Grilled sandwiches at D'Angelo

D'Angelo's brand as printed on my sandwich wrapping 
D’Angelo is a New England fast food chain. The first opened its doors as Ma Riva's Sub Shop on March 1, 1967, in Dedham, Massachusetts. The philosophy was to "put the best quality meats, cheeses and toppings in the freshest breads and serve it friendly and fast." It serves sandwiches, salads, wraps made to order. I grabbed a sandwich at its shop at Boston Bus Terminal. It was cheap, but that was it!

Rating D'Angelo: BBB- (2,86 points)

Boston Bus Terminal
D'Angelo's has shops scattered over New England. One is located in Boston Bus terminal.

Bus terminals are in general not the most charming places to dine, rather the opposite. Boston Bus Terminal has a brilliant location, in downtown, but it is primarily a place to gather. D'Angelo here consists of a counter and a few tables in a bare room.

Service offered in a fast food chain is not much to talk of. You order, wait, and are served by the counter - politely, but with no smile.

Then you get you wrapped sandwich and sit down on a hard bench to eat before you go.

I ordered a Grilled steak and Vermont cheddar cheese - a toasted classic. It was inexpensive, but hardly what you could call delicious. Melted cheese, that sticked to the wrapping, very little taste neither from cheese nor grilled steak. 

The Grilled steak and Vermont cheddar cheese toasted sandwich was stomach providing carbohydrates, fat, and proteins on your way to your destination, without tickling your taste buds. If you accept that deal, buy your D'Angelo sandwich. If not, try the food court at the adjoining South Station. Here you may get better deals, with better taste.
