hiddenboston has fallen for McKay’s Breakfast and Lunch in South Quincy, an old-school joint that serves nicely tender, well-seasoned home fries made from a mixture of red and russet potatoes. hiddenboston also talks up the corned beef hash, which has “a nice crusty ‘skin’,” and a lot of onions.

The atmosphere’s not bad either, says hiddenboston: “If you go, expect to hear lots of ‘honeys’ and ‘sweeties’ and expect to see a colorful mix of blue-collar folks, Irish immigrants, and elderly folks who seem to know everyone here.”

Since McKay’s is located across from the Adams’ Houses, it might make a good first stop on a tourist day.
