John's Roast Beef & Seafood in Lynn Has Closed; Yas Chicken Replaces It

A highly-rated roast beef joint on the North Shore has shut down and has been replaced by a new restaurant.

According to a poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, John's Roast Beef & Seafood in Lynn is no longer in business, with another poster indicating that it has been shuttered for several months now and that Yas Chicken is now in its space. John's, which had been in business for approximately 50 years, was often mentioned as one of the best places for roast beef north of Boston, with our affiliated site (Boston's Hidden Restaurants) giving it a "best of" in 2011.

Yas Chicken offers wings, drumsticks, tenders, chicken and waffles, chicken sandwiches, and more, including mac and cheese.

The address for the now-closed John's Roast Beef & Seafood (and the new Yas Chicken) is 111 Western Avenue, Lynn, MA, 01904.
