Where NOT To Eat In Boston, MA

September 22, 2012

Recently I travelled to Boston, MA to move my cousin into college. Here’s a (short!) list of places we ate that I would recommend avoiding, unless you don’t have tastebuds or are some kind of food masochist.

84 Beacon Street
Boston, MA 02108

The food here is mediocre at best (on the same caliber as a Chili’s or Applebee’s), and way overpriced. If you really want to go, get a drink at the bar and visit the giftshop. That way you can say you went to the Cheers Bar, but you don’t spend a crapload of money on subpar food. Also, no one knew my name.

Absolutely overpriced. Got the “Taste of Ireland” appetizer sampler (boxty wedges with cheese dip, miniature Irish sausages, onion rings & chicken tenders)… none of that stuff is irish, and it’s $13 dollars to boot. Splitting it between the four of us meant cutting everything in half so that everyone could try. What kind of a “sampler” is that, if it’s only good for 2 people? Though they did have imported Irish beer on tap, they were ridiculously expensive for a pint. Just, totally avoid this place. Seriously, don’t even bother.
