This week we are reviewing restaurants from the beautiful town of Stow, Massachusetts. Best known for its golf courses, the town is home to the Stow Acres Country Club.

When we visit Stow for property management meetings, we make sure to visit its restaurants for breakfast, lunch or dinner. So, here is our review of some of the best restaurants in Stow, MA.


80 Thoreau

As the name suggests, the restaurant is located at 80 Thoreau Street in Concord, near Stow but it is fabulous. Perfect in every way (except noise, we’ll come to that later), the food is great, the service is efficient, the drinks are both gorgeous and amazing. This is the place we’ll be visiting the next time we visit Stow.

The menu offers many creative names and choices to pick from and enjoy. No matter what you choose, you’ll love it. And when you are done tasting all the fancy named dishes, try the burger. At $15, it is the best burger in this part of the country yet.

The only downside is that you have to travel a bit out of Stow to get here but it is well worth the effort.


Nancy’s Air Field Café

We visited Nancy’s on a Wednesday morning for breakfast before heading back to Boston. Located on Boxboro Road, Nancy’s is sitting smack in the middle of an airfield. We got a seat near the back windows and found watching the little bi-planes take off and land was a rather amusing way to wait for our food to arrive.

The first thing you notice about the food is that it is made from fresh ingredients. We ordered Nancy’s Egg Sandwich. The muffin was alright, nothing special. But the coffee was good. We’ve had better but it was better than what we expected in a small town like Stow.

The only problem with Nancy’s is the high prices. The food is good but not that good.


Papa Gino’s Pizzeria

Before Papa Gino’s arrived in Stow, most people who craved fast food or a pizza had to travel to Concord or Acton. But Papa Gino’s has managed to build a loyal fan base over the years with its consistently good pizzas and fast food.

It is a typical fast food joint with a menu offering subs, salads and other Italian specialties with pizza being their most popular food item.

The food tastes like just about any other Papa Gino’s with fresh ingredients being its best quality.  So if you’re out on the town and want to grab a bite to eat, Papa Gino’s is the place to be.
