When I get to the Gold Star restaurant in Worcester, Massachusetts, I generally sit at the counter. I order and watch as one of 3 or 4 guys makes up my meal. There are also a bunch of booths. It figured that that the guys behind the counter made the food for them too.
I recently went with my wife and youngest (adult) daughter. We sat in a booth, and eventually the question of a rest room came up. It turns out that you need to go through the kitchen and into the basement to find it. It turns out that there is a large well staffed and very clean kitchen to serve the booths. When you have customers passing through your cooking area on a regular basis, you have to work neat.
Gold Star is often mentioned as a good roadfood location in Massachusetts. One day, I'll get a digital camera to get a review up and going........
Our breakfast for 3 was just over $15 before tip, and was at least a 9 out of 10.
