    The sandwich of your dreams. Get the Bomb (all the meats, all the cheeses) or Italian Combo. Perfectly layered, delicious bread, and as big as your forearm. And they're under $10!

    If you're in Astoria try out a sandwich called "The Bomb" at this local sandwich shop. This 12-inch masterpiece comes filled with literally All The Meat—ham, salami, turkey, roast beef, mortadella. Read more

    Their sandwiches are huge, each one is enough for 3-4 servings. The best ones are the bomb, italian and their shrimp salad.

    The sandwiches are AMAZING, the prices are very reasonable, and the staff are sandwich artists. If you haven't been here yet, I encourage you to do so! One tip, though: It's cash only.

    Order yourself a “The Bomb” sandwich. It essentially has all the Italian deli meats plus the toppings you want :). The sandwich is HUGE & piled high. Can make 4 smaller ones. This place is cash only!

    Home of "The Bomb" -- by far the most bang for your buck sandwich with EVERYTHING on it that can keep you fed for days. Great service too, staff is super quick and friendly.

    the bomb probably had too much mayo and mustard for me but you will probably love it

    Easily the best Italian heroes in Astoria, possibly Queens, and if you catch me on a good day right after finishing an Italian Combo...I might stretch a little and say all of New York.

    There are no seats. The bomb is a massive sandwich that can easily feed 2. The bomb is a meaty sandwich, I like the sesame bread. CASH ONLY

    I question anyone that doesn't get the Italian combo (with hot peppers of course!). I mean that's what the cop, fireman, and construction worker standing in line in front of you just ordered!!!

    I don't know how they do it, but they elevate cold cut sandwiches to a whole new level. And "The Bomb" is legendary in the neighborhood. Park on the sidewalk across the street. City worker hangout.

    Pro tip: if you order the Bomb (and you should) make sure you have a friend or three to split it.

    This place has been around for like 50 years. Nothing but Boar's Head here. Cash only though. Get a bag of onion rings with your sandwich. You'll thank me.

    The Bomb!!! Best sammich for $7.75 and portion size to feed 2. Ask for sweet peppers as well.Avoid weekday lunch hours, line can be very long! Also no seating for dining.

    *CASH ONLY* This place is an Astoria staple. Of course you'll need to get The Bomb because it really is "the bomb" but beware, it's huge.

    Their sandwiches are ridiculous. A large one can feed a family of four. Seriously, be careful.

    The sandwiches are huge, so definitely share. They pile on the meats & cheeses. Very delicious but can get messy. But hey, what do you expect from a sandwich?!? :) Go get one!

    Tell them everything you want on your sandwich. I was behind a couple ladies who just ordered their meat. They thought they'd be asked what toppings they want after. This isn't Subway, ladies.

    The bomb is huge. I have a hefty appetite, but if you add a side of chips, this one sandwich could be two meals.

    Enormous portions and you can mix and match meats too! I usually get roast beef, prosciutto, cappicola, white american, mayo, mustard, hot peppers, and oil and vinegar. This is the sandwich God eats

    This is "The Sandwich King Of Astoria" for a reason. You know that episode of 30 Rock where the staff gets sandwiches from a deli in Queens? I'm 99% positive it's supposed to be Sal Kris & Charlie's.

    All the sandwiches are great! Have them cut the heroes into quarters so they're easier to eat and save for later or share with friends.
