The ABC Bar Salem Reviews
Best Kept Secret Aug 03, 2010
The ABC is the best kept secret in Salem. It's a bar, so it typically doesn't get chosen for meals, but they have incredible food. The cheeseburgers are so juicy and served with four (yes, we counted) slices of cheese on top, melting down over the burger. Don't order too many fries; one basket it enough to share with the whole table. And, the french fries are amazing, probably the best I've ever had. They are fried to a perfect crispness and they are nice and soft in the middle. The grilled chicken salad is also good. There is so much chicken, that the last time I ordered it, the chicken came on a separate plate.
It is on the expensive side, as far as restaurants in Salem go ($10-$15 for an entree), but well worth it!
The ABC is located right downtown Salem, on Broadway just a block south of the courthouse. Street parking is available (no meters) and there is a parking lot behind the downtown buildings, with a back entrance to the ABC.
