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.

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.

We ate here on our first day in Boston. The food was great - my family had pastrami and roast beef sandwiches. Kind of pricey and a bit crazy...it was hard to snag a table and difficult to maneuver in the restaurant but once you knew what to do it was okay. Again, food was great, but $50 for 4... More

My husband and I ate here for lunch while vacationing in Boston. It's a very small place and was packed. You walk up to the counter, place your order, walk along the deli line, pay, then find a table. We got the Jumbo Reuben and a Turkey Reuben Sandwich. Both were fantastic. Great flavor, a lot of meat and the... More

My son and I were up in Boston to take in a Red Sox's Game a few weeks ago. My son is a Diners, Drive-in's & Dive fan so having seen Sam's on the show we had to check it out. We got there before the lunch rush and we had a great time. He had the Ruben and I... More

The restaurant was noted by other Trip advisor reviewers to be really busy at lunch, so I waited until about 2 p.m. and there was no line. I was greeted by a very pleasant and patient person at the counter who helped me to choose the right sandwitch and another very pleasant individual when I paid. The bread was just... More

Stopped in for lunch while walking the Freedom Trail. Definitely a good decision! The sandwiches were large and tasty...after much deliberation I chose the Roast Beef Blues and it was a heavenly experience for my taste buds. You won't leave disappointed.
