Always delicious! Give your self some extra time or call ahead for sandwich orders, and remember to have cash or check on you because they don't' take cards. Personally we like to stop in after lunch for a bar or cake.

Great sandwiches in a nice environment are most of the recipe that makes this a terrific lunch spot. The desserts push it over the top! They don't take plastic, and the sandwiches are made one at a time. Well worth the wait.

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...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,...More
