Poll: Bob's or Dave's Fresh? A Somerville/Medford Showdown

Which is your sandwich shop of choice?

If you're picking a place to pick up a sandwich for lunch and it's narrowed down to in South Medford and in Somerville's Davis Square, you can't go wrong.

Bob's is classic - a specialty shop with Italian grocery goods up front and a deli counter in the back that serves up monsterous sandwiches on braided rolls.

Dave's has fresh-made pasta - the name is no lie - but it has a lunch counter of its own with fresh ingredients and tasty bread.

But - if you had to pick between the two, which is the sandwich for you?

(Do you have another go-to sandwich spot in Medford or Somerville? Tell us in the comments.)

The P & K on Beacon St. on the Cambridge/Somerville line near the Beacon St. Shaws makes THE BEST SUBS. Braided rolls and freshest meats and condiments (onions, tomatoes, pickles, hot peppers). Been going there for years and the quality has never wavered.

Oh come on really there's no comparison. Dave's is far superior. Just because Bob's sandwiches are huge doesn't make them better. Dave's pays serious attention to the quality of ingredients (and their sandwiches are still very big). There are a thousand Bob's around. There's only one Dave's. Seriously no comparison.

What about the Medford Deli in West Medford? By far, my favorite.

I second Medford Deli and the Italian sub at La Cascia (Medford) is the best I've ever had!

I haven't ever been to Bob's, but I do love Dave's for sandwiches and groceries. They have an excellent selection of local goods, cheese and wine.
