Twin Cities: Subs, Grinders, Hoagies

I am looking for a really good sub sandwich. If you know Cleveland, think Grumm's. If you know Western New York, think Hoagie Brothers. Not Jimmy John's or Subway....thanks

    Gentle nudge: By using examples of faraway places and not describing exactly what it is you consider great, you're pretty much eliminating 99.999% of recommendations you might get.

    Example: I had an outstanding meatball sub from Brianno's last night. Fantastic sauce, giant, flavorful meatballs, gooey provolone, and crunchy/chewy bread. IF you like that kind of sandwich, it's worth driving across town for. I also love their Italian Beef and cold cut sub (Brianno's Special). But I have no idea if that's even close to what you're interested in.

      Have you been following Teddy Hobbs' Epic Sandwich in the City Pages? Good resource for sandwich-seekers.

        Those are all sandwiches, and not subs. Buon Giorno, close to Region's Hospital in St Paul makes some pretty good subs.

          Second Buon Giorno Express. It's the only place that I have found a chicken parmesan grinder like I used to get in Connecticut. Not called a grinder or even a sub, I don't think.
