We recently spent the afternoon in Boston. Of course, we had to stop for lunch. We chose Rattlesnake. It had seating inside or outside but it also had my favorite type of seating too. It’s right by huge doors that open up so you’re still inside but you’re almost outside – it’s like the best of both worlds!
The service was super friendly. The waitress knew about everything on the menu and described it in a down-to-earth way. You know, like she’s your friend just telling you what about the food and what she likes. I like that – not to haughty but knowledge about the food.
We started with an appetizer, the grilled avocado with lobster salad. It was a little odd. The lobster salad was great. The grilled avocado was weird. For $15, I don’t want weird – I want awesome. It was a miss for us.
My daughter is on a hot dog kick. This kid’s meal came with TWO hot dogs. Needless to say, she loved the place!
My son got the macaroni and cheese (with bacon). You can’t go wrong with that, right? Wrong. It tasted odd to me and my son. My husband though, thought it was fine.
My husband got the award-winning fish tacos. They were awesome.
I got the spicy cubano tacos. Now, the waitress told me they were spicy. She gave it an 8 out of 10 but she loved it. I was going to pass then. I like spicy but an 8 out of 10 is beyond me. My husband stepped in and said, “Try it. We can split the fish tacos and pork tacos. It’ll be good.”
Famous last words.
Those pork tacos are spicy! You get three (very generous) and I could only eat half of one! My mouth was numb and my nose was running. My husband didn’t think they were too bad until he got through three quarters of one. Then he felt the same.
When I mentioned the rating, he said he hadn’t heard her say that!!! OMG, really!!??
So in the end, my husband had an awesome meal. He ate a pork taco, two fish tacos, and most of my son’s macaroni and cheese! My son and I were hungry within an hour.
If you like spicy, you should try it.
