    Beef on Weck (beef, bun, jus, horseradish) is simple but amazing, a perfect pub sandwich.

    These guys just told me they only serve steak on Saturdays and don't make a steak & cheese sandwich. That is strikeout, not all-star. Go elsewhere.

    The rings & fries of fire are not for the faint of heart. Make sure to have a 'Gansett tall boy handy to put out the flames. 🔥

    As popular as the beef on weck is, I got it once and thought it was boring. The atomic meatloaf is great though.

    Boston.com is wrong on both counts. They take cards, and are open on Sundays. There's nothing on the menu you can go wrong with. Atomic meatloaf is awesomeness sandwichified. Staff are friendly.

    The staff here are really great, however many of the customers that frequent here are judgement. Judgement as in they judge you by what you get and the company you have with you, they talk about you.
