Must have been a pound and a half of meat on the sandwich. Cost a bit more but it is worth every cent you pay.

They over fill the grinders, but you get what you pay for. They cost more, but are so worth it. My husband will only eat a meatball grinder from HGG, and no where else. I love the capicola, take out the extra meat for another sandwich later. Unfortunately, they close at 4pm until July, then 6pm. Extended hrs would help,... More

In an area where grinder delis are more prevalent than Starbucks, I can tell you these are the top in the area! They roast their own turkey and roast beef, not relying on basic cold cuts and it shows. Their Thanksgiving grinder is a feast in and of itself, and other grinders just as yummy! There is little seating, plan... More

We go here year round. The grinders are always tasty. They do put a bit too much meat in them, but that is what they are famous for. I just give the extra to someone else. Definitely the best grinders in town. It's a hidden spot, mostly the locals go there.

If you want a great grinder, this is the place! Home made Roast beef is the best you can find. Great bread.

We found this little hole-in-the-wall in Niantic, CT. We were starving and our expectations were pretty low but we found a hidden gem. The place has new owners and they are pulling all the stops to make customers happy. They cook huge hunks of real, fresh turkey and beef right there and the beef is rare and delicious. I don't...

Under new ownership (seems every 12 mo's), but this seems to be the best yet. The sandwiches are solid, great bread and a few in house smoked meats. Would recommend now with the new ownership. Always seemed a bit sketchy in the past :)

A stop at Hartford Giant Grinder accompanies any beach day for our family. Fresh bread, cut-to-order meats, crisp veggies...I couldn't make a fresher grinder at home. We love the Italian layered thick with ham, mortadella, salami, fresh lettuce, tomato and a layer of spicy banana peppers! Keep in mind the sub sizes are massive - have the staff show you... More
