5 Detroit Burgers that Don’t Suck

I was talking to  a friend the other day and we were discussing what Detroit Restaurants and bars had the best burgers.  For most, it is very easy.  For others like me it is very difficult to name just one place who has the Best Hamburger in Detroit.  I personally have different favorites for the different type of hamburger I may want and where I might be on a given day.  I think the only thing my favorite hamburgers in Detroit have in common are cheese and bacon.  This list will be added to and revised as I visit more Detroit Restaurants and bars.  So here is my  list of 5 hamburgers in Detroit that don’t suck.

Sandy’s by the Beech is a long time Redford staple and the burgers are so fresh and juicy.  When I am here I like to order the Bacon Cheeseburger with Cheddar, what you add to it after that is completely up to you.  1/2 lb burger with fries $7.95.

Eclipse Hamburgers located in Sterling Heights is a nice burger joint.  Here I order my burger with Bacon and White Cheddar.  Again, whatever you do to your burger after that is up to you, given the numerous toppings from which they have to choose.  They 1/2 lb burger, fries and drink for $8.99 and they do deliver.

Jay’s Stuffed Hamburgers in Downtown Plymouth is a fast favorite of mine.  I love how they stuff the cheese and toppings inside the burger (hence the name).  Here I like to get the All American which is stuffed with Cheddar Cheese (other options are available) served on a toasted Brioche bun.

When I am in the Royal Oak/ Clawson area I like to stop in at Tavern on the Main.  Here the Tavern on the Main Burger is my selection, a 1/2 lb burger, bacon and Swiss cheese on a Brioche bun always hits the spot.

Shelby Pub & Grill in Shelby Township is an East Side favorite for me.  Here I like to get The Works Burger, 1/2 lb burger, with bacon, mushrooms, onions, Swiss and American cheese on a Brioche bun.  I also like to upgrade to the Waffle Fries.

Brighton’s Gem

Downtown MainDowntown Main Martini Bar & Grille located in Downtown Brighton offers an award winning menu and service to match. You can satisfy your drink desires with more than 100 different martinis, over 200 different kinds of liquors and over 100 beers, and a wine list that offers more than 55 wines.  The bar is unique and very cool with the way it lights up and the atmosphere is very inviting and relaxing.  They also offer outdoor seating weather permitting.  The Downtown Main Martini Bar & Grille’s dedicated and knowledgeable staff and takes pride in offering every guest a night worth telling everyone about. 

dt2The  Tapas Menu has dishes like the Portabella Sliders, Pear Pizza (which is topped with mozzarella and crumbled bleu cheese, diced pears, walnuts, bacon) and Pulled Pork Sliders.  You can also make any of the Tapas items an entree and get a basket of the fresh baked bread and soup or salad for $4.00.  There are also healthy and Gluten Free items available on the Tapas Menu as well.

dt4On the Entree Menu, Chef Joe offers everything from sandwiches and salads to some of the best entrees you can find in any Detroit Restaurant.  The Scallops Toscana are a big hit (Pan-seared scallops served with fettuccini pasta sautéed with sweet bell peppers, baby spinach, and garlic in a light vin blanc sauce) so is the Lobster Mac and Cheese, my favorite is the 12 ounce Veal Porterhouse.  There are many great items to select on the Entree menu, but leave room for dessert.

dt3After dinner Downtown Main is one of Detroit’s premiere places to hang out.  There are many different events such as: ladies night, live entertainment, wine tastings, happy hour and weekly food specials.
