Their garbage grinders are great! First time there and staff recommended the ultimate...was super good. Rated it a 4 only because of it's location right on a busy street corner and parking is a little tricky. Will recommend this place and if back in town...More

They have limited seating for those who want to stay and eat. I always order to go. It's about 9.75 for a large sandwich that two people could split.

They have the best sandwiches in the valley. With the melted cheese and crisp meats it is a little greasy but so so good.

Pretty basic sandwich shop. Large portions and lots of meat and cheese. Nice place with horrible parking.

I like the Grinder here. They give you a nice selection to choose from and it is all fresh. The staff are really nice and the food is just wonderful.

Currently on a vegetarian diet and the veggie grinder is scrumptious. People are great and your fresh order is made when you order. Small place but order in or carry out its the best.

My favorite sandwich place in the USA. Tiny building but worth it's weight in gold. Right across the street from the mall.

This is the best sandwich shop in southern Oregon. Fifty years ago this place was thee place to go in Medford. Still is in my opinion. While Subway is usually fairly good it does not have the hiastory or Character that Luigis has. This place...More

Since 1969, Luigi's has been known for it's signature sandwich - the "Garbage Grinder". Fresh baked bread, salami, ham, pepperoni, secret sauce and 2 cheeses are melted in the oven and then covered with fresh pickles, bell peppers, tomatoes, onions & olive oil ez salt. I added free pepperocini's. Arguably, the best grinder in Southern Oregon. If you're cruising North or South on I5, near Medford, I highly recommend trying the "Garbage Grinder" at Luigi's. Be prepared to take it with you as this tiny Italian sandwich joint gets packed. Super friendly staff and service.
