My family and I were driving back through Michigan while on vacation and needed to stop off. We found the maize and blue grill and were more than impressed. The owner and the staff were fantastic. They were so friendly to my family and most impressive was how nice they were to my two year old son. The owner went... More

Saw Maize and Blue on Man vs Food and decided when we were going to visit family in Michigan, we would have to stop in Ann Arbor and try it. I love Reuben sandwiches and it is so hard to find a good one with good quality corned beef and cooked just right and decided it was worth a shot... More

Judy1, How do you give a place an average review when you left before eating because they had no restrooms? I almost always get the Triple Play Reuben and it is great. The sandwich is stuffed with meat. Sometimes the place gets crowded and there is a wait but it is worth it.

This is my favorite deli to eat at in Ann Arbor, and that includes Zingerman's. The sandwiches are great, and the quality is very consistent. The owner is very friendly and helpful. My go to order is the Who Came First sandwich. Highly, highly recommend Maize and Blue.

I like the Triple Play. Add a pile of fries and it is a perfect way to be your Saturday moving. Parking can be tough but that's to be expected.

We drove over an hour to try this deli, and were stuck in Ann Arbor construction traffic another hour. We walked in and the place was empty. My husband is diabetic and needed to take an injection before eating. There are NO PUBLIC RESTROOMS. Is that even legal? We never even ordered - turned around and left town.

We saw Adam Richman from Man vs. Food on the telly and he stopped by the Maize and Blue, not for a challenge but for a great deli sandwich. I look far and wide for a great rueben sandwich and I ordered what Adam did, the triple play rueben. It was a cold afternoon and the wife and I were... More

Food was good. Service average. Sandwich was huge. Don't think quality as good as other Deli's I've experienced. Service average. Right near campus so you'd think it would be packed but pretty much empty. Prices very good for quantity and quality.

Thank shmtw2
