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.

I'm also not one to rave about sandwiches but this place is worth the hard time finding parking. It came on a recommendation from the super nice folks at Tava Chocolate (which is just around the corner). I LOVE getting local recommendations and these guys were spot on. The onion rings were some of the best I've ever had. I... More

They have an impressive menu with something to please everyone (from classics like muffalettas and Cubans to creative concoctions) The portions are big and in proportion to the price. And they serve beer and wine! I was crazy about the special I tried. "Xtra " was a fried chicken pieces with a pineapple slaw. The chicken itself was pretty tasteless... More

Great sandwiches, good side dishes. The menu is on the smaller side, but the creativity level is not! This is a pretty popular Inman square eatery. I wish they had more veggie options, but as is there is already something for everyone, from meatavores to vegetarians. Great for small groups of friends or a more casual sort of date. If... More
