On March 28th, Tucker Duke’s Lunchbox, located in Boca Raton will celebrate it’s 2 year Anniversary! A block party with local breweries, ice cream trucks and live music is set! This is the second restaurant in Palm Beach County for James-Beard nominated Chef Brian Cartenuto. His first one of course, is the original Tucker Duke’s which has been serving guests in Deerfield Beach for around 4 years now. In addition to the Boca and Deerfield locations, Tucker Duke’s also has a food truck which can usually be found at one of the many local breweries around town.
While they are best known for the award winning “Tucker Duke” burger, one must realize that they have a LOT more to offer! In addition to some incredible burgers, Tucker Duke offers up an array of southern style blue-plate dishes, such as the Nashville Hot Chicken and Jambalaya and tons of great appetizers. Chef Brian and his staff are always experimenting and coming up with crazy good food creations. Yes it is a burger place, but they also offer tons of vegetarian and seafood options for the non-meat eater in the crew. One of the major themes at Tucker Duke’s is LOCAL. They try and use local, seasonal and sustainable food sources whenever they can. In addition to that, they offer about 10 local beers on draft at all time! Truly a great place to grab a beer with friends and share some awesome food. Tucker Duke’s Boca is located at 1658 North Federal Highway in between Glades and 20th street.
