The Metro Detroit area is sprinkled with great food and drinks, but the sandwiches are to die for. Not just any sandwich, but large sandwiches, stacked to the sky. What makes a good sandwich? Piles of meat (or veggies if that’s your thing) loaded with your favorite condiments. Whether you like cold cuts or warmed buns, here are a few places with unique sandwiches around town!
Located in southwest Detroit a classic neighborhood staple is Mike’s Famous Ham Place. They have been serving up fresh ingredients since 1974, so you know they are the real deal. Best known for fresh thick cut ham slices served on a toasted bun or served with eggs over easy. Pegged as the world’s best ham sandwiches, you won’t be disappointed with this family owned restaurant.
If you’re in the mood for corned beef, you must get a classic from Mudgie’s Deli & Wine shop, located in the heart of historical Corktown! Not only can you get the best corned beef but a libation as well. They weren’t voted best deli for 7 years in a row for nothing.
Russell Street Deli has been serving sandwiches in the Metro Detroit area for over 25 years. With applewood ham or sugar-cured bacon, egg, and cheddar or American cheese on an English muffin or toast. It’s always made with love, so you should try them out.
Who doesn’t like HUGE sandwiches, with meat piled on mile high and an onion roll?! Well, at Ernie’s Market that’s the only way they are served. Metro Detroit loves this historical neighborhood staple, still run by its original owner.
All sandwiches don’t consist of just two slices of bread and lunch meat. There are also non- traditional breads and healthy choices. So try a healthy and unique sandwich called “The Kingpin”, which consists of fresh mozzarella , roasted red peppers, red onions, tomatoes, homemade basil and pesto.
