This place is amazing. I go here regularly for their delicious subs and fresh Italian ingredients to make my own dishes. I especially love their homemade pasta. Everything here is quality and authentic--it's no wonder they've been doing business for nearly a century. Do note that this place does get VERY busy, especially around the lunch hour, so it does...

The best Italian cold cuts and specialties around, a neighborhood deli-type store with old charm. Their sub sandwiches are delicious -- quality ingredients, freshly baked rolls, heaping, but manageable portions. Their butcher meats are fantastic as well -- freshly made sausages, prime cut steaks, a whole array of marinated b-b-que meats, and again, a collection of fresh breads, pasta's and... More

The sizing can be confusing as small is pretty good size, large can feed two and jumbo well you better be hungry. There steak and cheese also very good. They have... More

Love this place! It's the perfect deli, sub shop, gourmet market. High quality cuts, imported snacks, and fantastic staff. You really can't go wrong. I should add that their chicken park sub is everything!

We were looking for a late lunch and found Bob's. We had delicious sandwiches and fast friendly service. The Meatball Parm sandwich size small was huge and delicious. Our prosciutto buffalo mozzarella tomato was so tasty on fresh Italian bread! Both were oversized and we could have shared.

Flying into Boston and while talking about great places to eat in and around Boston, my wife's seat mate recommended Bob's (on Main Street in Medford MA) for carry out sandwiches, pizza, butcher items, and a very large selection of prepared and ready to prepare entrees and sides, include many imported items. It's a long narrow shop with the center... More
