I have been going thru the Sandwich Selections, trying several items often and enjoyed the consistency in this family operated Restaurant with Grandma doing most of the preparation.
"GRINDERS" Hot Sands.
19811 Aurora Avenue North
Shoreline , Wa.
Open 11:00 AM - 8:00 PM Closed Tuesday and Sunday
Just south of the Costco on Aurora Avenue.
My favorites are: (so far]
SauBall Grinder: Combination of Italian Sausage with Meatballs [tender and delicious] on a Italian Roll with Marinara Sauce, Grilled Onions and Melted Mozzarella.
Goomba Grinder: Sicilian Style Grilled Chicken, Kalamata Olives, Garlic Roasted Tomato's, Grilled Onions, Melted Feta and Mozzarella.
Clabatta Grinder: Ciabatta Bread dressed with Garlic, Infused Olive Oil, Oregano, Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto covered with Toscano, Finocchiona, Sopressata, and Fire Roasted Pork Loin.
Po' Boy Grinder: Choice of "Catfish" or "Shrimp", dusted with spicy Creole Seasonings dipped in hot oil to crisp, placed on a roll dressed with Remoulade Sauce covered with a blanket of Coleslaw. I request some Abruzzo Peppers be added.
Gilbano Grinder: Thin Sliced Triangle Tip grilled with Basil, Garlic, Onions, Spicy Abruzzo Peppers, Mozzarella, Gorgonzola loaded into a Italian Roll. A Seattle version of the "Philly Cheese Steak".
There are many others plus daily specials.
Their soups are also very good: Yesterdays was a Italian Traditional, "Tomato Bread Soup" with lots of character, plenty of garlic and some cheese.
For Desert I took home a Giant serving of "Bread Pudding" with Whiskey Sauce and Whipped Cream together with instruction for heating it up in a Microwave. It was enough for three, and very good.
The Sandwiches are all prepared to order, the interior is very comfortable and welcoming. Even though I have only been there about 6 times over several months I am welcomed and treated like a regular customer.
Give it a try and tell us about your meal. It's been doing more business, but I want to see it doing better so we can all enjoy its sandwiches
I wanted to ad three additional Sandwiches that I enjoy regularly in Seattle to my list.
Authentic "Monte Cristo" Sandwich at "Bakers Restaurant & Fountain" in business since 1929 located since it moved from Pikes Market in Lake City at 12534 Lake City Way, Seattle. This comes with very good Fresh Cut French Fries and you can order a eat with a spoon in the Container Milk Shake or Malted as well as Ice Cream Sodas.
They also make a large jumbo "Hamburger" cooked your way with Grilled to Order Onions thats a meal itself with the generous serving of French Fries.
"Paseo Caribbean Restaurant" makes a "Cuban Midnight" Sandwich thats my favorite there with a side order of Black Beans and Rice. I generally request that the only use a smaller amount of dressing as it can overwhelm the sandwich.
My other favorites are the various Vietnamese Sandwiches according to my mood from different places off Jackson, but I never yet had anything but good ones everywhere.
There are 2 very delicious unusual "Chinese Sandwiches" being prepared to order at "Fu Man Dumpling House" at 143rd & Greenwood Avenue.
Pork Hamburger and Beef Hamburgers are served in two round seasoned patties covered and cooked to order in a thin dough covering that bust with flavor and juices when you bite into them.(have napkin handy) Beware they can be addictive.

I don't say that I do. But don't let it get around that I don't.
