Angelo Elia Pizza Bar Tapas (Fort Lauderdale, Weston, Coral Springs, Delray Beach)

Angelo Elia Pizza Bar Tapas, 16950 Jog Road, Delray Beach, Florida 33446, (561) 381-0037, angeloeliapizza.com.

You guys do know that food-reviews are strictly a subjective call…what I like, you may hate and what I think is hot, you may think is cold!

Keeping the above in mind, last night Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats ate dinner at Angelo Elia Pizza Bar Tapas in Delray Beach. Suffice it to say, MEDIOCRE and that’s being kind! Chicken parmigiana as hard as a hockey puck, linguine pomodoro that was literally tasteless, grilled salmon salty beyond belief and a cheese pizza that was undercooked, soggy and like the linguine-tasteless! On the service front, after the food was delivered, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats never saw the waitress again until she brought our check. For a bit more color- our waters and sodas were never refilled and it only took 3 requests to a bus-boy to get table setups (which for some reason weren’t on the table when we were first seated).

Like- I said a few seconds ago- food reviews are subjective calls…

Too bad this joint isn’t a whole lot closer to Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats’ Boca Raton abode- because if it was, we’d be real-real steady customers!

***** Mama Maria’s Pizzeria, 2085 Tamiami Trail South, Venice, Florida 34293, (941) 408-9226.

Got a real good “mom & pop” Italian red sauce joint for you guys to checkout- Mama Maria’s Pizzeria in Venice.

Real simple tale to tell…yesterday, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats did lunch at Mama Maria’s Pizzeria and I gotta tell you- off the chart delicious stuff! Our order: 1- 10” Cheese Steak sub, 1- slice of cheese pizza, 2- 10” Chicken Bomb subs! Like I just said, off the chart delicious! Now you guys and I both know that this food reviewing “gig” is just a big old subjective call- like what I think is hot, you may think is cold and vice versa- with that in mind, I am telling you that Mama Maria’s Chicken Bomb subs were right up there with the best Chicken Bombs that Jeff Eats and for that matter Mrs. Jeff Eats have had since this blog’s 2006 debut! Like I said, “subjective”- but trust me when I tell you, off the chart delicious! By the way, the cheese pizza was a New York Style thin crisp crust/ sweet sauce slice- it and the Cheese Steak sub like the Chicken Bombs were absolutely delicious!

Let me wrap Mama Maria’s Pizzeria up by saying- if this joint wasn’t 221 miles away from the Eats’ Boca Raton abode- we would definitely be real steady customers.

Mama Maria’s Pizzeria is open Monday-Thursday 11am-9pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-9:30pm

***** Bobby Rubino’s, 2501 North Federal Highway, Pompano Beach, Florida 33064, (954) 781-7550.

Haven’t really got the time or inclination to tell you Bobby Rubino’s story…suffice it to say, Bobby Rubino use to work for Tony Roma’s which was a South Florida bbq ribs/chicken chain, then Bobby Rubino in 1978 opened his own bbq ribs/chicken joint naming it Bobby Rubino’s—over the years Bobby and Tony were huge competitors each with loads of South Florida locations…not sure on Tony Roma’s dimished numbers—but today, there is only one Bobby Rubino’s location left and it’s-in Pompano Beach, Florida.

Now…

For whatever it’s worth, for something like 30 years—old Jeff Eats has been a huge Bobby Rubino’s fan…delicious sweet sauced ribs/chicken, french fries, onion rings, corn—never empty soda glasses.

Real simple…loads of food at really reasonable prices. If your looking for upscale-gourmet-fancy schmancy this joint ain’t for you. Just so we are straight, the last outpost is kinda on the dated 1970’s looking side–so like Jeff Eats said 2 seconds ago, fancy schmancy is a definite no-no here.

Anyway…

If Bobby Rubino’s sounds like something that might interest you, do yourself a GIGANTIC FAVOR and go to its website www.bobbyrubinos.com—you’ll find menu/prices, you’ll also find a bunch of coupons that will allow you to literally eat like a pig for virtually nothing.

In all fairness to you guys, Jeff Eats in recent years had lost “contact” with Bobby Rubino’s—and it was Rubino’s recent advertisement/coupons in the Sun Sentinel that reunited “us.”

To wrap this one up…my favorite coupon:

DINNER FOR 2 -$20 plus 1 beverage purchase.
Includes:
1 appetizer–onion loaf
2 entrees–full rack babyback ribs or rib/chicken combo
2 sides
1 dessert

Bobby Rubino’s is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.

***** Avellino’s Italian Restaurant, 5869 West Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach, Florida 33484, (561) 332-3544.

Got a real good “mom & pop” Italian joint for you guys to check-out…Avellino’s Italian Restaurant in Delray Beach.

Just between you guys and me, I kinda think that I know my “mom & pop” Italian joints- and I’m telling you guys that Avellino’s in Delray Beach is a winner!

Real simple tale to tell…last night Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats “discovered” Avellino’s and its food absolutely killed! Table/booth seating, reasonably priced appetizers/ salads/ hot & cold subs-panini/ salads/ pastas/ brick oven pizzas/ entrees/ other stuff dinner menu, lunch menu, twilight menu, super pleasant service…and yes- the joint’s dinner entrees come with soup or salad/ pasta side/ garlic rolls.

Let me wrap-up Avellino’s Italian Restaurant by telling you guys- that its brick-oven pizza alone was worth the price of admission. Other than for dough, cheese and tomato sauce I-got no idea as to what else (if anything) went into the the final product- All I can say – off the chart delicious!

You guys can check menu/prices/info at avellinosdelray.com.

The joint is open Monday-Saturday 11am-9pm, Sunday noon-9pm.
