Kelly's Roast Beef

410 Revere Beach Blvd., Revere, MA - (781) 284-9129
Roast beef sandwiches are beloved north of Boston, and Kelly's roast beef, available in a small or large sandwich, is lovely: soft, pink, thin-sliced, and piled high on a butter-toasted, sesame-seed bun. There are a few Kelly's around town; the original and the best is at Revere Beach, where you can dine under a Pavillion in the open air.

While not among contenders for the North Shore Pantheon, the fried clams served at Kelly's can be pretty darn tasty.

Hand-battered onion rings, not too salty, not too sweet.  Amazing crunch.

There was lots of sharing during the Roadfood.com tour.  Some people loved Kelly's fried clams, some were not as impressed.

A Revere Beach institution, Kelly's has one outside wall decorated with vintage postcards that evoke summertime fun of times gone by.

Kelly's menu features Northeast seafood favorites - not just roast beef.  But, as the sign indicates, beef is king, in our experience.

Kelly's is an open-air restaurant where customers stand on the sidewalk to place their orders and get bags full of food.

A view of Kelly's from the pavilion across the streets shows what appears to be a haphazard crowd outside. While it looks chaotic, the ordering process is in fact quite efficient; and even if the crowd is large, you won't wait long for your meal.

Carry your food to these benches across the street, and you can dine with a view of the water.

Kelly's presents its meals over the counter in handsome bags. This bag is sitting on the wall of the dining pavilion with the beach in the background.
