Incredible sandwich. The pastrami corned beef combo was one of the best ever. Fresh bread. Go early. Only open for lunch.

While all the sandwiches at Sam LaGrassa's are pretty good, the stand out item to order is the half sour deli style pickles. I will make a trip there just for the pickles!

Very impressive. Ordered a pastrami sandwich. It was fantastic. Too much for me to eat. They added some caramelized onions to it. Very good. I also had the fries and cole slaw. I'm not a big fan of cole slaw and almost never eat it. But I ate all of it. The fruits were probably the weakest part of the... More

Crazy busy but fast and efficient. Fresh breat great ingredients what more could you ask for. If the special is brisket you have to try it and no teeth required it is so tender. The Asiago Turkey is the bomb as well.

Sandwich more than enough for two people. Really liked the toasted bread. Better than the New York deli's I've been to. Awesome sandwiches. Line goes fast. Good and friendly service even though very busy.

This was a perfect spot for a summer lunch. The view is incredible and the restaurant has a great open feeling with full length sliders on 3 sides.. Even though we ate inside, the sliders were open and we got a great breeze. The service was excellent. Cheri was our main server and she was so attentive and no problem... More

The previous reviews provided check out. This place is awesome! Sam LaGrassa's made me the best sandwich I have EVER had! My bother-in law said the same thing. I had the Jumbo Rubin- so good!! Sure- this place is busy and small but there is usually a good reason for busy. We arrived at around 11:30am- and were served right... More

We have been here several times in the last few months and they are always busy and their sandwiches are always delicious. You can't go wrong with any choice. They are a little pricey, but you really get what you pay for. It is almost enough for two meals........well almost. They are so good I couldn't stop eating.

My roast beef sandwich was amazing. I just couldn't stop until it was all gone. My son loved the chowder. We got there about. 11:30 am and service was quick. I will go back before. I leave Boston.
