The Boulevard Diner, Worcester, MA

Today, I was privileged to join Diner Aficionados Scott Monty and CC Chapman on a very fun road trip to Worcester, Massachusetts to visit The Boulevard Diner on Shrewsbury St.

The Boulevard is an authentic old railroad diner car built right in Worcester (Worcester Lunch Car Co. #730 built in 1936). I and my fraternity brothers used to visit the Boulevard, a 24 hr, 6 days/wk, establishment in the wee hours after parties when I was an engineering undergrad at WPI in the late 60s. That's right folks, I used to go there 40 years ago, and it is almost exactly like it was those decades ago.

In those days, my favorite order was an Italian sausage sandwich and a chocolate milk. I ordered the same today and, except for the price, it has also changed very little. Still hearty and delicious. Scott had the steak and cheese, and CC went for his diner touchstone meal, the meatloaf.
