Help - need lunch place suggestion south of Boston

We're doing a road trip to North Attleboro MA returning on I95/ I93 to NH. We aren't comfortable driving into Boston, unfortunately.
I think all of us like Asian food, Mexican and just plain good food, nothing fancy.
Drive has a GPS and I'm good at navigating with Mapquest directions.

Any suggestions?

  1. Try "great chow" in north Quincy. 5 minutes just off 93 at neponset circle. High quality Chinese at reasonable prices.

      Great Chow has very good Chinese (American) food, but it's actually located in the Wollaston section of Quincy on Beale St. If you would like something more in line with what you find in Chinatown you could try East Chinatown which is on Hancock St in N. Quincy, just 5 minutes off 93 at Neponset Circle. East Chinatown also has a seafood restaurant just around the corner.

      East Chinatown Restaurant
      415 Hancock St, Quincy, MA 02171

      Great Chow
      17 Beale Street, Quincy, MA 02170

      Neponset Cafe
      497 Washington St, Canton, MA 02021

          Second Sichuan Gourmet, we have become regulars since this new Sharon location opened. Just a couple of miles off the Rt 95 exit and easy to get to, check their website for directions.

          It's not your average American style take-out, it's real Chinese gourmet food, especially good if you like spicy and flavorful dishes.

        2. Thanks for the recommendations. Unfortunately, the driver decided on a different route and we ate at (boo) Chilis ... esp sorry about that because our next stop was our first visit to H-Mart in Burlington and I think we would have enjoyed the food court but my companions were reluctant since we had never been before.
          Hope to check out the recommendations on a future road trip.
