It's a roast beef joint, so I had to order roast beef. The girl at the counter was not really able to describe my sandwich very well, but I ordered it, along with a tossed salad, anyhow. The roast beef was quite tasty, although really, it was too big and I ended up not eating all of it. The salad... More

I have been going to Kelly's all of my life. I have mostly gone to the one at Revere Beach. Part of the fun was eating outside on the benches or on the beach itself. It is still my favorite Kelly's. I have been to all of them except for the one in Natick. I have only been to the... More

Kelly's has been a favorite for many years, but more recently they raised the prices and cut back the portions. People didn't go here for low prices, but they did have a strong connection to the generous portions, which along with the product quality made them famous. I and others miss you old Kelly's of not so very long ago.... More

I have been to a few of their locations over the many many years. We had our usual fried whole belly clams, scallops, onion rings and fries. Price was reasonable for the quantity provided, however the quality did not meet the usual Kellys I have had so many times in the past. The food was extremely greasy, the french fries... More

For the type of food it's the best. I have visited most if not all Kelly' Roast Beef. As. Child going back 50+ years I would visit the Original Kelly' every time we would go to the beach.

There's nothing special about this place unless you want to eat late - they're open and have a drive through. Good onion rings, very thin chowder, average burgers and subs - but good enough greasy food if that's what you're in the mood for.

Decided to swing by the drive thru one day and ordered a small order of fried scallops. The best stop I had in a long time! They were cooked to perfection and they were an ample amount in the order! Would go back soon again!!

When I came to this place with a friend in June, it was incredible! We got clam chowder, fried clams, fried onion rings, French fries, a lobster roll, a roast beef sandwich, and a roast beef and cheddar with BBQ sandwich. The clams were freshly fried and everything I'd hoped they would be and MORE! Perfection! The onion ring batter... More

I love Kelly's, it's a little pricier than your other local roast beef joints but it's worth it. Of course the roast beef sandwiches are delicious but there are many other items on the menu that are worth getting. To list a few are the cheeseburger, reuben, lobster roll, and the best grilled cheese sandwich I've ever had.
