regina's in allston....alternative?
So nobody thinks allston is worth visiting. Our problem is we are cutting it close for our Logan flight and are driving from the Berkshires via 90. Any sterling alternatives near 90?
Allston has tons of ethnic places right near the Regina's that are far superior (though Regina's does have parking). Another alternative would be BT's Smokehouse in Sturbridge, easy on and off 90 on Route 20.
and another vote for BT -- up main street, sturbridge exit, call ahead and order, find them online - tell them you have to make a flight (they can be crowded and slow otherwise) - best bq in NE.
If that's worrisome on the time, if you like greek/middle eastern, Esperia on Washington and market, has parking, off watertown exit into brighton and back on 90 to airport - excellent lamb and the best tzatziki. Shanghai Gate or JoJo Taipei few minutes from cambridge/brighton exit for 90 - both excellent
Someone on the other thread where you asked if the Allston Regina's is worthy mentioned Santarpio's in East Boston. If you're looking for a classic Boston pizza experience, it would be worth a stop. Santarpio's is often mentioned in the same breath as Regina. It's very near the airport.
A search of the board will turn up lots of lively comparisons.
The Max and Leo's suggestion in the other thread is a really good idea, I wrote a review of it just after they opened:
There is almost always parking behind the restaurant and Buff's is a good place for drinks and wings.
Getiing back on the pike right there you can make the airport in 30 minutes (20 if youre lucky)
I'll make it a unanimous vote BT's for BBQ if that's what you want. Very good pizza at North End Treats at exit 13 in Framingham.
