United Meat

Go solo, order the United Meat, leave a gracious tip, then take that huge sandwich home and tear it up. My favorite deli by far. It's a must every time i go back to Detroit.

Corned beef piled high...crunchy crust rye bread and yummy cole slaw. This is what I was hoping I'd get...but I am so often disappointed in corned beef sandwiches. Not so at the Bread Basket. I have driven by a hundred times and never stopped....so glad I did today!!

I go regularly and am very pleased with the service and quality of food. My favorite is the roast beef on rye with cheddar. The sandwiches could easily feed two. My dog is always excited when we enter the parking lot, know that good things are comiing her way!

When I jones for a 171/2, this is where I place my carry out order. Absolutely the best corned beef on rye with slaw, Swiss and Russian dressing along with a new pickle -- upon request. This is the only sandwich I have been ordering from the restaurant for years. The people know my name - that's how often I... More

I started at the orignal, but have lately been to the Royal Oak location. The sandwich to end all sandwiches. Real old school deli cucumber--- pickles, more cucumber than pickle. The meat piled high on a roll and your all set. No better corned beef in the Detroit metro area. Not to be missed.

This is probably the best deli I have been in my travels. I have eaten there many times and actually had sandwiches flown 900 miles for meetings. The food is the best and the portions are very large and top notch. I would recommend if you are in the Detroit area it is a place you must visit.
