We like to support local establishments when we can. What a great place. Small hole in the wall off the main drag but the sandwiches and desserts are great!

Grinders has amazing sandwiches either on homemade bread or homemade sub buns. Their caramel bars are the best around and the staff who work their are friendly and polite. The hours are 11-3 Monday through Friday.

We looked at TA reviews and selected Grinder's based upon reviews. We ordered a turkey & ham sandwich on bread and a turkey sandwich with double meat and extra cheese on a sub roll. Both had secret sauce on them. My wife liked her sandwich and noted it was just the right size with fresh soft baked light wheat bread... More

Grinder's is a hometown treasure. The homemade bread and sub rolls are so soft and delicious. Sue and Wendy are welcoming faces at Grinder's. My personal favorite is the egg salad. Yumm. The all cold cut Grinder is a family favorite. You can't go wrong with any of the sandwiches or subs. Grinders also has wonderful caramel bars and chocolate... More

Sue and her sandwiches are a staple in Austin, and I try to get one whenever I can, even though the hours are limited (10-3 M-Sat). She bakes her bread fresh every morning and serves each sandwich with a sprinkling of Gardettos on the side, which is a unique touch. It does take a while to make each sandwich, but... More

Grinder's is worth finding. It is located in a quaint little building by St. Augustine's Church. The bread and grinder rolls are homemade and delicious. Sue offers two special sauces and spreads for your sandwich. My favorite sandwich is her egg salad. The Grinder is a sub filled with yummy cold cuts. They also have excellent turkey, roast beef and... More

A coworker and I try to get to Grinder's at least a couple times a month for lunch. The bread is soft and the ingredients are always so fresh. The staff is so friendly and provide excellent service. It's nice to see a local owner running a successful small business.
