Name Cheap But Good Eateries...

Name your best cheap, but really good eateries in various points of New England. Joe's Spaghetti & Pizza in Northampton is such a place for me.

        Where in Maine would one find Lou's Diner?

        Lou's Diner
        100 Chestnut St, Clinton, MA 01510

      2. The taco trucks along the water/Long Wharf Rd in New Haven.
        Pho Vietnam in Danbury (but i've only had the pho & spring rolls)

        1. Ozzie's Steak and Eggs in Hinsdale, MA. They have excellent homemade hash and eggs. Top it off w/ rye toast and you have a very good breakfast.

          1. The Charcoal Chef in Woodbury has been in business for over 50 years operated by the same family and is a perennial "Best Value" Litchfield County in the CT Magazine poll. We go there for lunch often. Their Charcoal grilled chicken breast sandwich, fish sandwich and salmon burger are all excellent and $4.75 or less. Whole belly clam roll or sea scallop roll, both with very light breading, are each 6.75 and overstuffed over grilled NE rolls. Entree items are all good and reasonable. Lunch coupons are also available on

              My grandparents used to take me here after the Woodbury Tique mart back in the early-mid 1970's. Always wanted to go back but never did yet.
