Don't be fooled by the hole in the wall exterior: Hamtramck's Food Exchange is the real (really tasty) deal. This no frills joint specializes in comfort food standbys like burgers, chicken fingers, and hot wings, plus their famous dish, The Big Baby, a massive beef patty loaded with slice upon slice of American cheese. Let me be the first to say: yum.
