Never been here and the menu is overwhelming with many good options. Any sandwich suggestions?

    I found Hot Tomatos to be just okay, but that may be me because many on this board love Carmens (I didn't) and it's the same owners. That said the pizza was filling, the staff pleasant enough, no atmosphere and nothing special.

      Pizza is filling? Yikes. Sounds like you're being nice about a place that you really don't like ;)

      I've never ventured in because whenever I'm in the north end for pizza I can never pry myself away from Ernesto's or Galleria Humberto.

        I like Eneresto' as well, but try the Waterfront Cafe for pizza and you won't be disappointed.

      They have a "sloppy joe" made with an awesome bolognese sauce and fontina cheese. Highly recommend. Be forewarned: it is huge.

        The Northender ( chicken cutlets with arugula, provolone cheese, and balsamic) is great.

          Despite my posting call letters, I am more partial to the Sloppy Joe bolognese which is awesome, than the Northender although it is very good. These are all sandwiches just crying out to be shared as they are extremely large and filling.

          I like their meatball sub and the bolognese and both are great. I have friends that rave about 1 of the veggie sandiches. I think most of their menu is very good, just comes down to what you feel like eating.

          Their prices are a little higher than many sandwich shops, but the quality of the ingredients is also higher than most sandwich shops.

            I heard that there are new owners of Hot Tomatoes. Hope they don't make too many changes.
