Name of turkey place in Lexington area??

I was born and bred in Boston and my first job after college was in Lexington in the early 80s. At lunch, we used to go to a very cool deli someone in the Lexington area that had the most amazing turkey sandwiches. The thing was called a "Tom Terrific" sandwich and was a classic thanksgiving-on-a-roll sort of thing. Doesn't anyone know what I'm talking about? By any chance does the place still exist? I have been living in NYC for the past 25 years and sometimes get cravings for these things. I will be back in Boston this summer, and you would really make an old man happy if you tell me I can experience a "Tom Terrific" again. NYC does a lot of foodie things well, turkey sandwiches ain't one of 'em!

  1. Neillios has a Turkey terrific. I don't know that it is the same, but I love that sandwich.

    Hope you find what you are looking for.

        Nellio's bought the Turkey Teriffic recipe along with the business of Gourmet Farms, so it is the same.

          Yes, that's it! Thanks peregrine and BJK -- I remember now that the place was called Gourmet Farms. I guess its Neillio's now. I will definitely drop by this summer. Thanks everyone else for the suggestions. I am so happy!

      2. if you're near north cambridge, try the "mayflower "pemberton farms on mass ave. turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce on your choice of bread.

        1. A&A Deli in Arlington Heights also does something like this.

          1. All Star Sandwich Bar in Inman Square, Cambridge, has a Gobbler with stuffing, cranberry relish, and gravy.

              The sandwich at ASS Bar doesn't come close to Nelio's.
