Typical deli but very good food

Had the homemade wheat bread grilled cheese and tomato and it was very good. The crab salad sandwich was also good, tho nothing special. The staff impressed me in that they donate ALL of their tip money to local charity, raising on average about 10k/year for Relay for Life and The Humane Society... read more

Simply the best. We never miss a chance to stop by Gill's (most times more than once) when we're visiting Rutland. Whether eat in or to go, it's perfect. Great for a road trip or pre-ordering for a picnic. Add the oil to the bread (they'll ask you that as soon as you order)....you won't be disappointed. And don't forget... More

Always awesome! Always a treat! Absolutely love the Italian hot grinders! Great for catering or for take home dinners! No one goes hungry when Gills is served!

Gill's is always busy, which says a lot right there. The "Hot Meats" can't be beat! The bread holds up if you're traveling somewhere and for leftovers. To provide an example of how much we love our Gill's, one time while there, a woman from NYC and I struck up a conversation. She drove her husband's Maserati here just for... More

Excellent hero/sub/hoagie sandwiches, or whatever you call them around here. The bread is tasty, the meat portions generous, and I really liked the raw cabbage. I will be back!

We went to Gill's on the recommendation of a local. The grinders were fairly priced. The bread was homemade, it was very tasty but width of the bread was a little too narrow. They were generous with the meat in the sandwich, which is allways a plus. Overall the grinders we bought very good. We would definitely eat there again.

Best subs anywhere in Rutland for a million years. I think it's not only the fresh cabbage but also the most delicious fresh bread. Line frequently looks long but they're good so it moves quickly. Nice friendly staff makes it a pleasure to visit.

I have been getting Gill's grinders since I was a little girl. So the love for the grinders have passed from one generation to another!. Fresh ingredients, made to order. I recommend calling in your order; you'll love it when you can walk past the line to pick up your grinders while the others wait! Keep in mind they only... More

When recently spending some time in Rutland, Vermont Gill's was recommended as a place to have lunch. Upon arrival I was surprised by the crowd within. Fortunately these people know how to serve a large group and so the line moved along rather fast. My friend and I each purchased a large (3rd largest of the 4 sizes offered) Hot... More
