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!

Omg, my boss picks up sandwiches from here every 2 weeks. Our students have lunch with Willie Stewart(Willie Stewart Academy) for several different reasons. The sandwiches and subs are so yummy and fulfilling. I took my husband there on Saturday and he really enjoyed his sub. I really can't recommend one because I only eat fish and tuna. You should...

Hipster & popular place. busy location, been there a long time. Could use some updating inside but maybe that's "the charm' of it, Very good quality meats and cheese get haphazardly jammed into a mangled fresh loaf of bread. Taste is good but the assembly line sandwich construction is a minor downfall due to gob of meat in middle and... More
