Picking the BEST Roast Beef Sandwiches in Massachusetts is like picking a favorite child. The tradition dates back to the early 20th century when Italian immigrants introduced the concept of thinly sliced roast beef on a roll.

The sandwiches gained popularity with many “roast beef joints” popping up. These eateries perfected the art of slow-cooked, tender roast beef, often accompanied by toppings like cheese, onions, and horseradish sauce. Today, roast beef sandwiches remain a beloved regional specialty, representing a culinary tradition deeply ingrained in Massachusetts culture.
