These 9 Places In Boston Make The Best Sandwiches EVER
As a city, Boston specializes in sandwiches. It doesn’t matter whether you know them as subs, grinders, or spuckies, restaurants here do them right. Look around, you’re probably within a few hundred feet of a great sandwich at this very moment. That being said, there are some spots that sandwich lovers
need to visit. Here are 9 of them:
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
1. Monica’s Mercato (North End)
Before you even take a bite, the alluring scent of this little sandwich store will get your stomach rumbling. Here you’ll find hefty Italian sandwiches, served on super fresh bread. Unlike many sandwich spots, this store stays open until 11:00 p.m. Monica’s Mercato is located at 130 Salem Street in Boston.
2. Sam LaGrassa’s (Downtown)
You can’t discuss sandwiches without mentioning Sam LaGrassa’s, a family-run eatery that’s been in business since 1968. There virtually isn’t an award or endorsement that this place hasn’t received, from everyone from The Travel Channel to
Nightline. Try the pastrami or corned beef. You’ll find Sam’s at 44 Province Street in Boston.
3. All Star Sandwich Bar (Cambridge)
For comfort food with one heck of a kick, order the Atomic Meatloaf Meltdown. This sandwich features grilled meatloaf, red onion jam and Jack cheese, all smothered in the house’s habanero hot sauce. All Star Sandwich Bar is located at 1245 Cambridge Street in Cambridge.
4. Pennypacker’s Fine Foods (Somerville)
If you order one thing at Pennypacker’s, make it the porchetta. Diners adore the skin-on roasted pork (pictured) that makes this sandwich a star. Chase down the Pennypacker’s
or go straight to the restaurant located at 514C Medford Street, Magoun Square, in Somerville.
5. Cutty’s (Brookline)
This tiny shop may not have been serving up gourmet sandwiches for long, but the owners of Cutty’s have developed some scrumptious dishes – no surprise since the couple met working at America’s Test Kitchen.
Once a month, ravenous diners descend on this restaurant for Super Cluckin’ Sunday, when it’s all about buttermilk fried chicken sandwiches (pictured). Show up on Saturdays for the pork fennel sandwich and, if you’re here on a weekday, you can’t go wrong with the roast beef 1000.
6. Mike & Patty’s (Bay Village)
In the market for a breakfast sandwich? Then Mike and Patty’s is THE place to go. Menu standouts include the breakfast torta and the fancy. This to-go spot is located at 12 Church Street in Boston.
7. Roast Beast (Allston/Brighton)
Can’t turn down a dare? Then we double dare you to head to Roast Beast to try the Thermonuclear Challenge – scarfing down a sandwich drenched in the restaurant’s insanely spicy sauce in just five minutes. For a milder experience, stick to one of the store’s established roast beef sandwich combos or build your own. Roast Beast is located at 1080 Commonwealth Avenue in Boston.
8. Blunch (South End)
Blunch excels at egg sandwiches at breakfast. Later in the day, order one of the pressed sandwiches or bagel-based creations. You’ll find Blunch at 59 E Springfield Street in Boston.
9. Pauli’s (North End)
Opt for a hot buttered lobster roll or one of Pauli’s sandwiches, like the yummy Vito sub, at this beloved North End eatery. Pauli’s is located at 65 Salem Street in Boston.
These restaurants are ideal places to start your quest for Boston’s best sandwich. Which spots would you add to this list?
