Carl Thomas Field in North Andover is a recreational facility owned and maintained by the Town of North Andover. It has 3 baseball fields, all well maintained and accompanied by a snack hut, restrooms, and playground.
Carl Thomas is very close to Rt. 495, but parking can be a little tricky coming off the highway—especially if you’re new to North Andover.
Go past the fields (you’ll see them on your left), and take the first available left onto Marblehead Street. Follow Marblehead around to the left, past the small office park and parking lot. Turn left onto Dana Street and you’ll find the parking lots and street parking there.
Harrison’s should be a national landmark. It’s certainly a North Andover landmark. Here’s their “story” from Facebook.
There’s really nothing else that compares to the first bite of a Roast Beef sandwich from Harrison’s. There’s just something about that juicy sandwich bursting with flavor that assures you’ll be hooked after the first bite.
Aside from that we’re pretty simple. Along with your sandwich, you can grab some fries, onion rings, chicken fingers, pizza rolls and soups.
We’re just a small shop really good at one thing, making only the best Roast Beef Sandwiches.
They’ve been cooking up some of the best roast beef in the world since 1984, with no signs of slowing down any time soon.
You’ll notice from the ratings and reviews that Harrison’s doesn’t get 5 stars across the board every time. That’s probably fair. It’s not the best restaurant you’ll ever visit in your life.
But that’s ok. They’re not trying to be.
They know exactly who they are and they’ve gained a fiercely loyal cult following over 30+ years, and they’ve earned every bit of it.
