When Selma and I lived in Allston, the only redeeming quality of residing in that area was the food. Because we lived right next door to The Draft, we would always go for their food deals on weeknights. Specifically, we would make it a point to go to Burger + Beer night every Tuesday. Burger + Beer night at The Draft is hands down one of the best deals in Boston. For $6.99, you get a beer/cider, a burger and fries. Yes, there are other numerous specials in Boston for food like 1/2 priced burger night at Pour House or $1 hotdogs at the Lower Depths, but none that include a beer in the deal.
The process is fairly straight forward when you visit. Everyone working there already assumes you’re there for the special. If you are at The Draft for any other reason on a Tuesday night, you’ve made a mistake. The deal itself includes any beer on draft so you have your pick of the bunch. However, we only ever get the Down East Cider. Yes…this place has Down East Cider on tap. Automatic win in my book forever.
Next, you order your burger. Each burger is served with double battered fries and your choice of beef, turkey, or veggie. We usually stick with the meat options though because vegetables are for the weak. Finally, you choose your cheese and how you like your burger cooked. Easy as that.
Pictured below is their standard burger with pepper jack cheese.
And this is their turkey burger. The patty is about the size of your face and is equally delicious as the beef patty.
They may not look like much but they are actually pretty amazing. And when you take into consideration that you’re only paying $6.99 for dinner AND a beer, the savings will make the burger just that much more delicious.
The Draft is usually known for their $1 draft nights on Thursdays but it’s definitely worth a visit on a Monday or Tuesday night for their food specials. Hint: if you want another beer, just order another special. I’m sure you can find someone who will eat the burger and fries. Or if you’re an animal like me, you can just eat both.
And with that, thanks for reading!
