Excellent sandwiches. Might suggest however avoiding the chicken parm grinder. Very dry. Maybe this was just a fluke as everything else was first rate.

In a little place on a side street in downtown area of lovely Mystic, CT you can find a very large delicious grinder on a crusty roll at a very fair price. Nice staff,great service with a smile. Try it- you'll like it!

To enjoy one of the best grinders around, this place is not to be missed. Great value for great food. A favorite lunch spot for all the locals

Definitely very big sandwiches, the small is enough for two people to share. Chicken salad was ok, a bit bland, our other grinders were very good. Not the friendliest people, I made the mistake of calling the sandwich a hero, "they don't have heroes, only grinders" Would go back again.

Best grinders in Mystic without a doubt. The sandwiches are fresh and a small grinder is so big you will have some left over for a snack. The girl behind the counter is an absolute miserable person but who cares. She has the personality of the wicked witch of the West. i I don't have to live with her so... More

With kids and a day on the boat, it's Grinders from Pasta Fresca. We love the eggplant grinder and the meatball grinders. Their bread is hearty and fresh.

This place is take-out only but what you're taking out is the best grinder you'll ever have. They deli slice the meat for your order and the bread is delicious! And be prepared because a small is huge. Once they run out of fresh bread, they close up shop.

I've been in search of the #1 grinder here for many years. I have many categories for grinders and this coldcut is great tasting and a great value as well, making it the best SO FAR in the cold cut served cold category. For about $9-10 you get enough to feed 4 people lunch as long as they are not... More

Their sandwiches are first rate, both the hot ones and the cold. Some are a bit spicy. Have had their sandwiches on every visit to the area and the quality has not wavered.
