Eat at Jumbo's in Somerville's Ball Square Is Up for Sale

A comfort food spot in Somerville that announced it was closed until further notice back in May is now on the market.

According to a source, Eat at Jumbo's in Ball Square is for sale, with owner Grover Taylor saying within the Boston Pizza Wars Facebook group page that "Its time for me to retire from the restaurant business." Eat at Jumbo's first opened in 2009, morphing into a vegetarian eatery called Sassafras in 2018 before reverting back to Eat at Jumbo's in 2020; the restaurant was known in part for its pizza and wings, while also offering such items as garlic knots, cheese fries, burgers, tacos, macaroni and cheese, steak bombs, and chicken tenders.

The address for Eat at Jumbo's is 688 Broadway, Somerville, MA 02144.
