An Eastern Market Thai outpost, Sala Thai delivers on quality pad Thai, chicken satay, and fried wontons.
The Potato Place, though an accurate name for this Midtown eatery, is an understatement. In addition to their 24 (!!) styles of Stuff Baked Potatoes, The Potato Place has tons of other goodness like baked goods, Fruit Slushes, hot dogs, subs, deli sandwiches, soups, and more.
Tacqueria Chilango's got your back for simple and delicious burritos on Vernor Highway in Mexicantown.
Red Smoke's special blend of hickory- and applewood-smoked chicken, pork, brisket, and ribs will delight you, along with your choice of over 12 different sides -- local draft beer and a large selection of cheap bottles will only sweeten the deal.
Sure, the building housing Motor City Soul Food may not be the prettiest thing in Detroit, but let's face it, you aren't either. Put your hypothetical differences aside and venture inside -- because once you do, you'll realize you've been missing out on some beautifully delicious comfort food, like flavorful fried chicken, mac 'n cheese, pork chops, and more varieties of cheesecake than you ever thought you needed.
There are many places in Detroit to get a Coney Dog, like Lafayette and American but Duly's, found off of Vernor Highway in Mexicantown, deserves a place on the list of Detroit coney greatness. It has the advantage of not only being just as good as the rest, but it's also the cheapest.
Tons of local Michigan brews, 30 TVs, and close proximity to Grand Circus Park make R.U.B. a great place to stumble into after a Tigers game (or to stumble from, before a Tigers game). Plus, a bunch of great BBQ dishes!
