Corned beef reigns supreme in this cafeteria style deli. The line moves quickly as there are numerous experienced staff behind the counter. Savor each delicious bite.

They are big. You'll need about 3 napkins to mop up the mess. Come early. Went with the combo sarnie and it was a great mix of tender and well seasoned pastrami. We also had the grilled chicken breast with bacon which was fantastic. Big bit of solid chicken breast. For $13 a go, they aren't the cheapest but they... More

Melt in your mouth sandwiches...the pickles are unusual, but I loved them. Are they homemade? The older man taking your order was on the arrogant side, so next time I am in town I will give another business my business. I do not like arrogance.

I enjoyed my Roast Beef sandwhich but my mother thought her Tomato and Bacon Tuna Melt was just ok. And the two cups of clam chowder soup tasted watered down. All that and a cup of iced tea came to $40. For that price, dare I say that I expected more?

Lunch time in Boston? feel like Deli? ... try Sam LaGrassa but you need to know what to expect, basically no service and no seating at peak lunch hours. If your are lucky (....and patient), you may get a seat in a shared table together with some other 25 patrons. The good part is: sanwiches are excellent, you can see... More

Absolutely fun experience. I loved their pastrami varieties. Cooked to impress. The service at the place was great too. The place is good to have a bellyful of sandwich servings. It can be crowded depending on when you are visiting. When we visited it was just getting vacant off its lunch time customers, so we could easily find a decent... More

We were a bunch of Filipino tourists just trying to look for a place to eat. We found Sam Lagrassa's and their "world's number 1 sandwiches" tagline definitely lured us in. The place was packed with the lunch crowd but the food was worth waiting in line for. Ordered the chipotle pastrami. Now, I'm not a big sandwich eater. So... More

I had the pastrami Diablo and not was it great. Service was fast an courteous and the portions were just right. Expect to pay $17 for sandwich, chips, and a soda but the quality is well worth it!

I am well into my 60's. I have had Pastrami, Corned Beef, Brisket, etc., since childhood. I was encouraged to stop at Sam La Grassa's by several persons like myself that have had an affinity for those previously mentioned meats. My yearly New England journey had Sam's as one of my "must visits" on this trip. I was amazed. The... More

Great place to grab sandwiches but try to avoid the lunch rush. Our office often gets delivery which makes things much easier. The sandwiches and salads are great!
