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.

Currently in the process of lowering my (red) meat intake...but on those days I can make exceptions I know where I want to be...Sam LaGrassa's. I just went to Sam LaGrassa's for the first time (difficult to do if you work anywhere that's not in the city), so I had to go here on my day off. I got the... More

Whenever I'm in Boston, I have to go to Sam LaGrassa's for a lunch sandwhich. Lunch it is because of the very restricted opening times. The food makes up for it, though. The advance order via the web page is very convenient. If you've payed online, just stop by and pick up your food. Definetely one of my top 5... More

It's a super small restaurant and there was a line out the door at lunch time. The line moves quickly. I had a small salad and a toasted portobello sandwich and loved it!

Had the Reuben and the Tuesday brisket special. Both were excellent, loaded with meat and flavor. Price is in line with a large city deli, especially in the northeast which is 12-13 bucks a sandwich. Most people can easily share 1 sandwich between 2 people and be more than satisfied. Still not as good as an authentic Jewish deli in... More

This is still the best sandwich I've eaten after many years. I make sure every time I go to Boston for the weekend that I get there before they close on Friday. Their rye bread is actually better than an entire sandwich from other places, it's just that good.

Over $10 for a grilled cheese sandwich. You've got to be joking. And the food was pretty average. Certainly not the "best sandwich in the world", and certainly not worth the prices charged. Clearly they rate themselves much higher than they actually deserve.

better than average deli with a nice hectic buzz to it, but nothing compared to a good NYC deli. fair prices and decent service. good for to-go as not much in the way of seating at busy times.

Loved the Reuben, did not care for the atmosphere. Imagine a Northern take on Atlanta's Varsity and you will know what I'm talking about.
