Truly, eating at All Star reinforces the feeling that we're living in the golden age of the sandwich. Always a very creative selection of specials (Funky and Extra Funky), and a rotating day-of-the-week special. Don't ignore the standard menu, either! From their original association with East Coast Grill, they also specialize in some very hot/spicy offerings. Also a small but... More

You'll find a wide range of interesting-sounding offerings at All Star. I'm not qualified to comment specifically on anything other than the muffuletta, as that's what I've had both times I've been there, over an interval of a couple of years. The bread is excellent. I would like to have seen a bit more of the olive salad and more... More

I felt a little obligated to go here because the person we were staying with recommended it. At first I was thinking "oh just another sandwich place"... But wow. These are truly awesome sandwiches. We went back again the next day just to get yet another sandwich from the awesomely unique menu. A definite must try. And go for something... More

If you love sandwiches, this is your place. The food is delicious. The specials are usually the best. (There's one for every day of the week.) French fries are good too (thin and crispy) - and the appetizers are fun. I most recently had some good deviled eggs and hush puppies. The staff are also great at giving recommendations if... More

So I live in the UK and the wife in Boston. Every last meal we have together before I fly back is at the All Star. Their sandwiches are amazing and if anyone is in the neighbourhood, drop in!

Wasn't sure what to expect when we arrived at noon on Sunday and were the only ones there but the food and service were very good. Had the roast beef sandwich and it was excellent. We got sides of fries and spicy onion rings. Rings were hot but delicious. Waiter was helpful and friendly. All at a good price!

We got takeout here while in Cambridge. I don't usually go for sandwiches but our host suggested this place and when I saw the muffuletta, I decided to give it a try. I am obsessed with all things New Orleans. It was ok. Definitely not like you would get in New Orleans but great for up north, the olive salad... More

Absolute delicious sandwiches! I'm a big fan of the fried chicken or anything with green tomatoes on it. If they have them, don't miss the fried pickles.

Wow such tasty sandwiches. Definitely best sandwich I had during my visit to the U.S. Had the atomic meatloaf which was just the perfect combination of savory meat, perfectly toasted bread and spiciness flavor. Can't wait to try their other sandwiches on their menu when I come back.
