Belle Isle Seafood. Galley Diner. Rondo's.

    Splitting hairs about Southie restaurants is like having a serious discussion about which kindergartener made the best drawing of her dog.

      Been to Galley twice, about a year ago. Great old fashioned vibe, but the food is very pedestrian.

      I prefer "My Diner" when I need that kind of food in Southie. On "A" Street, a couple blocks northeast of B'way

        My Diner is attached to the Willams Tavern (aka Dirty Bills) which everyone should experience at least once.

        I like Muls, myself.

          Muls is fine, if you're a newbie to Southie. ;)

            Not a newbie or a yuppy. I just like it.

        Rondo's is one of the better steak and cheeses in the area, in my opinion. Galley is still there and a great dive/ diner! I've only had breakfast there, but it's been good every time. I love a breakfast spot with kielbasa!

          Rondos is still there but I haven't been in years.

          Galley is still there and was featured on Bourdain's "No Reservations"

          As MC pointed out, Belle Isle isn't in Southie.

            Haven't been to Galley. I'd call Rondo's a decent sub shop, based on a visit a few years ago. Belle Isle is in Winthrop, an outstanding local fish market and counter-service seafood place (great lobster roll, for one), though I haven't visited it since it moved across the bridge from Eastie recently.
