Delray Beach - Not Atlantic Avenue!

We're in Delray Beach for our 3rd "Getaway from the Northeast". We're here for 3 weeks. We've eaten at almost every restaurant on Atlantic Avenue at least once. What we'd like to find are those places that the Delray Beach area natives think are good that aren't on Atlantic Avenue. We like just about anything but Indian food. We haven't found a good pizza place - we don't like Pizza Rustica or any coal-fired pizza. We're really looking for those good "neighborhood" places! We have a car, so traveling a 1/2 or so will work too. Looking forward to hearing what the Delray Beach area natives have in store for us!!

Pizza Rustica
6800 SW 57th Ave, South Miami, FL 33143

  1. off Atlantic Ave try Bamboo Fire, if you google it you will get the address and telephone
    #. It's home cooked Caribbean food and it's really something different.

    1. I agree. Highly recommended is Bamboo Fire. Authentic Caribbean. Telephone: 954-907-4174

      1. Henry's on Jog Road between Linton Blvd and Clint Moore is always good. Reservations are suggested. For Italian try Tentazione Ristorante on Congress in Boynton Beach or Rocky's Italian Bistro on 5th Ave just South of Atlantic. If you like Greek, Tasso's on Atlantic just East of Military Trail.

          Henry's is a great suggestion. Addison Shops South

          Casa Mia just along from Henry's is also nice and you might try Way Beyond Bagels in the North location of Addison shops for a snack at lunch or breakfast and sit outside or take over to Morikami across the street and view the lake.

          Sadly (for me) there is no Indian food in Delray.

          The brunch at the Holiday Inn on Sundays in Highland Beach A1A S of Delray is fab, make a reservation sit outside and feast for hours.

            flfoodie - thanks for the Henry's recommendation. We did the Monday special, Fried Chicken, which we both enjoyed. We also tried the Henry's salad, which we didn't. I think we'll be back there before we head back north in a couple of weeks.

          2. Bamboo Fire: yummy, highly recommended
            Hurricane Alley: good burgers, a local place, oysters are quite yummy
            Joy Noodles WPB: great noodle place
            Guilty pleasure: Tacos al Carbon truck, SE corner of Lake Worth & Military
            Grandlake Chinese for decent dim sum & bettre-than-average authentic Chinese (also Singing Bamboo)
            Chicago Joe's for great Chi-style hot dogs (v close to Hurricane Alley)
            I love Maoz Falafel in the Glades Mall...

            Whatever you eat, enjoy!

              BAFU - where is Grandlake Chinese?

              1. re: RAGHOUND

                Grandlakes is awesome. It's west of the turnpike about a mile on Okeechobee.
