A hole in the wall take out place that only takes cash but don't let that fool you. If you know what makes a good grinder it starts with the bread and that's the case here. Fresh and crispy, loaded with fresh cut meat, provolone, lettuce and tomato in the true SE CT grinder tradition. The small is enough for... More

I stopped by Pasta Fresca for the first time since the ownership changed, the new owner seemed very friendly and helpful, if only the product had stayed the same as the previous owner served. I ordered a Roast Beef and found that although it was good, the quantity of meat seemed to be about 30% less, the bulk of the... More

Everyone in Mystic knows about this deli. Grinder rolls are perfect, god meat and cheese that is cut right, along with the right stuff. They have daily specials that are so good that they sometimes sell out before Noon. Eggplant Parmesan and meatball are favorites, but I ask for a little extra sauce even if its messy. The Portuguese kale... More

Their small subs have more meat than a party platter from subway. I've been getting grinders for years and have never been disappointed. Unless they were closed, only open for lunch.

Excellent sandwiches. Might suggest however avoiding the chicken parm grinder. Very dry. Maybe this was just a fluke as everything else was first rate.

In a little place on a side street in downtown area of lovely Mystic, CT you can find a very large delicious grinder on a crusty roll at a very fair price. Nice staff,great service with a smile. Try it- you'll like it!

Definitely very big sandwiches, the small is enough for two people to share. Chicken salad was ok, a bit bland, our other grinders were very good. Not the friendliest people, I made the mistake of calling the sandwich a hero, "they don't have heroes, only grinders" Would go back again.

Best grinders in Mystic without a doubt. The sandwiches are fresh and a small grinder is so big you will have some left over for a snack. The girl behind the counter is an absolute miserable person but who cares. She has the personality of the wicked witch of the West. i I don't have to live with her so... More
