Find your favorite deli-style eats at Rappy’s


Traditional deli items include cold salads, Reuben and Rachel sandwiches, stuffed cabbage, brisket and “noshes” like chopped liver and onions, blintzes and baked knish. There’s also spaghetti and meatballs, roasted chicken and meatloaf.


The contemporary dining room sits in between a take-away area and a boisterous bar with high-top seating. Geometric chandeliers and dark wooden decor complement dim lighting for an upscale setting.


Two crispy golden brown potato latkes ($8.95) were a hearty start to the meal, with a soft, stringy potato center, comparable to hash browns you might find at a breakfast joint. The homemade apple sauce tasted like apple pie filling: sweet, with a cinnamon kick. To my surprise, the pan-roasted beef tips ($19.95) were served in a large bowl. On one side, small-to-medium beef chunks and mushrooms sit in a pool of a red wine sauce mixed with sour cream, and on the other is a scoop of mashed potatoes and green beans.


On weekdays from 2:30 to 7:30 p.m., you can enjoy happy hour with “bar bites.” Some are selected from the menu, and others are tailored just for the special at the bar and high-tops.


Our waiter helped us decide on an appetizer, which ended up being the highlight of the meal.


Loud on a Friday night, especially if you’re sitting near the bar during happy hour.


Kids will love the choices of specialty milkshakes and floats on the menu, as well as hot dogs and cheeseburgers. They may even want to indulge in all-day breakfast items.


5560 N. Military Trail, Suite 300, Boca Raton, 561-314-6840.

Hours: M-Thurs., 9 a.m.-10 p.m.; F-Sat., 9 a.m.-11 p.m; Sun., 9 a.m.-9 p.m.

Note: Post writers will anonymously visit a restaurant in your neighborhood each week in search of the best menu item. They’ll tell you about that item and why they liked it in this spot each week.
