Cambridge Common Restaurant Review

: It should come as no surprise that Cambridge Common is favored by Harvard and Porter Square denizens. The come-as-you-are atmosphere features neon beer signs and wooden booths. And even though common wings, quarter pound burgers (available for less than $5) and brews (30 on tap with 16 constantly rotating) are its stock-in-trade, the Common at its best does them uncommonly well: fried dill pickle spears made with a beer batter and mac ‘n’ cheese bites. Stick-to-your-ribs entrées include creamy chicken potpie and a black bean burger topped with cheddar. After dinner, you can head downstairs to the Lizard Lounge to bump-and-grind the calories away to the nightly live entertainment (cover charges vary).
