No visit to Medford should be without a visit an Bob's but don't expect it to be a quick visit. Once inside you eyeballs will widen at the wonderful display of Salads and meats at the deli counter. It is difficult to limit yourself to just one or two items. The meats are extremely fresh and tasty. the butcher carries... More

Delicious!!! I've been a fan for 35 years. Sandwiches are on fresh scali rolls. Everything is made to order. Best steak and cheese anywhere (real, NOT shaved steak!). Fantastic chicken and veal parm (meat is deep fried while you wait). Excellent sauce and meatballs. Not only sandwiches and pasta dinners. . .amazing fresh meat department including a large variety of... More

Great subs, delicious meats, sausages, steak tips and more. No eating area it's a sandwich shop, great for lunch or meats from the butcher.

Been living in Medford for 50 years and frequently bought cold cuts and sandwiches and ordered deli trays for parties. Always fresh and presented well. My daughter has moved an hour away and when here for a visit and a "quick eat," it's always some sandwich from Bob's. You won't be disappointed.

Not a sit down restaurant. Lovely imported Italian groceries and prepared entrees, sandwiches, pastas and salads.

I used to frequent Bob's quite a bit back when I used to live in Somerville, not too far from there, for over three years. I heard about the place from a few friends, saw the hype on Yelp, and being a lover of Italian food, decided to drive over to check it out. Upon walking in, I knew that... More

I live in Medford, so I am a frequent shopper! But anyone that visits us, always asks "can we go to Bob's? It is legendary for their Italian subs, chicken cutlet parm and more. Cold cuts and butcher shop selections are fantastic! I get the garlic, rabe and chicken sausages for the grill. Aroma in there is intoxicating!!

I've order many items from this food market. Very pricey. The food is okay. The aroma is the best part of the store when you walk in. Too congested to browse.

Thank you for visiting our store. It can be very busy at times but if you come during off-peak hours there is ample room to browse and take your time shopping around. It's a small store but we have a lot of great specialty foods to explore and you can ask for samples at the counter any time no matter... More
