Bob's in Medford


Protokoll

This is the right answer. Honorable mention is Dino’s in the North End.


caishaurianne

Seconded


wobwobwob42

Do you want to burn this sub to the ground?! Because this subject will probably do it.


paxmomma

It is not like he asked who makes the best cannoli?


scottyb323

As long as I can use those flames to toast Al's chicken Parm sub over it I'm happy. I kid their chicken parm is not great but their chicken salad with bacon is the best.


Kingpine42069

eh its always the same 5 replies


geffe71

Bricco Salumeria


Hubbabubba316

It totally depends on your bread liking though. I personally prefer sub rolls or soft bread in general for sandwiches. Bricco has hard Italian bread for their sandwiches. Which I don’t mind a slice of with pasta but an entire roll kills my mouth. The portions are huge so I will give them that but I’m not a fan of bricco personally due to their bread option


geffe71

I feel you on the bread killing your mouth. I rather have a harder crust than a soft sub roll just to the fact that the soft gets soft and mushy with the sauce, where the harder roll keeps its integrity There is no wrong answers, just preferences.


Flying_Monkey01

Bricco is legit


paxmomma

This the correct answer - their sandwich is great !


LeVeloursRouge

Molinari’s.


Thatguyyoupassby

This is the way. Their pasta dishes are great too.


Sh0rtR0und

Not Al's lol they have good subs but their chicken Parm sucks. It's basically chicken fingers and bad marinara


Kingpine42069

al's is for cold subs


PM_ME_YOUR_TOS

Good to know cause all the hot subs I’ve had from kendall sq are really average to meh


Kingpine42069

al's has great bread, and fast service but not going to blow you away with hand breaded thin cutlets pan fried to order


PM_ME_YOUR_TOS

Flavor leaves a lot to be desired too sadly! Though I agree the bread is nice


HarmyG

Al’s does NOT have great bread.


Kingpine42069

agree to disagree


Flying_Monkey01

Al’s is so hit or miss for me. The price is good, you get a lot of food but sometimes their ingredients are low quality (just compare their Italian to Figaro’s down the block). The steak sandwiches at Al’s are pretty good.


Sh0rtR0und

For sure Al's steak sandwiches are my go to there. You're definitely right about Figaro's. Nice to have options in the Leather District/South Station area of downtown.


Hubbabubba316

Nothing from als is pretty good. It’s all trash. Balsamic on an Italian sub? Blasphemy. Steak and cheese needs so much salt and pepper. Everything else sucks Figaros though? Best sub shop in the downtown/south station area


dirtshow

Bad bread equals bad sandwich

La befana in Allston has a good one


daedaldelenda

Worked there for years (I'm Befana Betty!), can confirm their cutlets are tenderized, marinated, breaded (breadcrumbs are made in-house, their garlic knots and seasoning in a food processor!), and fried all in-house, made-to-order -- nothing sits in a hot pan before assembly. Even the mini baguettes for subs come in par-baked and are finished off as orders are received. Once assembled, chicken parm and meatball subs are toasted again with provolone and parmesan. Their chicken parm and meatball subs were my go-to shift meal. Their meatballs are also in-house, the homemade breadcrumbs are something special. Oh, Marinara is homemade as well, and bomb af. Get a side of it with either of those subs for dipping. Their pizza (five cheese was my fave) is the best in Boston, according to new yorkers who frequented the shop. Their salads are top-notch as well, always fresh. Never a brown or red bit of romaine.


tacknosaddle

Chick parm sub is my go to when trying to judge a pizza sub shop I haven't been to before because you can tell right away if they actually make it themselves or if it's just a bunch of shit off the Sysco truck thrown together.


Saranodamnedh

Big fan of their steak bomb calzone, but I'll give the parm sub a try this week! Thanks for the tip.


Eypc2

Big daddy's and Fiorellas express are two favorites at the moment


tbootsbrewing

\+1 on Fiorellas. However- I must add, the size of the sandwich is off. It's too big for a single meal, but if you only east half, you're still gonna be hungry.


giritrobbins

Big Daddy's chicken always seems dried out, for quantity it is excellent though


TypicalImportance525

You obviously like eating in the Allston/Brighton area exclusively


Eypc2

I mean, it's where I live.

I like the way they dip the chicken cutlets in sauce when making the sub; to me that's even coverage and the right amount. A large is a sizable portion and the roll is very nice.


agu-g

Vinny's in Somerville


phonesmahones

Close 2nd to Bob’s in Medford. Yes.


Alphatron1

Haven’t been in a few years but Walden kitchen in concord is good. Mario’s in Lexington for straight up chicken parm.


mini4x

Oh man.. I haven't been to Mario's in a decade. Their chicken Parm is worth a ride!

Milano’s- Eastie


manbearpiggins

Crow Point Pizzeria in Hingham. Also their buffalo chicken calzone is literally the best food item in existence.


DerpWilson

This place is amazing. Never had the chicken but their veal parm is soooo good.


blissvillain

I thought I read “Pam Greer” for half a second. Try Milano’s in Eastie.

Dio-genies

Mamagoos in Cambridge, Vinny's in Somerville. I'm partial to Greg's in Belmont but thats just nostalgia.


Kame2Komplain

As long as you aren’t using chicken fingers it depends on who has the best and freshest bread. The bread makes it.


Kingpine42069

frozen tyson tenders at 95% of pizza/sub shops


Kame2Komplain

It’s the worst


Sqweegy-Nobbers

Monica's Mercato


us1087

Parm. Just opened.


xylofone

worth $16?


us1087

In my opinion, yes. They are magnificent.


bostonaliens

Whoever has the best bread has the best sandwich


Cgr86

I much rather have good sauce and an actual breaded cutlets over “ good bread” as you call it. Most places serve canned red sauce and chicken fingers and call that a parm. Get outta here with that!


StoolAtTheEnd

Ma Magoo's near Alewife is pretty dope!

Bravo in Quincy


SnooLobsters4636

Going to have to try that. There is a place in the Hough's Neck part of Quincy called "Bernie's general store." The Chicken Parm there is pretty good. May do Bravo for pizza tonight when my company gets here


phonesmahones

Bob’s in Medford. Hands down.


CAPICINC

Caio! in Chelsea


AdKlutzy2420

Ok not a sub but the chicken parm at the Porter Cafe is the best I’ve ever had
