This summer, I had the opportunity to work (read: hang out with cool people, pour beer sometimes, and refill the ice machine) at an awesome restaurant called Moogy’s, which is right off the B-line on Chestnut Hill Ave. Moogy’s serves breakfast all day, has $1 PBR drafts, and is a great place to hang out and watch the game or to cure a hangover. In the true spirit of The Rock, I decided to bring a few of my favorite staff members along with me to try some of their famous sandwiches and review them for ya’ll… and totally NOT argue at all along the way.
Thanks Mike, Connor, Caroline P., Siqi, Shelby, Austin, and Korey for helping out! You guys Rock.
After finally getting the sandwiches cut, which I did completely alone with no help from anyone, we got to the tasting! We decided to rate the sandwiches on a scale from 0-2, but the great thing about Moogy’s is that you can customize most sandwiches to your own taste!
Hot Chick: Buffalo tenders, mozz on grilled white
Rating : 1.6
- All of the white people in the room were surprisingly comfortable with the amount of heat in this sandwich – including myself, who honestly considers honey mustard a bit ~sweltering~.
- The bread was especially good, with one staff member commenting on how “non-dense” it was. I will leave that up to you, dear reader, to decipher.
- The Tom Boy was also very moist. I can’t believe I’m putting that word into an article, but I am dedicated to journalistic integrity.
Mother-Child Reunion: Chicken cutlet with bacon, egg, and cheese
- Korey described this sandwich as having “lots of egg, lots of protein, love of mother, and people love it.” I think that’s really all I need to say about this one.
BC: cheese steak, extra steak, provolone, and american cheese
- We ended up getting this sandwich plain without any toppings, and I think it gave some of my comrades flashbacks to waiting in line with 50 of their closest and dearest friends at the familiar Corcoran Commons after a full day of overcompensation and living Jesuit values.
- Someone stated that it’s “not Philly,” which is an incredibly accurate assessment of our geography.
- Next time, we would probably get some toppings on this one! Moogy’s offers peppers, onions, mushrooms, and a variety of sauces to spice up your sandwich, if you’re into that kind of thing.
Phantom Royale W/ Cheese: steak, onion rings, cheese sauce
- People liked this a lot better than the BC, and this is one of those sandwiches I would get if I was having a day where I knew I would be inactive for the next 24 hours to allow this to process through my insides.
- The BBQ sauce added was described as “nice,” and rings were described as being “well-made.”
- This is a heavy-duty sandwich and not for everyone, but it is certainly comfort food at it’s finest… and what I would show anyone who says Americans “don’t have culture.”
Cordon’s Cousin: chicken steak, bacon, swiss, ranch dressing
- This was described as “a Caesar salad with bacon on bread,” which I think is not only incredibly poetic, but incredibly accurate. Trying to appear healthy but still just really want some bacon? This is the sandwich for you.
- Someone in the group said they “weren’t a big ranch person,” and to that person, I say nothing.
Well, there we have it – some of Moogy’s best sandwiches were devoured by Boston College’s most devoted lovers of all things food. Look out for other editions of this off-campus dining series, and happy snacking!
