Two short blocks from Fanuil Hall, this very small and very informal restaurant is a great place for comfort food and drinks. Check out the menu because there is no way to really describe the food other than delicious. This a counter service only place with about 10 tables. The crowd is young, hip and noisy - but it is...

My wife and I have visited Saus several times, and we make sure to stop in during trips to Boston. We stopped in this past weekend with our daughter and son-in-law. It was cold outside, but Saus is cozy and inviting. Our favorite frites is the Poutine with pork belly. The best dipping sauces is the Green Monster, Bacon Parm... More

Everytime we visit Boston we stop here. Located in the center of many tourist attractions, Saus is a great place to grab a quick bite - their fries and various sauces are delicious. A well rounded beer selection and heavenly dessert waffles add to its charm. It's a tiny place and it gets crowded fast, so come early for best... More

Fantastic spot! The mushroom grilled cheese is great, and all of the different sauces for the fries are excellent, include the spicy jalapeño one. Awesome beer selection and great pricing, too. Would have been 5 stars EXCEPT for the following: 1. Our fries were mostly little fry bits, almost what would be left over at the bottom of the fry... More

Belgian fries with 12 different sauces to choose from. Belgian fries are twice fried fresh potato fries. Yummy! We also had the Chicken sandwich and sausage with two local brews from the tap. This is a small place with about eight tables. I don't give 5 stars without good cause. Highly recommend this spot!

Visited during a recent trip to Boston. Loved the poutine on fries and the dipping sauces. We also tried one of the sandwiches which was delicious as well! Go early if you don't want to wait!

There's really nothing better than the combination of french fries, gravy, cheese, and meat. And if you, like me, have dreamed of this combination, Saus is the place to go. It really is the intersection of all things unhealthy, but it's worth the calories every time. The fries are the right amount of thickness. The gravy is rich and hot.... More

Mushroom grilled cheese was exceptional. Putine was tasty with pork belly as a topping. Would absolutely go back for that grilled cheese.

We heard about this restaurant from the Food Channel. It was just as good as it looked on TV! We ordered the Sloppy Jacques (a version of Sloppy Joe’s I guess) and the Frik. Both were very different from each other but equally amazing! The Frik had onions and a special sauce and tasted like a sausage. The restaurant also... More

I first learned of this restaurant from Guy Fieri's show Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. Let me tell you, this WILL NOT disappoint you. There are some evil genius style sandwiches coming out of this place with incredible flavor. The large fries, are ridiculously large (3-4 people), and the 15 custom dipping sauces they make on site are incredible. They also... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
