“WAY better than Subway or Jimmy Johns!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Generous sized subs with unique flair. Two locations - one in Marshall and one downtown Battle Creek. Try the Baby Bull - roast beef with a horseradish sauce sure to spice you up for the day.

“Great Sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

I was in Battle Creek for a few days on business, and Pastrami Joe's was recommended for lunch. Good recommendation. They were very busy, but the service was still very friendly. Sensing it was my first time there, the lovely lady at the counter explained everything I needed to know. They have a wid variety of sandwiches, both hot and cold. They take traditional deli sandwiches and put their own spin on them. I had the Jamama, which is like a Reuben but with cole slaw instead of sauer kraut. All their sandwiches looked tasty. They also have great brownies and chocolate chip cookies. A nice surprise was Vernor's ginger ale "on tap." There are some great soups and chili, and you can get a nice soup and sandwich lunch.

“GREAT Fresh Bread!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

They offer a great variety of extremely fresh sandwiches on a variety of very fun and unique breads. Great soups vary as well. Shockingly short hours 11:30 - 4pm I believe. Lunch only restaurant. The area business people hoard the place at peak lunch time. Inside and outdoor seating. We are part of hot air balloon events that happen in Battle Creek and it is a tradition to eat at Pastrami Joe's.

“Always crowded, must be a good sign!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

Pastrami Joe's is a perfect place for lunch in downtown Battle Creek. I've had many of the sandwiches (my fave is Jessie's Cheese Please), and have never been disappointed. The pizzas are fantastic, and on days I want to eat lighter, the salads are really good as well. The owners and staff are always friendly and smiling, and even though it's always very crowded, you don't wait long for your food. It's a little pricier than other sandwich places in downtown, but always well worth it.
