Before bread, sandwiches were haphazardly supported by two hands high-fiving. Enjoy better-constructed eats with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of subs and casual fare at Mike's Subs in Kenmore.
The sandwich gurus at Mike's refuel empty stomachs with classic and inventive subs served hot or cold at a shop that dates back more than 50 years. Mike's original hero sub includes ham, salami, and cheese and comes in mini ($5.89) and full-size ($8.99) versions. Eaters can sink their teeth into chicken-finger pizza subs with a choice of sauce ($5.19–$9.69) or wrap hands, jaws, or protective force fields around an aptly named Steak Knock-Out garnished with banana-pepper rings ($5.89–$9.29). Customers can opt to top their comestibles with grilled peppers, onions, or mushrooms, as well as generous helpings of Mike's signature hot-pepper relish. Sirloin-steak tacos ($5.99) break taste buds from their sandwich hypnosis using their tender succulence and a dangling pocket watch, and 20 jumbo chicken wings ($13.99) arrive coated in a tangy special sauce.
When Mike's Subs first opened in 1956, the menu was simple: cold-cut subs, on untoasted buns, topped with the kitchen's only condiment: Mike's Special oil. Mike's prepares hot and cold subs alike, such as buffalo chicken and sausage spinach, which are topped with rich sauces, vegetables such as mushrooms and garlic, and cheese such as provolone and sharp cheddar. While chefs slice sandwiches lengthwise, deep fryers bubble with french fries or onion rings, and pizza pies are made with ingredients like their traditional buffalo pizza. Mike's also arranges party platters of dinner rolls, meats, and cheeses, which allow parties of up to 40 people to build their own sandwiches. Mike's has also recently expanded with a full dining room.
