Royal Grinders Seattle – True sandwich royalty

"Royal Grinders" in Seattle makes some amazing sandwiches. They're huge and come for cheap for such a hearty meal. Check out their beer 'display case'!

I’m salivating as I write this article just thinking about a sandwich from Royal Grinders. This small shop located in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle, right by The Statue of Lenin (check out the article!) is where I take anyone visiting from out of town for lunch.

Each sandwich on the menu runs for about $11 after tax, cheap for a hearty Seattle-meal. My personal favorite is the Italian Grinder. It comes on freshly toasted french bread, perfectly seasoned, with thick pieces of ham, salami and pepperoni, plus cheese, veggies and a house-made zesty grinder sauce.

Good things come to those who wait. Each sandwich takes about 10-15 minutes to prepare, but you won’t be disappointed with the warm behemoth you receive. I also advise taking it to go unless you visit during the summertime. The majority of their seating is outdoors.

One of my favorite quirks about Royal Grinders: they used to serve gelato, and thus have a large ice cream display case. A little while ago though they fazed out the dessert, and now serve local craft beer & cider, elegantly displayed by color in the case!
