With the famous Citgo sign looming overhead, The Lower Depths- its entrance located, as you might expect, behind a sunken patio- might seem like just another Kenmore dive attracting BU students. But take a seat at the bar and look at the tap or pages-long bottle list (over 150), or take a look at the menu, and you’ll realize that this is a place that takes its beer and food seriously.
There are lots of options to choose from with the current Taco intensive menu so head over with friends and try a few. Not in the mood for tacos? There is also a decent list of salads and other assorted snacks and sides including veg friendly options. If you miss the old Hot Dog menu, there are a few still left as well. Also, the food is served until 12:30 for that late night snack.
The extensive beer selection is the main draw however, and with a knowledgeable staff, don’t be afraid to try something unfamiliar. It’s a place that attracts regulars, and it’s not hard to see why. Note that it’s cash-only.
