Price: $9.95

On a residential street in Cambridgeport sits Cambridge Pizzeria, an old-timey, no-frills spot that serves the obvious pizza alongside a surprisingly long menu of hot subs, triple-decker clubs, paninis and wraps. The pizza for which it’s named is good, but those other offerings are not to be overlooked. The chicken Caesar wrap, which you can get with either grilled or breaded chicken, is delicious. My breaded chicken was crispy and well-seasoned, and the lettuce was well-coated in a Caesar dressing that was creamy and rich but also tangy and bright. With a wrap such as this one that includes dressed greens, there’s a narrow sweet spot between underdressed (dry) and overdressed (soggy) that Cambridge Pizzeria hit perfectly. It’s the kind of place where everything is pretty affordable, and at $9.95, this wrap is a great sub-$10 offering that actually works as a full meal – a rarity these days.
