Mudgie’s Deli was founded in February 2008 in Corktown, when the owners of McNally’s decided to move their location. The restaurant’s manager, Greg Mudge, opted to stay in the Corktown location and start his own deli to cater to McNally’s existing patrons.
Greg named the sandwiches after “anyone who picked up a paintbrush” to help. All the food is house-made, including the Fudgie Mudgie dessert — a brownie baked to order in a waffle iron, topped with ice cream and Sanders hot fudge.
Mudgie’s Deli was nominated for “Best Deli” and “Best Soup” two years in a row by WDIV-TV through their “Click On Detroit” website, and won “Best Deli in Wayne County” in the Metro Times “Best of Detroit” in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Mudgie’s was also awarded “Best Sandwich” by Hour Detroit Magazine in 2012.
Owner, Greg Mudge says he uses as much locally grown and organic food as he can to help support the local farming community. You can obviously taste the difference in the fresh vegetables and meats used in the salads and sandwiches.
And for the Vegetarian, Mudgie’s Deli is Vegetarian firendly, they offer 4 veggie sandwiches on the menu – 2 vegetarian, 2 vegan and one of their two soups each day is either vegetarian or vegan.
