Beware, it's open for lunch on week days only! With that out of the way, it's an amazing place! Featured on DDD with Guy and it deserved that recognition. The food is really good and the portions are massive! Though the prices are a bit higher than anywhere else for a sandwich place. Though I can't complain because it's worth... More

I had a great visit to Sam LaGrassa's...even got to meet Sam. I had a really good chicken parm sandwich with a side of their famous potato salad. Definitely going back...will try the pastrami wrap next chance I get.

Yes, GREAT sandwiches.....really. There is a line out the door for a reason! If you are a Reuben Connoisseur like I am, then this is # 1. No, you do not go there to get right in or for the stmosphere, but for the really great sanwiches!

So delicious. They cook their own meats and slice them right there as well (to a perfect thickness). Tender, juicy, real. I had the Jumbo Reuben. My husband had the Pastrami Diablo, and then he got another pastrami sandwich to take home! The fries weren't exactly to my liking. They were thick, steak-like fries. However, I'm counting the days until... More

As a majority of the reviewers have indicated, great sandwiches. No doubt about it. Today I had today beef and it was outstanding as usual. The only complaint is there's no parking and you'll pay serious money for a sandwich. BTW the staff has been great every time I've been here!

Talk about a food coma. The sandwiches here are massive and delicious. You can't not eat the whole thing. The meats on all of the sandwiches I have tried are extremely tender and the toppings even tastier. Definitely recommend hitting Sam Lagrassa's, multiple times.

Trekking back from a freezing shopping trip and decided to pick up a sandwich from here after reading reviews. Really hoped it would be as good as reviews promised and it was! Coming from the UK we really don't do 'sandwiches' so was looking forward to tasting something amazing....I had the 'Jalapeño chicken' and it was a taste sensation! If... More

Went here today and had the corned beef sandwich which was awesome. Service moves rather fast and was right around the corner from the hotel.

This is somewhat of an institution in Boston. When I told my co workers I had lived in Boston for 8 years but hadn't had a Sam's sandwich they looked at me like I had grown a third eye and immediately worked towards rectifying it. I had eaten there several times since. Everyone swears by this place and calls it... More
