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.

***** Charm City Burger Company, 1136 East Hillsboro Boulevard, Deerfield Beach, Florida 33441, (954) 531-0300.

Last night Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats ate at fast-food burger joint, Charm City in Deerfield Beach.

Nothing for nothing, we have been eating at this- order at/pickup at the counter joint since April 17, 2008-so last night’s terrific- bacon cheeseburger, turkey burger, French fries, onion rings came as no “surprise”…

Seeing all of those New York, New Jersey. Ontario license plates on the road,

Just thought I’d mention Charm City to you guys- who have yet to eat there…this joint is an absolute winner! Trust Jeff Eats when I tell you that Charm City runs circles and I do mean circles around fast food burger players like Five Guys and BurgerFi -now, there is absolutely nothing wrong with either of them (Jeff Eats is a real steady customer of both chains), but they are cookie cutter mold type operations, like-you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all!…Charm City is a one-shot-deal, there is only one…so on and so forth.

Great food. Super reasonable prices. Cool vibe!

Printed down below is Jeff Eats’ “review” from October 20, 2009.

***** Charm City Burger Company, 1136 East Hillsboro Boulevard, Deerfield Beach, Florida 33441, (954) 531-0300.

Back on April 17, 2008 I did a review on a “burger” joint named Charm City Burger Company. If you check that review, I absolutely loved the food. At that time, the joint had only been open for something like 3-months…and I questioned its “longevity” based on its piss-poor location. To make a long story short…the joint is still around– has new owners– has a cult-like following—and the food is absolutely DELICIOUS.

At this stage of this re-review check www.charmcityburgers.com for menu/prices.

All I can tell you, is that I was in the joint last week…delicious bacon cheeseburger, terrific french fries, great sweet potato fries, incredible chicken wings. sensational grilled chicken and soft shell crab rolls.

Order/pickup at the counter. Absolutely nothing fancy here. Just…outstanding food.

Charm City is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.

Posted on April 17th, 2008

***** Charm City Burger Company, 1136 East Hillsboro Boulevard, Deerfield Beach, Florida 33441 (954) 421-3925.

Charm City is a fast-food burger joint. It has been in business for about 3 months and looks like a charming cross between a 1950’s fast-food restaurant and a Greenwich Village coffeehouse. I ate dinner last night and the burger-fries were delicious as was the crabcake on a bun.

Charm City has 2 BIG PROBLEMS…its signage stinks. If you aren’t looking for the joint—you are not finding the joint. In addition, its location on a City Street in Deerfield Beach is absolutely horrendous.

If Charm City was in South Beach, it would be a goldmine. Location, location, location.

If you live in Deerfield Beach or are in the area, Charm City is a good place for a fast-food lunch.

***** Buca di Beppo Italian Restaurant, 801 North Congress Avenue, Wellington, Florida 33426, (561) 737-2393.

Buca di Beppo is a national Southern Italian restaurant chain…for our purposes, joints in Boynton Beach, Brandon, Coral Springs, Davie, Fort Myers, Jacksonville, Maitland, Naples, Orlando, Tallahassee, Wellington. You can check menu/prices/locations/info at bucadibeppo.com.

Last night Jeff Eats ate dinner at the Buca di Beppo in Wellington. Just so you know, Wellington wasn’t my “maiden Buca di Beppo voyage”–first time for Wellington, but over the past 16 years Jeff Eats has eaten in a number of Buca’s joints-here in Florida and elsewhere. Can’t really explain, why Buca di Beppo hadn’t garnered a Jeff Eats’ critique-prior to-today. If I figure it out, I’ll let you guys knRight about now some of you guys are throwing a hissy fit–Hey Jeff, it’s a chain, why would you eat there? What’s wrong with you? Did you lose your mind?

First things first.

For you guys who don’t “know” Buca di Beppo…locations are decorated literally with hundreds of pictures. The portions are either family style or individual size. Full bar -area.

Now onto the meal…just so you know, there were eight- in the Jeff Eats’ party-fried calamari, chopped antipasto salad, chicken parmigiana, veal marsala, penne alla vodka, ravioli with meat sauce, lasagna, baked rigatoni, tiramisu, cheesecake.

Now you do what you want with this. The food was delicious, the service was solid-friendly and all 8-of us really-really enjoyed ourselves.

Nothing for nothing, I know that there are a bunch of you-out there-who really “believe” that chain food can’t be any good. Well I got news for you, from this boy’s perch, Buca di Beppo proves your theory DEAD WRONG! No fooling here- I found the food as good if not better than most of the “mom & pop” Florida red sauce joints that have run my American Express card. For sure, there are loads of “mom & pops” that would wipe the floor with Buca di Beppo but trust me, most of them aren’t as good. On the price front, Buca di Beppo is in the same league as the “mom & poppers” -same goes for portion size and service.

A few seconds ago I gave you Buca’s website. When you check the site you’ll find a current “deal” called-“Feed four for $40.”–if you are going to try Buca, be smart and print out that coupon. One other thing, this morning Jeff Eats got an email from local.amazon.com offering a coupon for $10 off your next $20 purchase at Buca di Beppo- you may also want to print out that coupon. The way I see “coupons”- better your pocket than their pocket!

Buca di Beppo is open Monday-Thursday 11am-10pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-11pm, Sunday 11am-9pm.

Real short tale to tell you guys, last night Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats, Daughter Jeff Eats, Son Jeff Eats and two of Jeff Eats Son’s buddies did dinner at Gar Sing- and the joint’s food passed Jeff Eats’ Brooklyn Jewish American Chinese circa 1957 Food Taste Test- with flying colors!

Believe me when I tell you guys- this takeout/dine-in (handful of tables) joint’s food was off the chart delicious! No bs- here, Jeff Eats is kinda thinking that Gar Sing could easily compete with NYC Chinatown’s best joints!

Do you guys know what scarily good means? Well, Granger’s Grille in Delray Beach is scarily good.

Real quick story…

Hole in the wall with scarily good American-Style food located at 215 Northeast 6th Avenue, Delray Beach after 23 years was forced to move- because the landlord sold the building it was in. A few months later (January, 2017) the “former” hole in the wall re-opened 3-times larger at 892 Southeast 5th Avenue, Delray Beach serving the same scarily good American-Style food!

All Jeff Eats can tell you guys, is that if you’re into absolutely dynamite burgers/ wings/ bbq ribs/ fried zucchini/ onion rings/ French fries/ tuna salad/ chili/ fried chicken/ onion soup/ meatloaf so-on and so forth, portions that could choke a horse, super reasonable prices and a staff that can’t do enough for you- Granger’s Grille is a must try for you!

You can check menu/info at grangersgrille.com.

Granger’s Grille is open Sunday noon-8pm, Monday-Friday 11:00am-9:30pm.

***** Granger’s Bar & Grill, 215 NE 6th Avenue, Delray Beach Florida (561) 276-7881.

Granger’s is a 38 seat bar-grill located on Federal Highway. The joint has something like 10 seats at the bar and a handful of booths and tables…one waitress-one busgirl-3 in the kitchen and that’s the whole shooting match. By the way, the waitress and busgirl are also the bartenders. The bathrooms are out-houses in the parking lot.

Granger’s food is absolutely great. Appetizers, burgers, salads, main dishes everything is delicious. How that little kitchen bangs out so much delicious food is beyond me, but in the 30-40 times that I have eaten at Granger’s everything was right on the money.

I am telling you, that this little joint is a MUST for you. Wear tee shirt/shorts so you don’t look stupid. The joint is open Monday-Saturday for lunch and dinner. The prices are also dirt cheap and if you are there on a Saturday Night you have to try the brick of meatloaf that is one of this joint’s specialities.

From the outside, Granger’s looks like a D U M P. Try it, you will love it.

* Humor!

In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, ‘Mrs. Jones, do you know me?’ She responded, ‘Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I’ve known you since you were a boy, and frankly, you’ve been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you’re a big shot when you haven’t the brains to realize you’ll never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you.’

The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, ‘Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?’

She again replied, ‘Why yes, I do. I’ve known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He’s lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can’t build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him.’

The defense attorney nearly died.

The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench and, in a very quiet voice, said,

‘If either of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I’ll send you both to the electric chair…!!’
