Dating back to 1903, East Boston's most legendary spot continues to serve one of the best pizzas in town. The old-school, thin crust pies come in only one size, with a basic assortment of toppings (highlighted by homemade sausage). Once a bakery, the low-key environs offer a view into the Eastie of yesteryear. Generations of regulars stop in for cheap domestic beers, and some skip the pizzas in favor of steak tips, which are grilled on skewers right by the entrance. Prices are kept low in part due to the cash-only policy; fortunately, there's an ATM on-site.
