What Fast Food Should Be

Kelly's is by far the best for fast food take-out, especially if you care about variety, flavor, and quality. Roast Beef, Fried Seafood, and Burgers are tender, flavorful, and well prepared. We enjoy the Surf and Turf; a juicy stack of roast beef on a bun, and a hotdog bun overstuffed with sweet... read more

Fish plate - fish was curled up therefore the batter and inside of the fish was not cooked properly Clam plate - batter on the clams was not done very well and didn't taste right. The onion rings were well done.... More

This defines a great meal of the day ( calorie wise ), but epitomizes the potential for overindulgence in terms of caloric intake and need. Having said that, Great to good roast beef sandwiches and other fried specialties. You will not regret your choice other than how much you choose to ingest. Great hangover food - lol!

The Roast Beef here is still awesome, unfortunately the seafood is not very good. There are much better local places to get better seafood for a better value.

We stopped here on our way home after a trip into the city. The food was OK, the restaurant was clean and very busy. I had a chicken sandwich that was reasonably priced at $7.50. My husband had a clam plate which, in my opinion, was over priced at $22.95. He said his food was good and that the portion... More

What can I say differently. Everything you order is fresh and excellent. There's not much more to say.

I have been going to Kelly's for a number of years and have only had a roast beef sandwich twice. The sandwich is good not great as is there fried clams. I use to be a regular because it was very convenient to my house in Saugus. I recently moved to NH so it isn't convenient anymore. If I'm going... More

When my kids were younger we would make a trip from NH to Kelly's in Saugus about once a month. Unfortunately, since the kids are now in their teens we haven't been coming here as often. This was our first trip in more than two years since our last visit. The roast beef sandwiches are still the best. I get... More

I started going to the Revere Beach location, then here and now to Jordan's location. I found the Jorden's location by happy accident. All three locations are wonderful. I think they have some of the best fried food and fish ever. The only thing I didn't love was the salad. It tasted funny to me. It could of been a... More
