“If you are expecting carnegie deli it's not but that's not a bad thing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2012

Being from NY i always rate a deli in comparison to Carnegie Deli. And this does fall short of Carnegie in terms of the size of the sandwich and the prices. The sandwich is reasonablly sized and priced and also is delicious. I had the Cuban and it was flavorful and nicely stuffed with out being overstuffed. I would say this is a don't miss place for lunch if you are in beantown. Go at 3pm to beat the crowds as there are usually losing lines and not much room to eat inside.

“Damn good sandwich and fast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

This place knows how to balance speed with goodness and they did it without making you feel rushed or like an idiot while you try to pick your sandwich and toppings (you know what I mean). At first it may seem like there is not enough room to sit, but they move people through so quickly that you'll probably find a place to sit (rubbing elbows of course) and enjoy a really good sandwich. It is in the heart of the tourist and business district so it is not cheap eats, but worth it considering the food quality.
