Surprisingly tasty and filling

The restaurant is in a small plaza and it didn't look like much. But the food was better than I thought. I got a half a grinder and it was FILLING. It was a good type of filling where I was full and it left a good taste in my mouth. I didn't even know what a grinder was before... read more

We went there looking for good meal options. At the first day, we had the giant grinder... awesome! Then, a couple days later, we ordered party pizzas to go (pepperoni & mushrooms (2 ea), ham & pineapple, plain cheese, and onions and peppers) for 25 people. Everyone liked it... Everyone! One of the best pizzas we've ever had!

My husband has been visiting Second Poquonock Giant Grinder for 40 years, and he said that it has always been amazing. I had been here before as well, and I can attest to the fabulous pizza served here. My husband always goes for the grinders, which are indeed giant. This is a little hole in the wall in a strip...

The space isn't huge, but the food served is mighty good. Not having a kitchen this week has allowed us to experience some great local foods. When we came in we saw the tables with grinders, they looked gigantic! We ordered a large pizza with sausage, mushrooms and onions and were told if we added one more item (garlic!) we'd... More

My wife and I traveled to Hartford, CT for a family wedding and stayed at one of the airport hotels for the night. Although there were many franchise restaurants down the streets, we decided to be adventurous and try this grinder place that was within walking distance. As we approached the small strip mall, I had some reservations. The place... More

I tried Second Poquonock because it's right down the street from my house. I will admit that when I first walked in to this hole-in-the-wall I did think twice, but my gut told me that these are the types of places where you stumble upon the best food, and I'm glad I listened! Biggest and best pizza grinder I have... More

H & M is an awesome family restaurant. They now have a brand new building (right next to where the old one was). Best pizza anywhere around! And the family that owns it are great! Great prices too!
