Best delivered food we have had since being locked in. A little bit of Boston arriving in California. Sandwiches-Reuben, pastrami, turkey, ham all arrived well packaged and fresh. Heated up following instructions and they were perfect. Bread not soggy. Meat was outstanding. Well done Sam...Lagrassa’s. The real deal!!! Thanks for Goldbelly for the service too. Overnight shipping was flawless. Cucumber slices were a treat!More

This is one of the best places in the country for sandwiches. I just discovered their new online ordering system, complete with loyalty points and promotions. You really don't need an incentive to eat at this legendary place, it's that good, but why not sign...up. What I like is how convenient it is to place an order. I ordered my Chipotle Pastrami (my regular) while on route and it was ready, via their new "curbside pickup" area... a great addition as parking is almost impossible around there. My sandwich was a thing of beauty. Just look at the pics I snapped... so great! I eat half and save the other for the next day as the sandwiches are large. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - "Hall of Fame"More

I LOVE the Southwestern Pastrami sandwich! It has pastrami, chipotle mayo, BBQ sauce, bacon, and pepperjack cheese on grilled rye bread. I would highly recommend trying this sandwich! Also, it is a large sandwich, so it usually makes two meals for me, which makes it...more worth the price. The service is also good, and you can order ahead of time online or over the phone. I called to place an order for five people, and it was ready for me in just ten minutes!More

This place rules! Stopped in during Covid-19 restrictions, first day of phase 1 in Boston. The owner said it's been very quite during the pandemic. So odd to experience as this place is always packed... with a line. That said, the sandwich I picked up......The Chipotle Pastrami was insanely good, as it always is. I went right to my car and started eating. This sandwich is a thing of beauty... a combination that can't be beat. Just look at the photo of this sandwich... so perfect, so great. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDEDMore

This very popular deli in the financial district has the reputation for putting out delicious, hefty sandwiches. But bring your wallet. $14.95 for many of the selections.

Simply the best sandwiches in the Hub of the Universe! Classic and creative deli sandwiches prepared to perfection. Freshest bread, perfectly cooked corned beef, pastrami, roast beef, limited but great side dishes and steak fries.Great daily background music selections too. The one drawback may be...the limited seating capacity, so try to avoid 12:00-1:00pm time slot. Or in good weather, take it to go over to Boston Common! The best deli in Boston by far. A must try!More

Wonderful grilled eggplant sandwich and the spicy mayo gave it the perfect kick! Hit the spot after many drinks the night before. Yes they are known for pastrami sandwiches which looked really good as well but a few nice vegetarian options here.
