Fried Clam Combo

  • c

Met some friends for clams at Essex Seafood, my new fave, yesterday. On the way I stopped at the Agawam Diner in Rawley for slices of their creme pies to bring along for dessert. Both the fried clams and pie got high marks from my friends.

    Yay Agawam!! My wife & I have been devoted 'wam patrons since we were introduced to the place by a friend when we moved here in 85. We've allways maintained (and posted here) that their cream pies are the best we've ever found & their fried clams can hold their own with any on north shore. Try their Boiled Dinner (thurs special) and deep fried pork cutlets (ask for a pot of gravy on the side for the fries !!). Lots of other good stuff on menue, but stay away from (incredibly bland) Mac & Cheese & spagetti (though who would order spagetti in classic diner !!)

      I hate to rain on the Agawam Diner parade, but I have had some of the worst food ever at this place.

      Probably the worst fried clams I have ever had were served here.

      I find that I have time to kill in the area frequently, but after 6-7 tries, I don't eat anywhere near here unless the Clam Box is open or unless I have time to go into Ipswitch.
