Comment on Hoss and Mary’s Tasty Grub by B.

I remember going to Hoss & Mary’s on my yearly Old Orchard Beach pilgrimage with my father last summer. Don’t remember exactly what we had (what it was called, anyway), but it was a sandwich involving multiple meats, including hot pastrami, and it was the best sandwich I had all summer! The fact that I remember how it tasted 8 months later is a testament to how tasty Hoss & Mary’s food is. I also loved that there were old Trivial Pursuit cards at all of the tables…something fun and enriching to do while you waited for the yummies!
I’m glad they are having some success and getting some well-deserved praise…we’ll definitely be back this year!

Upon re-reading my comment I realized how many religion-related words I used…pilgrimage, testament…I guess Hoss & Mary’s sandwich was some sort of subconscious religious experience for me, lol!
