This place has the best sandwiches, always a line out the door. Piled high with sweet, delicious pastrami and a little mustard, so good. Tip - order ahead with the Level up app or Sam LaGrassa's app if they have one...Or be prepared to wait! Either way, well worth it. Lunch and dinner all in one it is sooooo big... More

Great lunch! Amazing sandwiches! Go hungry as the portions are huge! Steak and cheese really good and for those who like a Rueben but want it healthy, they will make it with turkey (not on the menu). As hungry as I was and as good as it was, I could eat half! Wish I could have gotten just a half.... More

Expensive but you get a lot of food. Certainly one of the better quick lunch spots in the city. Food tastes pretty good and good service. Everybody in my party enjoyed it. 8/10.

I have tried this place once with a group of friends. I believe I paid 22 bucks for a cold steak sandwich french fries and a soda. They make gourmet sandwiches and were extremely crowded I don't understand what the fuss is all about. I would actually prefer the number 9 from Dangelos

We visited as the reviews were so positive on Trip advisor. It was a great experience and ticked all the boxes which we wanted ticking. The Reuben was delicious and the double beef was an experience. Id love to go back one day.

Well what can i say here that hasn't already been said... I've been going here for years. Best of just about any sandwich. If you don't know which to get, there is a board with a list of their signature sandwiches. Highly recommended. I agree, i wish the layout was better. And they could try to purchase more space upstairs... More

While it's true that Sam's has the best sandwiches, unlike any other spot in Boston thats for sure, customer service could me improved. I often ask them to remove an ingredient or two because of allergies, and they usually get it wrong and I have to get it remade, which wastes time. If it wasnt for this, I would for... More

Excellent sandwiches and fries. All hot and fresh. Ultimate Reuben was as good as I've ever had and I lived and worked in NYC for years and have eaten at all the serious NY delis many times. I could only eat half and took the rest home for my dinner. My son's Pastrami was huge and delicious. Sam's is a... More

As long as you're not a vegan, a plant based person, etc... the Chipolte Pastrami should be required eating for anyone within a 50 mile radius of Sam LaGrassa's... it's the perfect sandwich. I wasn't super hungry but couldn't resist a stop here, so had half and wrapped the other half to go... the sandwich is filling. Warning: Sam LaGrassa's... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
