In an effort to continue to keep everyone safe inside and outside the restaurant, currently we are only doing carry out/curbside service.  We will reopen the dining area once the virus has subsided to a acceptable level. We apologize for inconvenience this may cause.  

The history of Mancino’s Pizza & Grinders

The term "Grinder" dates back to the eastern region of the U.S. during WWI. It's said Italian immigrants worked in the shipyards, setting and "grinding" rivets on the huge warships. At lunch time their wives would bring fresh baked super-sized Italian rolls filled with generous amounts of meats, cheeses, and vegetables. When it was lunch time, the supervisor yelled, "Grinders" lunch! Hence, the word "Grinder" became known as delectable combination of meats, cheeses, and vegetables served on a one of a kind freshly baked bread.

In 1959, the founder of Mancino's, Samuel Sr., opened his first store in St. Clair Shores, MI. He wanted to be his own boss, and provide a future legacy for his family. In 1978, Sam Sr., opened a Mancino's in Sturgis, MI on East Chicago Road, renovating a gas station. When Sam Sr. retired, Mancino's was reopened by Sam Sr.'s son Frank Sr., in the location it is today. This Mancino's remains family-owned, operated, and independent. An original concept Sam Sr. so proudly created.

This Mancino's remains an original tradition, and is determined to keep a piece of Mancino's history alive. We will never compromise our integrity by giving false size grinders, and promise only the highest quality of food, great value, and generous portions. No gimmicks - no tricks. Come on in and let our family serve yours.
