Top Ten Roadside Food Stops Berkshires

OK any where on Rt. 7 or close Barrington to Williamstown
Give us your outstanding picks for street (simple) food
Clams, Rings, Burgers, Sausages (Dogs !) Masala Dosas, Shakes.
You get the idea
I'm not a Berkshire guy and I wind up with a Fribble at Friendly's
(I h a t e when that happens...)

  1. Ok, Villian. Are you saying between Great Barrington and Williamstown? Street food....Can you stop or do you like the drive thru experience? All the way up Rte 7? We have to keep you out of Friendly's and far from those Fribbles.

      Looking for Great Simple food
      Mom & Mop cafes, clam shacks,
      burger/dog joints, ethnic food emporia, sit down / or / drive thru,
      not fine dining, not pretentiosus
      but just a selective list of a couple of favorites
      anywhere along that Berkshire fault line.

      Hounds ?? are you out there?

    2. I can't say I have been to all of these, Villian but here are a few right on Route 7 on the southern end of Rte 7 that may keep you away from the fribble. All seem to be in Great Barrington.

      Rte 7 Grill. BBQ place. Big cow out front.

      Bizallians. Just past the Big Y parking lot. Poor signage but a nice place for sandwiches, soup, etc.

      Great Barrington Bagel Co. Soups and bagels. Very good.

      Aroma. Indian food. Just before the Great Barringon police station.

      Baba Louie's Pizza. The best pizza. No comparison.

      Xicohtencatl Mexican Restaurant. Mexican.

      Aegean Breeze. Greek food.

      Shiro. Japanese- sushi, etc.

      Barrington Brewery. Beer and pub food. Good beer. Lots of people, noise, kids.

      1. Martin's is a good diner in GB at the top of Railroad Street. Not fine dining, definitely not pretentious. Always crowded, good food, and cheap - my favorite weekend morning breakfast joint.

          The best for breakfast - agreed. I guess I was thinking directly on Rte 7 that was quick and easy for the Somervillain.

            Don't be deterred - it's just 1 block off the main drag :-)
