Some Cheap Eats Reviews (Pourhouse and Rosebud Diner)


Category : , , ,


Located on Boylston, Pourhouse boasts cheap eats and cheap beers. The specials changes daily, and on the night we went (Thursday) it was border bargains. All their Mexican dishes were half off. We both went with the soft tacos and two large beers. The tacos weren't anything special, but weren't bad either. They had decent enough flavor, but they were what you'd expect for $3.50 tacos at a bar. The rice and beans were fairly standard as well. The best part of the meal was definitely the price. For having two beers each and dinner, we were able to enjoy dinner without breaking the bank. Pourhouse is a good spot to go when you are looking for cheap eats and a good cold beer. I give Pourhouse a 3 and 1/2 out of 5.

Rosebud Diner

Rosebud Diner can't be missed when driving around Davis Square. It's the large classic dining cart. We sat in a booth that had all their reviews and awards displayed above us. The menu has all the normal diner items (club sandwiches, burgers, etc) and there was Harpoon beer on tap. I went with the bacon burger and Abby went with the BBQ burger. Both were alright, with the burger being slightly dry. Abby's went with the potato wedges as fries and really liked them, but my fries were kinda bland and needed some seasoning. The prices throughout the menu were really good though. Burgers and sandwiches $7 or less. Entrees for $10 and less. The waitress was the type you'd expect at a diner: a little older and sassy. The dessert menu looked good too, but we were so full that we didn't get the Boston Cream Pie that I wanted. I'd like to give this place a try for breakfast, but for dinner it was just ok. I give Rosebud Diner a 3 out of 5.
