BocaLocals March Meatball Madness 2014: Synopsis

At the beginning of March 2014 I embarked on a mission, together with the BocaLocals, in search of the best meatball in the Boca Raton area. The BocaLocals visited restaurants from Lake Worth to Deerfield Beach, Florida. Below is a listing of all the restaurants that participated. I’ve designated a “grade” to each restaurant based on my meatball eating experience. Keep in mind, this grade reflects the meatball competition only. So, even if I gave a low grade, this does not necessarily mean all the food at this restaurant deserves that grade. Also, these are not the “official” results. Meaning, these grades are my own personal opinion, the official results are the combined scores from all the judges.

Meet the judges:
Shana – Page One Graphics / BocaLocals
Holli – The South Florida Sage
Tim – New Vision Wines
Shaina – Take A Bite Out Of Boca
Wayne and Tracy – 2 Forks and A Cork
Stevette – Fork Notes
Deby – Stepping Out Florida
Ken – Examiner
