They were closing down for vacation, so they had no chicken for sandwiches...I had to 'settle' for the Roast Beef Blues...WOW...great sandwich. It's a busy place, we had to stand and eat (no big deal)...but it was worth stopping there.

Try to avoid arriving right during lunch hour or you will be waiting in line and struggling to find a table. I usually get the Santa Fe BBQ sandwich, which is absolutely awesome. Everything looks good, and I've yet to hear a complaint from any of my dining companions. The only downside is the very high price, but the taste... More

Sam LaGrassa's is in the very serious business of feeding people quickly and tastily. The no-nonsense approach is order quickly, get served even faster and get the hell out. Those who stay to eat are packed in amidst the chaos of lines of hungry customers waiting for their takeout order but appear oblivious to anything except their cell phones, tablets... More

Wow!!!! Amazing sandwiches. That's all folks. Go here, try them. You'll see what I mean. Doesn't need too many words. Apparently review is not long enough - just go here and try it, you won't be disappointed.

There is plenty of food, so you won't starve. My sandwich was great, and I personally loved the corned beef on mine. At first I though it seemed a little expensive, but the size and quality is well worth it. Fast, also.

Corned beef reigns supreme in this cafeteria style deli. The line moves quickly as there are numerous experienced staff behind the counter. Savor each delicious bite.

Ate here with friends after a wet morning of sight seeing. I got the combo pastrami corned beef sandwich. Don't worry about the corn beef just get the pastrami. It's wonderful. Get it with kraut instead of coleslaw and you'll be in heaven. Pricey but worth it!

They are big. You'll need about 3 napkins to mop up the mess. Come early. Went with the combo sarnie and it was a great mix of tender and well seasoned pastrami. We also had the grilled chicken breast with bacon which was fantastic. Big bit of solid chicken breast. For $13 a go, they aren't the cheapest but they... More

Melt in your mouth sandwiches...the pickles are unusual, but I loved them. Are they homemade? The older man taking your order was on the arrogant side, so next time I am in town I will give another business my business. I do not like arrogance.
