Great brunch spot – I had a bit of a hangover last Sunday and was in search of a fine brunch to take away the headache. Lo and behold, there was Cambridge Common. Every other place had an extensive wait, but not only was there no wait at Cambridge Common, but there was parking too! I had the Mushroom and Goat Cheese Omelette, which came with toast (and an individual pot of jam), fruit, and (fairly bland) homefries. It was fabulous, and I highly recommend this place for a weekend brunch.

Average Food and Service – The service, food, and atmosphere are set for comfort level in this establishment, but the real focus is on the alcohol. Their selection of beer is impressive in quantity. Try the chowder or the fish and chips.

Uncommonly good – Cambridge Common is vastly underrated, probably because of its inconspicuous appearance and location directly between Harvard and Porter Squares. Nonetheless, their burgers are consistently good and the price is right (about $5 for a burger and fries, with the option for sweet potato fries). Excellent inexpensive beers on tap as well, and great live music downstairs.

Can I have curly fries with that? – Haven't had a good curly fry lately? Be sure to specify theirs when ordering your burger...the best I've ever had. Some times burgers are a bit over cooked and they are skimpy on the lettuce - but over-all, a good solid experience every time with a fantastic beer selection on tap to wash down that high calorie meal. Cool surroundings - though if you are smoke free, make sure they seat you far away from the bar. Lots of seating so there is rarely a wait even for a secluded booth. Definitely make it a staple in your dining selections.

Sweet Potato Heaven! – Their sweet potato fries are the best in Boston. Get them with their burger on a large English muffin, and you'll be addicted. They could use a little help as far as their service goes, but even so this place is one of my favorite places for dinner and drinks.

Tasty – You can count on CC for a good, tasty burger, and more importantly awesome fries and onion rings. The burger has great flavor and they don't overcook them. I recommend a side of Guacomole to compliment the beef.

Open late – I went to CC on a Friday night, past midnight. We want to have both food and drinks. But for some reason, the kitchen wasn't doing a good job. I ordered a turkey club sandwich, which was awful. The bread the bacon were burnt (and hard). Furthermore, it took a ridiculously long time (over 20 minutes) to have the food arrive. On the next night, we went to Asgard and the experience was much better.

A One Restaurant – While visiting Boston for the first time, our trip led us to Cambridge Common. It was an enjoyable and delicious dining treat, and we will return to the restaurant on future visits to Cambridge. The service was excellent as well as the food. We enjoyed the friendly atmosphere.
