We finally stopped at Grinders for take-out sandwiches yesterday. I ploughed through the sausage grinder and my wife enjoyed the "SauBall" half meatball and half sausage. Both came with a cup of tasty marinara on the side for dipping. I was hoping to show some restraint and only eat half of my grinder, but my sandwich was way too tasty... More

We went for an early dinner on a Monday night. Our server was very cordial and provided attentive service throughout our meal including pacing the soup and main meal. The soup of the day was Italian Wedding, which was very good. For dinner, my wife ordered the cavatappi pasta with marinara sauce. For a small additional charge, she added mushrooms... More

Service is beautiful. Ambiance is perfectly cozy and elegant. The sandwiches are mind blowing - the best French Dip I've had. They've a roasted vegetable sandwich that brings you to tears with joy. I suggest you share a sandwich - portions are humongous. I've been there a few times and I've always left happy!

I came in on a rainy Saturday thinking of having a meatball grinder, but I let myself be persuaded to have The Tuscan, a delicious hot roasted pork,... More

Our son recommended this restaurant for a evening meal when we visited him in Bothell. He had eaten there several times and was confident we would enjoy it too. As imagined, the menu is not extensive, but there are about 15 different sandwiches on the menu. He advised us to split an order, unless we were starved, so we of... More

Maybe I just got a bad-luck sandwich. I've read so many good reviews, but I just didn't see it. The grinders were a good size, so it's good bang for your buck. We got ours to-go, so they sat for about 15 minutes before I ate it. I bit into several pieces of hard chicken and the bread was a... More

This is the first place we stopped when we got to Shoreline. The sandwiches are absolutely great- maybe a bit on the large side but the leftovers made a nice lunch! I'm

I recently started thinking about Grinders Hot Sands since I visited the restaurant this time last year and I remembered how amazing the food was...I ordered the Ciabatta and my boyfriend had the Stromboli...sooooo yummy!! If you love sandwiches or even if you don't you must try this place. The food was so incredibly tasty!!!

Staff; All Foodies! Atmosphere; Cool and relaxed and comfortable! Food; AMAZING!! Very reasonable as you get your lunch/dinner and still have leftovers. Knowledgeable staff guide you through what is current for the days specials, all of which sounded amazing. I had the pasta with choice of any sauce and accouterments. And sitting here, fully sated and have some for tomorrow!... More
