Yes, it’s everything you hear and more—well worth the toll fare and general sense of displacement. The century-old East Boston legend, once a bakery, serves the best cheese pizza in town with a side of nonpareil people-watching. Knock it off with the schmancy craft beers and order a Bud Light already; the atmosphere demands it, and besides, you get carded no matter what. Just remember to hit the ATM beforehand, since it’s cash only.
