Mattapan got its name from the Native American tribe, the Mattahunt. The tribes’ population declined during the 1600s with the arrival of immigrants from Ireland and Haiti. The three cultures created a vibrant community that still exists today in this Boston neighborhood, and some diverse cuisines. Here are 10 great places to experience it.
Simco’s serves hot dogs, burgers, seafood and much more, and it is truly hard to pick a favorite. Although their specialty is hot dogs and they are delicious, the burgers and seafood give them a run for their money. Simco’s is the perfect hole-in-the-wall in Mattapan to grab a quick bite to eat before returning home after a long day at work.
