Boulevard Diner

diner81 300x199 Boulevard Diner Shrewsbury MassachusettsI recently went to the Boulevard Diner (155 Shrewsbury St. Worcester) with my son and we had such a great experience, I thought I would share.  The Boulevard Diner is fashioned out of an old streetcar.  It has been in the same location now for 74 years.  We went on a Friday night at about 8:30 PM – after the dinner hour and before it gets busy from the late-night crowd.  We walked right in and sat at the counter, which is about 12 stools long, and there are about 6 booths in this small diner.  The menu board above the counter is plentiful and the only problem I had was that I like almost everything they serve.  I chose the baked meatloaf with baked beans. The meatloaf was firm and tasty with a bit of spice; the brown gravy served on top completed it.  The baked beans, which I put right on top of the meatloaf, were delicious and a bit on the thicker side which I enjoy. Traditionally the meatloaf is served with a potato and a vegetable but these folks are OK with special orders.

My son ordered the “Big Bully” – 3 eggs, with sausages AND bacon AND ham, home fries, AND French toast.  It was GREAT…yes, I did try a bit of breakfast too.  The best was the French toast which they carve from a fresh loaf of Italian Vienna bread – it was a thick slice but super light…another great meal.  Oh yeah…we finished everything.

While I was there I saw the fish and chips come out which looked lightly golden fried and delicious.  I also saw the “chicken salad with cranberries and walnuts” served on that Italian Vienna bread like the French toast which looked awesome as well.

I also saw a few orders of pasta with meatballs.  The sauce looked great!  They said they make it themselves and it is a specialty of the house. The portion filled the plate completely.

Unfortunately we did not save room for dessert, but they had 6 different kinds of pies including apple, pumpkin, and Boston-crème.  It may be worthy of another stop there just to get dessert.

2 of us ate like kings for $23 (not including tip) – had some good conversation with those around us and enjoyed a wonderful diner experience.   Good thing it is open 24 hours…I will be back…often
