“Medford gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

No visit to Medford should be without a visit an Bob's but don't expect it to be a quick visit. Once inside you eyeballs will widen at the wonderful display of Salads and meats at the deli counter. It is difficult to limit yourself to just one or two items. The meats are extremely fresh and tasty. the butcher carries several marinated cuts that are excellent for the grill and their steaks and pork chops are fab. As you trail to the register the fridges are filled with fresh pastas and the best ravioli, a must have for your basket. Compared to some places, Bob's price tag is a bit high but Quite worth it.

“Best sandwich you'll ever eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Delicious!!! I've been a fan for 35 years.

Sandwiches are on fresh scali rolls. Everything is made to order. Best steak and cheese anywhere (real, NOT shaved steak!). Fantastic chicken and veal parm (meat is deep fried while you wait). Excellent sauce and meatballs. Not only sandwiches and pasta dinners. . .amazing fresh meat department including a large variety of marinated/barbecue meats (steak, pork, chicken and turkey tips) to bring home for your own cookout! Excellent deli department and fresh pastas. Lots of Italian groceries too.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

Great subs, delicious meats, sausages, steak tips and more. No eating area it's a sandwich shop, great for lunch or meats from the butcher.

“Always Fresh and Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Been living in Medford for 50 years and frequently bought cold cuts and sandwiches and ordered deli trays for parties. Always fresh and presented well. My daughter has moved an hour away and when here for a visit and a "quick eat," it's always some sandwich from Bob's. You won't be disappointed.

“Great Italian grocery and takeout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Not a sit down restaurant. Lovely imported Italian groceries and prepared entrees, sandwiches, pastas and salads.
