Amazing Sandwiches!

Saw Maize and Blue on Man vs Food and decided when we were going to visit family in Michigan, we would have to stop in Ann Arbor and try it. I love Reuben sandwiches and it is so hard to find a good one with good quality corned beef and cooked just right and decided it was worth a shot... read more

Judy1, How do you give a place an average review when you left before eating because they had no restrooms? I almost always get the Triple Play Reuben and it is great. The sandwich is stuffed with meat. Sometimes the place gets crowded and there is a wait but it is worth it.

This is my favorite deli to eat at in Ann Arbor, and that includes Zingerman's. The sandwiches are great, and the quality is very consistent. The owner is very friendly and helpful. My go to order is the Who Came First sandwich. Highly, highly recommend Maize and Blue.

I like the Triple Play. Add a pile of fries and it is a perfect way to be your Saturday moving. Parking can be tough but that's to be expected.

We drove over an hour to try this deli, and were stuck in Ann Arbor construction traffic another hour. We walked in and the place was empty. My husband is diabetic and needed to take an injection before eating. There are NO PUBLIC RESTROOMS. Is that even legal? We never even ordered - turned around and left town.

We saw Adam Richman from Man vs. Food on the telly and he stopped by the Maize and Blue, not for a challenge but for a great deli sandwich. I look far and wide for a great rueben sandwich and I ordered what Adam did, the triple play rueben. It was a cold afternoon and the wife and I were... More

Family of 4 visiting Ann Arbor for football game. Wanted to visit Maize N Blue Deli because we heard so much about it. Few pointers that may help you enjoy it more. First, small place with limited seating - plan to visit at an off time it possible or maybe get it to go. Second, try to view menu prior... More

Food was good. Service average. Sandwich was huge. Don't think quality as good as other Deli's I've experienced. Service average. Right near campus so you'd think it would be packed but pretty much empty. Prices very good for quantity and quality.

I don't know what the fuss is about. The prices are better than Zingerman's but the sandwiches are not. The quality is not as good and they simply don't taste as good. We visited on a Friday evening at 6pm and the place was deserted. Service was good and there are lots of sandwiches to choose from. Definitely disappointed. I... More
