City Jewel takes a quick look at various places from around the country.
Restaurant: Charlie's Sandwich Shoppe
Location: 429 Columbus Ave.
Restaurant Size: Smallish. Went there for breakfast and had to sit at the bar. I was there by myself so sitting at the bar was perfect. It gives me a great view of the cooking action.
Specialty: Turkey Hash...this was awesome. I'd never eaten anything like it for breakfast. The ground turkey worked well with the eggs and potatoes. Think it was like $6. This place just screams old school Boston...with local sports memorabilia all over the walls. Given the name, I also take it Charlie's makes a good sandwich.
Chance of getting food poisoning: LOW. The place isn't going to win any awards for cleanliness, but what diner is? It was nice enough, and the food was outstanding.
