It’s a North Shore thing

Roast beef and seafood.  I don’t really know why, but it’s definitely a north shore Massachusetts thing to have lots of roast beef and seafood shops around town.  Lots of people mention this when they visit.  I never really noticed – but I do now.

One of the best of this type of shops is located in my home town of Wakefield, MA.

Billy’s Roast Beef and Seafood has been around for ever and is a staple in town.  Everyone knows it, everyone likes it and the other day I went back for the first time in a few years.  There is nothing special (or healthy) about it, but it’s damn good.

Sometimes there’s nothing like a large beef sandwich with some mayo and BBQ sauce.  With a Coke, of course.

  1. So true… I think the little local sub/ roast beef shops are a northeast thing in general. Anywhere else in the country you gotta go to Arby’s, which is pretty much mediocre. I know there’s a few Arby’s over here, but its just not that popular. Why would anybody go there when you could get a 10x better roast beef at Billy’s which is right in your neighborhood.
