Thank you all for your response. I posted this on chowhound and got only one answer. I apreciate your suggestions.
Is Bill and Bob’s still there?- right across the bridge, we used to go there in high school and it was good!
I second the recommendation for Dube’s on Jefferson Avenue. It’s nothing fancy, but in my opinion, they have the best seafood on the Northsore. My wife and I frequently drive there on Saturday just to get lunch (125 miles each way)…we live in Western Massachusetts.
It’s great, check it out!
This is terrible, I attended (and Graduated from) Salem State and commuted in daily for the better part of 5 years, and other than a couple of Sub shops across Loring Ave from the college I remember NOTHING !!
Well I do remember Putnam’s Pantry on RT 1 in Danvers for a great Ice Cream experience![:p]
Dubes on Jefferson Ave. in Salem has some mighty fine seafood at a very resonable price. A day trip to Salem Willows chop sewey sandwiches for a buck good for a quick lunch and as someone mentioned Reds is a local favorite. Chow Jim
Unless you have an allergy, check out Turtle Alley at the museum place. Great chocolates, including the namesake turtles…[:)]
There’s the Salem Diner, 70 Loring Ave. Not too far away is Nick’s Famous Roast Beef in Beverly. If you want to drive a little farther up route 1A, there is my former restaurant, Black Cow Tap and Grill. Get the steak tips, have Wendy make you a Bloody Mary, she makes the best! After that, I would suggest a quick trip up to Ipswich to the Clam Box. On the way back to Salem, a small detour to Essex, The Village Restaurant is very good, Woodmans is good too.
We had a great lunch at Red’s in downtown Salem. Seafood, breakfast, pasta and cheap too. There’s a Boston Hot dog franchise downtown too. Salem is also roast beef sandwich teritory (think Kelly’s in Revere) and there are several places in Salem that I didn’t get a chance to check out.
I just realised that I’ve been on your site. It’s nice. Thanks again for your help.
Thanks, that was a help. I’d like to avoid the usual fast food places for eating along the way up and now I have lots of suggestions!
I, personally, don’t know my way around Salem.
There is sure a lot along the way. Especially in Connecticut.
There was a thread about a week ago on that topic. I’ll try to dig it up.
My kids and I will be staying in Salem,Mass for a week end in October. I would love some suggestions for some good not too expensive meals.
