Located off the main drag (Rte. 75) is the 2nd Poquonock Giant Grinder. This place is NOT fancy. But, it is ALWAYS busy! Lots of locals get their lunch "to go" from here. As the name indicates, the grinders are HUGE! I can only eat...More

Nice and convenient to area hotels. Grinders are nicely sized but the sausage one I had would have been better lightly toasted. Tomato sauce needs more spices. I’ll be back...but will work on the order a bit...

Ordered a Turkey Grinder and my husband got the fried chicken with JoJos (fried potato wedges). You can pull off the meat from the grinder and make a second sandwich out of it. The Pizza is good too, different style than most places
