Chicagoan needs Boca Raton recs--escape from catered food

susanb | Aug 13, 2002 01:20 AM

My family (2 adults, two teenaged boys) will be in Boca Raton for a family event Labor Day weekend. I'm not sure how often we'll be "allowed out"-- probably only for a meal or two. I've read through the Florida board, and would love to try some of the barbeque places (Tom Jenkins, Jack's...) but I'm not sure of the geography--are they within, say, 15 minutes of Boca? Are any good bbq places close by?

Also, we'd be happy with any other recs for delicious, laid back, not too haute type places. Some of the places that sound good from the posts include Zemi, Mario's Tuscan Grill, Max's Grille, Gary Woo...Do any of these fit that description, or can you steer us to places that do? Many thanks!
