Now I’m wondering if there are any grinder places where the chicken cutlets, shaved steak, etc. are cooked on the spot. I know that means slower service, and I haven’t had any problem at all with how things are normally done, but I’m just curious. The idea of a chicken cutlet grinder being cooked-to-order is tantalizing.
While I would not consider them as “grinder” places (for me, a grinder must be made on a crusty roll, suitable for oven baking), both Charley’s and D’Angelos cook their shaved steak and chicken to order. Both are decent (far superior to classic sub chains), but not really of classic “grinder” quality.
