Very good cheese steak on a fresh roll

Small place with tight seating. Very quick and friendly service. When I walked in, and it was obvious I was a first timer, the manager or owner said, "try the steak and cheese, it's the best around."

I'm obsessed with the tuna salad here. I don't know what they put in it, but I've loved it for years. I used to order it at least once a week when I lived in Medford. It's probably the one thing I miss most since I moved to Stoneham. I will try to find a reason to drive down Highland... More

I didn't realize how much I loved the Big A until I moved away from the Malden area. I miss being able to just run in after work and bring home some delicious subs. Their deli meat is thinly sliced, flavorful and always fresh. If you're really hungry, try one of the dinner plates (Chicken Bob is my favorite). They... More
