Fun little deli in Boston

We are just staying up the street from Sam LaGrassa's and saw it on TripAdvisor - with ratings like that, we had to try it! No regrets, that's for sure. If you love a good sandwich, bring your appetite, because the meals are huge - but oh so delicious.

It used to be that I could not go to NYC without a stop at Katz deli. Now, I say "I'll just get some pastrami at Sam LaGrassas when I get home instead", and explore other culinary adventures without a hint of remorse. It's that good, but no one needs to tell you that if you'd ever been. And if... More

My family and friends have been going to Lagrassa's for over 20 years and it is, by far, the best deli that we have ever visited. It is an old-time deli run like a cafeteria with daily specials in addition to its standard fare sandwiches. While others claim to have the best roast beef, there is really no competition.

Ordered the chicken pesto sandwich, will fill anyone up and it is delicious! They are only open for lunch M-F so keep that in mind! Wish they did lunch on the weekends!

These are the best sandwich I have tried so far. If you like BBQ, pulled pork and blue cheese the Twister Pork is one of the best options. If you are visiting Boston, this is a MUST visit place.

I don't normally give 5 stars but this deserved it. I got the chipotle pastrami and it was amazing!! It is probably enough to be split for lunch but I was a grown up about it and ate the whole thing. I can't wait for friends to visit so I can take them there!

Consistently excellent sandwiches. Best deli in the Boston area. You really can't go wrong with anything you order. Sandwiches are really large enough for two people.

Talk about a sandwich to tell your friends about. If I can make an excuse to eat "Sam's" I will. You better know any time our office caters or I'm hosting a guest from an out of town office we're going to Sam's. The food there is to die for, If I was on my death bed I would ask... More

Sam is one of those places in Boston that are super hyped and I still can't understand why! I've been in Boston for almost 20 years and I always heard local Bostonian making outrageous positive comments about this place. A lot of the reviews on Tripadvisor about Sam LaGrassa's also make the same claims. A lot of the positive reviews... More

Sam LaGrassa's has the absolute best sandwiches in Boston. Unbelievable pastrami and corned beef. The sandwiches come loaded with meat and toppings and on great rye bread. Highly recommend their potato salad too.
