Boston Market is one of the few places along the highway that I see and start to smile. Its good, its healthy, its fresh and its not expensive. If I eat a fast food burger more than once a year, that is a lot. Boston Market is not fast food, at least not in the sense that most might think. It is great food, great taste, far more healthier and and you can get it fairly quickly.
I’ve been a fan of Boston Market for a long time, going back at least a decade. The food is not held in a back kitchen where you never see it, but right up front under a glass case where you can look and choose what you want to eat rather than look at it on a menu.
The variety is truly amazing: corn, rice, mashed potatoes, roasted potatoes, creamed spinach, yams, macaroni and cheese, steamed vegetables, stuffing, baked apples, and probably many others depending on the location. What I like about this is, you have options. I love my starches, so I like my potatoes. However, if you are on a diet and do not want potatoes or mac & cheese, you can get the steamed vegetables, corn or string beans.
Honestly, in a world of fast food chains, this is your best option for great food you might have gotten back in the old days, at a very reasonable price. Even in the heart of Manhattan in New York City, you can get an oven crisp chicken cutlet (not fried, and its delicious), two sides and corn bread, all for under $8. This is unheard of in most places, much less the tourist district of New York City.
