We love a good roast beef sandwich, whether it’s topped with horseradish or doused in barbecue sauce. And we’ll soon have more options on where to get the classic lunch item with news of a popular local chain’s expansion.

Kelly’s Roast Beef, which currently operates four Massachusetts locations in Revere Beach, Saugus, Medford, and Danvers, along with spots in New Hampshire and Florida, will be opening its seventh full-sized location in Dedham. The eatery has started construction and will be open by “late summer,” according to the chain’s Instagram post.

There are many excellent places to get roast beef sandwiches in Boston and beyond. Cusser’s at Time Out Market, makes theirs with Wagyu beef and served with mayo, cheese, and housemade sauce. At Cutty’s in Brookline, the sandwich comes with Thousand Island dressing and crispy shallots. North Shore restaurants like Nick’s Roast Beef and Bill and Bob’s Roast Beef, especially the Salem location by the water, are famous for their roast beef. In 2017, readers named Harrison’s Roast Beef in North Andover as the very best place to get the sandwich, also giving a nod to others, like Angelo’s Famous Roast Beef in Plymouth.
