We went for lunch. The chicken quesadilla was awesome, one of best I have ever had. Also got a pizza, delicious. Nice atmosphere and great service. My friend had the steak quesadilla and said it was great as well.

Great pizzas, lots of TV screens and friendly service, the Arena is the ONLY place for nighttime in Cambridge. It is truly a locals place, but visitors fit right in - just root for Ohio State if they are playing!
