I left Hartford in 1981, and whenever someone now tells me that they've just eaten at the best sandwich place, I tell them they haven't, unless they are talking about the Franklin Grinder shop. From when I was driving an ambulance in Hartford to when I was a VP at a local bank, whenever I was hungry, I headed to the Franklin Grinder Shop. I now live in one of the food capitals in the U.S. (San Francisco) and I too have found nothing that compares. So glad it is still there (over 50 years I believe)!
Simply The Best – I moved away from Hartford a long time ago and any trip back home is never complete without a stop here. I've had many grinders in my life, none compare. I agree with another reviewer, this would be a great place for the TV show. Can't wait until my next visit or maybe, i'll have them Fedex me one, Hummm.
Should Be On The Travel Channel Diner,Drive In's And Dives!! – Franklin Giant Grinders is one of the best grinders I have ever had. OMG it was overstuffed with so much meat it was not even funny. I have had over stuffed grinders befor that just tasted BLAH but the meat was excellent and very tasty. The size was ...indescribable. I had to call them just to say WOW and thank you. In this economy you cannot find places like this that do not down size their menu. I ordered a half grinder and it was a footlong SUPER STUFFED WITH MEAT AND THE CHEESE WAS SO THICK OMG!!! How is this grinder spot not on the travel channels Diners,Drive in's and Dives??? Food was extremely fresh and exquisitely prepared. This is my new Grinder home LOL!!!
FRANKLIN GIANT GRINDER SHOP – I GREW UP IN HARTFORD BUT HAVE BEEN GONE FOR FOURTY YEARS. I HAVE NEVER VISITED FRIENDS AND RELATIVES IN THE AREA WITHOUT A STOP AT FRANKLIN GIANT. THE BEST BREAD, SAUCE AND THE BEST INGREDIENTS. I'VE LOOKED ALL OVER THE STATES FOR A BETTER GRINDER AND NEVER FOUND ONE TO COMPARE.
