Subway is headquartered in Connecticut. When people go into a Subway there, do they ask for a 6 or 12 grinder?
Years ago I used to like a New England chain called Papa Gino s, which was headquartered in Massachusetts. One time I went into one in Connecticut and asked for steak and cheese sub. They looked at me funny and said you want a what? Their menu on the wall said sub and I was tempted to point to it and show that their menu said sub. But I decided not to mess around with someone who was about to fix my food, so I just said a grinder. [;)]
Looking at the Roadfood database for subs/grinders in Massachusetts and Connecticut, I see that they are barely mentioned. This is surprising since they are so popular locally. I know that most subs/grinders are bought in pizza joints there, but I would think that the Roadfood database would list some of the best places for subs/grinders in New England. Is this an oversight?
