Do you love a good corned beef sandwich? How would you feel if it was considered legendary? Well, I found one here in Michigan...at Jimmy Dee's. Recommended by my sister who claimed they had the very best sandwich, mom and I scooped her up for lunch and we set off to check it out.
Established in 1987, Jimmy Dee's has had the honor of being been voted with Macomb County’s Best Reuben Sandwich in 2005, 2006, 2008 & 2009 in the Macomb Daily's Readers Choice Award. They promise great food & good times. Their corned beef sandwich is their claim to fame although they also have award winning ribs.
Located in Clinton Township on the East side of Groesbeck Hwy, it's very easy to find. Clinton Township is one of the many cities that make up the Metropolitan Detroit Area that calls itself home to approx. 5,000,000 residents. Jimmy Dees' is basically a bar with a restaurant inside with a side room attached. This is where we sat and, with the tall windows looking out on the parking lot, it helped us to feel as if we weren't hiding indoors as much with the sun shining into the room.
Of course I couldn't order anything other than the legendary corned beef but...there are a lot of choices on their menu. The legendary corn beef sandwich is priced at $6.99 and is worth every cent! It was one of the largest sandwiches I've ever gotten. Served on your choice of breads or an onion roll, they offer white, rye or pumpernickel.
|This sandwich is so big, I knew I would have to cut it in half|
|Just look at that baby...|
|I ate half and took the other half home : )|
Lunch was good, the company was fun and the service was attentive and friendly. The restaurant is clean and offers a very casual atmosphere where anyone will feel comfortable visiting whether in a suit from the office or holding a hard hat and wearing steel toe boots.
You can check out Jimmy Dee's on line by clicking this link. You can get directions to their location, browse their menu items and even contact them via email or by phone. I called them to confirm and it seems they aren't on Facebook or Twitter...sorry : )
Till next time : ) Ciao & Happy Cookin'
