However you get to school in the morning, you and many other Mason students have undoubtedly passed by 7-11 and the questionable-looking deli and ice cream place next door.

However, on the other side of that white door lies heaven-on-earth. Mike’s Deli has recently become a hot spot among Mason students, especially the senior class.

Every day, the plain brown bags, aluminum foil wrappers, and small white chip bags litter the senior alcoves during the middle of the day. Senior Jeremy Stewart, a Mike’s Deli employee, has brought in business for the place by introducing it to all of his friends, who in turn have gone there almost every single day since they were introduced.

“I started working at Mike’s Deli at the end of the summer, and when people asked where I worked I would tell them and they had no clue what I was talking about. Now when I work I see lot of people that are from Mason, and the name is very well known around the school. It’s starting to become very popular,” said Stewart.

When Mike’s Deli came into my life I was a little skeptical at first, but after I took one bite into that “Dixie Chicken,” the world became brighter and I almost had an out-of-body experience.

“It’s the best place to eat in Falls Church. It fills me up without slowing me down,” said senior Max Kaplow who is often seen in the senior alcove with a “Belly Buster” breakfast sandwich or a “Bacon Cheddar Cheeseburger” from Mike’s.

Mike’s popularity will surely continue to grow as its delicious selection of sandwiches, ice cream (all made on their premises), and milkshakes is discovered by more and more people.

Located at 112 N. West Street in Falls Church, Mike’s Deli is open daily.  For more information and full menus, visit http://mikesdeliatlazysundae.com/index.html
