We have enjoyed stopping in here at this deli style place for lunch or even dinner for years. It is right off main campus and bustles with student traffic. The food was always good but in the last year the size was cut in half (owner lost part of the lease???) and life seems to be snatched away. Still good... More

The good news is that Amer's has a very big selection of lunch items, the food is pretty good, and the prices are reasonable. The bad news is that service was badly disorganized and slow. Amer's was ok, but it will not be at the top of my list when I return.

One of the more interesting student hangouts close to campus. Excellent selection of pastries and sandwiches, equaled by their coffee. Great sitting area to drink coffee and watch students.

Great deli and sandwiches. Good coffee shop and great place to study where they don't bug you to buy some more or leave. Yummy frozen yogurt now, too.

Out-of-town friends who had never been to Zingermans lunched there and raved, so we decided to try Amer's. The atmosphere is definitely lacking, HOWEVER, the food is just a good, although not quite as many options, and at least 30% less expensive. Our local friends were with us and said: "I'll be back -- sooner than later. It's on State... More

I stopped here for yogurt after touring the U Mich campus one summer afternoon. It's a "get your own yogurt and toppings and weigh it" kind of place. I liked the "original tart" and key lime yogurt combo that I tried. Casual and friendly. Didn't try the deli this time but it looked good.

I go there once each visit to earn SkyMiles on my dine. Vegetarian wraps are my choice. Young, friendly staff.

the salad bar always has bad veggies. I don't know what it is with people not knowing which veggies are ripe and which are not. they have to cut them, so surely they can see if a tomato is brown... it's bad. wtf.
