The walls, hung with abstract artwork, are painted dark, chandeliers hang from the ceilings, Otis Redding is blasting through the speakers, and there is a fish tank next to a display case full of pies with a sign that boasts, “Good & Baked”. Upon first visit Moogy’s is beyond strange.
But its decor proves that Moogy’s isn’t kidding when they say, “It’s all Good”. Although it is off the beaten path, the trip is absolutely worth it. Since opening nearly twenty years ago, this “sandwich shop” has grown into a restaurant that knows how to bring the weird. Today, its menu has no bounds, offering an infinite combination sandwiches, all day breakfast, a 50 foot beer and wine bar, ten different types of french fries, and even the notorious “chocolate drink” of our youth, Yoohoo.
The hippy restaurant is a popular spot for yuppies, off-campus BC students, as well as the dazed and confused. While the service is sometimes as laid back as its attitude, the food is worth the wait. Some of the Rock’s menu favorites include: Grateful Hash (A cheesy home fry combination with ham, peppers, shrooms, onions, and tomatoes), the Mini Me Burger (with two eggs, cheese, and bacon), the Slamba Jamba (toasted tripledecker pb&j with banana and fluff), Chive Fries, the breakfast burritos, 3-buck-chuck, and $1 Busches. Even your dog can chow down. They sell home made dog treats and a bowl of ice water outside for your pup too. Moogy’s also offers a selection of absolutely classic board games: Connect Four, Scrable, and Candyland (just to name a few). Where else can you sit down by a fire, get a beer for a $1, play a game of bananagrams, and get a Whatcha-ma-callit (omelette du fromage with banana) at 9pm?
Not sold yet? Boston College Junior, Alex DeRiso, raves, “Moogy’s: where your food dreams come true”. Yelp has given it four stars, and UrbanSpoon reviewers dubbed it a 9/10. So if you’re having a slow weekend morning after a long night and you want a pick me up meal with all the good stuff that makes a nutritionist cringe, then go no further than 154 Chestnut Hill Ave.
