Good Eats in Detroit

Food, glorious Detroit food! 

If you’ve seen the state of my husband's belly you can tell that we’re a couple that love to eat. Detroit has tons of great food and we’re drawn to the same places while we tool around the city.

I’m not talking about fancy, schmancy fine dining places where you have to put on your Sunday best to fit in. We like those places but we just don’t get to them often. I’m talking about tasty nosh that won’t break the budget and welcomes us as we are.

Our favorite places for good eats in Detroit:

Supino Pizzeria – Our favorite pies are the Bismarck and the El Greco.

Russell Street Deli – I’ve never gone wrong with their quiche or omelet of the day.

Roast Cocktail Hour – You must try the burger! Order the whole Cocktail Hour menu and it still won’t break the bank.

Slows BarBQ – The mac-n-cheese, the Yardbird, the Triple Threat. Yum.

La Dolce Vita – Sunday brunch with bottomless mimosas. Need I say more?

Lafayette Coney Island – What’s more Detroit than a few coneys from the best coney shop in the city?

Sweetwater Tavern – Wings. Seriously good.

Mudgie's – I love a place where I can build my own sandwich. Add bacon & avocado!

Niki’s Pizza – Detroit style pizza and saganaki at the same place? Yes, please!

Foran’s Grand Trunk – Great selection of Michigan beer and top-notch burgers.

Park Bar/Budapest Grille – You must try the Chicken Shawarma!

On the radar: Word on the Street is Cliff Bell’s is kicking off a happy hour menu on August 3rd.  I’m hearing $2 shrimp cocktail, $3 calamari and mac-n-cheese, $6 fish ‘n chips, and more! We’ll be checking it out!

What are your favorite places in Detroit for a good, affordable, meal?

It's the Bucharest Grille, but yes, I agree! I never come to town without stopping in for a Hamtramck. Mmmmmmmmm! Best bar food ever.

We had the mac 'n' cheese at Cliff Bell's - last night at a Yelp event. It is good...and we went back for seconds! They brought around several other apps during our time there: shrimp, little quiches, tomato-mozz-basalmic vinegar on a stick, a little stuffed potato app with a garlicky filling.
The regular menu looked pretty good, too. Lots of smaller plates on it, along with the entrees.

The great atmosphere of The Park Bar make the shawarma taste better!

I'm jealous of you & the other Yelp Elite. I can't wait until the Happy Hour menu starts!

Thanks for the info, I've been meaning to check out 7 although personally, I don't do sushi. Well, I should say sushi doesn't like me very much!

This list was specific to places in Detroit. I'll do a Metro version soon.
