom’s website www.mellowmushroom.com will provide you with menu/prices and loads of pictures “showing” that decor I just mentioned.

Real Casual. Great Food. Great Ambiance.

I highly recommend that you give Mellow Mushroom a try.

The joint is open Monday-Thursday 11:30am-11pm, Friday-Saturday 11:30am-midnight, Sunday noon-11pm.

Anthology Beatles Party Band (Galuppi’s- Pompano Beach)

* Anthollogy Beatles Party Band.

Just in case you guys were wondering where Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats are going to be this coming Saturday, January 11th, 2020 (7:30pm-11pm)…

FREE ADMISSION!!!

All I can tell you guys is that the- Anthology Beatles Party Band is off the chart good…trust Jeff Eats on this one, you’ve never seen a Beatles tribute band like this one- PARTY!

(Checkout the video)…

Posted on August 10th, 2008
***** Galuppi’s, 1103 N. Federal Highway, Pompano Beach, Florida 33062 (954) 785-0226.

Last night, I had an absolutely terrific time at a joint named Galuppi’s in Pompano Beach. Just so you know, Galuppi’s which calls itself “Galuppi’s Restaurant, Patio Bar & Banquets” is actually located on the public Pompano Beach Golf Course… the view from its out-door patio of the course is absolutely amazing.

Galuppi’s is basically a restaurant/catering facility. There is a small indoor restaurant that has a large sit-at-bar, 4 booths and maybe a half-dozen hi-tops…outside, there is another sit-at-bar and loads of tables…there is also a banquet room attached to the restaurant that can be used for private parties or for restaurant customers. Now, to put this whole layout in perspective…go to Galuppi’s website at www.galuppis.com where you will find actual pictures of what I have been blabbing about, along with menu/prices/and other details.

Last night, Galuppi’s which does lunch and dinner 7 days a week and brunch on Sunday had The Beatles’ tribute band “Anthology” performing from 8pm-midnight. Suffice it to say, this joint was absolutely packed… the restaurant-the banquet room-the outside bar/patio…the band was on a small stage on the patio and I’ll bet you that from 8:30pm-10:30 pm (time I was there) there were at least 500-600 people maybe even more, eating…drinking…dancing. I am telling you, it was an absolutely great “party.” By the way, there was no cover charge or minimum…so for the price of a meal or a drink…or for that matter, just walking in…got you into this “concert.”

Just a quick note, “Anthology” was terrific. They were dressed in replicas of The Beatle’s Shea Stadium army-uniforms and had the requisite Beatle haircuts…they did some great covers of The Beatles’ hits. The group is extremely personable and their interaction with the crowd had the joint really jumping. Their faux British accents which came and went all evening long, added to the fun…and yes, they even have a left-handed bass player. You can check “Anthology” out at www.myspace.com/fab4anthology. I guarantee that based on last night’s action, Galuppi’s owners will have “Anthology” back for another gig in the very near future.

I already gave you this joint’s website…take a look at its menu. There are plenty of appetizers, salads, burgers, sandwiches, entrees and desserts to keep everyone busy…By the way, the prices are very reasonable and last night our waitress Bobbi-Lynn was absolutely terrific despite the fact that the joint was absolutely packed (and I do mean packed). Last night I had babyback ribs, I also sampled the crab-cakes, snapper francaise and steak kabobs. The food is real-decent. Personally I would put it about “1-notch” above the stuff you get in your typical neighborhood sports bar. Just so you know, Galuppi’s also has tons of flat screen tv sets inside and outside…Last night every set was tuned to the Olympic Games, so if “The Beatles” weren’t your game, you could scream for the American swimmers.

One thing that I found interesting…the banquet room has sound-proof glass. Amazingly, while eating in the room, you couldn’t hear the out-door crowd or the band at all.

Galuppi’s is open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week and for brunch on Sunday. According to its website, the joint has all kinds of entertainment and “specials”…so If you want to try Galuppi’s, I would suggest that you ”call ahead” to find out “what’s on tap” (pun intended).

***** Village Tavern, 1880 North Congress Avenue, Boynton Beach, Florida 33426 (561) 853-0281.

Last night I gave Village Tavern an “American Style” joint located in Boynton Beach a shot…there is also a Village Tavern in Pembroke Pines—when you check the joint’s website www.villagetavern.com for menu/prices you will find that there are a handful more in several other states.

Village Tavern seats something close to 300. There is a dining room and separate bar area.

The best way to describe Village Tavern’s decor—think Cheesecake Factory, Houston’s, J. Alexander’s and you got the picture.

Last night, this joint was jammed. I will tell you, that an 8pm reservation for 4–was honored.

Now let’s talk food…the menu is loaded with appetizers, salads, pastas, sandwiches, burgers, pizzas, meat-seafood-chicken entrees. This evening I “did” bbq pulled pork sliders (3-with french fries $8.50), bacon cheeseburger ($9.95), grilled talapia ($16.95), grilled chicken & penne ($14.50), shrimp scampi ($15.95)…I enjoyed all of the food, except the french fries which were on the “limp” side.

Village Tavern is a WINNER. Nice sized portions. Very reasonable prices. Pleasant and competent waitstaff.

Village Tavern is open Monday-Thursday 11am-10pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-11am, Sunday 10am-11pm

Just checked the Kings’ Point box-office (kingspointdelray.com) and there are a handful of tickets still-available for the “Super Talent Showcase” on Tuesday- January 7th, 2020 (7pm)…so if you wanna go, I’m kinda thinking that it’s time to make your move on the ticket front! Just between you guys and Jeff Eats (who has been sworn to secrecy by Jac-Ron Enterprises)- the scheduled entertainment lineup absolutely kills! Priced at $10 for Residents & $13 for Non-Residents- tickets are an absolute steal!

* Jac-Ron Enterprises Presents “Super Talent Showcase”…

Got something terrific for you guys to checkout- Jac-Ron Enterprises Presents “Super Talent Showcase”- Tuesday, January 7th, 2020 -7:00 pm, at Kings Point Delray Beach, 7000 West Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach, Florida 33446. Tickets: kingspointdelray.com, Box Office- (561) 499-3335.

The Skinny:

In a nutshell, Jac-Ron Enterprises (one of Florida’s premier talent-booking agencies) “produces” a show which features-showcases “acts” from all over the country- Jac-Ron is looking to book these acts in various Florida venues in 2020 & 2021. Much of the audience consists of comped- Country Club/ Casino/ Festival/ Residential Community/ Theater/ Resort/ Cruise Ship/ Event- talent buyers. The balance of the audience is made-up of guys like you and me- who get to buy tickets- priced at $10.00 Residents • $13.00 Non-Residents.

Over the years, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats have attended a number of “showcases” and I gotta tell you guys, some of the talent which we got to “preview” blew us away and went on to multi-date bookings here in Florida and in some instances all over the United States. For sure we saw a number of “clunkers” but the winners far outweighed the weaker acts…

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats are gonna be there- we have no idea as to the names of the singers/ dancers/ bands/ impressionists/ comedians/ magicians who are scheduled to appear- all I can tell you- is that Jac-Ron Enterprises books top notch acts. Just to give you the names of some of the showcased acts we’ve seen in the past…The Bronx Wanderers, Rocky & The Rollers, Shadows Of The 60’s, Comedians Tom Cotter/ Jeff Norris/ Fred Rubino, Bobby Brooks Wilson, The Motowners- all of which are currently playing dates all over the United Staes.

Just a taste (The Motowners)…

If you’re into potluck dinners- you’ll love Jac-Ron Enterprises Presents “Super Talent Showcase”…

* Just checked the box-office- kingspointdelray.com and tickets for RESIDENTS just went on sale! Tickets for NON-RESIDENTS go on sale July 1, 2019 at 9am.

One last thought, Jac-Ron Enterprises Presents “Super Talent Showcase” was 100% SOLD OUT in 2019- so if you wanna go, you Residents and Non Residents now know when-what you gotta do in the Ticket Department!
