I finally go to go to Sam LaGrassa's. My last few visits to Boston they were closed by the time I thought about going. This place was great. Diablo pastrami was awesome. Pastrami was cooked perfect and loaded on the sandwich. Clam chowder was great too. Actually had clams in it, unlike other places. Highly recommend going here.

Here's a place to get quality and quantity in a sandwich. Mostly oriented to meat (corned beef, pastrami, steak, turkey, etc...) but also with some salads. Family style eating and lines at lunchtime.

I like meat, but this was for the HARD CORE meat lovers out there. I use to work in town and have been to this establishment on numerous occasions and every time I ordered a sandwich I always felt it was way to much meat for me, but I guess this is what the establishment is all about.

Stopped in for lunch about 1pm, crowded but no line to speak of. Ordered a roast beef and their Romanian pastrami which is the favorite of their customers. My wife said it was the best pastrami she has ever had and she knows her pastrami ! The sandwich was absolutely loaded with meat. The roast beef was piled high and... More

I guess I am in the minority here, but I really didn't think Sam LaGrassa's was anything out of the ordinary. I will say the staff was very friendly & efficient. I would have perhaps enjoyed it more if I had a different sandwich, but I felt overwhelmed and just ordered something on the fly. I got the chipotle chicken... More

it's just yummy. I know I know, "there is always a huge line". When we travel my husband will only eat at the places with a huge line! The bigger the line the better the food :-)

Go there, you won't regret. Best sandwiches I ever had. I was with a friend and we shared 2 sandwiches because we could not choose which one. Both were top-notch.
