So Anime Boston has arrived once again. Here is the question though, where do you recommend eating at. Post your local eating spots here, so we don;t have to eat the same crap in the providence food court.

Thortons!
Diagonally across from the Cheesecakefactory/pru T line entrance of the prudential center. It's cheap! It's good! It's American comfort food.

The Pour House on Boylston Street.

On Sat. nights they have 1/2 price burgers from 6PM-10PM, and their breakfast/brunch is excellent, too. They also have 1/2 price chicken sandwiches on Wed. nights from 6PM-10PM, and 1/2 price Mexican food on Thurs. nights from 6PM-10PM. ALL their food is great. :) :)

It also has the benefit of being almost directly across the street from the Hynes.

If you haven't been to the Hynes Cafeteria (1st Floor), they sell smoked Turkey legs ($10 each). Holy hell. I mustered up the discipline to only buy one yesterday afternoon. I have my new daily fix at Con now LOL.I'll take a picture the next time I get one.

...That and maybe 3 other stuff on the menu are worth going to the Hynes Cafeteria for despite the pricing. Pizza's a definite pass. Assume's been sitting there for a while unless you see them put it out when you get there. The burgers, hot dogs and fries are sold fast enough to say they'll be fresh you when get to them. The premade salads are good for the day. Bottled drinks...goes without saying (LOL).

The taco bowls were their bestseller yesterday according to the shift manager I talked to. Second were the Asian bowls followed by French Fry Cups in Third.

If you want better, go elsewhere. Goes without saying. Because of the weather and especially because of the security checkpoints, more and more folks are electing to bite the bullet and buy food in the Hynes. Aside from the main cafeteria there are food stalls set up on both ends of the second floor and in the hallway of the third floor where the Video Game Room is. They sell burgers, hot dogs and salads prepared in the cafeteria as well as drinks.
