Hidden in a little industrial park that caters to Boston’s food service industry, Speed’s stands out as one of the best lunch options in the area. A few other places exist for the workers in the South Bay industrial park, but none are like Speed’s. First, it’s a trailer. Second, it only has seating for four. Third, it has a limited menu. A very limited menu. Two items: hot dogs and brisket sandwiches.
Speed’s serves their amazing half-pound hot dogs on toasted sub rolls ($7). Toppings are limited, but delicious: sweet barbeque, sweet honey mustard, sweet chili (no beans), sweet onion, and sweet relish. I sense a theme…
And Speed’s liberally adds those toppings to your dogs, so be prepared for a huge mess. The easiest way to eat at Speeds is to eat standing up. I tried sitting, and each time I ended up with toppings all over my clothes. Standing works best.
The only flaw I could find is location. It’s a pain in the ass to find, and the only nearby public transportation is the bus. But if you have a car, put Speed’s on your to-do list.
