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

  1. 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.

    2. 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.
