Super Italian Deli, Caterer, Butcher Shop

Chicken Cutlets, Sausages, Steak Tips are my favorite to buy and cook at home. When I'm in a hurry, I pick up their Manicotti, Lasagna, and Roman Artichokes--YUM!

If you go to Bob's and order an Italian Sub with the works, you should be very hungry or have a friend to share it with. Same goes for most of the other subs. The meatballs are huge. They have been doing this for many years and I haven't seen the quality change.

Every once in a while we have to go to the best place to buy a sandwich or other food products. I've been going to Bob's since I was a little guy - that was a long time ago. We order tray's of eggplant during the holidays - awesome! Today we had a craving for eggplant palm and an italian... More

I have going there since I was a young man. I also had my son's christenings, confirmations catered by Bob's. Probably the best cold cuts around. If you need authentic Italian anything, try Bob's, you won't be disappointed. Oh, try the steak, cheese, mushroom, and onion on a jumbo braided roll, it will make you slap your Mama.

This is a local spot, but well known. Best Italian products you can find. It has the best sandwiches in Boston Area. Some North End Places may compete, but I will put Bob's against any of them. Not really a destination for out of owners, so not sure this review will do anything, but if you live within 20 mile... More

Authentic Italian food at its finest. Bob's is a neighborhood find with all the necessities needed for a lover of good cooking. We were able to get hot sandwiches to go and top it off with homemade "lovers knots". (light based cookie with a hint of anisette and frosted with a simple glaze of powdered sugar and lemon). The meatballs... More

Ordered take out from this place & let me just say I am NOT impressed. I got the steak & veggie stir fry & everything is so dry, flavorless & the Teryaki sauce on the meat is strange tasting. Doesn't seem like the typical review for this place though, so it may be a one time thing.

The value for the amount of food you get is very reasonable. What I dislike is that the store is always crowed.

Bobs is a great caterer and he has the best cold cuts, meals and a lot of other things to go.try his sub sandwiches. The sirloin tips are great!
