Woburn, Massachusetts - places to eat

  • s
  • 8

I will be in Woburn on business for a few days this week.

Could you all recommend some local places to eat, excluding national chains and the like.

I would particularly like recommendations for medium priced Italian food, Brazilian, and a Jewish deli if one exists out there.

We will have an auto so we are not limited to the immediate area of our hotel

Thanks in advance

  1. Try Angelo's in Stoneham. I think it's on Rt 28? youre concierge will know. Great italian lunch. My husband goes there when he's on business in the area. Dinner is more high end and highly recomended. Goodluck

    1. Woburn is 10-15 minutes away from Boston in non-rush hour traffic. And that is close to the best advice you will get re: "Woburn - places to eat".

      1. The part of Woburn (by the way, pronounced Woo-buhn) you are likely to be in is not exactly thick with exciting dining possibilities. Nearby towns have some nice places, like Angelo's in Stoneham, Ristorante Molise in Wakefield, Turner's Seafood in Melrose, etc. More distant climes, like Cambridge and Gloucester, are the local Portuguese population centers, but nothing close to you that I recall off the top of my head. How close Boston is depends entirely on traffic -- anywhere from 20 minutes upwards....inbound traffic in the evening can be as bad as in the morning.

          For lunch you should try a place called David's World Famous. It's located on Commerce Way. They roast all there meats daily and fresh bake breads daily. Personally I love the chicken salad myself.

          these people don't know what they're talking about. For italian my suggestion is to go to Polcaris on Montvale Ave. It's part of a small chain but very good. Another little restaraunt is 315 Main. Location is also the name of the restaraunt. Very very good and dependable. Also try South End Cafe on Main Street. Also very good for lunch!!!

            POLCARIES IS THE WORST SERVICE NORTH OF BOSTON I ALREADY WROTE THE A LETTER, I WAITED 45 MIN JUST TO SEE A WAITER. POLCARIS IN SALEM NH MAKES THEM LOOK SICK JIMBO

          2. Cafe Amalfi located in Woburn square.At the corner of Montvale Ave.Has very good Italian food menu.It also serves pizza.Beer and Wine is also available.
