***** Old School Philly, 20642 State Road 7, Boca Raton, Florida 33498, (561) 488-9606.

Got an absolutely dynamite Philly Cheesesteak joint for you guys to checkout- Old School Philly in Boca Raton.

Real simple tale to tell- Old School Philly opened something like 3 weeks ago, order at counter/food delivered to- handful of inside tables/2 outside tables, steak & chicken Philly cheesesteaks/ hand cut fresh French fries menu, 3 large flat screen tvs showing sports events, modern stainless steel decor.

Yesterday afternoon- Jeff Eats and 3 old Ithaca College buddies discovered Old School Philly and I gotta tell you guys that all 4 of us rated the joint’s cheesesteaks and fries- absolutely delicious!

Now, you guys and Jeff Eats both know that many “people” are extremly finicky as to what is and what isn’t a top-notch Philly Cheesesteak! With that in mind, I gotta tell you that Brooklyn born and bred Jeff Eats and Ithaca College buddies, Asbury Park born and bred Paul and Allen rated the steak and chicken cheesesteaks we had- off the chart dynamite! Philly born and bred Ithaca College buddy Len the “self proclaimed Philly cheesesteak expert” said and I quote…”Old School Philly’s cheesesteaks were delicious and better than, Pat’s, Geno’s, Woodrow’s, Dalessandro’s, Tony Luke’s and Steve’s- and almost as good as Barry’s, Jim’s and Philip’s cheesesteaks.”

Let me wrap Old School Philly up by saying- this joint is an absolute must try!

Old School Philly is open 7 days a week 11am-7pm.

A recent e-mail received by Jeff Eats.

Jeff,
Long time reader. First time writer.
Just between you and me, where can I find a really good Italian meatball? I’ve been in Florida for 5 years (formerly from Detroit) and really haven’t found a joint that makes ones that are special. My wife and I live in__________, Coconut Creek, but we’ll drive for the right meatball. By the way, we’ve been to tons of joints all over south Florida.
Thanks,
Ronnie G

Ronnie G,

Not exactly sure where you’ve eaten or haven’t eaten- that said, based on your address try (if you haven’t already been there)….Gianni’s Italian Restaurant, 1601 East Atlantic Boulevard, Pompano Beach, Florida 33060 (954) 942-1733. To be perfectly honest with you- you sound kinda picky to me- but what the heck…

Thanks for reading…

I have been stuffing my face at Gianni’s for years. I don’t know how long this Southern Italian Joint has been in business, but my best guess is 20-25 years.

Real simple review…

Gianni’s is an absolutely terrific Italian restaurant. The food is delicious. The service is as friendly and as competent as can be. The prices are no more expensive than your favorite neighborhood “mom & pop” red sauce joint. Just so you know, Giann’s “enormous” garlic rolls are off-the-chart and worth the price of admission alone.

Gianni’s is open for lunch and dinner. If I were you, I would make a reservation, as the joint is always packed in the evenings.

Gianni’s is one of my favorite South Florida Italian Restaurants. Don’t miss this one.

Latest Review: 6/22/18

I absolutely love this joint. Trust me, if Pop ‘n Sons Diner was in Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats’ Boca Raton neighborhood- we would be heavy duty steady customers!

By the way, the joint’s Bacon Cheeseburger With French Fries ($7.99) ain’t no slouch either!

Posted on June 22nd, 2018

***** Pop ‘n Sons Diner, 4812 North Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa, Florida 33614, (813) 875-9005.

Found a real good diner joint for you guys to checkout- Pop ‘n Sons Diner in Tampa.

Real easy tale to tell- free standing building, 24/7 diner, opened in 1975, counter/booth seating.

Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats, Daughter Jeff Eats and Son Jeff Eats “found” Pop ‘n Sons Diner for dinner a couple of weeks ago- and I must-say that the joint didn’t disappoint…Now, if you’re a fancy schmancy kinda- person, the chicken fried steak/ chili/ hamburgers/ meatloaf/ philly cheesesteak/ chocolate cream pie that we ordered may not work for you…Hey! Big mistake!

Let me wrap Pop ‘n Sons Diner up by saying- lots of real good food for cheap money, pleasant service, cool 70’s diner “vibe”- made/makes this joint a winner in Jeff Eats’ book!
