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.

I had the Mikes deluxe and it was average. It wasn't bad or excellent. I would go there in a pinch but I would know ahead of time to expect a long wait. It is a very popular place for sure. The price is great for what you get.

These are the best sandwiches I've ever had. Nothing fancy, but good old fashioned deli sandwiches. Couldn't eat them when I was pregnant but made my husband go get me one the second I delivered!

Mikes Deluxe is the best! You will not be disappointed. The quality is great, and the sandwiches are big enough to share or save the other half for another meal. Call ahead. They also have a great beer selection!!!!

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
