Dimly lit with small booths and a laid-back wait staff, this quaint bar and eatery can get crowded quickly. Delux Cafe may not look like much from the outside, but it is the inside that counts. All types come here looking for an inexpensive drink or supper. Quality pizzas and daily specials are satisfying and made promptly. The split pea soup, vegetable pie and herb-roasted pork loin are quite good as well. This is the perfect place to escape the pomp and prices of downtown.
Woodman's of Essex is regarded as the birthplace of the fried clam. In business since 1914, they also offer unrivaled catering services. Enjoy fresh and delicious clambakes, chowder, mussels, lobster rolls, scallops and shrimp. Seafood lover or not, this award-winning place is a must-visit for a taste of New England authenticity.
Tourists still flock to Bull & Finch Pub, a.k.a. Cheers Boston, the inspiration for the Cheers television series which ran for 11 years and won a number of awards. Avid fans should be forewarned, however; the exterior is very familiar, but the inside is nothing like the TV version. Drinks and food are served here, but its icon status is the main draw. It is considered by many to be one of the top tourist attractions in Boston!
Sunset Cantina dominates the tequila market. They have a seemingly endless selection of tequilas, and a vast drink menu to match. With monthly margaritas and bartender's suggestions, you could become a Sunset regular and never have the same drink twice. The food selection is as varied as its libations, with generous portions and plenty of flavor.
