Nothing beats a good, hearty sandwich––and some of the best in the Valley can be found at Central Phoenix’s Miracle Mile Deli.

For more than 70 years, Miracle Mile Deli has been one of the best go-to restaurants in the Valley and it just keeps getting better. The deli provides a comfortable and casual atmosphere, great for the entire family.

The restaurant prides itself on not only delicious food but wonderful customer service as well, which can be hard to come by these days.

Traditional New York style sandwiches are the key for this menu. One of the best-selling items on the menu is their “The Straw” sandwich, which features hot pastrami piled high, topped with sauerkraut, and melted Swiss cheese. And of course, it comes with a side of hot French fries and a kosher dill pickle. However, if pastrami is not your thing, there are plenty of other great options for the whole family including grilled cheese, Mac & Cheese, hot dogs, chicken tenders, tasty shakes, and more. Their kids’ meals also come with a side of choice, drink, cookie, and a special prize.

Miracle Mile Deli goes above and beyond as well to help the community, especially local schools. For the last 70-plus years, owners of the restaurant have taken pride in their community efforts and helping Valley schools. They host dine-out events that support local school organizations, which can then give them 20% of the proceeds from sales from event attendees.

This is a great way that schools can host a special fundraising event, while participants get to enjoy some great food. The restaurant has also been a participant in several community events that have benefited organizations including Phoenix Children’s Hospital, The Phoenix Theatre District, The Madison School District families, and many more.

Whether you are craving a super filling and delicious sandwich or a warm soothing cup of soup, Miracle Mile is the spot to go when you are looking to fill up an entire family on a budget.

Housed along 16th Street between Camelback and Indian School, this centrally located restaurant is a perfect spot for a lunch meeting with friends, afternoon snack with the kids, a sweet treat, or an early dinner with the family.

If you would like information on their menu or on any of their fundraising programs for local schools, call or visit their website.
