    Mango chicken salad is delightful. Especially "dirty" with sweet potato chips!

    This might be the best deli in Boston or perhaps the whole US. Their pastrami is worlds ahead of Zaftigs and such nice people working here too.

    Massive Pastrami Sandwiches! Very friendly owners. If you order the corned beef, have it on Rye with mustard. If you ask for different you will get a weird look

    The best Deli in Boston bar none. Puts Zaftigs to shame for half the price. although still not cheap.

    definitely beats the over-priced, over-rated zaftig's . try its famed corned beef . though the owners will ask you to leave once it gets busy since they're lacking in places to sit . Read more

    What's not to love? Reubens (on pumpernickel) are HUGE, bagels are awesome, cream soda in a bottle & a can.. & what's that? Moxie! PS-They also carry Pearl hot dogs in the freezer.
