If you love roast beef, this is the place to go for a sandwich! The beef is perfectly rare, and piled high. The regular is enough for a normal appetite, the large is for a healthy appetite, and one can only imagine how hungry one has to be to get the mega! They offer an impressive array of cheeses to add, as well as nice spicy pickles (other toppings as well). The list of sauces will cater to any taste, but their secret beast sauce in great. There is a counter that seats a few, but this is mostly takeout.

We have been going to Boston for more than 8 years visiting our 3 BU sons and feeding the lacrosse team. DJ and his team at Beast have perfected the simple concept of an awesome sandwich and great service. The sandwiches are piled high- depending on which size you order with a variety of toppings to choose from...no explanations needed. He delivers with a smile even when he's crazy busy and never disappoints. "Keep It Simple" should be his mantra and he'll be around for many years to come!

This place has amazing roast beef sandwiches. Some advice: do not go for the mega size as the sandwich does not end up with a good sauce ratio. Also, try combinations of sauces. The beast sauce and horsey is great.

The model is simple, but options abound. Pick a bun, pick a pile of thinly shaved meat, pick toppings and sauces, and wait about 3 minutes. It's a great model and it works. Plenty of variety within those 3 categories, so it may take you a few trips to get your favorite combination, but eating your learning curve is just fine. They have "standards" as well so maybe start there. For me it's roast beef on onion roll, tomatoes, gouda, horseradish sauce, raw onion.

Their sandwiches are some of the best. Great selection of cheeses and sauces. If you like your sandwiches spicy, get their thermonuclear sauce. It's really hot and delicious. There isn't much room to sit, but it's a great place for take out. The staff is really friendly as well.
