Full of Bull Roast Beef restaurant

Grocery stores, recipes, cook books, CSAs, farmers' markets, organic, local, processed, corporate. It's a smorgabord!

I guess they couldn't make a go of it on State Street. The WSJ reports that Full of Bull is now closed. They probably aren't famous anymore.

I checked them out when they first opened. Walked right out after seeing the prices, checking out what people were getting, and thinking that didn't look like a whole lot of food.

It seemed odd to me that they'd be charging that kind of money for a sammich with Five Guys right across the street.

That's a bummer ... I liked their pit beef with tater tots, but I guess that wasn't enough. Most of the time I walked by there it was empty.

We went there semi-regularly when they were on East Wash for lunch, but State St was just too much out of the way.

Can't say I'm surprised.

In other news, the old location seems to be undergoing some sort of renovation.

What happened to the Taco Bell/KFC that was there? When I was in high school, that Taco Bell was the place to go! It was busy all the time.

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: "Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
`My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings:
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away".

I wonder if Shelley preferred original recipe or extra crispy?

The guys who owned and ran this place were idiots. One had experience as a cook and the other had no restaurant experience at all. Their main supplier was Sam's Club which is the reason they were often out of everything... no regular food deliveries. I had no idea how they managed to pay their rent on Blair St., then they decided to move to State St. Must have though rent was cheaper there. I worked for them for about 9 months and I'm a guy with 20+ years restaurant experience including management and they wouldn't listen to me when I offered help. Tough to keep working for them where I wouldn't get paid for 2-3 months at a time and then have a check or two bounce when I did get one.

Good riddance.
