River Gods

2011 Best Central Square Restaurant, Casual

Besides a damn fine burger and a tasty barbecue chicken sandwich, this quintessential hangout has extensive vegetarian options—pizzettas, Asian-slaw hand rolls—that will tempt even the more carnivorously inclined among us. Factor in the solid beer list, rotating cast of DJs, and downright funky (and ever-shifting) décor, and there’s no place more central to Central.
