It may be perfect cuisine for the student metabolism: a huge variety of variously garnished thick burgers with sassy names (many of them celebrities), deliciously crispy regular and sweet-potato fries, and onion rings. There's also a competent veggie burger, along with comforting dinner fare like baked meatloaf and franks and beans. Soda fountain favorites include thick frappes and the nonalcoholic "raspberry lime rickey," made with fresh limes, raspberry juice, sweetener,
and soda water. Tiny tables in a crowded space make eavesdropping unavoidable. During busy times employees sometimes hand out menus and take orders outside on the sidewalk.

One of the best spots in the Boston area for a burger, a crowded and mildly dumpy place decorated with dorm room type signs and posters. Besides burgers, also dishes up good student friendly comfort food options. Good prices for the area, too.

Certainly the best burgers within 100 miles of Boston. The owner cooks on a well seasoned grill. Also, a large variety of home-cooked comfort foods and plenty of vegetarian options. I've been a semi-regular for 7 years, and their simple, inexpensive food has been consistantly excellent. Caution: no public restroom.
