Had an excellent pastrami on marbled rye for eating at the counter. Recommend this place heartily. A short walk from Orthopedic Associates (heh, heh) and just off 295 (Congress Street West).

We ate lunch here today. We chose Ananias over Amatos this time because my family believes Ananias makes a better Italian Sandwich. It was a very good sandwich but my husband and I could detect no difference between the two! We would return.
