    They have insanely good nachos. And big portions. If u have a big group of people, get the full portion, but if its just 2 ppl, get the half portion unless u r really hungry or plan on leftovers.

    Sunset is your best option for the biggest, best selection of beers on tap, and the 350-bottle list is nuts. If you’re looking to try as many new beers as possible, this is the place. Read more

    If you are a craft beer lover, you just entered your mecca. Largest selection of beers on tap (over 100) and even more available by the bottle. The beer menu is your beer bible. Enjoy.

    Best for beer variety in Allston (though have cut back in recent years 😣). Beers are ordered by style which is great. Also, nachos are number bang for your buck anywhere I know of.

    Try the Swordfish Burger, Glazed With Cheddar Cheese And Sour Cream Fries - For reals, your mouth will love you for putting this in your food hole and chewing the hell out of it.

    Good selection of brown beers for the times I have been. I like the DogFish Head Palo Santo Marron, and Clown Shoes. One of the better selection of beers on tap I have seen in Boston.

    Probably the best beer list in town, which means you'll run into plenty of beer geeks ordering rare brews. Get the Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA and you'll fit right in. Good for late night visits.

    Caitlyn P. was an attentive, friendly, knowledgable sever. The Isaac's Sparkling Pomegranate Mead on tap is too die for; I recommended it to all the champagne lovers of the world.

    Everyone talks about the nachos (and rightfully so, they are amazing, don't miss them), but the pulled pork (in many different variations) shouldn't be missed. Get it on a quesadilla!
  • Ilana F.
    Ilana FriedDecember 31, 2011
    Best nachos ever. Skip out on the lettuce, it gets in the way. Also get the guac/sour cream/salsa on the side so you can evenly distribute as much or as little as you want

    Wander down further West and eat at Sunset Grill & Tap over Sunset Cantina. Don't forget to try a BU favorite: Triple XXX nachos (and there's takeout!)

    Tasting flights are not limited to the predefined ones on the menu - they'll make a flight out of anything on tap, just ask. Great way to sample 10+ beers at a time!

    If you can't decide on a brew, check the inside of the drinks menu for a selection of flights which allow the sampling of four beers.

    Start your Friday with one of our many winter seasonal beers! I recommend the Anderson Valley Winter Solstice, or one of the Belgian Holiday beers!

    If you have a chance, chat at the bar with the bartenders and watch them try to find an obscure beer in the fridge. It's hilarious.

    The bartender tells me they serve the largest selection of mead in the world. If you're a beginner, start with the "Viking's Blood."

    To echo Billy J., nachos are the Best in Boston hands down. They do a nacho style Spinach and Artichoke dip too with the dip on top of a pile of pita chips, also worth checking out.

    Our server Liz came w/ an extra beer we didn't order & said "the bartender gave me an extra beer, you guys want it?" Our bill came- she charged us. She said "I didn't say it was free" - watch out.

    I second the nachos. Huge beer list, but always crowded. Great "bar food" but the atmosphere is more like a TGI Fridays. Also, wait for a table upstairs, avoid the basement.
