If you are in the mood for a deli sandwich, this is the place to go in Tacoma. These guys make a great sandwich and the price is surprisingly inexpensive. This is a deli but they have soda, water and other drinks in the cooler and a really good beer selection as well. Grab a Mike's Deluxe and bag of... More

I redeemed a gift certificate I had won at a charity auction in December. I ordered 2 sandwiches to take home: a Reuben and a Philly steak. They were both delicious! It is a busy place - people who live closer call ahead and many were picking up their orders. The owner is kind; the employees are efficient. The prices... More

I frequent MSM deli, and every time I go, I get a Mike's deluxe! It's an amazing deal (6.99) for a sandwich that lasts me for two meals, and it's the most delicious sub I've ever had from any restaurant!! I recommend it to anyone:D

I have been coming here for 20 years. I used to fight being a grown up and would chicken out from getting the Mike's Deluxe with sprouts because I thought I wouldn't like it (I'm a pretty picky eater.) Man I'm I glad I stepped up years ago. I still can't do the tomatoes on it but other then that... More

After four visits I still cannot figure out why this place is so popular. I'm told it's the bread, but it's nothing special. Tried a different sandwich each visit and each was a poor representation that can be had elsewhere for better quality and a better value. Service was surly, but probably seems orderly if you're a regular. I was... More

I like the place. The decor doesn't relate to the quality of the sandwiches...LOL... They are huge and full of flavors. Really like the place. We purchased them and found a park near by for an afternoon picnic.

They must make 1000 sandwiches a day. Always hopping. Food is great. French dip is great, Reuben as well. Be prepared to wait or call ahead.

I first discovered MSM Deli back in 2002 when I lived in North Tacoma. After moving, it was quite awhile before I had it again. In 2011, I started working in downtown Tacoma and MSM became my preferred lunch choice.

They make great sandwiches. I get the Mike's Deluxe every time, which is a behemoth, but it is awesome. The other sandwiches I've seen (though never tasted) all looked delicious. Do yourself a favor-call ahead. It is super busy there and, though they make sandwiches at a feverish pace, you could find yourself waiting for 10-15 minutes. It's short on... More

We go every few weeks. This is one of my favorite places to get sandwiches. Call it in they are so busy. If you go early enough grab some of there yummy cookies they sell out quick. This is not a place to sit and eat it is in a run down mini mart. Try a Mikes deluxe!
