Boston Market's tasty comfort food

I haven't seen much mention here of this upscale fast-food eatery chain, which built up several locales around L.A. during the '90s, then shut down seemingly the majority of them late in the decade. I believe the name does them no favors; that many Angelinos think they are merchandise stores of some sort. There are still two Boston markets in my general vicinity, each being twelve miles from home in opposite directions.

I visit the one in San Dimas five or six times a year, most often for a sandwich, which is served on a white or wheat Kaiser roll. The meatloaf sandwich is simply out of this world. The sirloin dip with Swiss cheese is excellent also, though the beef can be just a tad on the dry side. I am a red meat lover, but have also tried the turkey dip with Swiss and found it tasty and moist. Sandwiches are around $6, or $4 for a half.

If you're in the mood for a sit-down dinner, there are delicious entrées pf rotisserie chicken, roast sirloin, turkey and meatloaf, with choice of two sides and cornbread for around $7 -8. The sides are excellent and include mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet corn, creamed spinach, and truly awesome cinnamon apples. There is also a killer chicken pot pie, a friend’s favorite menu item. Soups and salads are available also, which others say are excellent.

There are neither frills nor ambience, just great comfort food, very well prepared from fresh ingredients. Check out their website (Google Boston Market) for menu and locations.
