Boston Restaurant Blog -- October, 2008

As we continue to look into creating a new section on good sub shops and takeout restaurants in the Boston area, I have been trying out a few such places over the past few weeks. Some have been better than others, of course, with one of the best being a sub shop and pizza place in Braintree that I have now tried a few times. And while it is basically just a takeout joint, Georgianna's in Braintree is fast becoming one of my favorite places to go to when I need a quick bite to eat.
Most sub shops don't look like much, and in the case of Georgianna's, this is certainly the case. Situated at the end of a well-worn parking lot in a semi-industrial part of Braintree near the Randolph line, Georgianna's ain't pretty, but no one goes here for the atmosphere. Within this rather homely brick structure is a friendly, reasonably-priced takeout spot that has good Italian-style pizza, tasty wraps, and excellent subs and sandwiches. The latter includes a hearty turkey sandwich with cranberries, stuffing, and mayo, and a delicious sandwich called the International Harvester, which has corned beef, roast beef, turkey, and Swiss cheese. One item that isn't on the menu but is worth requesting is their steak and cheese wrap, which is very fine. Georgianna's also has good soups and salads, including Italian wedding soup, clam chowder, and chicken salads with all white meat.
It is easy to lump all of the sub shops and sandwich joints in the Boston area together since it is (incorrectly) assumed that the quality of these places is mostly the same. Georgianna's certainly disproves this theory, in my opinion, and is worth trying if you happen to be looking for a place to get a quick bite to eat while south of Boston.
If you would like the address for Georgianna's, here it is: Georgianna's, 611 Pond Street, Braintree, MA, 02184. Phone: (781) 849-4700.
