AAA Inspector Notes
Classic. More than 4,000 Italian grinders are sold each week at this popular eatery. Soft loaves of bread are topped with imported Italian pruzitini ham, capicola, salami, provolone cheese, mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, olives, hot sauce and a classic mix featuring a secret blend of onions, cucumbers and green peppers. Other grinders include chicken parmigiana, sausage and peppers and a turkey club. Glass counters showcase deli meats, platters of homemade salads and antipasti, as well as some pre-cooked dinners. Guests wait in line to order, then choose their own table to sit and eat. Walls are covered with awards they have won as well as some other imported Italian items for sale. If you leave the counter staff a tip they will graciously recognize it by ringing a bell and saying grazie—a tradition since opening in 1922.
