Revere Beach, cool off in the Atlantic Ocean
Indulge at Kelly?s Roast Beef on Revere Beach
Founded in 1951, the first Kelly’s Roast Beef was opened in Revere, Massachusetts, on the beach by Frank V. McCarthy and Raymond Carey. They originally owned a hot-dog stand on the beach, and also worked at Paul Rogers House, a neighboring restaurant. When a wedding cancelled at the restaurant, McCarthy and Carey brought the leftover roast beef to their hot-dog stand, sliced them, put them on bread, and became the creator of the Original Roast Beef Sandwich. McCarthy and Carey didn’t want either of their names on the restaurant, so they named the business after their friend Tom Kelly, and we quickly became one of the top restaurants in Revere, Massachusetts.
