“The Best”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Wow, the high rated reviews are on point. This was the best sandwich (pastrami on rye) I have ever had. As a native of NYC, this place ranks as the best. They keep the line moving so don't be discouraged if it is crowded. They could charge more and it would still be worth it.

“Fantastic Sandwiches”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We ordered several sandwiches, based on the recommendations of those who worked there. We enjoyed them very much! Two sandwiches that we tried, the Chipotle Pastrami and Triple Club, were possibly the best sandwiches that we have eaten, anywhere. Highly recommend!

“Best deli sandwich ever!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

If you like a great deli, this is a must. Try to beat the lunch rush and arrive before noon if possible.
Loved the corned beef pastrami combo & the chicken grilled veggie wrap.

“Great Sandwiches”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Went to Sam LaGrassa's for lunch on our day trip downtown. Arrived early to avoid the lunch crowd and it was already crowded. The place is very unassuming with limited tables. Basically order your food and bring it yourself to your table. We had the pastrami, Cuban, roast beef and turkey sandwiches with clam chowder soup and cole slaw. The food was delicious and among the best sandwiches I've eaten. Portions are fairly big so it suggest ordering at least one fewer per head count. A must for anyone

“GREAT Sandwiches”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

This is our 37th different Diners Drive-ins and Dives visit. We were impressed with how busy it was between 1-2 PM. My wife and I SHARED the Reuben. The sandwich was so large it was plenty for both of us. This was a GREAT sandwich. I also sampled BBQ Pastrami Melt, very good. The locals know how this place works. You can spot an out of towner, like us, right away! Service was fast and friendly.

Seating was hard to find for 4 of us but we did find a table. There is a row of tables all pushed together in the middle so if you go by yourself or with a friend you may find yourself sitting at a table with a bunch of other folks but those doing so seemed to enjoy it.

I would like to try some of the other sandwiches if I ever get back to Boston.

Make sure you find this place if you are ever in Boston.
