Diner dining as expected. Good eggs and hash breakfast. Nice Monte Cristo sandwich. Quick, reliable service in old fashioned booth (music-ola machine on the wall). HOT food fast out of kitchen. Find this whenever you can.

Even if you aren't in the Somerville area, Kelly's is worth the quick sidetrip off of I-93 for a delicious americanna breakfast or lunch. Locally owned and operated. Try the homemade cornbeef hash and eggs for breakfast, or the turkey dinner or turkey club sandwich, all some of my favorites. Note: cash only establishment.

This was an OK Breakfast as diners go, but we went there at noon wanting lunch only to find none on Sunday's. Also, be prepared with cash or to use the ATM. Maybe it's my Gulf Coast tendencies, but too many CASH ONLY spots around.

We had a fantastic brunch in this fabulous retro diner. The service from our warm, friendly waitress was first class.

We are a European couple (British and German) and visited Kelly's on our New England road trip while in Boston. We had earmarked it following their Triple D appearance. The service was great. With the characters in there - staff and patrons, - and the style of the car it was a really enjoyable breakfast experience and on an affordable... More

Admittedly I was a bit disappointed when told I couldn't order from the lunch menu on Sunday mornings and reluctantly ordered a '#8 Homestyle' on the breakfast menu instead. What a surprise it was to enjoy breakfast food again! Great diner, will definitely hit up next time through even if I can't get a club!!

Planned to go to another place for breakfast and it was packed. Kept going down the street and came upon a bit of nostalgia. A real old-fashioned diner that looked like it was dropped there from another time. The service was outstanding! Two extremely pleasant waitresses covered the whole diner. There is booth seating and counter seating. The food was... More

It doesn't get more authentic than this place. Great food and service in a genuine diner car. We saw it on Triple D and had to try it out as we were passing through. Our kids loved it too.

We had brunch here and enjoyed the ambiance. They offer diner fare, including chicken salad sandwiches, pastrami and traditional breakfasts. I love a good chicken salad and ordered a sandwich which was huge. To generous to finish, I ended up taking it home. The breakfast egg style entrees were just as big. We were quite satisfied. The prices are reasonable.... More

Food and setting is so typically American it could be a museum. Service is efficient and very Boston. We loved it and highly recommend it.
