Simple business model with an exquisite sandwich. You know your food will be great when a restaurant does one thing. The focus is directed to making sure that one thing is done to the highest standard. That’s what you get at Mike’s. FYI this establishment is cash only.

Sometimes simple can be better. And Mike's Famous Ham House proves the point. There are only four items on the menu and all are excellent. It is the best place in the Detroit area for a ham sandwich. The ham is very juicy and flavorful, the sandwich is thick and served on a soft roll with or without a slice of cheese. The soups are made in house using meat pieces and bones from their hams. It is always a difficult decision whether tho have the bean or pea soup with the sandwich as both soups are excellent. For someone who wants the best ham sandwich in the southeastern Michigan area without or without a bowl of soup, I most highly recommend Mike’s Famous Ham Place.

Keeping it simple is the key to success! Mike knows how to make a mean ham sandwich and great bean or split pea soup to go with. Come hungry, portions are healthy!

More than enough ham for one or two sandwiches. Add a cup of bean or split pea sound and you have a meal. Great food at a great price

Delicious. A hidden jem right on Michigan Avenue. Breakfast and lunch are amazing and fill you up! Choices of soup each day and all are homemade and tasty. Food is best when you eat in as it’s fresh and hot. Take away is piled high and great for later. Cash only but there is an atm nearby.

My late grandfather often took me here as a wee child. Simply the best ham sandwich in town. I hate to say it I've never tried the bean and ham soup (which I'm sure is absolutely amazing) because I just can't get enough of the split pea soup which really is the highlight of every visit. This place will always be attached to those fond childhood memories of hanging with gramps and that itself warrants a 5 star.

A true Detroit legend, I've been coming here since the mid 70's when my dad would bring me here after the Tigers game. It was amazing then, and it's just as amazing now. Incredible breakfast, soups and sandwiches. All featuring a huge portion of succulent ham. Great stuff!
