Mikey & Mel’s
8191 Maple Lawn Blvd., Fulton.
When Harley and Aaron Magden were
kids, they frequently accompanied their father,
Mikey, and grandfather, Mel, to meetings for
their window and carpet businesses — many of
which were conducted inside Cleveland delis.
When the charismatic Mikey Magden died
in 2018 at age 66, the brothers decided to open
Mikey & Mel’s Deli in Fulton in their father’s
and grandfather’s honor.
“We wanted to re-create the kind of deli we
would sit in for hours,” Harley Magden said,
“with really big sandwiches, five-egg omelets,
everything made from scratch.”
The deli, which opened last fall, already
is known for its corned beef and brisket and
generous portions. Just how big are those
sandwiches? The ”small” size contains a full
half pound of meat.

of Mikey & Mel’s Famous Deli, located at 8191 Maple
Lawn Blvd. in Fulton.
