Looks can be deceiving at times and some of the smallest, hole-in-the-wall eateries offer the best food. Bay State diners do not always have to visit a fancy, overpriced restaurant to dine on their favorite cuisine. In fact, there are several tiny restaurants in Massachusetts where the food is just as good, if not better than what you’ll find at a larger establishment. Here are 3 suggestions that will bring you a lively and rewarding experience for breakfast, lunch or dinner (Your choice)
