Not too bad for a quick bite. The sauce on the pizza is a little sweet for me and the grinders are ok. They most certainly could use more meat on their grinders but it's ok for an average grinder. Basically, you get what you pay for here. They do have fresh vegetables on their pizza unlike some pizza places...

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... 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
