Of course, his sandwiches are out of this world! - and priced like it's 1970. If you're ever in the area, stop in. You won't be disappointed. One note: get there early as the line to... More

This man LOVES his job and the customer experience is the best. The day we went it was very busy. I started to go outside to sit down. Ernie called out to me he would get me a chair. Within two minutes I was sitting down waiting to place my order. That good old fashion customer service was so welcome.... More

Ernie makes it all worth while, sandwiches made fresh and of course his famous "kisses" All Michigan products carried in the store. A real hidden gem! Where can you get a mile high stacked sandwich for 4 bucks - amazing
