We were back in town for a visit, and one of our stops was Grinders for a meatball sandwich. Did not disappoint !!!

I love the meatball sandwich. My oldest daughter loves the Grinder. My youngest loves the spaghetti and bread! I have never had a bad meal at any of the locations.

My husband had a sandwich which was big and tasty. I had a daily special pasta that was also good that came with a salad and bread. It had a little too much sauce for my taste, but was very filling.

Great way to feed a family. Good food and a lot of it for the price. We always order the meal then have the sandwich for lunch the next day. The cinnamon bread is the favorite of the children. Great value, great flavor.

If you are feeding a family, this is the place for you. The sauces are delicious but the real star in the bread. Plain, Garlic or Cinnamon - how do you choose? I get all three!

Garlic bread was tasty with a bit of sweetness, but we had spaghetti and seafood ravioli, both of which were incredibly bland.

I have lived in Davenport (this time) for 12 years & I have passed Grinder's no less than a zillion times. And Father's Day was the first time I had ever eaten their food--and I'm sad it took me so long! My family gets together every month to celebrate holidays & events with my father-in-law (he's in a nursing home)... More

You can not feed a better meal to your family or business for less. Too bad the eat in facilities are so wanting and they do not offer real plates or silverware.

I have been buying the family pack for sometime - never been disappointed and enough for a family of 4 - the sandwich is very tasty, and I don't generally eat deli sandwiches like that...I have always enjoyed the alfredo noodles!

Their claim to fame is their homemade bread --- and it's delicious. My kids in KC always make a point of taking sandwiches back because there's nothing like it there. Their daily lunch specials are very inexpensive and completely filling. Try the pizza bread or the gondola and fall in love with the bread.
