Jet’s Pizza Soars into the Springs

Jets1

By: Dan I Cook

I remember seeing this pizza joint in Pompano years ago. When I first drove by, the only thing I could think of when I saw it was the New York Jets. I was thinking to myself, “Are you kidding me? A New York Jets Pizza place in Miami Dolphin’s country?” I wasn’t going to eat there because the Jets suck. So I never did. 

My Mistake

Fast forward to present day and I see that Jet’s Pizza is opening in Coral Springs. So, not to let my ongoing hatred of the New York Jets cloud thinking once more, I decided to research this restaurant, and I’m happy to report that this franchise started in Michigan.

Oops!

And has nothing to do with supporting the NY Jets.

Yikes!

Man, I screwed up and I’m sorry.  I found out Jet’s is known for its square deep-dish Detroit-style pizza, which I didn’t know existed, including the 8-corner pizza which the company has trademarked. Apparently when the store first opened, the square pizzas were a novelty in the region. The original recipe came from the owner’s mother and hasn’t changed since 1978. The owner’s last name is Jetts, thus came the name of the restaurant. All die-hard Fin fans can sigh in relief.

The Food

So I decided to give them a try and ordered the Jet’s Triple Cheese Turbo Stix. Damn, that is a long-ass name for cheese bread. This bread is described as 12-pieces of freshly baked bread with premium mozzarella, cheddar, and Romano cheese topped with butter and garlic and includes pizza sauce. For my pizza, I ordered a Super Special which is premium mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, ham, mushrooms, onions, and green pepper pizza. I didn’t get the ham and I added extra mushrooms. Plus I added their “free” turbo crust seasonings which is Romano cheese, garlic and butter. 

I chatted with the manager and he cut me a price break on the turbo bread. I originally ordered the basic cheese bread and then changed it. He kept the original price since it was cheaper and said, please tell your friends that we are open. I laughed and said no problem bub, I will. Overall the service was fast and friendly.

Now, I’m going to rate this joint in the category of Pizza Hut and Dominos. Why? Because all these places make their pizza on a conveyor belt oven. The Turbo Bread was freaking outstanding. It was layered with cheese and the dough was soft, chewy with crisp edges. This will sound strange to you pizza snobs, but I just love Little Caesar’s Crazy Bread. It is so addicting especially when it is right out of the conveyor oven. I know some of you love Crazy Bread too, but won’t admit it out loud. That’s ok, but I would rate this Turbo Bread right up there with Crazy Bread.  Damn tasty.

The pan pizza was spot on too. I would compare my fast food pan pizza with Pizza Hut. There was a time when all Pizza Huts were sit down restaurants. They also had the best pan pizza besides UNOs. As a young boy I dreamed of taking a date to Pizza Hut just to sit in one of the two corner tables. These tables sat two people with a little curtain that you could close for privacy. Life was simple then. Now a romantic dinner is going to Berns Steakhouse in Tampa. Oh, to be young again. With that said, this pan pizza is better than Pizza Hut. The sauce, the dough, the crust, and the toppings just tasted better. Most importantly, the prices are comparable. 

Verdict 

Hell yeah I like this place. First off this place has nothing to do with the NY Jets because we all know they suck. The manager and staff were friendly. Lastly, the food is pretty damn tasty. What else do you need besides a private table built for two?

Four beers. Remember to tell them that Dan and Coral Springs Talk sent you and Stay Hungry!

      Paul, like I said in my review, I compared this joint to the same like minded pizza places. You are a gourmet dude so I know you understand where I’m coming from. I respect your opinion so let me know what you think. Thanks buddy!

  • I just love Jet’s! I am an avid deep dish lover and just adore the 8 corner pizza…I love the idea of every piece being a corner…which I enjoy in pizza as much as brownies ;-).
