If you've ever gone to one of the restaurants listed on your GPS only to be greatly disappointed, you might want to check this site for a review.
You can do it before you leave on your journey or on the road, if you have a phone with Internet access. www.roadfood.com
I found the site when searching for Curtis BBQ in Putney, VT. We're heading there on our bike tomorrow. Looks like a fun, funky place.
Nice site. I'll definately research it.
I've been a participant on Roadfood for years. Recently after getting my nuvi660 I paid the premium to become an 'insider' just to have access to their POI file. Roadfood has helped us find great places to eat while on the road and some even close to home. BTW, on our way home from Killington a few weeks ago along route 103 (near Chester maybe) I think I saw another Curtis BBQ. Not sure if they were open yet, but the place in Putney certainly was.
I think word of mouth is better to be honest. Whenever I go somewhere I always just ask the locals where the best place to eat is. However, I must admit, that "the best place" can vary from person to person and what one would consider a "nice" place, well.....I just don't see eye to eye.
So, Boston locals, what is good to eat there, be there in a week.
Roadfood is 'word of mouth' but the vehicle is the internet. Do you like Prime Rib? I'd go to Durgin Park.
Or you can go over to Chowhounds to read their forums. You might try posting a request for recommendations, I got some great advise for a trip to Baltimore that I took about a month ago.
Oh so Roadfood is word of mouth, very nice! I will have to try it then.
Yes, I like Prime Rib. I may try that out, thanks! Got coordinates?
no coordinates, sorry but it is hard to miss. One of the busiest downtown places is Quincey market and it is right there. One of their slogans is 'Your grandfather probably dined here' and I know mine did and I'm an old guy. I think my daughter picked her college (Boston College) because of that place as well.
Boston's North End is their Italian section. In the summer the older Italian men and women sit out on benches speaking Italian and watch the tourists.
If you like Italian food, that's the place to get it. Artu's for a meal, Pizzaria Regina - Pizza, Cafe Umburto's serves inexpensive delicious food until they run out(looks like Seinfeld's soup kitchen store), Bova for a "to go" giagantic $7 Italian sub, they also have amazing pastry. Tourists go to Mike's Pastry for the Florintine cannoli, but Modern Pastry is a local favorite. Seafood - definately ye old Oyster house and Boston legal seafood
I could go on and on.., but I think Miss POI gave us another place for that.
Baltimore has a "Little Italy" section just off the inner harbor which has some great Italian restaurants.
I'm from Long Island, NY and spent many a happy meal at Italian restaurants in Little Italy in "the City". You all know which one I mean. Many Health Departments also post inspection ratings on their websites for the restaurants they inspect. You may find the food in one of them isn't too great but it probably will not get you sick or kill you!

30 N Market St, Boston, MA
I found it in MapSource, so it should be in the map database.
Thanks! I may try it, I am sure that it can't be worse the DC traffic, can it?
...Seafood - definately ye old Oyster house and Boston legal seafood...
I love oysters!!!!!!!
N42 21.609 W71 03.255
I don't get the coordinates. I am use to seeing 42.xxxxxx, so so it suppose to be 42.21609?
Sorry for the different format.
Oh, and Boston traffic/drivers is/are WAY worse than DC.
Thanks a bunch!
Man, worse then DC???? Ummm...maybe I shouldn't go down there then since a native Boston says that it is busy!
You could leave your car at your hotel, or park at the Alweif parking garage and take the T (train/subway system).
Boston has trains that go everywhere in town that you'd like to visit.
We know our way around, and we sometimes do this, just because traffic patterns change every day with road work, tunnel work, parades, etc.
Hotel is in Springfield, but flying to Logan.
