I'm headed to Sam LaGrassa's tomorrow for the first time ...

Any recommendations on how things work at Sam LaGrassa's? I'm going for my very first trip tomorrow with much anticipation after seeing them on Diners Drive Thrus and Dives!

  1. Pastrami, corned beef or a gigantic cubano...

    1. There are two lines you can get into. The last time I was there the line was very long and someone that worked there told me to get into the take out line because it was much shorter. I did and seats became available so I was able to take my bag and sit. The Pastrami is outstanding and the potato salad is really good too. After I ate I went to The Parker House gift shop and got a Boston Cream Pie for dessert. It was all good!

      1. re: macadamianut

        Aw man, I crushed a griled turkey, ham & swiss from there today for lunch, I can still barely move.

      2. I'm a fan of the chipotle pastrami. Actually, prompted by this thread I went and had one today :)

        1. Jumbo Reuben $9.95: Corned beef with russian dressing, swiss cheese and sauerkraut grilled on pumpernickel - yum!

          1. I went twice since I last made this post I loved it so much. I got the chipotle pastrami both times, too. Ive gotten my whole office hooked on the place so I'm sure I'll be making the trek from Waltham to Boston on a regular basis.
