Went to the ever-reliable Mike's Restaurant in Davis Square before heading to the Somerville Theatre to see the incredible movie "Walk the Line," which was about the towering music figures Johnny Cash and June Carter. We had little time before the movie started, so we went to the old standby, Mike's Restaurant.
Mike's, a humble, old-fashioned Italian eatery in the heart of Davis Square, is about as far from gourmet as you can get, but it is a step above the sub shops in the area. You order at the counter and wait for your meal, much like a sub shop, but Mike's has a huge menu, including pizza, subs, pasta dishes, and chicken dinners. The meatball sub I got was good, filling, and very inexpensive. And we had enough time to get to the Somerville Theatre before the movie started. Sure, Mike's has its detractors, but I've always loved the place, and my friends who live in the neighborhood depend on it for quick, cheap food when they want to avoid the standard sub shops.
Here is the address for Mike's Restaurant in Somerville: Mike's Restaurant, 9 Davis Square, Somerville, MA 02144; the phone number is (617) 628-2379
