    An intoxicating aroma of slow cooked pork hits you before you even walk through the front door of Parks Old Style Bar-B-Q. It’s the smell of ribs growing more tender by the hour, over a custom wood-fired pit. This family-run business has been turning out some of Detroit’s best barbecue for 50 years. Let’s talk about the rib sauce for a min [...]

    Food from a gas station is normally something we’d resort to only in dire straights: on long road trips when the options are slim, or when we’re low on fuel and short on time. We usually end up with lukewarm hot dogs that have been rolling over a grill for hours or prepackaged sandwiches of unknown origin. But in the case of Las Cazuelas Gr [...]

    When it’s hot outside and you’ve been trekking around Eastern Market all morning, nibbling on something sweet and frozen while you rest your legs will always hit the spot.

    By the time we make it past the mid-week hump, we sometimes need a break from cooking so we can conserve our energy and rally for the second half of the week. We love bringing home Chinese take-out, but with so many choices scattered around the city it can be tough to figure out which ones are diamonds in the rough, and which ones are just rough. [...]

    We love Detroit’s signature square pizzas as much as the next person, but some days we’re really in the mood for a classic NY slice. One with a thin, foldable crust, where the cheese is so cheesy it leaves a gooey trail of cheese threads as you pull one slice away from the pie. Does that make us bad Detroiters? Or does it just make us hungry? [...]

    It’s easy to overlook Dan & Vi’s Pizza. Rather, it would be very easy to go about your life never even knowing this hidden gem exists. You’re unlikely to pass by it on the lonely stretch of Chene in Poletown East on your way to or from anything. But Dan & Vi’s has a secret menu item that is worth seeking out. It’s called the de [...]
