Restaurant Roundup: The Pour House

Truthfully, we ended up at The Pour House thanks to Google Maps.  While hanging around Boston one day, our original restaurant choice was - alas! - only serving brunch.  Not being in the brunching mood, I searched a minute on my phone and, based on the name alone, decided to check it out.  Still, we were a bit hesitant because, for some reason, the Google listing said it had a "Middle Eastern" theme to it.

Well, I'm glad that we went anyway because that was very untrue.  (Not that I am hatin' on Middle Eastern cuisine at all.  We just weren't in the mood for it.)  The menu had a pretty typical set of options - burgers, sandwiches, wings - and a Mexican section.  Check out this insane mountain of nachos that we got!

In other words, my favorite kinds of bar food...and did I mention the beer?  PBR on draft!  I was psyched!  Somehow, I can't pry myself away from my cheap swill but Pour House does offer less crappy beer and they have a full bar (three, actually).  :)

On Saturdays and Sundays, brunch is served until 3pm.  I haven't tried anything yet but all the passing plates looked yummy.  I am drooling over their Super Homefries - homefries grilled with bacon, sausage and cheddar and then covered with three eggs and toast. I can feel my arteries yelling at me already but everything yummy about breakfast on one plate?  Sounds too good to be true haha!

I was even more psyched when I noticed that the prices were damn cheap too.  Prices tend to be higher in the city, ya know?  If you wanna save even more money, check out their daily specials, such as half priced burgers on Saturday nights (6pm-10pm).  Oh, and the atmosphere was fun.  Lots of crazy shit hanging on the walls to look at, including graffiti.  All in all, the Pour House is definitely a great place to meet up with friends and hang out.  I wish I lived a bit closer.  ;)

The Pour House is located at 907 Boylston Street, Boston MA.


  1. That is a HUGE mound of nachos! It would make the perfect midnight snack :)
