I used to love love love this place. Grew up on it. But in the past few years their product has gone to crap. Usually get Tuna. But lately they're super slim on the tuna, as in half the bread doesn't have any tuna! So today I got the Grum. Usually a really great sandwich. Except today they gave me... More

I've been going to Grum's on and off for over 25 years with many years that pass between visits. I must say it's as good as it has ever been. Grum's is an excellent example of what a really great quality sub should be. The bread is fresh, the meats and cheeses are plentiful and the combination of flavors are... More

An institution on Coventry, Grums had the best subs period. I have always been partial to the Turkey Ridge. All their subs could be spilt between two.

We have been going to Grum's for untold years! It is the best subs on the planet and whenever we go downtown we stop at Grum's on the way home to pick up a couple subs, even if we dont plan to eat them that day. The Grum is our favorite and what we usually get. We have also tried... More

It's all about the bread! You can tell they still get their Italian bread from Little Italy just down the road. You can smell the freshness and it sets off the whole sandwich. Nice and meaty, very substantial. The classic Grum will always be my go to.

This is an original sub place and has been there since 1976? It isn't a fancy place, and the service is average but the Orlando bread is really fresh and the sub meat is better than average. Compared to the new sub places (jimmy john's) there is double the meat. The Turkey Ridge is great too.

I order the hamshire and I asked for no peppers and instead of mustard I asked for mayo. I get my sub and the bread feels soggy , way too much mayo to the point where I couldn't even eat it , there was peppers when i asked for none, also no cheese and terrible service. The hamshire is suppose... More

Typical sub shop with some tasty hot subs to go with the usual cold ones. The hot grumsteer (roast beef with a tangy horseradish sauce) is what keeps me coming back.
