    Corned beef all the way is insanely good! The hot pastrami is great, but request light on the mustard or get it on the side.

    You have to seat next to strangers on long tables. No big deal, everyone is nice.

    Nobody makes sandwiches like Russell Street Deli sandwiches. Even Garrison Keillor is a fan. Why aren't you? [Eater 38 Member]

    I have an addiction to the Avocado Melt but all of the sandwiches are good (and Scooby Doo-sized).

    Again, go early or don't bother. This place is packed even when the Farmer's Market it not in session. Locally grown ingredients, ever changing menu and an incredible selection.

    Every time I come here, I am reminded why I don't make it a habbit! The staff is rude and always in a hurry. Food is good, but not worth my money for the aggrivation.

    With Detroit's Sy Ginsberg Corned Beef, it's hard to go wrong.
