I have been passing this spot for years and finally stopped in. Very unique menu with a variety of dishes that feature turkey. Tonight I ordered the turkey meatloaf which comes with greens and baked macaroni and cheese. A little hotsauce (it is not needed as the food is spiced) and I was good to go. The portions were large enough for me to eat half (probably have the rest for lunch).The menu featured turkey wings; drums; pitas; sandwiches and whole turkeys smoked or fried.If youre starvin like marvin or hungrier than a mofo with a hankerin for a home cooked meal prepared with some soul, definately stop in at the Turkey Grill on Woodward. Cant miss it as it sits next to valueworld and has a big yellow sign. A must for all Detroitlovers. Great service and tables for dining in. Cool display case with packaged food from Louisiana; pictures; an old shoeshine machine antique.

They also make their own ice cream (I'm pretty sure). There is now a Turkey Grille on Belle Isle but I'm not sure if it is just summer hours.

There was a newspaper article framed on the wall which described the Belle Isle grill which was located behind the Zoo.

The chili is good.

While you are there, check out a smattering of pictures of the owner with local celebs.

If you don't like turkey, this isn't the place for you.

Sweet, I must go try their FRIEND Turkey, because I have never had that type of Turkey before. Thanks for the great review and recommendation Terryh.

"FRIEND Turkey"...that's probably not a popular item in Kurdistan.

Terry - Yep, I live in the city but spend way too much time on the road for work (lots of time to post). Currently holed up in a hotel in the middle of nowhere right now.

Mmmmm this sounds really good. I have never been there, but I have been told by coworkers that I must check it out. Good prices?

We go to the Turkey Grill a few times a year. The food is ALWAYS decent and reasonable.
The Turkey Grill is open on Belle Isle in the summer months.

Can also catch them at some of the Hart Plaza festivals--I like the big wings.

I haven't been to Mr Fofo's in years. The last time I went I had a huge pastrami sandwich that I shared with my wife.
And a slice of cake that was big enough for two people.
I used to get a big fish sandwich at the Fish Nook across the street but they are gone now.

I'm pretty sure the Belle Isle Turkey Grill closed altogether a few years ago. Did it reopen?

Returned today. There wasnt any meatloaf left so the counterlady recommended the cajun drum-wing with two sides (stuffing and greens) bread and a small cup of dipping sauce. Delicious.
