Bummer clams at Tony's, Wollaston

i can never remember if I usually go to Tony's or the Clam Box and which is supposed to be the better one. Since there was a volleyball tournament across from Tony's, I went there. Clam roll was $13.95, served with fries (I think they might sub onion rings for you but I forgot to ask). Out came these humungous clams that couldn't fit in the roll. I know some of you are into really big bellies bit I like medium and these were way beyond that. Just too big and lots of necks, extra chewiness, not enough batter. I think it's a good thing I got a roll to kind of disguise some what I didn't like. I walked by the Clam Box and theirs looked more my style. Waste of calories, maybe I should have gone for a lobster roll which was my other thought. I did end on a good note w/ a grapenut cone at Louie's in E. Somerville which still makes mighty fine ice cream. They don't have kiddie size on the menu anymore but he made me one, which was still good sized and just $2.
