Sal's Grinders is a location in Fallout 76.
Background[edit | edit source]
Sal's Grinders was a sandwich shop in the town of Beckley, owned and operated by Sal, and for a time, his partner, Grace. The shop is believed to have opened at the start of 2075, at which it had a monopoly over sandwich shops in the town after an impressive first month.
The shop specialized in cranberry sandwiches that was based on an "old secret family recipe", of which they were trucked in from an undisclosed location in Cranberry Bog. After an undefined period of time, Charlie, a grade school rival of the owner, Sal, opened a sandwich shop across the street called "Big Papa Moe's Lip Smackin' Sandwich Shack", that conveniently also specialized in cranberry sandwiches. As time passed, Sal began to lose large amounts of money due to loss of Customers, as Papa Moe's had metaphorically-hooked the people of Beckley into buying his sandwiches. In time, Grace left Sal's Grinders after Sal continually failed to be able to pay her wages and was hired at Papa Moe's. Sal was determined to figure out why Papa Moe's sandwiches were such a hit and deconstructed the ingredients to determine the root cause of the craze. Eventually, Sal followed the Papa Moe's delivery truck and discovered that the source of the cranberries was from a radiated quarry in Cranberry Bog, proving that Papa Moe's was secretly poisoning his Customers and the people of Beckley with irradiated cranberries. Determined to get revenge, he vowed to "let him (Charlie) have it." After unrest reached its peak in Beckley, the shop was abandoned, allowing Big Bad Wolf to takeover the shop and relay information back to his employers.
