I have been a fan of Bob's for 20 years, and have family who travel from Weston to get Bob's steak tips. Last two times I went to Bob's for coldcuts, I had an older woman with 3 inch nails cut my $ 50.00 worth of deli meat with ungloved hands. The first time this happened the manager saw this happening and quickly offered to recut the cold cuts. He was apologetic and told me that she usually wears gloves. He clearly was mortified. Less than a month later, I returned for more cold cuts, and the same lady, ungloved began to cut my imported salami. I am sad to say, I am done with Bob's and regret that experience. Bob's is an icon for the city of Medford, and my family and I will miss it.

Bob's has gone so down hill and has overpriced itself.
We were charged $8.95 for burnt chicken fingers, reheated fries and a warm salad. Another night the chicken broccoli was the best I have ever had. Next time ordered the Seafood and there was nothing to it. We moved here four years ago and thought it was great to have such an awesome place to stop on the way home. We don't go anymore.

I've always been in love with Bob's Italian Foods in South Medford. It feels like one of those little markets you might find on a movie set for a flick that takes place in Brooklyn from long ago, where everyone knows everyone else and nearly every kind of Italian food item can be found on their shelves and behind the counters.

The pastas are outstanding at Bob's (the tortellinis may be my favorite of them all) and the sandwiches are better than any you'll find in your everyday generic sub shop. And the best time to go to Bob's? Right around Christmas, especially when it's snowing out. The feel of walking into the warm, well-lit store on a cold, crisp day to get some ziti, olives, pesto, or cheese is something you won't soon forget.

Pros: excellent pasta, great sandwiches

My wife and I have been regular customers at Bob's, most of the time bringing home a filling meal/sandwich after working all day. The one drawback is their saute station. It has been hit or miss with their cream based sauces, many times being on the watery side, despite their use of heavy cream and fresh cheese. The proper use of a slurry (thickening agent) would do wonders so the sauce will set up and not run all over the place.

Let me first say that Bob's has a fantastic reputation. People come from miles around to get their subs and I agree that they are fantastic!

However, I was disapointed with their catering. We ordered catered trays from Bobs for a family party. The food was very tasty and the decorative trays made for a nice presentation. However, the calzone tray was cold (not what were expecting.) They didn't include grated cheese for the pasta - this was probably an oversight. The chicken & ziti was hot and flavorful but didn't wow me. Overall, I thought we overpaid for what we received.

I will call them again for subs and deli platters but I won't call them for catering trays.

If you want a real Italian place-go to the north end in Boston. The deli help is all from south america and more than half of them don't properly understand English. The store is poorly air conditioned and quite honestly I think the owners write there own reviews.
Like i said BOBS IS OVERREATED

This place has the best pasta take-out, subs and deli. Plus the bbq fresh meats and homemade sausages are to die for, like heaven! The ziti, chicken & broccoli for catering is my families favorite. All reasonably priced and top quality delicious Italian gem!

I love the subs and the smells, nice place a little crowded but that is what good food brings. I enjoy the specials and try the cold cuts.

I knew I made a good decision going here when I saw the line at the deli counter. I called the day before to order the 6 foot sub. I ordered too late in the day, but the person on the phone helped me out and suggested two supreme subs. I got an Italian and a chicken parm. I had to carry them like a baby when I was on my way out. They did offer to help me carry them to my car. I took them to a party on Sunday to watch the Pats and the Sox games. Everyone loved them. I would go back to try the catering.

Monster portions sandwiches at reasonable prices. Try the steak tip sub, huge for $7, enough to fill 2.The place tends to get very busy and there is only on street parking, which can be a challenge. Everything is fresh and delicious. The Sicilian style pizza is also delicious and comes in many varieties. Recently featured on Phantom Gourmet.
5 stars but for the parking.

PROS: Terrific Italian specilties and huge sandwiches.
CONS: no parking

I can't say enough good things about Bob's. A steady client for years, I always look to Bob's for Italian cold cuts, cheeses, and other antipasti. They also make sandwiches and subs, pizza, pasta, and other Italian dishes for takeaway.

Bob's has the best steak and cheese! Parking isn't that great, but once you find a place its worth the wait. Call in your order ahead of time, or take your time to browse around. Homemade pasta, and raviolis stuffed with various meats,
