I go to Bob's mostly for the cold cuts. This is where I've found the best Prosciutto di Parma around. Most of the fat is trimmed and it is sliced super-thin, the way it is done in Italy. Really, you won't regret it, it is top quality. I also get regularly the Rosmary ham (prosciutto cotto al rosmarino); very delicious... More

Bob's has been a staple in Medford for a number of years. The lunch business is super and the quality on it's offerings are super. They also have an expanded deli with all the top varieties.

The quality of the food sold here is top notch and the subs and other dishes are fantastic. I grew up in this area and have been going to Bob's for well over 50 years to initially buy cold cuts and other items for my mother and then for my own family because it's the best! This isn't a sit-down... More

Small and Jumbo both come on a seeded bradied roll stuffed with all the fixings and you have yourself one of the best Italian subs you can have. Fresh cold cuts and fresh bread. It cant be beat. This is a goto when any one visits us from out of state.

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

Bob's is one of those places that I file away and pull out for a quick and satisfying sandwich. They have the best chicken and veal parm sandwiches ever. 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!
