Fear and Loathing at Charlie’s Kitchen

This post originally appeared on Yelp. If you like my reviews, follow me for more snarky points of view.

Charlie’s is the kind of place you go to if you want to end up snorting Fireball Whiskey out of your nose at 12 am.

Pros:

  1. It’s cheap. You can get some awful burgers for around five bucks.
  2. My friend David, who was born with three livers, will remind you that this is one of the few places in Boston that you can get $4 Jameson shots.
  3. I just realized that #1 and #2 are about the place being cheap.

Cons:

  1. It’s cheap. You can get some awful burgers for around five bucks.
  2. My friend David, who was born with three livers, will remind you that this is one of the few places in Boston that you can get $4 Jameson shots.
  3. I just realized that #1 and #2 are about the place being cheap.

For a long time, Team Green Line (which was composed of two twee ultraliberal hipster girls who lived on the other side of the river with their king, David, burly Delaware man of three livers) used to argue that Charlie’s was a good spot for Team Red Line to meet up with Team Green Line. Team Red Line, being of the pinkie-pointing Harvard communist persuasion, argued that Charlie’s is a contrivance of the bourgeois, a diabolical farce designed to function in every respect like People’s Republic except the darts.

Charlie’s has lots of friendly waitresses with brightly colored hair and tattoos. I like them. I don’t ever go to the “beer garden” in the back (god almighty, what IS a beer garden? Wouldn’t it be sticky all the time?), but the second floor is sufficiently seedy; just bypass the first floor bar because it’s always cramped and it’s the main runway for the tattooed waitresses.

Honestly if you have more than $30 in your pocket you should probably go to Beat Hotel across the street.
