Best Chicken Noodle Soup at David's World Famous in Woburn

One of the salesmen at the office was feeling a bit under the weather and wanted a nice bowl of chicken noodle soup for lunch.  I quickly Googled "Best Chicken Noodle Soup Burlington" and David's World Famous  in Woburn ranked at the top of my search results.

We got a bit lost getting to the eatery since it's tucked away in a heavily industrial/commercial on Commerce Way.  It was quite the "hidden gem" alright!

We arrived to a small shop with 6-7 tables and a window to place your order.  The menu featured regular deli meat lunch staples along with unique items like Chinese Duck Breast, Grilled Shrimp sandwiches and a Middle Eastern Falafel Roll-Up.  They also have Sriracha Hot Sauce as one of their "spreads". I thought that was so awesome! 

My favorite part was that they offered soup and sandwiches combos for a FRACTION of the price you would pay at Panera.  Maybe I'm wrong, but I always feel like I spend so much money at Panera. (Not that I was paying...)  At David's World Famous,  a cup of soup and 1/2 sandwich it was $ 7.45 and for a bowl of soup and 1/2 sandwich it was $ 7.95.  

The 1/2 sandwich options included:
  • Roast Beef
  • Turkey Breast
  • Caprese
  • Homemade Chicken Salad
  • Tuna Salad
Although the soup is on a rotation basis, I looked ahead for the rest of the week and it seemed to remain "Grandma's Chicken Noodle" and "New England Clam Chowder."

CUP $ 3.95 / Bowl $ 4.45
I went with the soup and sandwich combo.  Since we drove here to get the "Best Chicken Noodle Soup" I had to try a cup along with my roast beef on fresh baked French baguette.

Ira, my coworker, went with the bowl version of the soup and a side of Hand Cut French Fries.

David's World Famous Hand Cut Fries $ 3.75
We both agreed that the soup was indeed delicious. There were ample white chicken meat and the flavor and seasonings were perfect.  I loved the large chunks of carrots and celery in the homemade stock. Unlike most restaurant soup, it was not too salty.

The roast beef sandwich and hand cut fries were also great.

As we were finishing up our meal, the eatery got packed with professionals within the area.  At one time, there were no seats available and people stood as they waited for their orders and for a table to clear up.

I will definitely be back with my other coworkers and try everything else on the menu.
