I've been going to Leno's Clam Bar... more affectionately known as "Greasy Nick's", since I was very young, and even more often after I got my driver's license. I used to head there with some buddies after football practice during the summer. I took my three sons there recently and nothing has changed. The raw clams are as cold, sweet and tender as ever and are still served in a tin pie plate with lemon and cocktail sauce and a large two pronged wooden fork.
The cheeseburgers with fried onions are still delicious and are required eating when going to Greasy Nick's. Shoestring french fries and sweet corn on the cob literally drenched in a puddle of butter made up the side dishes on this visit, although we were thinking of getting an order of steamers but were simply too full. My 12-year-old broke the cheeseburger tradition and ordered a hot dog... split down the middle and grilled. Crunchy and buttery. He ate every bite.
The crowd is still a mixed one. Several "executive" types dined while, at the next table, there were some bikers and, of course, familes with kids. Now my oldest son has his driver's license and advised me that he and his buddies are going to "Greasy Nick's" next weekend for burgers and onions. Some things never change.
