Between Boston and the Cape?

I'm flying into BOS around 9pm on Thursday night before driving up to the Cape (Wellfleet to be specific).

Is there anywhere inspired to stop on the way to eat other than the highway choices?

  1. What kind of food are you looking for?

    When we stop en route to the Cape, we stop at Wood's in Plymouth for Lobster Rolls (right on the pier, next to Lobster Hut and CabbyShack).

    There's lots of Cape Cod suggestions on the Southern New England board here, too.

      Less about the type of food and more what's available given the time range on a Thursday night. I'm driving up to the Cape that night.

        Eat at Santarpio's before you go into the tunnel. Mixed grill, pizza, and a carafe should do you well for the drive down the cape.

        Wood's is a great suggestion, but sadly I called and they close at 9pm.

        1. Normally, I'd reccommend the Tuscany Tavern on Rte. 3A, north of Plymouth Center. Great Italian food prepared by two women in a small open kitchen. But be warned, if you are arriving at 9 pm, no restaurants will be open by the time you get out of baggage claim at Logan. They are the slowest, it will be 9:45 (at least) before your bags get to you. Plus, you have 2 more hours to Wellfleet.

          1. You are going to be hard pressed to find ANYWHERE open by the time you get out of Logan. This is Boston after all and us Yankee's like to be home in bed by 10:00 so we are forced to eat early in the day! LOL!!!

              Exit 18 in Weymouth... 24 hour McDonald's drive-thru. I'm just saying.

            2. Since you may not be out of Logan much before 9:30 or 10, I'd say maybe hit Victoria's Diner, which is just off the Expressway (Mass. Ave. exit) immediately south of downtown Boston. They are open all night long on Thursdays, and the food is generally very good.

                kevinricci is correct, Logan baggage handling is ridiculously slow. As are Logan car rentals. You will be lucky to be on your way before 11, so an all-night diner may be exactly what is required. Or Chinatown - New Jumbo Seafood is open late.
