Jamie’s Roast Beef in Peabody were the big winners for our Big Beefy Bracket, so naturally we had to pay them a visit and give them an award.

 

If you missed the action, 64 of the Boston area’s best roast beef joints battled it out for sandwich supremacy back in May. And whether you liked it 3-way, with cheddar, or with horseradish, you voted for your favorite local roast beef places and you spread the word so they’d get the votes. But in the end, it was Jamie’s in Peabody who wore the crown!

 

Who did Jamie’s Roast Beef beat?

It wasn’t an easy road for Jamie’s by any stretch. Here, I’ll dig into the bracket so you don’t have to. In the first round, they were up against their neighbors down the street and around the corner: Atha’s in Peabody. They’re a personal favorite of mine; they have the old-school North Shore-style 3-way on lock. After dispatching Atha’s, Jamie’s did away with another North Shore favorite, Mike’s in Saugus. But it was the third round matchup that really set things in motion, as Jamie’s knocked off another joint beloved by beefers: Anthony’s in Tewksbury.

 

That wasn’t the last big challenge Jamie’s faced, though. They retired my all-time favorite roast beef restaurant, Billy’s in Wakfield, in the Elite Eight. And their Final Four matchup wasn’t easy either. They were up against Nick’s Famous Roast Beef in Beverly, and they won. That set Jamie’s up for a final matchup with Bill & Bob’s in Woburn. Jamie’s was the victor.

 

Check out the video from our visit to Jamie’s, where we presented them with their award. We snapped some pics, too. And grabbed a roast beef to go, of course. That’s Jamie’s Roast Beef in Peabody, the big winner of ROCK 92.9’s Big Beefy Bracket!
