The name pretty much gives it away here: this south-suburban spot is all about the grinder, a submarine-style sandwich sold to shipyard workers on the east coast during World War II. On the menu, find 15 different gourmet sandwiches, which you can tweak to your tastebuds' delight. Regulars snatch up the honey-mustard chicken sandwich -- made with an herb-baked chicken breast -- and the pulled pork sandwich, smothered with provolone cheese and Sweet Baby Ray's barbecue sauce. In addition to the stop-in-for-lunch crowd, T.J.'s boxes up lunches en masse, catering-style, for business meetings and corporate events.
