After finding out from Gary at the last minute that I was alone for lunch yesterday, I got in my car and headed over to Big City Pizza in Boca Raton, off Yamato Road. We will get to the actual review of the pizza later on but for now, I want to focus on the 2 excellent features Big City Pizza has going for itself. It is hard to say anything bad about a place that has these positive things.
- They actually use the words GARLIC KNOTS on their menu! This is quite comforting for me since that is what they are. Most of the dumber places around this state refer to them as Garlic Rolls.
- You might find this shocking, but this place actually let me order my pizza, and get this….bring it back to the table myself without having to have some waiter/waitress carry it the 4 steps for me!
Now back to the pizza!
I ordered 1 Sicilian slice and one Regular slice. Both came out nice and hot. The Regular slice was pretty big and was crispy on the bottom, but I just wasn’t into it. I think it was the sauce. The sauce just didn’t seem to be perfect. On the other hand the Sicilian was wonderful. I am not sure if it is consistently this good, but I wish I had ordered 2 Sicilian slices instead of the regular one. The cheese/sauce ratio was perfect, and each bite tasted delicious. Originally I thought I had trained myself to want to like this place since they had Garlic Knots and no servers + the guy behind the counter was pretty cool, but this pizza was good. Now, if it is consistently good is another story. Obviously I will be going back to do a spot check, but for now I feel comfortable saying this was one of the better Sicilians I have personally had down here. Let’s hope they do not disappoint me like Sal’s or Rotelli in Boca Raton. I give Big City Pizza in Boca Raton 5 out of 8 slices for the Sicilian.
