Bukowski Tavern, Boston, MA

Bukowski Tavern Restaurant Review

: If Bukowski fell over in one direction, it would land in the middle of the Massachusetts Turnpike, but if it toppled the other way, it would block traffic in a parking garage. From such an odd perch, this tiny bar, given its namesake, focuses on beers with more than 100 brews available. And while you can still find a plate of greasy onion rings, a platter of nachos, and the locally famous White Trash Cheese Dip (made with American cheese, chili peppers, jalapeƱos, tomatoes and onions), there are also some surprising finds. For example, the curried cranberry chicken salad sandwich served on toasted sourdough and the caprese sandwich, a light touch. We prefer to stick to the originals that put Bukowski on the map, however, like the Trailer Park Steak and Cheese sandwich or the Chili Cheese Mad Dog.
