Blue Ribbon BBQ

Reviewed By Paul B - Boston, Massachusetts

I brought my Dad and we split a burnt end platter with coleslaw and baked beans. Plenty of food for 2 in one platter order. Actually more then enough! Staff is very friendly and food comes quickly. The BBQ is excellent. Just the right amount of smoke and sauce. Baked beans were very good and we enjoyed the tangy coleslaw. We sat inside and enjoyed our meal. Overall a very nice experience and they get the excellent rating from the quality of food. Great job.

I have Celiac disease. The waiter provided me with a gluten free menu! I could still get most everything on the menu with some modifications. The Potato Falafel was amazing. I also had the steak tartare. My friends are vegetarian and there were great options for them as well! Great to go here with friends, family, or on a date!

Ball Square Cafe

Reviewed By barbershopchick - Chicago

Stopped in here for lunch on a cold, blustery day with my brother and nephew. We had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. The place was busy, but turnover is quick. My brother and I had sandwiches-a Reuben and a BLT. My nephew...MoreI'm happy you enjoyed your lunch with your brother and nephew! It's wonderful to hear you were seated promptly and that you enjoyed your meal. Looking forward to having you all back again soon to try out some more items on our menu! -Mike, Owner

Reviewed By cootmom - Massachusetts

This is a lovely spot with entrees and apps that give the diner a chance to escape the taco-burrito-fajita trap.Although they do have some standard fare, the choices are much more varied. Service is impeccable, seating comfortable and not too noisy, though for dinner, the earlier the better. Portions are reasonable but without the massive quantities usually encountered. Rice and beans are $3.00 a la carte on some choices. Try "Taco Tuesday", for $3 tacos!

Reviewed By Mike S - Boston, Massachusetts

Guilia is quite a find - as hard as it is to secure a reservation. The food is very fresh and local, the service outstanding and smart, the interior intimate and the atmosphere relaxed and modest even as the restaurant is packed as usual. Highly recommended - if you can get in.

Tenoch Mexican

Reviewed By sam t - Medford, Massachusetts

This spot has been a hit with the local ever since it opened and has quickly spawned other brick and mortar spots elsewhere in the greater boston area.
I really liked the place initially - fast service, interesting tortas and burritos, but lately some of the food was just overly salty.

Bistro 5

Reviewed By Maria Beatriz L - Burlington, Massachusetts

A hidden place in a small town near Boston, Bistro 5 has a chic and refined French cuisine, including a tasting menu that was only partially available on Saturday! Highly rated here on Tripadvisor, we made the attempt and found that the cost-benefit and the customer care service made us regret it! Fine menu for a spot without finesse!

Menotomy Grill & Tavern

Located in the town now known as Arlington, Menotomy Grill and Tavern gives a respectful nod to the neighborhood's pre-Revolutionary War history, named Menotomy by Native Americans in 1635. This spacious and comfortable gastropub, located on the border between Arlington and North Cambridge, offers rustic contemporary ambiance, a cozy fireplace, outdoor seating during warmer months and an ample parking lot. Chef Mark Thompson delivers unique and inventive dishes as well as some traditional standards, bringing to the restaurant his years of experience at Chez Henri and Stoddards. The bar features a respectable list of craft beers on draught, including a rotating cask selection.

Reviewed By NellieB169 - Arlington, Massachusetts

We have enjoyed Menotomy Grill as a nice place for dinner (my daughter picked it one year as her choice for her birthday dinner) and for dessert. We went there with a friend the other month on a Tuesday night and they were open late, serving dessert. It must have been at least 10:00 when we went there - and the place wasn't full, but there were certainly a good number of people. A nice place to enjoy.
