person holding brown and black chocolate cakeI couldn’t believe my eyes when I heard about Burnt Kosher Smokehouse in Boca Raton. It’s a place that’s been on my radar for ages, known for its incredible flavors and commitment to quality. As someone who’s always been intrigued by the rich tapestry of kosher cuisine, this news hit me hard.

The smokehouse wasn’t just a restaurant; it was a cornerstone for the local community and a beacon for food enthusiasts like me. Its unique blend of traditional kosher practices with modern culinary techniques had always set it apart. Now, with the smoke cleared, I’m left wondering about the future of this beloved establishment and the impact on Boca Raton’s culinary scene.


Walking into the restaurant, I was always struck by the warm, inviting ambiance. The décor blended rustic charm with contemporary elegance, creating a space where families could gather for celebrations or friends for casual get-togethers. Soft lighting and hand-painted murals depicting scenes from ancient markets added layers of depth and intrigue.


The menu was an exciting fusion of traditional and modern flavors. Every dish told a story, from the brisket smoked to perfection over hickory woods to the Burn Ends that danced on the palate. Ingredients were always fresh, sourced locally when possible, and the care in preparation was evident in every bite.

Chef Sam Sobol is extremely creative in the kitchen and comes up with spontaneous special appetizers and desserts.

At times he will hold special international nights that pack the restaurant. His Chinese night was so popular they sold out extremely quickly. There wasn’t an egg roll to be had!


What truly set the smokehouse apart was the exceptional service. Staff members were not just employees; they were part of the family. Knowledgeable about the menu, they guided diners with patience and enthusiasm, making everyone feel welcome.

My Favorite Dish

Among the many culinary delights, my favorite was undoubtedly the smoked short ribs. The meat, tender and flavorful, fell off the bone, complemented by a side of roasted vegetables. Each mouthful was a testament to the passion and expertise that went into its creation.
