Irish fare can be bland as the misty moorlands, but that's not the case at this jam-packed Northeast chippery. (They don't take reservations, so expect to put your name on the list and then go get a drink across the street at the Peacock Lounge.) The short, affordable menu - nothing costs more than $10 - consists of the hearty, traditional fare that two of the owners, Irish expats, grew up on, right down to the baby-food-style mushy peas. The fish and chips are crispy but mild--for more flavor go with the mashed-potato-frosted Shepherd's Pie or the fried-egg-and-ham-topped Helicopter Burger. Better yet, go on a weekend for one of Anchor's authentic Irish breakfasts: The Full Whack is piled with everything from eggs and beans to black and white pudding to bangers and rashers.
