THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Hungry Herb's Restaurant Review

: Carpenters, sophomores, jocks, coaches, bond salesmen---everybody who’s lucky enough to be in-the-know comes to Hungry Herb’s. Many people come for Herb himself, a bearded nose guard of a man full of joie de vivre and probably a few orders of his legendary steak tips. Since 1987, he has been doing for tips what Pedro Martinez has done for the Sox: Made them respectable again. From behind the Formica deli counter, he offers hundreds of sandwiches, which are cheekily named and smartly conceived. These are quick bites with a college education and a culinary degree. Meat is pretty much the order of the day. Sweet Georgia Blues twirls honey, barbecue, teriyaki steak tips, three cheeses, and bacon into a brutish ballet on a bun. Caesar steak tips are also a funky riff on a classic, seared steak in a cloak of Caesar dressing. Chicken tips get tweaked with equal abandon. Try the chicken tip, sausage, and provolone Ballpark combo. The veggie-centric crowd shouldn’t be put off by the vast amounts of flesh on the menu. Let’s put it this way: Even Herb wholeheartedly recommends an Eggplant sub (and fries) to many a patron. Call it the spirit of tips.
