“Worth the road trip stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

We knew we'd be headed past Saginaw during lunch on our recent road trip. A quick check of Sagniaw revealed this #1 spot. The location wasn't quite what we were expecitng, and we drove past the little white building on the first pass. Upon driving by again, we decided to check it out. We were probably the only out of town people, and by the time we left the place was full of locals. The menu was quite extensive, not just one italian sub, almost 10 different ones! So many selections, and excellent prices compared to the measly amount of toppings you get at other sub places along the interstate. Even the vegetarian in the group had a few options. The bread was so soft and fresh, a great base to great sandwiches! We were glad we arrived early, as it was definitely the hot spot for lunch.

“Consistently outstanding subs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

I have been eating Intermission Deli subs since the late 80's and they are easily the best subs in town. They have high quality, freshly sliced Italian meats, as well as regular turkey, ham and roast beef, all with excellent flavor that far surpasses any of the pre-processed crap at the chain sub shops. They get their bread delivered fresh every morning from a local bakery and the combination of ingredients is as close to sub perfection as I've tasted. The owner and staff are very friendly and extremely efficient, and their prices are incredibly reasonable. This is a true gem within Saginaw! The only bummer is if they run out of bread before their scheduled closing time, but I understand their reasons for not ordering more bread than they know they will use each day. So, it's best to get their before 3:00 PM, just to be safe.

“Great Subs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

I have enjoyed Intermission Deli subs since they were in the old Fordney Hotel. My personal favorite is #18. Having moved away from Saginaw many years ago, whenever I am back in town I alway stop to get at least one if not two to take with me for the drive. Make sure to get their early, folks line out the door at lunch time!

“A MUST for lunch in Saginaw”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2013

Intermission Deli is one of Saginaw's culinary gems. Homemade bread, fresh sliced deli meats, and quick service. Great lunch spot! They take credit cards.

“Wait! This photo here does not look like anything I am familiar with!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2013

I have eaten sandwiches at Intermission Deli since it first opened! Always top quality meats and fresh ingredients! Friendly staff & owner! Amazingly good bread! Never had a bad sandwich from them!
The food in this photo does not reflect anything have even known them to have. I could be wrong. But this is a deli SANDWICH SHOP.
