We live in Seattle but whenever we are in Boston, we always come here. Today I read the bad reviews and it hurt my feelings, which is ridiculous because I don't have any share in ownership and I don't live near here. I wondered if the place had gone that far downhill in the last 2 years since we were... More

What is there to say? I've eaten here since it opened close to 40 years ago. Great food, good value, consistency. Love the steak tips, house salad dressing, giant antipastos, steak fries that are as big as small logs, wind dings!! Wish I could say something about another entree, but in all the years I've eaten here, I've never gotten... More

I went here 2-3 a week back in the 80s. The best. Had the pleasure of going while buzzing through Boston area. Still the same costs more but well worth it. Love this place.

If you love steak tips then this is the place for you but don't ask what they marinate the tips in or they may have to kill you! Their salad dressing which is homemade is so good I could drink it. Everything on the menu is great. Whatever you order, you won't go wrong! By the way, CASH only!

We never order anything else. We went back twice during a visit to Boston; only had tips, medium rare, salad and bread. Not fancy, never was. Back in the day, when we lived in Natant, a town north of Boston, the line was out the door. Now, 35 years later, not so due to competition down the road. However, this... More

I've been coming here for years and had a very good meal with my sister and cousin. After our meal, we were talking when I noticed a bug on the table in front of me. I killed it with my soda glass and asked my sister what it was. She said it was a roach and, unfortunately, I believed her... More

This restaurant has been a favorite of mine and my friends for over 30 years. There used to be a line out the door to get a seat but things have slowed down a little. I have to say that the flavors are the same as there were on my first time there. I'm thinking of going back again today.

Does not accept cash. Hamburger meat burnt. Waitress using unclean hands (played with hair) to put bread in basket.

Visited here in May, 2016, brought here by a friend who extolled the virtues of their steak tips. Our group of 5 let him order for all of us. We each had a giant meatball which was nearly the size of a softball, and excellent. We shared a plate of their French fries. This was enough for 5 because the... More
