A classic grinder/hoagie/whatever you want to call them is not really a thing in Seattle, so life gets pretty tough when what you need most is a sub with a bag of potato chips. But Royal Grinders is doing its part to fill that void - some of the greatest sandwiches in the city are coming from their small counter joint. Their Italian is especially insane: the bread is crispy on the outside but thick and soft on the inside, and topped with pepperoni, salami, smoked ham, provolone, swiss, chopped pepperoncinis, and a really good ranch spread that we wished they sold by the bottle. Or kilo. Your sandwich will be huge no matter what, so split it with a friend. Or don’t.
