My son, Joe and I came to Boston for a father and son weekend. Joe had asked some of his friends who live in Boston for some recommendations of places to visit and eat. The Lower Depths Tap Room was one that sounded very interesting because his friend said that you could get a great hotdog and beer there. As we approached The Lower Depths, I wasn't too sure because even though it was a nasty rainy day, the outside looked sad and I was also expecting to find more than 2 patrons in the place. We decided that since we were there and that it came highly recommended, the least we could do is give it a shot. After walking down several steps from street level, we entered and felt like hipsters. The walls had murals on them except for a few that were artsy or the ones behind the bar. We were greeted by a young bartender and decided to eat at the bar. Joe ordered the Boston Strangler which was a foot long on a special toasted bun with caramelized onions and mackin' cheese for $8. I ordered the Belgian which was also a foot long on a special toasted bun with garlic mayo & fries on it for $5. To quench our thirsts, joe ordered a Zep on the Jukebox beer by Kent Falls Brewery on tap for $7 while I had the White Rascal by Avery Brewing Co for $6. The dogs and beer were amazing and our bartender was very personable. If you are in the area of Fenway Park, then this is a MUST!
