I always find that lunch is never long enough to get a good meal and have the time to enjoy it. So I decided to put together a list of 5 places around Metro Detroit that serve up a fast and good lunch. Of course they also have good lunch specials as well.
Sahara Restaurant in Warren and St. Clair Shores – Sahara Restaurant in Warren has only been open for a few months now but they are making a good impression in the Warren area, while the St. Clair Shores location has been open for decades. The service is good and the food comes out fast – the Lunch Special is from 11AM – 2PM. Every day you get any sandwich + 1/2 salad or cup of soup and a soft drink for $7.99 (fattoush, tabbouleh and Sahara salad are upgraded for a dollar extra as a salad.)
G.Subu’s Leather Bottle is located on Middlebelt Road in Livonia south of Eight Mile Road. A longtime staple in Livonia, G. Subu’s Leather Bottle serves a quick and hearty lunch special. Monday through Friday from 11AM – 3PM you can get a half sandwich with side salad or a cup of Soup Du Jour only 6.99. Choose one of the following: Roast Turkey, Dearborn Sausage Ham, Tuna, BLT, or Marinated Chicken.
E.G. Nick’s in Downtown Plymouth – The nice thing about E.G. Nick’s in Plymouth is the parking right behind the restaurant. This makes it easy to get in and out of the Downtown area quickly. Get their $1.95 Prime Rib Sliders every Monday for lunch. You WON’T be disappointed!
American Coney Island in Downtown Detroit has been around since 1917 and the food is still as good as ever. Although they don’t have a lunch special per say you can get a Coney, Fries and Pop for $5.90. The best part? You can be in and out in 15 minutes!
Eclipse Burgers in Sterling Heights offers up one of the best burgers in Macomb County. The service is great and the hamburger is fantastic. I would, however, call in my order ahead of time because they are quite busy during lunch. After you eat there you will see why. The special is every day from 10AM – 3PM where you get any burger or sandwich with fries and pop – $8.99.

Mudgie’s Deli was founded in February 2008 in Corktown, when the owners of McNally’s decided to move their location. The restaurant’s manager, Greg Mudge, opted to stay in the Corktown location and start his own deli to cater to McNally’s existing patrons.
Greg named the sandwiches after “anyone who picked up a paintbrush” to help. All the food is house-made, including the Fudgie Mudgie dessert — a brownie baked to order in a waffle iron, topped with ice cream and Sanders hot fudge.
Mudgie’s Deli was nominated for “Best Deli” and “Best Soup” two years in a row by WDIV-TV through their “Click On Detroit” website, and won “Best Deli in Wayne County” in the Metro Times “Best of Detroit” in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Mudgie’s was also awarded “Best Sandwich” by Hour Detroit Magazine in 2012.
Owner, Greg Mudge says he uses as much locally grown and organic food as he can to help support the local farming community. You can obviously taste the difference in the fresh vegetables and meats used in the salads and sandwiches.
And for the Vegetarian, Mudgie’s Deli is Vegetarian firendly, they offer 4 veggie sandwiches on the menu – 2 vegetarian, 2 vegan and one of their two soups each day is either vegetarian or vegan.
