@TridentBooks on Newbury has some of the best home-made corned beef hash I've ever tasted. Huge chunks of meat mixed with potatoes and cabbage and other good stuff topped with 2 eggs. Amazing.
Early American in Quincy is great.
Renee's Cafe Holland Street Somerville
Harry's in Westborough. Homemade, finely chopped and grilled slightly crispy.
Ball Square Cafe in Somerville. The perfect ratio of the three.

I second Trident, it's the best traditional hash around. For a modern twist, I love the Red Flannel Hash from The Fireplace in Brookline. They throw some turkey and beets in with the corned beef!
Ball Square Cafe
Town Diner in Watertown. Real meat strips, not mush!

Gotta try the Red Flannel Hash at flora in Arlington for Sunday Brunch! Beets meets eggs - you wouldn't think it would work but OH MY it does!
Jimmy's Diner in Weymouth on Broad St, is very good, order it well done . Thank me later.
Rox Diner in West Roxbury. I haven't had it, but my friend says it's the best...as is all their food!
Mike's City Diner in the South End, and Cafe Luna in Central Square.
Mike's Diner in the South End. Yum.
Asgard in Cantral Square. Hands down!
Galley diner in southie
trident - hands down.
ITS TRIDENT. I am serious. you haven't lived until you have tried their corn beef hash.
Red's in Salem or Victoria's Diner on Mass Ave.
Absolutely Trident. My regular order there is a Fresh Complexion juice, a cup of French Onion soup, and always, always a side of Corned Beef Hash.
MULS Diner in South Boston. C'mon people! Can't believe i'm the first vote.
another vote for deluxe town diner, watertown.

Dot2Dot in Dorchester has the best corned beef hash. Hands down.
Station 5 Grill in Natick has a wonderful corned beef hash omlett. full of meat & perfectly seasoned.
The Early American cafe in Quincy is the only place I go for hash because it's homemade and chunks of corned beef get cozy with a perfect ratio of onions and potatoes. No cans here guys, f that noise you can open a can of hash and cook it well done at home, if that's the gross experience you're looking for. But since I was in high school, it's the only choice for bomb hash perfectly suited to treat a hangover.
Zoe's in Harvard Square
