We are taking a mini vacation with our 14, 11 and 9 year olds. What restaurants between Foxboro and Boston would you all recommend out there that aren't ridiculously expensive and not your typical chain (like Ruby Tuesday's, TGIF, Applebee's etc). Thanks!

Thinking in teen mode:
CBS Scene at Patriot's Place- I haven't been but looks like a fun spot for the kids. Mine like to hit Red Robin when we are out that way. We don't have any chain restaurants around so to my kids that's a treat. LOL

Sullivan's out at Castle Island. Best spot in all of Boston for a good cheap dinner. You won't get anything healthy there but it's a Southie landmark. Grab a spot on the hill, watch the action out in the Sugar Bowl and enjoy. Take a walk around Fort Independence and watch the planes land and take off from Logan.

Olympian Diner off route 3 in Braintree. Good, cheap, diner food.

Fanueil Hall. Not the cheapest option but a fun place to grab something and sit and people watch. It's an experience.

Would you go IN Boston? Durgin Park is an experience that shouldn't be missed for teens in Boston. That's right in Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall which you'll certainly visit while in Boston. Also, the Black Rose is a fairly legitimate Irish Pub (excellent food) over there as well.

In the 'burbs, I don't know. Skipjack's is OK at Patriot Place. CBS Scene is like the CBS version of ESPNZone (think Big TVs, giant beers, decent but overpriced pub food). I think teens would enjoy it. It's also overlooking Gillette Stadium which is cool too.

We will be going into Boston at least once, so these suggestions are great. Thank you so much...going to check them out online so I can get an address for our GPS.

Consider the Union Oyster House in downtown Boston- I think it's the oldest restaurant in the area (or in the country?) and the oyster bar stools are the originals from the colonial days. There's a gift shoppe with stuff that teens might like.

Thanks! We did the Olympian Diner in Braintree and it was so good...had to pay cash but they had an ATM there. When we go back into Boston, we may try some of the other suggestions.

Oh no. So sorry I forgot to mention the cash only but glad you enjoyed it.
