Oh please Arby's...

The closest Arby's is out in Marlborough.. we need a metro Boston Arby's.. oh, thinly sliced mostly-real-meat sandwiches, they are an dark craving that is presently too hard to satisfy..

  1. I always think of Milhouse: "I'm so hungry, I could eat at Arby's."

        Once upon a time the Central Square location where Rendezvous was/is used to be a Jack in the Box (and later a Burger King).

        1. re: Blumie

          Way way WAY once upon a time there was a Jack in the Box in Union Square Allston, behind Twin Donut.

          1. re: Allstonian

            I remember one in Plaistow, NH back in the 70's

            1. re: Infomaniac

              And in Taunton, Mass. Ah, a Breakfast Jack at midnight.

            2. re: Allstonian

              There was one in Stoneham on Rt 28 near Rapid Liquors in the late '70s. Too many drunken, late night, taco eating contests.

              1. re: BillB656

                I remember that one. We used to say nasty things to the clown.

            3. re: Blumie

              In the late 60s early 70s there was a Jack in the Box in Watertown, Coolidge Square. It's a 7-eleven now.

            4. re: Infomaniac

              I never even dared to dream of a Boston-area Jack In The Box. The Sourdough Jack was my favorite late-night studying fuel in college. Mmmmmmmm....

              1. re: Infomaniac

                I want to try the new Buttery Jack.

                Oh that burger cooked in garlic butter

                sounds like heaven to me.

                1. re: Infomaniac

                  We were in Orange County last week, couldn't believe how many Jack in the Box's (and Carl's Jr.) there were. So many more than McD's, Wendys and BK like we're surrounded by.

                  Last Jack I recall around here was Rt. 9 Eastbound on the Natick/Framingham line.

                  1. re: L2k

                    There are lots of Carl's Jr.In the San Joaquin County.

                  2. re: Infomaniac

                    On Long Island, where I grew up, there was some sort of partnership or buyout with Arby's and Jack in the Box, and our local Arby's (where one of my best friends worked) had roast beed and tacos. After seeing what my friend did with the roast beef, I never ate one of those sandwiches, but he would make me these tacos that were loaded up with everything, and got me on the taco lover bandwagon.

                  3. My wish is for a Coney Island hot dog stand in town.

                      I didn't realize there were none. Growing up in Detroit, you couldn't avoid them. Now I want one.

                          1. re: MC Slim JB

                            Closer to home, Spalla's in Natick has a Coney Island dog on the menu. Casey's too, I think.

                            1. re: Chris VR

                              If Casey's has Coney Island dogs that is news to me. Nothing on their menu about it or even any chili for that matter.

                              1. re: Gordough

                                You're right, I looked on their site but couldn't find the menu anywhere.

                      1. Potato cakes. I want them in my face. With horsey sauce.

                        1. Isn't there one in West Roxbury on route 1, just before the Dedham mall?

                            That one closed several years ago.
