Good Sandwhiches but...

Hipster & popular place. busy location, been there a long time. Could use some updating inside but maybe that's "the charm' of it, Very good quality meats and cheese get haphazardly jammed into a mangled fresh loaf of bread. Taste is good but the assembly line sandwich construction is a minor... read more

My wife and I went here for lunch because of the reviews. Once inside, I was sure we were at the wrong place. If this is supposed to be a deli, it's got a long way to go. Undeterred, we ordered the Mike's and meatball sandwiches and sat down at one of three small dirty tables. Our sandwiches arrived fairly... More

This is the only place I know of where I can find east coast crusty bread sandwiches. The chain outfit that makes submarine sandwiches is so not what I'm used to with their soft and mushy bread - even when they toast them! SMS is the place to go for crusty submarines and they're loaded with meat! Just be sure... More

I found this place online as we were visiting Tacoma and I was looking for a good Italian sub. This place seemed highly rated and we were not disappointed. The sandwiches we bought were very good and huge. We could not believe how much we got for the price. We would definitely come here again when in the area.

I did not try their specialty sandwiches but my built to order sandwich was fresh and delicious. The soda cooler had old fashioned bottled Coca Cola...score! Their soups were good too. Definitely a place to try on your travels, if in Tacoma area. The employees were nice as well.

I have been eating here since junior high, and my all-time favorite sandwich is the Mike's Deluxe! Their food is excellent, and reasonably priced! I have them programmed in my phone, that is how often I eat there. You won't be sorry.

Definitely my favorite sandwich place in Tacoma. That being said, just because that is the case, does not make it excellent. The sandwiches are pretty good and there is a great beer selection to chose from. The main drawback is the wait time. It can take up to 30 minutes or so if you just turn up and order a... More

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 though, 90% of... More
