2007 Best Car Wash

Allston Car Wash

When you were a kid, the car wash was a magical journey through a world of gigantic brushes, gushing foam, and torrents of water. Now that you’ve joined the ranks of car-owning adults, it takes considerably more to impress you—namely, scrupulous hand-drying and endless service options (including detailing). You’ll find it all at this time-and-again favorite, known for cheerful professionalism minus the up-selling.
