There’s a lot to like about The Automatic in Kendall Square, starting with the cheap shot-and-a-beer combinations that involve beer you actually don’t mind drinking, and continuing through an interesting menu of bar junk food. The flat-patty burgers are great and you’ll be tempted to double-fist the Korean fried chicken sandwiches as you order another tiki drink.
