“a real good sandwich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2014 NEW

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.

“One of the Best Sandwiches Around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2014

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 makes it a worth it every now and then.

“Character, personality and taste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2014

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 and the huge, mouth-watering sandwiches they are shoving into their mouths. What we ordered was delicious and if I lived across the street like my friend I was visiting, I'd be eating from here every day and maybe even daring to stay to people watch. Every suit in the neighborhood seems to come here for lunch. An institution like this deserves its long life on the Boston food scene.

“Hubba Hubba!!! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2014

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.
