Don't we all have a restaurant that we have driven by for years, you've never stopped in, you don't know anybody who has eaten there, and it never seems to be busy? You wonder how it has survived so long?
Let's hear from other Chowhounds about those kinds of places and maybe someone can actually give us a report on a place that one of us describes.
I will start out with one -- how about Essy's Carriage House Restaurant in Arlington at the intersection of Lee Hwy and N. Quincy Street? Its sign says it is German/Austrian/Euro, but I never see anyone there and can't find anyone who has been. The place has been there forever, but no news ever on it. Anyone ever been?
