I've recently noticed the Speed's truck parked @ the Mutual Gas Station in Quincy, located at intersection of Adams St. & FBP. Yesterday morning it wasn't there so I ventured to Newmarket to try it out.
Glad I did as it was glorious, just glorious.

  1. I'd send you to the penelty box for two minuets for using a fork & knife on that dog.

      Truth be told I felt guilty using them, but I didn't want to waste any of the toppings!

        There is no shame in simply licking the wrapper. Who's going to see you out in the middle of Newmarket Square?

    2. Earlier this week, I was having a crappy day at work. I had to run an errand midday on the north shore, and it took wayyy too long. Then on my way back down the I-93 tunnel southbound, a Truck driver with Quebec plates cut me off (make up your own joke here, at least he made it over the bridge without hitting a pillar), narrowly missing me as it changed lanes at the last second. While I was thankful that it didn't kill me, it did make me miss my exit.

      Now I'm emerging from the tunnel into the usual early-afternoon logjam...PO'ed more than ever. Saw the Albany St/South Bay exit and said to myself..I deserve me a Speed's dog after all that. Waited patiently through offramp traffic then made my way to Newmarket Sq and ordered up a big fattie with everything. It was the tastiest late-lunch I've ever had. Nobody in line, easy drive back to the office afterward. Ah, fate.
