East Coast Grinders has an unusual sign confluence behind the order counter: "Welcome Everyone" and "We have the right to refuse service to anyone." Given the shortage of space in the establishment, they may have to refuse service to more people than they would like. The sandwich preparation area takes up most of the front of the store. In front of it is a small area with a few four-person tables, and there's a narrow strip of two-person tables along the east wall. A half-wall separates those tables from an aisle from the order counter to the pickup counter. This aisle seems like wasted space they can ill afford, since no one ever used the pickup counter: the sandwiches were brought out to us. The menu board doesn't include a Reuben, or list thousand island amongst the available salad dressings, or mention sauerkraut anywhere, but they took orders for Reubens anyway: I guess they based it on their "Casino" sub, which is listed as corned beef and swiss. I had a half-sandwich combo, which included a choice of chips or potato salad as well as a drink. The potato salad was decent, and in good quantity. The only low-calorie fountain beverage is Diet Pepsi, and I discovered that the recent can of the stuff that I had thought wasn't completely awful must have been an anomaly. The sandwich was brought out with an excellent pickle spear. The bread was soft and tasty, but I had to agree with Matthew: for some reason it just didn't taste right with the other ingredients, much more noticeably than other Reuben subs I've had previously. The dressing was strange and overly sweet. The kraut was pretty good, even though I had several bites from one end before I found it. The meat was bland, but there was no shortage of it; likewise with the cheese. On the whole it was a disappointing experience.
