Allston, MA: Burgers and Fried Chicken at Roxy's Grilled Cheese

  • Roxy's Grilled Cheese 485 Cambridge Street Allston, MA, 02134 United States (map)

EDIT: Due to the overwhelming demand and limited space, we simply will not be able to feed every single person who has RSVP'd via facebook thus far. We will be making as many sandwiches as we can, starting at 7pm, and serving until we run out of food. Come early to guarantee yourself a taste!

We'll be keeping a steady update of how much food is left on Roxy's twitter account (@RoxysGrilledChz) so check it to make sure that you don't come and leave hungry. We'd hate for that to happen!

I'm teaming up with my buddies from American Burger Revival for a burger and fried chicken sandwich pop-up at Roxy's Grilled Cheese in Allston. Stop on by to have some tasty burgers from Richard Chudy and Sam Monsour, my kimchi-brined double-fried hot chicken sandwiches, Animal-style fries, and more!

No tickets necessary.

Books will be on sale and we'll be signing and chatting with guests all night.
