Frozen Mudslides?

These dog days of Summer occasionally awaken a craving within for frozen mudslides. I'm surprised how difficult they are to find here in town. I live just outside Roslindale Village and it seems my best close option is Bertucci's on the VFW Parkway. Not exactly what I was looking for. Where do you go for your frozen glasses of goodness?

  1. Hmm. I'd look for casual dining chains and places catering to a younger crowd, like The Living Room, Sunset Grill, TGI Friday's, Applebee's, McCormick & Schmick's, California Pizza Kitchen, and maybe some of the FiDi pubs. Outside of town, The Raw Bar is Mashpee does them.

    1. I think Scampo does an alcoholic version...

      1. I always get them at Marina Bay and they're excellent.....especially after a day of boating.

          Marina Bay is a little vague, how about sharing; Port 305, Fishbones, Siros, Chanty or the Ocean Club? I've been especially partial to Port 305 these days but haven't tried the mudslide. However, to get back to the original poster, Jimmy at Sonnys, in the Adams Village section of Dorchester, makes an amazing frozen mudslide.

            Port 305. Unfortunatly, Siros doesn't have frozen drinks. Fishbones is good too. I haven't been to the Chanty for a while because I like having a view. I haven't been to the Ocean Club either.

              I'm too old for the Ocean Club, but I really enjoy Port 305. The fried clams are incredible. Maybe I'll try a mudslide tomorrow since I have an appt at Arias which is right there. Thanks for the update.

                  Just as an update, it was so hot out, I still didn't try the mudslide, but I can say that the white sangria was totally refreshing and the lobster sliders were good as well. Since I'm on vacation next week I plan to try the mudslide and report back

              2. re: catsmeow

                avoid fishbones. we ordered 2 frozen margaritas and were handed 2 plastic cups of cubed ice and sour mix, virtually no tequila, and one of which had old mint at the bottom. gross.

          2. I'd be searching for the Russian Qualude - it has been very many years.

            1. Rum Point, Grand Cayman.....

              Seriously - they are so easy to make, do them at home. Fill the blender about 3/4 with ice. Add 6 shots of regular Stoli, 2 shots of Bailey's, and 2 shots of Kahlua. Blend until smooth. Pour. Drink.

              1. Get into a time machine, go to Wellfleet, MA circa 1994 and go to the Beachcomber. Man they were good. Used to have frozen drink machines full of mudslides. Now they still make em, and the comber is still great, but the mudslides aren't. Now they use a blender and that Island Oasis mix crud and it's not the same.

                Aaaaaaah the comber after a day at the beach.

                  While we are on the outer cape, circa 1994, gotta add Euro in Provincetown, upstairs on the deck. Ah, memories.

                  1. re: StriperGuy

                    If we're stepping into the time machine, Sabina Doyle's, Newport, late '90s, early aughts.

                    To Food4Thought: Thanks for the Red Hat tip! And Niblet for the confirm! I want one now. But, is ambiance ever high on the list of someone seeking Mudslides? "Yes, I'd like the 9 course tasting menu, but first a Mudslide, please." More like, "Oops, I just crapped my pants. Well, we're just going to get Mudslides, anyway."

                        Don't you mean "Pho Sho"?

                  2. As long as ambiance is not high on your list, the Mudslides @ Red Hat are pretty tasty and strong. Made old school with the ingredients that steve999 mentions and none of that Island Oasis type dreck

                        Add me to the Red Hat list. Back in the day you could get pitchers of them.

                          My thoughts exactly; Red Hat. I think they were made with ice cream and $17.50 a pitcher.

                            Whew, pitcher of mudslides, whew.

                        2. re: Food4Thought

                          Oh yes - the Red Hat was the place for mudslide pitchers for me in the roaring 90s. I remember going there for lunch on my last day of work at a horrible law firm - returning to my desk was a big mistake.

                          Do they still have pitchers? I could go for one right now.

                            10:00am mudslide pitchers. Nice.

                              I'm all about the classiness

                                I just swung by the Red Hat thinking you were gonna be there. Thought you'd need some help. Oh well, next time.

                                  Dang - I would have totally gone for a pitcher and burger. Ended up at Taiwan Cafe instead.

                            2. re: nsenada

                              They def still do the pitchers of mudslides and a few other frozen ones if I recall.

                                Is any of the food worthwhile?

                                Frozen drink list here:

                          2. Just go to Drink and get a coffee flip.
