- Chili/chili cheese fries at Soulfire in Allston. Hands down the best chili Ive had in the area and the rest of the menu is killer too.
- $1 burgers at The avenue in Allston. Special is every Monday, usually their burgers are around 3.50, an extra buck for fries/sweet potato tots and are the real deal. They have a killer beer selection too and the prices are much better than anywhere else in town.
Arepas at Orinoco in Brookline Village. Good, reasonably priced and a cocktail menu thats a little different.
The BBQ sauces at Soulfire in Allston are hands down the best around IMO, delicious, varied and fresh.
