Cambridge Auto Repair and Redbones Too!

Posted by Mark Pedersen on Wed, Aug, 10, 2011 @ 15:08 PM

Something sweet is on the move here in the 'Ville. According to the Web site, The Feast, local favorite Redbones is hopping the tracks to Cambridge where it will open a rib stand.

Fear not, Davis Square faithful, the original Redbones will remain!

The new spot will be in Kendall Square at 300 Aethaneum Street. The Cambridge Auto Repairrib stand will feature a much smaller (but still delicious) menu and will be solely take-out, with the exception of a few outside seats.

Redbones will make a great addition to Kendall Square - now all of the techies and VCs can get some down-home grub too!

We would like to congratulate Redbones, including co-owner Rob Gregory (who so graciously supports many local fundraising initiatives). Nothing is better than seeing a fellow locally owned, independent business flourish!

So, when in need of Cambridge auto repair, don't forget to swing by the rib shack on your way to Mike's.

And oh yeah - don't forget to save a rib for Mike!

What's your favorite dish at Redbones? Leave us some tips we won't find on Foursquare!

Here's to 30 Years of Somerville Auto Repair!

Posted by Mark Pedersen on Wed, May, 19, 2010 @ 19:05 PM

We can't believe it!  30 years? That's right - we're celebrating our 30th anniversary here at Mike's Automotive! And what a ride it has been....

We started out on May 1, 1980, in a small 1-bay shop in Cambridge. Back then it was just Mike Sr. Mike set out with $2,500 and a dream to be his own boss and help other people. Cambridge auto repair was tough! But Mike held on, taking it day-by-day.

Somerville Auto Repair - Mike Sr. & Jr.After many years we were able to get a bigger shop in Cambridge. The business grew in more ways than one - Mike Jr. joined. What a team!

It wasn't long until we needed to move again. This time, it was next door to Somerville - a city we've called home ever since! First it was behind the high school on Medford St., then to our current home in historic Union Square.

Once thing is certain: Somerville auto repair has changed forever!

Through the years we have provided the finest automotive service to our friends in the area. How? Mike made a pledge back in 1980 that he still stands by today - be honest, be fair, and arm our customers with knowledge.

It is because of this pledge that we have been so successful. It is why so many women in the area have chosen us to take care of their vehicles. It is why we are the only automotive shop in the State to be named a Super Service Award winner by Angie's List!

We've spent 30 years fighting the big pricey dealerships. We hear the horror stories from our new customers, many of whom always got gouged at the dealer. And who ultimately, end-up very happy with us. That makes us just as happy!

30 years of success! 30 years of making new friends and helping people! Sounds like a reason to celebrate - wouldn't you agree?

We've got some plans...stay tuned!
