Restaurants & Bars 13

Speed's, Oasis

It was a food truck kind of day for a couple of us, as we headed down to Roxbury this afternoon to try Speed's and Oasis. What more can be said about the hot dogs at Speed's - huge, juicy dogs with a sweet taste from the cider and brown sugar, and amazing sauces (BBQ, special sauce). Eating them on the loading dock of Boston Brisket next door, I felt a little like I was in a Sopranos episode (no shootings or golf clubs to the head, though).

Afterwards, we were somehow hungry enough to get more food at Oasis, another food cart around the corner. We ordered empanadas and fries; the empanadas were dry, though the beef was nicely seasoned, and the fries were pretty basic. I was eyeing the chicken fried cheeseburger on their menu, though, so perhaps I'll hit it again the next time I'm at Speed's.
