I love sandwiches, and this place suits my sandwich needs. The Pacific is great, maybe a little heavy on the Swiss with tuna. I could happily eat any of these sandwiches exactly as they are. You can choose your own, which I appreciate, but come on; you can and should happily eat any of the tried-and-true concoctions. They're generous with... More

I love the meatball sandwich. Great beer selection. Varied clientele and good people watching, if nothing else. Call ahead to order, it can get crowded!

My girlfriend and I got a couple sandwiches and drinks before fishing on the water front. Awesome food for the little bit of a wait. I got the 13 inch American and she got the French dip I ate my sandwich all night crabbing at the pier great food.!!!

Moved here from Chicago and was looking for a deli. If you are from the east coast this place will disappoint. I ordered a corned beef and swiss with mustard on rye. I was given a couple slices of not house made corned beef on soft rye bread, not deli rye. These are sandwiches you can make yourself at home... More

It's throwback Thursday and I decided to have a sandwich from our old family favorite: MSM Deli. While I have eaten at the Deli, which has some outside seating and a few tables inside, most often I take the sandwiches home which is just a few blocks away. ADVICE: Call ahead. I did so today and everyone was busy making... More

Best sandwich joint ever! Love the Mike's, but all of their food is great. Staff is amazing. They offer the ability to call the order in ahead of time, which is wonderful. They always seem to be busy, which is good and is worth the wait. One reviewer mentioned to not show up in a suit and tie....I totally disagree,... More

Better than Subway for about the same price (this is a little more expensive, around 8 dollars per sub) absolutely delicious fresh sandwiches at it's best. This is a tucked away gem that mainly locals know about. Great kept secret! Don't let the outdoor convenient store look fool you (it IS also a convenient store, haha) this store pops out... More

These sandwiches are the best. We've hopped off the freeway between SEA and Vancouver, WA just to eat here. A bit of caution: don't show up in a suit and tie. It's not that kinda place. Levi's and a t-shirt are just fine; you'll blend right in. This is the 'people's place' to eat, so 'atmosphere' is a relative thing,... More
