Stopped here for lunch to take a break from the Freedom Trail and glad we did. There were 4 of us with 4 different choices and all was so good. They were quick too. Would definitely stop in again!

The sandwiches are too expensive and I could take you a dozen places with better sandwiches at a much lower cost.

Had the chipotle sandwich and the corn beef and pastrami combo. both filling and excellent. The guy serving is a tad grumpy, maybe he was just having a bad day..............don't worry about the line, it goes very fast.

This is a deli not "fine dining" or a good place for a date...but everyone who has worked downtown knows where the best pastrami sandwiches in Boston are (and quite possible the best sandwiches in Boston!!!) I've been coming here for years and now that my office is in Back Bay I make the trip across Boston Common - it's... More

My wife and I went to Sam La Grassa's for lunch duing our stay in Boston. We each ordered a different sandwich, and enjoyed our lunch very much. The food was just outstanding........ We would highly recommend Sam's for lunch.

We ate here twice in our four day trip - and for good reason... LaGrassa's was on my list after reading a number of reviews on TripAdvisor. The meats in the sandwiches are excellent, as was the efficient, friendly service. The only thing I would add is that you may want to think about sharing one sandwich between you -... More

I think I could have eaten here everyday of my trip. The one and only request my mother had was to visit Sam LaGrassa's after seeing it on Diner, Drive Ins and Dives. Woah. What and amazing experience. We went on a Friday, at 2. Line out the door, I would wait hours for a sandwich from there. Such friendly,... More

One friend took us to this restaurant and it was amazing. They have many options based on the same meat, I tried one with Rumanian Pastrami and bacon, it was just great and got better after adding a bit of cole slaw in the sandwich. The parking was pricey but it's not restaurant's problem, it's normal at Boston downtown.

This place is as good as it gets for deli sandwiches. Portions are large and are of very good quality. Anytime you see police and firemen standing in line at a restaurant you know it has to be good. LaGrassa's must be an institution in Boston given the number of office workers that line up each day. There are numerous... More
