My brother would recommend Gonellas in Detroit. Though I've never been, he has claimed it is delicious!

Thecarl.... I agree 100%.

My gall bladder just had a twang of pain with me just looking at all that corned beef and pastrami stacked sky high!

But what happened to the Bread Basket Deli on Greenfield in the Lincoln Shopping Center at 10 1/2 Mile? They're not listed in the locations.

I'm still partial to Eph's.

Re: Bread Basket Deli in Oak Park, it was listed in this week's Metro Times among the best places for a sandwich.

Detroitfats,

Is that Gonella's six and two on a hard or soft roll for you?

D'Riv

I usually go for the soft roll, but every once in a while the hard shows my jaws who's the boss.

Soft for me too. They cut them in half at such a severe angle that the tip of each half comes to a sharp point, can be dangerous with the hard roll.

The Oak Park Breadbasket Deli's triple sandwiches are ginormous. One nearly has to do like a snake and unhinge their lower jaw in order to nibble away at those things. Chase it with their matzoh ball soup and one doesn't have to eat for a month.

If the Breadbasket Deli on Greenfield in the Lincoln Center Shopping Center is not part of the same chain as the company that has 5 restaurants in Detroit, Warren, etc... then why do they have the same identical name and signage? (I've got a Greenfield Bread Basket Restaurant menu, and it has the same unique restaurant name lettering as the 5 restaurant website.)

The only legal possibility for the same restaurant name and signage is probably the other 5 are a franchise of the original on Greenfield... anyone know?

Smogboy, I agree about those Bread Basket sandwiches, my favorite is the United Meat (Corned Beef, Pastrami, Swiss, Russian Dressing on an Onion Roll). I can only ever eat 1/2 sandwich.

And the matzoh ball in their soup is the size of a baseball. One has to sheer off pieces of matzoh in order to consume it.
