The Blind Pig - Athol, MA

We dropped in here just after the lunch rush for a quick meal and some beer.  There was only one person working the bar and the tables, but she was quick, efficient and friendly.  She knew everything about the local beers on tap and convinced me to try a beer from WormTown (Worcester) Brewery.  It was a quite delicious pale ale.

We had the Mezza Plate, which had a good selection of Middle Eastern Foods, including quite good Hummus.  We gave it a 3.0.

The Bart sandwich had horseradish, roast beef and melted cheese (can't remember what kind - what a great food blogger I am!) (-it was provolone you dumbass  -Char.) We gave it a 3.5.

The Monty's was a hot Turkey and Bacon sandwich, also a 3.5.

Service was excellent 4.0.

The surprise of the meal was when Charlotte bought a gift card for some co-workers.  It came with a very nice gift box that displayed  the card very elegantly.  There was no extra charge for this which we all agreed was a very nice and thoughtful touch to add to the experience.

We will definitely be back!

    The Wormtown Birthday Brew is a Double IPA. We have sinced kicked it but will have their Local First Ale on this next week - another great one from Worcester's finest brewery.

    The Bart has Roast Beef with Harvarti Cheese with sauteed oinions, and horseraddish creme on an onion roll.

    Monty's Pig Melt is sliced turkey, ham and bacon with garlic mustard aioli on sourdogh panini.

    So glad you liked the gift box!
