Natick offers a variety of eateries, from fancy to homey to chains. Natick’s best-known restaurant team is Dora Tavel-Sanchez Luz and Gabriel Sanchez Luz, who launched Buttercup in Natick following their success with The Farmhouse in Needham. Seafood standbys are Legal Seafood on route 9 and Dolphin in Natick Center. Fanciness aside, Casey’s Diner is the place to go for steamed hot dogs, burgers, and other diner classics.

We recently tried out Eli’s, a Natick staple popular for its all-day breakfast. The Washington Street spot serves a wide selection of humorously named omelets such as the “Hot Mama,” pancakes, breakfast sandwiches, cheesy tater tots, and more. We stopped in for lunch and tried out their Left Coast burger with mashed avocado, fried egg, cheddar, and sriracha mayo. Our burger arrived cooked to order (medium), topped with a single and beautiful sunny-side-up fried egg. The hearty lunch came with a choice of fries, coleslaw, or potato salad. For a slight upcharge we could’ve had tater tots, truffle fries, or sweet potato fries.
Also on the lunch menu: salads, a full roster of sandwiches such as turkey club, reuben, creative grilled cheeses (or just a regular one if you want). A kid’s menu includes chicken fingers, hot dogs, burgers, and grilled cheese.
Eli’s has a beer and wine license and offers a nice roster of about a dozen canned beers including some from local breweries (Jack’s Abby, Framingham; Lord Hobo, Woburn; Night Shift, Everett). Cider, hard seltzer, wines, and a couple of bubblies are also available. Plenty of the usual non-alcoholic beverages on hand as well, of course.
The casual spot seats about 45, spread out over 17 tables. Nice staff, too.
