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 revi...

Worst

Went here b/c my wife loved it a hundred years ago. Better as a memory. Now just dirty and not very good food.

Editorial review from Citysearch 1/8/2015

i grew up on Franklin Giant Grinders and sadly to say the place has really gone downhill. I placed an order for pickup on New Years Eve at 2:00pm. I had called and found out they were closing at 4:30pm so I scheduled my order for pick up at 4:00pm . The woman on the phone was rude and when I got there my order wasn't ready and I asked why and she told me can't you see i am busy taken care of other customers? They were fighting and yelling amongst themselves and they did not have enough help for the amount of business in the store. Although the grinders are very tasty the whole other situation and disrespect left a bad taste in my mouth and i will never go back again. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 11/15/2012

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)! more

Simply The Best 2/17/2011

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. more

Should Be On The Travel Channel Diner,Drive In's And Dives!! 10/2/2009

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!!! Pros: Best Grinder In The Northeast......... Cons: None more

How Hungry Are You? 10/17/2008

If you come to Franklin Giant Grinder Shop in Hartford, be very hungry and do muscle exercises so your mouth will wrap around these meat filled grinders. You may wait a while but it is worth the wait. There are no grinders like them anywhere. more

Very good pizza and grinders 6/16/2008

Franklin Giant Grinder offers very good pizza, italian food, and grinders in the South End of Hartford. The staff is friendly, the service is fast, and the restaurant is clean. The antipasto salad and the meatball grinders are very good and highly recommended. more

FRANKLIN GIANT GRINDER SHOP 1/16/2007

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. Pros: THE BEST GRINDERS IN THE WORLD Cons: THE NEIGHBOORHOOD HAS GONE TO HELL. more
