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
