the Bill and Bob's chain-remnants all over-my local one in on the Woburn/Winchester,MA line-good late night eats.
Went to the one in Woburn today!
I was up there picking up a repair job from Cambridge Typewriter, and now that I have roast beef firmly associated with Massachusetts in my mind, my decision for lunch was easy.
This is a "Big Roast Beef" with just mustard, horseradish, and onions. Louis' Lunch has taught me that good beef, whether ground, sliced, shaved, whatever, shouldn't need a lot of accents.
I was quite pleased. As with Kelly's, this was what I imagined Arby's serving back in the '60s and '70s before the processed-meat apocalypse. It was a little inconsistent in that some parts of it seemed juicy, while others were a bit dry, but, for me, that just emphasized its realism. And the meat was indeed good enough to not require many condiments.
Special mention must be made to the waffle fries, which were given to me in a separate bag. Ohh yeah. When you see a bag like this, you know what you're in for.
Can't help wishing a little bit that I'd grown up with places like this in close proximity. All I had was post-apocalypse Arby's.
