Wow is what both me and my husband said after one bite of the Cajun cheese steak sub from here! You can add whatever you want to it even sausage and bacon for no up charge! Awesome! And the footling sub is only one buck more and trust me you want to get it!

I was recommended to check this place out when I moved to the area and I must say I am glad I gave ti a try. The subs are massive and stuffed to the brim with whatever you would like. The chipotle cheese steak is amazing. What is unique is it is not just subs. They have all types of... More

The best burrito for miles around. Parking can be a bit tricky but I usually just park in the gas station across the street and quickly duck in and out. Call in advance to have your order ready when you get there.

Best sub in the world - sorry Philly, this place has you beat. Try the cherry bomb or kamakazi subs and you won't be disappointed. Only 20 minutes from Logan Airport - worth the trip. Seating is outside, by the gas station but you can always eat in the car... See you next trip!

We were reluctant at first when we saw the place but we were definitely pleasantly surprised. Great subs, we ended up going back two days later. The 'chipotle steak' is excellent. Be warned, sandwiches are huge, two people can easily share a large.

I work less than a half mile from this place, and it is amazing that I've never been here before for lunch. It is by far the best Steak and Cheese sub I've ever eaten. And the subs are massive! It's a small place, and very busy, so try to get here before the lunch-time rush. They have a few... More

A hole in the wall with the best steak subs in Waltham! Try the Firecracker. Pizzas are good as well.

Carls is not the kind of place you go for a health-minded meal, in fact, it's best that you just leave any sort of calorie/cholesterol counting out of your entire trip or you'll ruin the experience. They have every possible combination of steak and cheese sub you can imagine, and they are huge -- filling an italian loaf -- huge.... More

This is a place where you get huge subs with so much inside of them. they are the best subs you can find in the area. It's not very expensive. They do take cards. There's a pretty good variety and everything is pretty good, but some things on the menu are great. Personally, I'm a huge fan of any of... More
