Fried Ipswich or Essex Clams

Please recommend places to get the tastiest fried clams in or around Ipswich or Essex. I'm going to Massachusetts next week and would love to dine on sweet, succulent clams.
I loved the ones at the Clam Box in Ipswich. Bring a monster appetite or some friends to help you finish the food. Our surprise favorite item there were the fried scallops that we ordered in addition to the clams, and haddock, and onion rings (very good.)
Here's a link to the Chowhound "Klam Krawl Trip Report" that sent us to the Clam Box
Thanks everyone for recommending the Clam Box in Ipswich. I dined there with my family and we ordered way too many dishes - clam roll, lobster roll, 3-way combo with onion rings, fried clam platter, clam chowder. We couldn't finish everything but the food was excellent!
Thanks for recommending the Clam Box. "Bring a giant appetite" was right! We ordered way too much food: clam chowder, clam roll, lobster roll, clam platter and a clam/scallop/shrimp combo with onion rings. The eight of us wanted to sample lots of items on the menu and the food did not disappoint! Everything was delicious, though afterwards we felt a bit queasy from the oil! The place was pretty empty because of the time of year and we were able to spread out our feast over several tables and enjoy ourselves.
