    Try a Kayem dog (same dogs used at Fenway) is griddled, then pressed with American cheese, hot pickles, mustard, and caramelized onion. If it’s not your dog of the day, no matter; any dog-day will do. Read more

    Try the "Vicious Circle", a classic craft cocktail with a twist. Based on the algonquin cocktail, pineapple is added to the mix to give this strong drink a hint of summer. Read more

    Don't leave without trying the Starlite-style burger: two 4 oz. patties on a bun, separated by a layer of fries and another layer of cole slaw, topped with special sauce. Messy but so worth it.

    Here's our go-to order: the skinny onion strings, the bbq sweet potato chips and the pepperoni roll. Give us a can of Carling Black Label or a terrific cocktail and we're happy campers. Read more

    Order a double cheeseburger with a side of onion strings. Place the onion strings on burger. Reconstruct the burger. Eat. Enjoy.

    Only six taps here, but the draft options are choice. Get the fries with (or without gravy) and the onion strings to soak up all the menu of craft cocktails, offbeat wines + more. Read more

    Some really tasty stuff here. Just not tons for the veggie crew. The veggie burger is super tasty and the drinks are A-Ok! Worth it.

    Sloppy Joe night, kool aid du jour, tang, hot dog of the day, chocolate covered bacon, and drinks that will knock your proverbial socks off. If you're gettin a burger, order it w the cole slaw. Trust.

    While some say the best chicken and waffles are to be found in Harlem, farther north they do a mean version (served with hot pepper syrup) at this comfort-food spot in the Boston suburb of Somerville.

    Eggplant Parm is outstanding. Probably the best I've ever had. Get whatever Pretty Things they currently have on tap.

    The only thing better than the chicken and waffles is the post-chicken and waffles blumkin. I wish I could give it 6 stars.

    Get the Mac and cheese and a cup of chili, and have them mix it together for you. It's good, and should be a new menu item.
