I had so much fun this weekend checking out The Porch Restaurant, an awesome spot in Wakefield with delicious Southern Food.
located at 41 Tuttle Street in Wakefield, MA
At The Porch, you choose your meat — either fried chicken, BBQ Pork, or chicken-fried steak. Then, you choose two sides from the following: mac and cheese, potato salad, coleslaw, corn bread, black eyed pea salad, or collard greens. The restaurant is casual; there is no table-service and all of the food is served on paper plates (which absolutely doesn't take away from how delicious the food is!).
We opted for the fried chicken and the BBQ pork, and paired them with mac and cheese (because how could we not?), coleslaw, corn bread, and black-eye pea salad.

For dessert, we had The Porch's delicious Chess Pie and Banana Pudding.
We definitely left feeling full — the portions are big (and great for leftovers the next day!).
Check out The Porch’s full menu here. I'm really excited about this addition to the North of Boston food scene — in my opinion, it's definitely worth a trip out to the suburbs if you're living in the city!
