Excellent BBQ. I found myself uncontrollably saying “legit” a lot while I was there.

A no-frills greasy spoon run out of a shack on the side of Highway 10. We’ve made a few stops here despite it being a little out of the way for us, and it’s consistently good. They do a damn respectable lobster roll when it’s in season. The place is also adorable. There’s plenty of outdoor seating, it’s dog-friendly, and they keep the menu simple, have regular worthwhile specials (e.g. lobster rolls) and serve you quickly. We’ve gotten some tasty corn dogs and deliciously buried Chicago-esque style hot dogs, as well as a respectable fish taco. Everything is local and sustainable. So you’ve got that going for you, which is nice.
Don’t be intimidated by the menu. At Chez Albert the Bouillabaisse and Escargot are cozily at home with the best burger in Amherst.
