It might be easy to pass right by Gateway Deli, if it weren’t for the constant stream of guests bustling through the doors. This classic deli serves up an unusual twist on one of our favorite sandwiches that’s worth waiting in line for.

Located in the Fort Washington Plaza, in between Washington and Cass – Gateway is a quick jaunt from downtown offices. At lunch time the place is bustling (sometimes downright packed) with workers and residents who line up in droves for Gateway’s fresh soups, salads, and deli sandwiches. Call ahead with your order for a shorter wait.

There is plenty of seating inside as well as an outdoor patio with several tables that fill up quickly when the weather is warm. Gateway has a second downtown location inside Ford Field, on the second level, which is equally teeming with hungry customers during Lions home games.

Stop by for breakfast and choose from one of ten specialty omelettes, pancakes, French toast, or breakfast sandwiches and wraps. The Western wrap – made with egg, ham, green pepper, and cheese – is wonderfully satisfying and portable. You can also order breakfast items at lunch time.

A selection of homemade soups rotates daily; you can’t go wrong with the matzo ball soup which is always on the menu. Gateway’s fresh salads make for a light yet satisfying lunch. The fattoush, Greek, and Cobb are all good choices.

Gateway’s original sandwich creations are consistently delicious, with potions that will never leave you hungry. We’re fans of the Red Wing, made with rare roast beef, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, and “tiger” sauce. You can also build your own sandwich, selecting from enough meats, cheeses, and breads to create just about any combo you can dream up.

But the stars of the show are Gateway’s potato pancake sandwiches. A traditional reuben becomes a sassy new flavor experience when the tangy, thinly sliced corned beef is tucked in between two lovely fried potato cakes. You’ll never go back to regular ol’ bread again.
