Tired of the same old sub sandwhich? Msm is the place to go!

Today I went to msm deli with my cousin, and had an incredibly surprising experience. When we pulled up I didn't think she was serious. This place is a hole in the wall, but by far an amazing dive! We walked in and it was just an extremely busy convenient store with a deli inside. Not surprisingly... read more

Best sandwiches I have had. Open early, and stay open late. Great selection of micros. Best staff and service in town. Look past the exterior, and eat here. You will not be dissapointed. Great for lunch, and usually have plenty leftover for late night munchies.

Fantastic sandwiches, definitely worth the stop, and take them to go as the space is essentially a little market with a deli counter. One of the worst kept secrets of Tacoma, so it pays to call in your order ahead of time otherwise you could end up waiting anywhere from 20-30 minutes to get your food. Recommend the French Dip.

the food is great, prices are reasonable, its always crowded and as a sit down eatery it can boast it has tables and chairs but not a place I would eat at we always get it to go. Call ahead or you will be waiting a while.

Let me start by saying this place has, hands down, best value for money as far as deli sandwiches go. They are consistently good, quality ingredients and fast service. BUT if you get there late for lunch you may have quite a wait. There is a slight parking problem as well. BEST advice - order ahead and pick up! On... More

The sandwiches are outstanding. The place looks very unassuming when you walk in. If you go near lunch time call in your order ahead of time or plan on waiting because it will be crowded. You can't go wrong with a Mike's Deluxe.

MSM is iconic for Tacoma. One of the best places in town for a sandwich. You would never know its a deli driving past it. It looks like a convenient store. MSM stands for Magic Sandwich Makers and they truly are magic. I haven't had anything there I didn't enjoy. Their beer selection is amazing as well. Definitely call in... More

Always crowded. Call ahead advised. Have never been disappointed in any of the sandwiches we have got from MSM. A great standby that we have been going to for years.

Fresh, thick sandwiches. We order for dinner and only eat half and finish them for lunch the next day. Still tastes great! Don't be put off by the line, can always call in. A great deal.

Had lunch here with friends while on a day trip from Seattle. It seems very popular. Portions were huge, sandwiches were delicious and generous, and prices were more than fair.
