We were heading out to the lake for a sail and decided to try this little hole in the wall for some take out sandwiches. The corn beef and pastrami were delicious. Loved the onion rolls. Counter service was fast and efficient. Food was great. Definitely recommend.

I'm originally from the area and grew up on deli food. I now live in Chicago and have done so for the past 20+ years and in all that time have never found a deli to match those in Michigan. I don't know if it's the water but you cannot compare the corned beef in Michigan to what I get... More

Smoked Turkey, Corned Beef, Pickled Tomatoes, Rye Bread! Coleslaw and Potato Salads were FANTASTIC! We liked the Corned Beef the best. The salami was a hit with the kids. The Russian Dressing reminded me of my Grandmother's from the Lower East side of New York CIty when I was a little girl.

I was in town for work and a coworker suggested I try this place. He raved about the pastrami and corned beef. I had the tuna one day and the pastrami the other day, I prefer the Tuna. The pastrami was good, but the Tuna was GREAT. I also tried the banana pudding and german chocolate cake, they were alright... More

Great sandwiches. I was really surprised by the quality of the food. Had a pastrami on rye and it was outstanding.

Nice to see that there is still a deli where the owner works side by side with his staff behind the counter filling carryout orders. As they say, the great ones make it look easy: great tasting corned beef (sliced thin), thick cuts of rye bread with a crunchy crust, homemade Russian dressing and your choice of either an “old”...

I love Corned Beef and I love this place! Located on 12 Mile Rd and Telegraph in Southfield, Michigan. I've had Corned Beef in many, many cities and keep coming back here. While not as big as some NY Deli sandwiches, the taste here is better. No seating, carry out only but worth it even of you have to eat... More

Star Deli is, hands down, the very best corned beef in the region. Hand sliced bread, overstuffed with moist delicious meat cannot be beat. I am partial to the Corned Beef Special, no cheese (corned beef, cole slaw, russian dressing)- but I have had great Ham and swiss and they make a Rueben that is out of this world! All... More

We go here every time we're in Detroit. All the food is great - corn beef, pastrami, cole slaw, potato salad, pickles, etc, etc. Very friendly staff. Carryout only, but that's OK.
