What’s so great about Boomers Sub & Deli in Worcester? In a word, everything. Rather than being a pizza place that only has one or two lines of food to eat, Boomers has several selections of great food available for purchase. Its vast selection of delicious food is what sets it apart from similar restaurants and pizza places. Unlike some takeout places where they say they have something for everyone, Boomers actually does!
Boomers is located on 93 Highland Street, at the corner of Denny Street, right next to the Jim Dandy Laundromat. It’s ironic that even though I had seen Boomers’ sign many times going up and down Highland Street, I never went there until the time I had to go to the Jim Dandy laundromat to do my laundry. Once I tried some food at Boomers, I was hooked.
Boomers has a wide selection of 23 different super deli sandwiches, or you can get one of their six Italian sandwiches. I have tried the Chicken Caesar Wrap and found it to be absolutely delicious!
At the present, I am alternating between ordering the burgers and calzones. Boomers offers 25 different calzones (I recommend the Cheeseburger and the Texan calzones), or, you can create your own special calzone with up to four different items from the menu. Six different burgers, as well as seven grilled sandwiches are also available for purchase. I strongly recommend the basic charbroiled burger with cheese or the Boomers burger.
Boomers also offers up to 13 different specialty pizzas. Or, you can create one of your own from the extensive list of toppings. Boomers also offers daily pizza and lunch specials from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. For vegetarian customers, Boomers serves five different vegetarian dishes. Nine different salads are available as well as a wide selection of salad dressings. There are also over 12 pasta dishes to choose from. Haddock Fish n’ Chips are available on Friday.
And don’t forget to make room for one of Boomers’ cookies or dessert items! Man, I’m getting hungry just writing about most of the menu items Boomers serves! The only problem I have with Boomers is that it’s very hard decide what to order.
Boomers is open Monday through Thursday 10 a.m. – 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. – 2 a.m., and Sundays noon to 10 p.m. The operating hours may change during the school year and holidays, so customers are advised to call in advance for hours during those times.
There are a variety of ways for customers to contact Boomers to place an order. The telephone number is 508-791-5551 and the fax number is 508-363-4098. Customers who call in an order may have the option of paying over the phone with a credit or debit card. Boomers accepts Discover, Mastercard, and Visa credit cards.
