Description

Living in Central Boca Raton I was very excited that Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza opened. I went there a lot the first week it opened, not as much the 2nd week, once the 3rd week and then totally forgot about it. I was heading to one of the coal fired places on the eastern side of town, but ran out of time and gave Anthony’s another try. It just wasn’t good. They say the pizza is “well done” but its not. The crust is floppy, the pie does not hold together well, and it is not enjoyable. It is more mushy than chewy. I don’t like the tiny little meatballs they serve, so I ordered pepperoni. There was a very nice amount of it, but it left the pizza too greasy. The best I can say about it was that cold out of the fridge as a leftover it had tasted decent. Maybe because it was firm, not floppy. The best thing about the place is it is nicely decorated and the service is good. It gets 2 of 8 slices which on my scale means I Wouldn’t go back.

    Matt, you and I share similar opinions when it comes to this place and to think all of the Boca-lites have created such buzz about Anthony''s coming to Boca. I recently had lunch there with some friends and after a few bites of mushy pizza with a burnt bottom we decided we would never return either! Can't these guys get it together ?

    I work There ;)… They constantly underpay their staff & the guys that hand you your plates are probably the same ones who just cleaned off 20 tables & probably even took out the huge bags of leaking garbage ALL the way AROUND the other side of the building.
    but besides that, the place is very CLEAN ! believe me !!! The food is great “i have pizza every single day there. sometimes ill have the wings with onions. all the sandwiches are excellent & the cheese cake is not suggested, its very HEAVY cake. if you get what i mean. should have a drink near by if you get that 😉

    Okay. Coal Fired pizza is a whole other animal. You can't judge it next to a regular pie. Anthony's is very good Coal Fired pizza. A lot better than the crap that you get at Coal Mine.
    At least one of you did something right on this site, for a change. You ordered a whole pie rather than just a slice. You can NOT judge a pizza joint based on a crappy slice that has been sitting under a heat lamp for God only knows how long. It just can't be done. Anyone who calls themselves a pizza critic should know this. I won't even get a slice if I am at the mall, starving, and Sbarro's is the only place to eat. We eat a lot of pizza, and we are very critical of it. We know a good pie. You gave Mario the Baker 5 out of 8 slices, and Anthony's only 2? M the B is the absolute worst pizza I have had since I have lived down here. I wouldn't feed it to my dog.
    I disagree with SO much of what you guys say on this site…especially that Craig guy.

    I do agree, that Mario The Baker has gone down the tubes, but when I went there on I think the 2nd night they opened the pizza was not bad at all. Not sure what has happened since, but on the evening I went there, the food was better then Anthony's!

    I prefer slices when trying to review, as it is hard and costly to eat a fresh pie everyplace I go. Not like anyone is funding this, and it is easy to be critical, when you have others who eat the pizza with you. Usually I am alone, and a slice does the trick.

    If you are so passionate I would welcome you to send in some photos and reviews, and I will publish them, but if you are not the expert you think you are, then I understand if you do not want to help our readers find good pizza.

    Agree — how about zero slices. Tasteless, burnt, — never will go back
