Michigan Deli Named One Of The Best In The Country
Just a few blocks down from the Rouge River in Southwest Detroit is where you will find the Michigan establishment that was named one of the best delis in America by Mashed, late last year.
“An authentic deli is all about manned counters of fresh cold cuts (especially pastrami and corned beef), cheeses, and made-to-order sandwiches, with rye bread being the cornerstone,” Mashed explains. They also opened their feature by explaining a bit about the history of Jewish delis in America.
This popular lunch spot in Detroit has been in business for over 75 years. They pride themselves on consistently serving up made-to-order sandwiches.
“Their layered subs come in a variety of sizes, from six all the way up to 18 layers, piled high with ham, salami, capicola, and many other choice cold cuts, cheeses and vegetables to satisfy any type of hunger,” Mashed says.
The way you order your classic Italian at Gonella’s Deli is very unique and creative. You select how many layers of meat you want and how many layers of cheese. For example, a 12 and 2, is 12 layers of meat with 2 layers of cheese. That will cost you about $12.
Then, there’s the more traditional “other subs” portion of the menu at this best Michigan deli in Detroit. This includes chicken salad, tuna salad, and vegetarian options.
Finally, if you want to create your own, you also have that option. It also follows the layers formula. Choose anywhere from one to five meats, and then top it with a cheese (or a few cheeses).
Gonella’s also caters. That menu is specific to mini footer, whole loaf, or party subs, all served on fresh ciabatta bread.
When you think of your favorite deli, most likely a sandwich with a crunchy pickle comes to mind. However, the Michigan deli named one of the best in America has something for every meal. They now have a second location open in Redford (10021 Telegraph Road).
