Overwhelming Number of Choices

Every time I go I am orwelmed by the choices. It takes too long to read all the choices and descriptions written on the giant chalkboard. I usually just give up and tell them what I want rather than choose one listed. The sandwiches are tasty and very generous in size. One can often be shared.

Great selection of sandwiches hand made for you on the spot. The restaurant is clean and bright. Many different kinds and types of breads. Good value for price.

Refreshing. Good service, well-prepared sandwiches. A local gathering spot. Indoor environment is a bit bland, but summer sidewalk seating is generally quiet and charming.

The list of sandwiches at Mike's shows names that are clearly an imitation of Zingerman's in Ann Arbor. Unfortunately, that's where the resemblance ends. Mike's corned beef, although lean, is rather flavorless, and the quantity doesn't begin to match the mile-high stacks that other (and better) delis provide. On the other hand, Mike's prices are lower, so you get what... More

Could have been a 5 but I have been to Zingermans in AnnArbor. I had Chili and the Sidney. Both were good. Employees were awesome. Good place I will be back

I think the quality of the meat and the bread makes a deli sandwich. The sandwiches were great and I have been stopping by for years whenever I am in the area. The sandwich changed this year, not sure if they had a change in suppliers or the amount of meat they put on a sandwich, it is not the... More

I hadn't been in for quite awhile, but came in for lunch. I ended up getting a half sandwich and cup of soup. The soup (broccoli cheese) was really good. The sandwich wasn't very good. The pickle was bad... The service was ok. Nothing great. The sandwich, soup, and a soda was $9.27, which was a pretty good deal. Their... More

The best sandwich in town! Varieties only they can come up with and there are at least 100 of them. The best meats, cheeses and bread. Don't miss a stop here!

If you're hungry and want a real sandwich for lunch then this is where you want to be. Yes, I know that there are those that claim that Zingemans is the only deli to go to in the area and to that I say hogwash. Mikes has a fantastic array of deli sandwiches that are filled with flavor and will... More
