The kids and adults in my family love this place – What a treat! I bring all of my out of town guests here. Friendly staff, predictable, affordable. Go soon!
great sandwiches – This is the best place for sandwiches! You cannot go here without getting the HOT SALAMI!!! And it's a great value!
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Popular U-District haunt that serves generously sized, inexpensive sandwiches--from meatball heroes to hot roast beef.
THE ABSOLUTE BEST – The best darn lunch spot in all of Seattle area. I can not say enough good things about this place, I have been a loyal customer of theirs for YEARS. Terry and Angel the owners are good good people and their food is fantastic! I highly reccommend the hot pastrami with a side of tomato bisque btw. If you haven't eaten lunch at "the grinder" you haven't eaten lunch!! LONG LIVE THE BROOKLYN GRINDER!!!
I love this Place!! – Best meatball and roast beef and gravy ever!!! Great value and the people there are soooo nice. I highly recommend this place. Beware, this isn't fast food or subway, sometimes it takes a while to get your food. If you're tight on time, call ahead, if not, sit down, relax, and wait for your great grinder!!
Favorite Seattle Spot – Definitely one of my top spots in Seattle for food. I'm so thrilled that they changed locations right next to my apartment building! I'll definitely have to try one of their breakfast sandwiches one more before I head out for work.
My all time favorite sandwich has to be the cajun turkey, but I still haven't tried them all!
The employees are all killer. This is exactly the type of friendly folks you expect to meet in Seattle.
I haven't met Angel (one of the owners), but Terry is awesome. You should stop next door at the Galway arms and buy him a beer after he makes you one of his killer sandwiches!
I Love This Place! – Everytime I've been there, the owner has been there, smiling and friendly! The sandwiches are EXCELLENT... I haven't been disappointed once. If you want a great place for a sandwich, this is the place to go!
Best sandwich I've ever eaten. – It's hard to wax rhapsodic about a sandwich. But if there's a single human being who can make you do it, it's Terry at the Brooklyn Grinder.
There are 99% of restaurants, and then there are those few places you never forget because you can't believe how good this thing is you've put in your mouth.
Some things on my list:
1)Sea mussels cooked in wine and creme fraiche, on the Normandy coast
2)Confit de Canard and pate served by a dizzyingly beautiful woman in a tiny restaurant in the Perigord
3)My first Reuben sandwitch at the Brooklyn Grinder in Seattle.
If #3 looks out of place you haven't had one of Terry's sandwiches. That may sond a little corny, but it's no less sincere.
[If it were me I'd try the Reuben or the Italian...]
northwest style sandwiches – Super sandwiches, the people are exceptionally nice and friendly, and like I said "those sandwiches" are yummy, all of them. Absolutely recommended.
Andy & Dollie – As a transplanted east coaster, I say WOW! My senses are home sick. The owner is personable and energetic, the aromas spread up and down the street, and the food... fagettaboudit!
We threw a going away office party for a coworker last week. I drove from Olympia to Seattle and back for a large (office sized) order of all things Brookland Grinder, almost everyone in my office asked me for directions.
I've tried to describe the New York deli experience to my NW friends for years, now I can show them first hand.
Thank you Grinder!
