We make a point of making the 1 hour, plus, trip over to Rutland several times a year just to get a Gill's grinder. They have been making great grinders for the 40 years I have been going there, and I just hope they continue for another 40 years. You can take out or eat there. It is a little... More

We ate here a couple of times. They are quick and efficient. Long lines move fast. Breads toasted, most meats are standard deli. Size range from mini to extra large. We found splitting large was sufficient. They say that they are Italian and also offer pasta. Caution: they are cash only so any card check or iPhone payments are not... More

We eat here fairly often, and we've noticed in the last little while that they aren't putting as much in the subs as they used to be. Seems like more bread than ingredients. And prices have gone up? A mini-sized grinder with turkey and cheese was over $6. That seems a bit crazy.

Ya,ya...it is always crowded, you have to wait in line, they don't take checks nor credit cards HOWEVER the very best grinder/sub/hoagie to be had in the state maybe New England. The hot meat sub is addictive. You can call your order in but watching them hand craft your sandwich is part of the magic.

I know . I'm from nj shore - I'm used to a good sub . But my husband turned me into a gils regular. Like once a week ! I always get the tuna - never fishy and always consistent . The cabbage is crunchy and adds exemplary texture. I add banana peppers and oil vinegar mixture- umm. Husband gets... More

I grew up going to Gills, as a child I remember looking through the glass at the cold cuts display tables. I haven been there in at least 25 years until I stopped for pizza a few weeks ago as I was traveling through the area. Nothing changed, still great food and atmosphere.

We lived in Honolulu when I was pregnant with my first child, l craved Gil's desperately and tried every deli I could find, looking for something similar. Their rolls are amazing, no one else uses shredded cabbage, and the staff move the long lines through with calm efficiency.

The meat is below par quality. Not Boarshead for sure. Prices don't justify the quality. Place needs reorganization to flow the customer thru order to purchasing and out the door.

...and the staff was rude to me. I won't go back. If you are in Rutland and want a quality sandwich I suggest either Panereas or the Coffee Exchange. Both are much higher quality and a better value.
