Lunch was okay and very filling. But, we were disappointed after reading other reviews. Food quality was only average. In a great food town like Boston, there are many better options. On a positive note, the service is friendly for such a busy place and the portions are huge.

We ate here twice in 3 days for lunch it was that good ! Be prepared to wait during busy lunch hours as the queue stretches out into the street at times but trust me it's well worth the wait. The sandwiches are huge as me and my partner shared one and were still full after.

Though crowded, found a spot right away. The famous Rumanian pastrami sandwich is that for a reason! Staff was nice and efficient.

I thought us Brits were supposed to be the kings of sandwiches?! Well I stand corrected - best sandwich ever. And enormous too! I had half and was so stuffed that I had to give the rest away (which pained me dreadfully!)

Is there a better sandwich place in Boston? If so please tell me as I have not found it. I always love going to a lunch meeting where they have order Sam LaGrassa's. The only unfortunate part of their catering is that they are served cold. Every once in awhile when I crave a hot pastrami sandwich I cross town... More

Cannot recommend this place highly enough - we went because we saw it on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and the food is just fab!!! I can't wait to go back to Boston just to get a Chicken parm. Try it - you won't be disappointed!

Well, yet another average Boston deli. Why is it exactly that Boston cannot support a good quality deli? I had the Roumanian pastrami sandwich with a cup of chowder. There was nothing terribly wrong with the sandwich but it simply wasn't anything special - bland, somewhat dry meat between two slices of bland, somewhat crumbly rye bread. Countless New York...

I had the pastrami / corned beef combo, and it may have been the best sandwich I have ever had. The chowder was light and fresh relative to other Boston chowders. If you are from Boston, you are lucky; I would be a regular to this deli. As a visitor, it is now on my must-do list every time I... More

I have friends from Boston that placed on my list. Thank you. Weekdays only. No exaggeration the pastrami is the best ever and likely others too. Make time to eat here. If you get fries likely will not finish all. Haha.
