Good home cooking for a good price

For breakfast you order directly from the cook and see it cooked right in front of you! The portions are very ample, the taste is like home-made and the prices are very reasonable... read more

We have been going to The Restaurant for many years. I almost always get the veal parm. and it is very good. My husband always seems to get steak and he likes it as well. From what I hear the breakfast is very good as well, but I have never had it there. My kids will get the burgers and... More

This is a cafe style place where you order through a line, and pick what you want. They can make you stuff as well on the spot. But overall the food is great and large portions. Management and staff are great and know the menu.

Big changes had occurred at The Restaurant recently. While breakfast and lunch were still served "cafeteria style" with special orders delivered to your table, late afternoon saw a change in that it was turned into a fancier place to eat with waitresses and a different menu and a little higher prices. The family restaurant was gone after lunch...pretty much. Earlier... More

Breakfast cafeteria style still remains their best offering. The new set up was not thought out well, the line cuts through and blocks off a couple of tables vs. the old way which was against the wall - design flaw difficult for the people eating at those tables and the people in line. The cafeteria style lunch/dinner is still good,... More

We went for dinner expecting to have some good Greek food. But no more. It is now an Italian restaurant with no cafeteria style. Now a sit down place that has a bar type atmosphere at least at dinner. Homemade pasta was good, but was looking forward to Lamb Shish Kabab.

I've been here a few times over the past few years I've lived in Woburn. The Restaurant serves cafeteria-style food, with a fairly extensive menu of rather basic items. They also serve breakfast all day. The food is solid and very reasonably priced. The way it works is you order at the counter, pay (usually you have to repeat your... More

The setup of the place is awesome. You go in and order everything that you want before you sit down, which keeps the tables constantly opening up for you. It's also very helpful when you are in a big group so you don't have to struggle trying to split up the bill after you eat. The guys behind the counter... More
