The sandwiches are unreal. I have since gone vegetarian, but occasionally the thought of the rubens make want to reconsider.

Sam LaGrassas is the only place to get a NYC deli style sandwich in Boston. The pastrami and Corned beef are unreal. The only downside: the hours. Open only for lunch, only during the week.

We overheard someone on the street outside our hotel telling someone about a great sandwich joint just on the street behind us. We tried it for lunch the next day and we were not disappointed. The sandwich was big enough for my husband and I to share. We asked for the Rueben made with turkey and they willingly made it... More

Oh why have I waited so long to review here. I keep forgetting to. That's why. The only sandwiches I order here is the pastrami traveler and the pastrami Diablo both are great. Sneaky tip. Phone your order in and pick it up at the side door. Skip skip skip that long lunch line at the front door

I had a Corned beef/Pastromi combo that was wonderful. If I got it again I would have it grilled. That was my only complaint. It was enough for two lunches.

I've been going to this classic sandwich shop for more than two decades and it never disappoints for those looking for world-class Rumanian Pastrami and Corned Beef. The sandwiches are outstanding and worth the occasional wait. In an era when so many restaurants have changed in the downtown area, it's great to see this classic stay true to its roots... More

The sandwiches here are legendary and the best in town. Highly recommend a stop here. Not open on the weekends as they cater to the 9-5 crowd so make an effort to get there during the week.

Not sure if we've had better sandwiches. Super legit. Roast beef was amazing. Seemed like everything there was good. Prepare for a line; but moves pretty fast.

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.
