Kelly's Diner in Somerville. Large portions, VERY easy on the wallet and big flavors. It is easy to see why the Food Network ran a piece on this great establishment. It is a must visit for everyone. Your stomach will thank you!

La Hacienda in East Boston. Epic brunch buffet for $7.95. High quality food, a good mix of American classics and Latin specialties including some of the best chicharones (like bacon but better).
