Loved it, great sandwiches. A well oiled machine and it has to be. Order at the counter,pay then depending on time of day be prepared to stand at a counter and eat but the pastrami and corned beef are worth doing whatever it takes to eat here.

My wife and I had never been here and thanks to TRIPADVISOR, we decided to give it a try. We are from the Hartford, CT area and not up here as often as we'd like to be. A little line was forming before they opened and people from all over were waiting to get in. One fellow said to us... More

Go with a friend. One orders the Cuban. One orders the Reuben. Then split with each other. Reserve 2 hours after lunch to revive from food coma. You will never forget that lunch. Best in Boston

Great lunch place frequented by locals. We had a fabulous sandwich so big we shared it. It was recommended by the guy who took our order so I couldn't tell you what it was but I believe it had corned beef in it. Very busy.

We went to Sam's because of the Trip Advisor ranking and because we'd seen it on DDD. They have so many unique sandwiches, as well as the more classic, basic kind. I had the one with corned beef, pastrami, Swiss, and coleslaw on light rye...AMAZING! Portions are large, we should have shared, but my husband got a roast beef with... More

Adjacent to the Suffolk University Law school, this institution is average at best. Lantana's across from the Common makes a better sandwich even without the clean cut, future bloodsuckers clogging the line waiting to gorge. No place to sit, too crowded. Make sure you wear a suit just to fit in and get a decent sandwich.

I have tried many places; NYC (3), Los Angeles (2), Las Vegas (2), San Francisco, Toronto (2), Boston (3) and Houston (1). The Corn Beef on Rye here is one of the Best if not the top. They only open 5 days a week, 11 am to 3 30 pm.

Thank Herman C

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.
