Boston Restaurant Blog -- July, 2006
Saturday, July 15, 2006
Three of us took a spin up to Revere Beach on Friday night to get some cheap eats and try to escape the summer heat. We started off at Bianchi's Pizza for some truly incredible pizza. This was my second trip to Bianchi's this week, but I can never get tired of their pies, which in my opinion rank just below Santarpio's in East Boston and Pizzeria Regina in the North End for best pizza in the Boston area. In fact, a feature on Bianchi's Pizza has just been added to Boston's Hidden Restaurants (see link above).
After downing a few slices, we walked up the road to Kelly's Roast Beef where I ordered a cheeseburger and fries (we were all still a bit hungry after Bianchi's Pizza). Many people don't realize it, but Kelly's has outstanding burgers. The fries, however, have never been great, and Friday night was no exception. Kelly's is definitely a classic, and a great spot to do people-watching while enjoying a bite to eat on any number of the benches that line the beach wall.
We finished off the night by walking another few hundred yards up to Kell's Kreme not to be confused with Kelly's; it's called Kell's, not Kelly's). Kell's has excellent soft serve ice cream, though the portions were just a bit too large for us after all the food we ate. Kell's isn't the most well-known ice cream stand in the area, but it is definitely worth checking out.
I don't get up to Revere Beach as much as I used to, but when we do go, it is still a memorable time. Sure, Revere Beach can be a bit tacky, but that is half the fun. I hope it never changes...
If you are wondering how to get to Bianchi's Pizza, Kelly's Roast Beef, and Kell's Kreme, they are all on Revere Beach Boulevard along Revere Beach, within walking distance of each other.
I am a Revere native, and I miss kelly's and Kelly's Kreme! Although I gained a lot of weight eating both!
I lived on Revere Beach and grew up there. The traffic was slow and people were lookin for a place to park. It was such a great place to live although the wata was cold!
