Bellacino's History

The term "Grinder" can be traced back to the East Coast where during World War I, Italian immigrants set up sandwich shops close to the shipyards. Their freshly backed Italian rolls where filled with generous amounts of meats & cheeses and where then baked and garnished with lettuce and tomato. These super-sized sandwiches were a favorite of the hard-working men who ground off rivets on the metal warships. The friendly shop owners referred to these men as grinders, and the ever-popular sandwiches also came to be known as grinders.

We at Bellacino's pledge our guarantee to provide generous portions, superior quality, and fast & friendly service. Short on time does not have to mean short on variety or flavor, but just the right blend of convienance and satisfaction. We will never compromise our quality for gimmick or profit.
