I come home to Southie bi-anually, St. PATRICK'S Day and usually in the fall, I live 650 miles away so I get as I can of Rondos when I come home. The biggest, the vest, and the freshest subs! I wish I could bring Rondos back to Ohio, I grew up here and the best food is right here in... More

This is considered by my colleagues as the best Sub shop in Boston. I have to admit that the sandwich is indeed a tasty one and the fries were well cooked, but nothing exceptional. The veggies and meet are fresh, and taste good. The service though was so kind and patient, that I just had to tip extra the guy... More

My expectations were set high, immediately, because a long time friend from South Boston said this place was amazing, and I HAD to try it. My experience wasn't that great. I found this place to be average, if that. I have been MANY sub shops that blow this place out of the water.

My second morning in Boston and rather than do the tourist trail I opted for a leisurely breakfast and a few episodes of Scrubs in my friend's apartment. I fancied a pastrami sub and a large mocha cappuccino. Rondo's was literally a hop skip and jump away from my friend's place on Broadway. As soon as I walked in I... More

After seeing an Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations show which featured this place I had added it to my must visit list for the area. When you walk in you are basically right at the counter / open kitchen area. There aren’t many tables around however they appeared to be doing a lot of takeout business. Over the tables is a...

I've been going to Rondo's for over 20 years now. It is the BEST sub shop in the entire city of Boston. I would highly recommend the steak and cheese, the cheeseburger baskets, the french fries but hands down...the best thing there is the tuna salad. i dont' know what they put in it but OMG you can eat it...

Had a Steak and Cheese sandwich with mushrooms, green peppers and onions. The meat was tender. The veggies were fresh and the roll was excellent. The fries were huge but nothing special. Filled me up and very reasonable in price.

Really good really stuffed sub. My work sent me. 9 sandwiches and 8 of them were steak bombs! We go there once a month just for this. It is all cooked up fresh and hot. Note: call ahead because lunchtime is packed. Worth the trip. A working man's sub.

We saw this little place on No Resvervations with Anthony Bourdain and had to try it out. The steak and cheese sandwich and fried onion rings are amazing! Anthony never fails us and this is an example of that. Be ready for not a lot of seating and paying in cash though. They don't stay open super late.. like 6... More
