      This is the correct answer.

      But I think it has to be said: Kelly's isn't in the top 10. Probably not the top 20. There are so many other great options, as mentioned in this thread, pretty much any "Name's Roast Beef" is going to be better than Kelly's.

        I second Nicks! Its the Best roast beef on the north shore....much better then Kelly's!

              Is Village Fair North shore style RB?

              1. re: NahantNative

                Whoops, never responded to this. Yes, at least the last time I had it there (which was quite a few years ago) it was an onion roll with thin sliced RB, bbq sauce, cheese.

            2. Peters Super Beef 1484 North Shore Road
              Beachmont Roast Beef 629 Winthrop Ave
              Royal Roast Beef 752 Bennington St, East Boston
              Alamo Roast Beef 574 Broadway, Everett
              Skampa 424 Cambridge st, Cambridge

              I'd get all of these sandwiches with sauce and cheese or "three way"
