Wellesley’s Linden Store cracks top sandwich shop list

Linden StoreThe Linden Store and its hot BBQ roast beef with American cheese sandwich has made Thrillist’s mouth-watering list of the 21 best sandwich shops in America.

Thrillist, a list-happy website for men (“Everything worth caring about in food, drink, and travel”), also cites shops in Dallas, Nashville and San Francisco, among others. Regarding the Linden Square deli in Wellesley, it says:

“If you grew up in a Western suburb of Boston, the name ‘Linden’ rings out. As in, ‘I’m getting a Linden,’ and ‘You want to go to Linden?,’ and “Who just ate my Linden, because now I have to kill them?’ Open since 1933 and owned by the LeBrun brothers — Greg and Mark — the vibe is old-school town deli: stools, communal tables, and a line that often snakes close to the front door during lunch hours. All of the sandwiches are good (try the Hot Italian or the Ryan, and add extra “hots”), but on Wednesdays, they do a hot sub special that usually sells out by noon featuring slow-simmered BBQ roast beef and onions with melty American cheese that will change your life, or at least the notch you use on your belt.”
