Back in my college days, more than 50 years ago, grinders were a staple for those of us on a tight budget. I still enjoy a hearty sandwich once in awhile, but I'm a little less enamored of a meal on a roll consisting of generic meat, shredded lettuce, industrial cheese and a liberal dose of mayo. The Richard's people... More

I'm not quite sure why this place is such a big deal. They can't toast a sub and they heat things up in the microwave. There isn't really any ambiance. It's just a nondescript sub shop. I mean, it's fine, but it's pretty average.

We were in for an event at the Eastern Exposition Center. Having been raised in New England and having eaten authentic grinders for decades I wanted to try this place because of its ratings. This food was not bona fide nor better than just average. Grinders can be memorable overstuffed with meats, vegetables and cheeses but these fell short --... More

Visited this spot for lunch and came away really impressed! The steak and cheese I ordered was fantastic! It was prepared to order and came out just perfect, nice and hot! The service was good and the food came out quickly! Pricing was reasonable and I would highly recommend this spot for lunch!

A long time staple of grinder greatness. The fresh bread is what makes the difference. We prefer the foot-long cold cut above all the other popular menu options. Nothing fancy, just tasty subs at an affordable price. Lunch combo deals are really a good buy and the service is quick. Some staffers have been working here for many years. If... More

The best grinders around. I have been a customer of Richards for over 30 years and enjoy their grinders the best. The prices are good and the employees are very nice. They offer meals as well as grinders. All the food is very good. I would highly recommend them. They also have a catering service.

They have some grinders there that are so big it can feed you for 4 days. The price is reasonable- it's next to where I got my car fixed at Mechanix behind Sherwin Williams paint. So while waiting I would stop in at Richards or Debbie Wongs both are so excellent Richards seems like the freshest grinder rolls I have... More

I've heard and reviewed allot of comments about Richard's Grinders. Playing Golf on a Tuesday and driving past their location made me try them out. I looked at their menu and figured it would be a great choice even reading the reviews. Boy, was I wrong. I ordered a Basic Cold Cut Grinder from the Golf Course in Agawam knowing... More
