Been here several times and sampled many of their products. All of the sandwiches have been better than average and the service is always with a smile.

We were on our way to the High Street Deli when we spotted this place. I had the spicy pastrami special, on sourdough roll, which is probably a lot like their regular pastrami, only with brown mustard and pepper jack cheese and, well, a little...More

Owned by a gentleman from Connecticut, the Giant Grinder is the real deal. They know what a grinder is and they know how to make it. Be sure to ask them to do it well toasted so the sausage and meatballs get hot!! I try...More

I eat at the Giant Grinder at least once a week, maybe twice. My favorites are the spicey pastrami, turkey pesto and the norcal combo, delish! Always friendly service and great prices. I'm ordering a NorCal combo now, yummy!!!

The East Coast Grinder is awesome and so is the half meatball/half sausage. I find myself going here all the time for lunch. They do not skimp on size or quality. I usually eat half the sandwich for lunch and the other half for dinner,...More
