What’s that? He’s writing about a deli? Why yes, yes I am. This may seem out of place but I feel compelled to write a review about a convenience store in Atlantic Highlands named Mike’s (not to be confused with the chain sub shops). There is no inside seating, and their cooking area is a little more than a counter and small griddle, but man, they sure know how to whip up a decent sub. Whenever I am working over at the Strauss Mansion Museum, I find myself here picking up lunch or dinner. All half subs are $5.99, regardless of what you want inside them (even bacon). I’ve never ordered the whole, but I did not have to. They pack so much meat and cheese into their sandwiches that unless you are wandering in from 40 days in the desert, you can probably be suited with a half. I like to get their “Garden State” sub, which is Chipotle chicken, spicy Gouda cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, and a peppercorn mayonnaise. Other combos contain the norm you can expect from a deli, and they also offer breakfast sandwiches in the morning.
