Trust Jeff Eats when I tell you that I know my Grandma Pizzas- and that Vinny’s Grandma Pizza absolutely kills! I also know my “mom & pop” red sauce Italian joints- and I’m telling you guys, Vinny’s Pizza is right-up there with Florida’s best players!

***** Vinny’s Pizza, 6671 West Indiantown Road, Jupiter, Florida 33458, (561) 575-5445.

For our purposes we’re gonna call Vinny’s Pizza an “out of sight out of mind” mom & pop red sauce Italian joint…

Jeff Eats first told you guys about Vinny’s Pizza on November 3, 2010…truth be told, hadn’t been back “until” last night when Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats stopped in for a Grandma Pizza and an obscene amount of Coke and Diet Coke. By the way, I’m kinda thinking the sole reason for the long-absence, the freaking joint is 86 miles round-trip from Jeff Eats’ Boca Raton residence!

Long story short, absolute dynamite Grandma Pizza!

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats loved Vinny’s in 2010 and loved it again in 2016- with all things being equal, the next “love” is gonna be sometime in 2022! Hey, an 86 mile round-trip, ain’t exactly chopped liver either!

All kidding aside, trust Jeff Eats on this one, you gotta try Vinny’s Pizza, it’s that good!

***** Vinny’s Pizza, 6671 West Indiantown Road, Jupiter, Florida 33458, (561) 575-5445.

Got a real good-reasonably priced “mom & pop–red sauce” Italian joint for you…Vinny’s Pizza in Jupiter, Florida.

Vinny’s menu has all of the “expected stuff”…pizzas, pastas, calzones, hot & cold subs, meat/seafood/chicken dishes (dinners–include salad, pasta side, garlic knots).

A recent dinner outing had me doing…large 16” pizza ($12.20), penne alla vodka ($10.50), meat lasagna ($11.25), veal parmigiana ($14.50). Keeping in mind, that joints like Vinny’s aren’t trying to reinvent the wheel—I can, without hesitation tell you that-Vinny’s food was terrific. Definitey one of the best NYC styled pizzas that- I’ve had in a very long time. The pie was thin-crispy-with an amazingly-perfect sweet sauce. As for the penne, lasagna and veal parm—I know joints that get double the price and can’t hold a candle to Vinny’s food.

Vinny’s is a winner. This is NOT and I repeat NOT—some hack joint, just turning out passable food. Do have one huge problem with Vinny’s…it’s 86 miles (round-trip) from my house.

Vinny’s Pizza is open Monday-Thursday 11am-9pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-10pm and Sunday noon-9pm.

Jeff Norris is without question one of the funniest guys out there today.” -Joe Piscopo, Actor/Comedian

Jeff Norris is an energetic whirlwind of comedy. He is a favorite in both Atlantic City and Vegas. He has also most recently partnered with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. Over the years, Jeff has appeared on numerous TV and film roles including HBO’s Boardwalk Empire and OZ, Good Morning America, My Super-Ex Girlfriend, and Not Fade Away.

“Jeff is one of the funniest stand-up comedians I’ve ever seen.” -Craig Carton, WFAN’s Boomer & Carton Show

Jeff is one of the most quick-witted acts working today–hardly pausing for a breath as he tears through his act, keeping the audience alert and in stitches from beginning to end. Jeff has been called a complete pro–one of the few remaining comics that understands the importance of showmanship and presentation.

Jeff works tirelessly in support of many charities and fundraising events. Jeff has helped raise more than $180,000 for the victims of Hurricane Sandy and more than $150,000 for the K9s for Warriors whose mission is to aid those warriors suffering from PTSD. In addition to the multiple groups he supports, Jeff was recently recognized by the NJ State Police for his work in support of the Troopers Assisting Troops for Wounded Warriors (the T.A.T. Program).

Posted on January 19th, 2007

***** Outback Steakhouse, 6030 Southwest 18th Street, Boca Raton, Florida 33433, (561) 338-6283.

Earlier today, I did a “writeup” on Olive Garden which is an Italian-chain with locations all over the United States. If you read my thoughts on Olive Garden, you know that I rated it “pretty good.” Anyway, I “got to thinking” about other chains that dot our South Florida area and decided to tell you about Outback Steak. If you don’t know about this chain (in a nutshell), it is a mid-price steakhouse which has the full “gamut” of other stuff like seafood and pastas. I am sure that sometime during the past 10 years-or-so, you have heard or seen an Outback commercial which has annoying actors with “heavy duty” Australian accents chatting-up the food. Nothing for nothing, but everytime I hear an Outback commercial I think of that (now late) crocodile guy who was always annoying the crap out of some animal on tv.

Anyway, over the years I have eaten in at Outback Steak more than 10 times. If you check, I am sure that you will find an Outback “somewhere” close to your home. Just so you know, those 10 “dinners” were split between the Outbacks in Boca Raton, Coral Springs and Delray Beach.

Outback’s food is not bad. Actually, for the price the steaks, seafood, appetizers, salads etc., are a very good value. The only problem that I have with this joint and IT IS A VERY BIG PROBLEM, is that literally every item on the menu is over-seasoned with SALT. When I eat at this joint, I make it my business, to tell the wait-staff to MAKE SURE THAT MY FOOD IS NOT OVER-SALTED.

If you like SALT…Outback is for you. If you don’t like SALT and are not inclined to tell the wait-staff your “preference”…Outback is not for you.
