After the Ride: Local Favorites

Blue Ribbon BBQ Truck Good BBQ and they have some personality, instead of just slopping it on your plate without a word.
Mandarin Cuisine Get the chicken wings and crab Rangoon. Thank me later. The best Chinese food in the area!!!!!
238 Highland Ave, Needham MA — (781) 455-8801
Cafe Fresh Bagel Very good bagels. Try turkey and cheese on whole wheat!
896 Highland Ave, Needham MA — (781) 444-7444
The Bagel Place The "Triple Double" bagel sandwich is the best way to start your day. They have baked goods too which are always packaged with care along with their always fresh bagels.
300 Needham St, Newton MA — (617) 467-4244
Mighty Subs The hot subs (meatball, chicken parm, steak and cheese) are the true stars of the sub menu.
250 Highland Ave, Needham MA — (781) 444-9610
French Press Bakery & Cafe Good coffee, espresso and pastries. The interior decor is cute and they have a large central table and a bar which provides space for laptop or other work. However it's definitely pricey.
74 Chapel St, Needham MA — (781) 400-2660
New England Soup Factory Besides delicious soups that rotate daily, the newly opened rotisserie chicken area is a must-try and offers an amazing side dish selection!
244 Needham St, Newton MA — (617) 558-9988
Sweet Basil This is my favorite restaurant in all of suburban boston. Baked brie is delicious.
Masala Art Portions are way too small. One piece of naan per serving!?!? Wtf
The Center Cafe Excellent: sole, trout, brownie sundae, vanilla creme brulee. Even better: the staff felt like old friends and went above and beyond. Continually surprised us - didn't want the evening to end.
The Rice Barn Modern take on Thai cuisine in Needham. Everything was fresh and the service was attentive. I ordered the mushroom wrap and it was very tasty and healthy. Also, this place is "gluten-free."
Comella's Needham This is a great place - Needham needed this restaurant! Great red sauce and the Mess is a must try. They should take the grilled chicken off the menu for takeout - it ends up being too dry.
Jean and Lee Kitchen Great pork and chive dumplings Taiwanese sausage
108 Oak St, Newton MA — (617) 558-2888
The Biltmore Bar & Grille Fried chicken and waffles. Nuff said
1205 Chestnut St, Newton MA — (617) 527-2550
b.good I am a fan of their Turkey burgers, have had them a variety of ways. There is a vegetarian burger as well. Quality ingredients, flavorful eats.
Farm Grill and Rottiserie (Best of Boston 2013-GREEK) Improper Bostonian says, "A gyro crammed with bronzed, juicy meat, roasted on all sides in a vertical rotisserie, and sliced into a grilled pita pouch. This is Farm Grill."
40 Needham St, Newton MA — (617) 964-7766
Walnut Grille The sweet potato fries are awesome!
1203 Walnut St, Newton MA — (617) 964-1029
Al-Wadi Get the hummus & falafel appetizers!
Dunkin' Donuts If you have change, consider Giving Big to the Pig! The change jar is right in front of the register. Turn your spare change into an even better Babson experience for all!
