Boston isn’t known just for its baked beans and clam chowder (or “chowda” as they might call it). They also have a tradition of the best roast beef sandwiches anywhere in the U.S.! Boston’s Roast Beef piles the beef high on pillory buns and tops it with melty American cheese and a tangy sauce that only elevates the beefiness in each bite. Toasted to a heart-melting warmth, Boston’s Roast Beef is sure to warm you up on a cold night or make lunchtime luxurious! You can make enough sandwiches for everyone too, so everyone can share in the Bay State beef experience!
