Just a Hot Dog.... this time!

Kelly's is famous for their Roast Beef sandwiches. This trip wasn't to the original Revere Beach location but in Danvers, MA. No ambiance with the seagulls. Just a couple of Hot Dogs on a buttered New England Hot Dog Roll with mustard & relish. They are getting a little more expensive these days... read more

I was at the Lahey Clinic and Kelly's Roast Beef was recommended. It was a Ta-Da, wet roast beef pilled high on a fresh bun. We shared an order of onion rings. We were stuffed. I wanted to try their chowder but, their sandwich filled me up. The lady manager suggest I buy a quart of cold chowder, then I... More

We were driving by and decided to stop. The roast beef sandwiches were very good. My son had the pastrami sandwich and he said it was good. The prices were reasonable. The staff, there was a lot of them, were young, and friendly. I would like to go back and try something different.

Very friendly place! The food is the top of the line fast food but its really just a good restaurant with a drive through. Great all around! I went for the surf and turf for the first time and can't believe I haven't gotten this before it is so good! I was staying at the Courtyard and there are 25... More

A landmark on Revere Beach, this institution has expanded it's brand to the suburbs, as well as it's menu. The staples are the classic thin sliced quality roast beef sandwich on a grilled roll (the large can feed 2!), Fried large full belly Clams with the BEST Tartar Sauce you'll find, giant freshly made real lobster rolls, and classic hamburgers...

Although the Danvers location does not have the history that the Revere Beach location has, The Danvers location does have a nice new fish tank for all to view. For families who have kids, the fish tank and free wifi are great distractions while your food is being prepared. If you are uncertain what to get, there really aren't any... More

I wanted to like Kelly's because it seems to be an institution in this area, but the roast beef was dry and tasteless, and the onion rings were a huge disappointment. I won't be back.

I remember the first Kelly's in Revere back in the 60s . Then I moved away. I've come back and wow! has Kelly's evolved into something great. The roast beef has always been the star, but is now rivalled by the clams, scallops and shrimp plates. The refillable soft drinks come with 100 assorted flavours to choose from. I can't... More

I concur with others who recommend the seafood here. The coating is crispy and the fish is moist and tender. The portions are huge, so be prepared to share or take some home. As for the Roast Beef, it's good, but not the best. If you want a truly great roast beef sandwich head into Danvers center to Supreme Roast... More
