Takes a while to make the sandwiches, especially when busy, but these guys really take pride in the perfect sandwich! They have about 50 combo sandwiches, but you can change any of them up...which I did: turkey, corned beef, havarti, cole slaw and 1000 island dressing on some fantastic bread that holds up - fantastico! Big, lean and beautiful. Can't... More

Can't say how the food is. So far after 30 minutes the one sandwich we ordered still has not arrived. Don't come if in a rush if we hadn't paid would be leaving.

Arrived on a Thursday in the summer at 11:58...and it took over an hour to get a sandwich. This is NOT a walk in spot and the manager said we didn't call in. Seriously, no apologies. It's all our fault that we came here. There are other dell's in the area. Sandwich was okay buy experience was ruined.

Do not expect to wash your hands or use the lone restroom here, as they only have one tiny bathroom. Deli food was standard; not great and not terrible, just basic. I did find it really expensive!

If you want good and sophisticated sandwiches, this is the place ! Good size, plenty of possibilities, and delicious... I took away but the place is really original, you'll like it for sure if you support the wolverines !

This deli is a gem! The food was great, the service super, and the guy that runs/owns it was the best. He engaged us in conversation, and was so interesting to speak with. The food was fair price, tasted very good. I intend to go back

Went there for lunch about 1 PM with 6 adults and 5 children. We easily found our tables and placed our orders. Both my wife and I each got a Triple Play Ruben because we saw one that someone else had ordered. It was delicious. It was so thick you had to unlock your jaw like a snake to take... More

Great sandwiches on toasted bread that is fantastic. My only complaint is that the roast beef in the sandwich wasn't hot, but everything else with it was so good I didn't care, including the quality of the beef! Beats Zingermans on price (but still not cheap at over $10 per sandwich) and I think it meets them on quality, but... More

Say hello to Kelly who loves taking care of hungry students and parents. The sandwiches are large and very good.
