Anything worth eating in Brockton?

My office just got relocated to Brockton. Despite the horrific commute, I'm trying to look on the bright side of things. Maybe there is some good food to try in the area?I haven't had much time to poke around. Any suggestions for lunch or something? Thanks!

  1. depends where your office is. You can try christos for pizza and salad. Italian kitchen on main st. West side pizza is really good. whites has a lunch menu now. pasta bene when open. chinatown near stoughton has good chinese. tons of chains if you don't mind them on belmont.

    1. There are some restaurants for the immigrant community. I had no idea what the menu said, or exactly what I ate, but had some good food at "Restaurants Luanda, 453 Centre Street", presumably it was Angolan food. Also "Ram's Roti, 27 Pleasant Street" does good Caribbean style Indian food.

        Second Ram's Roti. There is a small Haitian bakery that sells inexpensive Haitian meat and fish pastries.

      2. I had a good meal at this place once:

        Brazil On the Grill
        696 Crescent St, Brockton, MA 02302

          right next to Brazil Grill is Burito Wraps Mexican Grille. It's decent if not entierly authentic mexican food. Same owners as Cancun in Kingston and i believe they have a second outpost on the southside of Brockton. Pretty good greasy chile relleno.

        2. Frank's is a dive of a place that makes rock star hot dogs (butter grilled, both natural casing hot dog & bun.) - "foot long" (in regular buns, so they seem bigger.) Other good looking things include chicken baskets, thin patty burgers, seafood platters, crinkle cut fries, and I think lime rickeys.

            Heh, thanks for bringing back memories of an interesting food trip, Bob. BTW, is it true what they say about the ownership of Frank's? Same people folks next door?

                You're gonna make a lotta orphans really happy!

          2. The Lobster Hut, across from Christo's, is OK although I haven't been there in a while. They have decent fried clams and seafood.

              Lobster Hut is really hit or miss and the Brockton outpost isn't nearly as fresh or consistent as its sister restaurant in Plymouth. But, yes, their fried clams and onion rings are pretty good overall.
