The Boca Raton location on Saturday nights can get quite busy, but there are plenty of seating options: booths, tables and outdoor accommodations including a bar and patio chairs with tables. The lamps are dimmed, but not so much that you won’t be able to read your menu, and the décor is interesting, with signed memorabilia framing the walls and stained glass lamps. There are also small TV screens on each booth.
OUR FAVORITE FOOD/PRICE
For appetizers, we decided on the red top hummus dip ($8.95), which comes with pita bread and freshly sliced 1450 N. Federal Highway, Boca Raton 561-750-2120. Hours: Open 24 hours daily. Note: Post writers will anonymously visit a restaurant in your neighborhood each week in search of the best menu item. They’ll tell you about that item and why they liked it in this spot each week. cucumbers. The portion is generous enough to share bet ween t wo people. As our entrees, we went with the garden burger ($9.95), made with carrot, onion, string beans and soy, served wi t h a s i d e o f s e a s o n e d fries. We also sampled the bacon cheeseburger ($12.95) with a side of sweet potato fries. Although there was hardly room for dessert, we couldn’t bring ourselves to pass on the chance to try the chocolate cheesecake ($7.95), which was rich and creamy enough to make us swoon.
REASON TO GO
The burgers and fries are succulent enough to make us want to go back for more, but there are many other enticing items on the menu that we would love to try, such as the roasted veggie penne pasta and the shepherd’s pie.
The server took our order promptly, and there was hardly a wait for it to be brought to our table. She was also very knowledgeable about the specials and dishes she thought we might like.
It can get noisy in the evening, but we didn’t find it overwhelming. Conversation was definitely possible, although later when the piano player entertains diners, that may change a bit.
There is an ample kid’s menu and choice of seating to please families with children and younger diners.
