Forget the chains. If it has a mascot or a catchy jingle drive on by to the nearest family owned institution. Try the affordable quality Villa Italian restaurant on Gratiot where heaping helpings of Linguine Alfredo are served with generous portions of succulent shrimp. At under 14 bucks a plate which includes salad and fresh bread, the pastas and veals arent nearly as pricy as snootier Italian ristorantes.Go casual.

Sanders Barbecue on Greenfield at Fenkell. Carry out only, (paranoid suburbanites can order in advance and use the drive thru) the large and short end ribs are smothered in a sauce unlike any other Ive tasted. The sauce alone should be mass marketed. There is also a large assortment of the usual soul foods and deserts.

Bankok Cafe on 9 mile in Ferndale. Great quality Thai food with friendly and beautiful waitresses.The Thai iced tea is the best; the vegetables are never overcooked. Ive been visiting the place since 99 and never had a bad plate. Caution! Order mild.

Sands on 9mile; Sahara on Coolidge; both in Oak Park. Chaldean style middle eastern with curry soup; yellow lemon rice; salads with cucumber dressing. The half orders are under ten bucks and can almost feed two. Often on weekends there is a party going on with revelers dancing to the sounds of the middle east.

The Telway Hamburger System at 11 and John R. Enjoy greasy sliders and chili while listening to blue collar perspectives and philosophies. Avoid like the plague the bar crowd on weekends.

For Pizza, besides the deep dish Papalis, Comos has an excellent quality pizza.

House of Reuben on Eight Mile.....try the Lamplighter.

Detroit One Coney Island on Woodward across the street from the Crystal Lofts......Wendsday thru Saturday go there after 9 p.m. and get a chicken club with extra cheese and extra mayo...I guarantee it will one of the best sandwiches you ever had,if not I'll buy you a sandwich at any place you choose,;).

Mary's Grill on Plymouth near Burt rd. has one of the best grilled chicken salads I have ever had in my life.

For me, I don't think any dining experience was as impressive as the old Mauna Loa Restaurant on W. Grand Blvd. just east of the Fisher Building. Having a stream running thru the restaurant with bridges over it, and with stunning interior decorations (including Palm Trees out front), made for a wonderful dining experience (lucky for me the drinking law was reduced to 18 back in 1972).

For cheap eats and quirky ambiance, I've always marvelled at the crowd that comes into the American or Lafayette Coney Islands on a Friday/ Saturday night around 2:00 AM. Every walk of life- from yound & old, to cops, to the homeless, to people dressed to the nines... are all in there to grab a bite.

What is it about smelling those hot dogs at the home repair places? They have a vendor like that over at the Canadian Tire just across the bridge in Windsor and I can't help but buy a few from that guy there. Is there some additive or some pheromone that we just don't know about that just keeps luring us back for more??

Louie's corned beef on Harper! They do have great breakfasts at great prices. The atmosphere in there is also very cool...the waitresses on Sunday are awesome! If you haven't been there, GO...don't miss out!
Also have to second Toma's in L.P. My husband frequents the place when I'm not home to make him something! LOL

For a real treat, try Peabody's in Birmingham. It's in a 100+ year old rural barn-like building (rebuilt years ago after a fire), and the food is excellent, and very reasonably priced. Get there before 5 P.M. or there's quite a wait most times.

I think that Izzy's may avoid the kiss of death that haunted everything else that has been in that location.

Since they have been opened in mid-January, they are packed nearly every night. They are the same owners of Izzy's that was very popular in New Baltimore for so many years. One of their cooks is the guy who owned Pointe BBQ on Warren (got him out of retirement from what I understand). Heaping helpings of just about everything - you will not leave hungry.

Carolcb, I sure do remember Mitch Housey's. I used to work there when I was a teen. Sooo, did you go there for the food, the belly dancing show, or the disco dancing for the diners? :-) Mitch was a good guy. He'd never let me work past 11:00pm on school nights. I must say, you all are a great group. Since I have stumbled across this forum, I've had so many memories come back that were long forgotten.

Back on topic; Murphy's on 5 mile in Redford is a great place to go for breakfast.

The Giant System on Van Born and Monroe in Dearborn Heights. The. Best. Sliders. Crappy coneys though.

McNallys in Corktown has the best deli sandwiches in town.

Dearborn Sausuage's store on the Dearborn/Detroit border where Dix, Vernor, and Wyoming all meet has some AMAZING subs. The lunchmeat is SO fresh.

Also in that same area, the Dearborn Bakery is VERY cheap and VERY good. They are just a little hole in the wall bakery, but thier fried kibbe, thyme pies, meat pies, cheese pies, falafel, and spinach pies (lebenese spinach pies- no philo dough, just regular bread dough) are the best.

Oh, and Mykonos Coney Island on Van Born in Taylor has like the best inexpensive diner food, and some of the best greek food outside of greek town (though I sometimes argue that some of thier dishes are better than greektown's). They have the best rice pudding, the best tzanziki, best skordalia, and second best pastitso in town. Thier spinach pie is not bad either. They also make a mean breakfast skillet, and some great salads.

The best pastitso in the area is at the Redford Grille on 5 mile and Beech Daly.

Love Sizzl 'N' Spice on Monroe across from Compuware. A tad pricey, but ohhhh, man, that buffet. Guaranteed to give you a food coma for $8. Waaaaaaaaay better than American Masala on Hancock near WSU. And they deliver to the downtown area, too (for a $5 fee).
Also love Honest John's on Wednesdays because they have the best lasagna I've ever tasted. The rest of its menu isn't bad either. It's on Selden at Cass.

The local newsletter had an article about a spot on Coolidge called Ellas which features Balkan style cooking. I checked it out and ordered the Gypsy skewer with pork; bacon; and chicken with some rice cant think of the name but it came with roasted veggies mixed in the rice. Coleslaw was bland but other than that it was out of the ordinary interesting.

What about Southern Fires for those Soul Food lovers. Excellent food, reasonable prices, and great service and atmosphere. The only thing that would sort of displace it if you didn't know about it is the surrounding areas and a loft area next door..

Yes Scotty's is in the heart of Brightmoor. A certain professional hockey team owner who also owns a company and building downtown eats there often.

A good friend of mine worked there through high school.

The best hamburger in the Detroit area is Redcoat on Woodward in Royal Oak. Way better than any of the other burgers that people have clamed to be the best. Exspecally with the Pedmonties beef which has less fat than a chicken breast or a salmon filet

Wasn't that the place voted AOL City's Best a few years ago? People say they sell the best sliders around.

I've never cared much for Southern Fires. The food is okay-to-good. But for us, it's not worth the crowd and attitude from parking attendants, wait-staff.

Since Third Street closed, the best bet for a cheap, great burger (many other great items too) is Bronx.

Buzz bar also has great Pizza and sandwiches.

There's a few more locals.

Went to Toast on Woodward. I was feeling ill and ordered the Irish Oatmeal with fruit, which they were out of and the waiter suggested the granola which is also loaded with fruit. Not only was the food outstanding, the overal atmosphere and mood, as seems to be the case in many establishments with gay or seemingly gay waitstaff was upbeat and made me feel better with the positive vibe. Excellent food and service.

Yes the fries are always crispier and the slaw a little juicier when served by a seemingly gay waiter.
