What's the Best Deli in Michigan?

It seems Taste of Home knew exactly where to look for the best and most iconic deli in Michigan. A staple in Ann Arbor for years, Zingerman's Deli was crowned the best in the Great Lakes state.

What makes this deli so extraordinary, you ask? Is it the handcrafted sandwiches or the meticulously curated selection of meats and cheeses?  Or maybe their mouthwatering specialties? We are going to go with all of the above and so much more. Here's what Taste of Home had to say about the deli that's been serving up all the amazingness since 1982;

"Zingerman’s Deli is famous across the Midwest. Come in to pick up classic deli meats or stay for lunch. Order “nosher” or “fresser” (Yiddish for small and big) size sandwiches. And sandwiches are only the beginning: You’ll also find breakfast, Jewish specialties, fresh bread, and more."


If you haven't sampled a sandwich or deli treat from Zingerman's yet, make sure to plan a trip to Ann Arbor soon. Oh, and did we mention their amazing baked goods? Incredible. Check out the full Taste of Home list of The Best Deli in Each State here.
