I have tried many hot roast beef sandwiches and by far it is the best one here at Kelly's. I love that the beef cooked just right, not too raw and not too dry, the bbq sauce is also very good too. There are plenty of seats, parking and very good service.

All locals know Kelly's & its long history - its gained its fame for great roast beef sandwiches, competing against great pizza & subs found almost anywhere in the greater Boston area. Since the hotel was close by I stopped at the Kelly's in Saugus & ordered roast beef, while my wife ordered the crab roll. Roast beef - still... More

I have often eaten at Kelly's in Saugus or Peabody and I usually like it. But yesterday was the exception. I ordered my usual roast beef on a gluten free roll, toasted, and a side of french fries (I sometimes get a small salad). The meal came quickly, but as I ate the sandwich it looked like the roll was... More

Yesterday, stopped by for lunch. Had the scallop/clam combo - $25 & change. A few scallops, less clams, some fries and 3 1/2 burnt onion rings. Not too tasty. Fortunately the clam chowder was still good.

A must when in Saugus....worst part is trying merge back on the terror road that is Route 1....but that's the case at all the businesses in this area. I don't know how... More

Kelly's, at their various locations north and west of Boston (see their website), is a good choice for sandwiches and salads. Kelly's food is much better than fast food, and yet without the comfort and service of full restaurants. Their locations have adequate seating. You place your order and pay at the counter, and then your food is brought to... More

For a place famous for their roast beef, don't pass on the pastrami. Piled high between rye, it was incredibly juicy and delicious. Cool atmosphere inside with large fish tanks for kids and the kid in all of us.
