Description

augyspizza.jpgAlways eager to try new places I was excited when the Pizza Expert invited
me to Augy’s Pizza 1501 Northwest 2nd Avenue, Boca Raton, FL One Block North of Glades Road (561) 368-1330.  We weren’t originally planning on going there, but it was late and their pizza buffet was over (please see Oct 17
2008 post for more info as to why).
We walked in and I was overwhelmed by how dated the place looked.  And I can eat at any whole in the wall, but this was something special.  To say they
need to redecorate is to imply that it was once decorated.  It was like that
’70s show.  Worse was the salad bar and hot buffet.  I have never seen such
a nasty looking bucket of food in my life.  I wanted to turn around and get
as far away as possible.  What was the Pizza Expert thinking?  Where had he
taken me?

But we weren’t there for the décor, salad bar or chaffing dishes of hot food.  We were there for the pizza.  A large, fresh,  hot Sicilian pie.  And it was delicious!!!  Although it was Sicilian style, it was not very thick. The crust was light and airy!  More important, it was crispy and had a wonderful char in the corners and edges.  Truly delicious.  I am not one to ever complain about too much sauce, but that was a problem with this pie. All the sauce was in the middle and some slices were drenched.  But the ones that weren’t had the most wonderful combination of crust, cheese and hint of sauce.

I also want to give a shout out to the staff.  Although rough around the edges, they were very nice, attentive and friendly.  They made us feel at home, which is saying more than most places.  I would definitely go back, but I would still avoid the buffet.  As we said last year, ONLY EAT THEIR PIZZA WHEN HOT.  And try the Sicilian.  You will find a 6 of 8 slice experience.

    Hey, watch about the decor. I helped the owners pick the tile floor out about 20 years ago when Augy's moved from their former Pizza Board location. This place rules! I just wish they did not charge so much for their pitchers of beer. It used to be cheap.

    Who cares about the decor. I've lived in Boca for 5 years and frequent this place especially for their pizza. Furthermore, they are always busy day or night. So, thats a statement of it's own in regards to their food.

    Matt My whole family love Augy’s. We have been going there for about 30 years. We really love the so called Sicilian Pizza. Most of all The only reason I eat that pizza is for all the sauce or gravy. The food is the best and your opinion seems to be the only one that feels that way. Sorry, I don’t agree!

    Horrible customer service. I ordered something and got something I didn’t order but the owner didn’t care. No loss on my side too expensive for bad food
