Rooted Deep in the heart of Hampton Roads - Locals Favorite


Greater Grinders Submarines, a family owned and operated business, has been serving the Tidewater area since 1976.  Our founder is Martin Saunders who opened the original store on Cromwell Road in Norfolk. The next year a partnership was formed with his Uncle Bob Boyd and they opened the store on Baker Road in Virginia Beach. Our store on High Street in Portsmouth has been in operation since 1985.  Our store on  Azalea Garden Road in Norfolk is opened in 1990. We feel very fortunate to have so many loyal customers who have made it possible for us to continue doing what we love. The focus and goal of the business has always been to give our customers the highest degree of customer satisfaction possible.  We use the freshest ingredients available, make all subs to order, provide friendly and consistent service and treat everyone the way we would like to be treated.
