Dream Dinners

Reviews:
I have been going to Dream Dinners for about a year and a half. My mom bought me a Groupon and they hooked me with the Dream Rewards program. The rewards program gives you a various % off each month but the trick is that you have to go every month to keep the rewards going, so apparently it works since here I am over a year later and still doing it. Dream Dinners makes eating at home so easy. They have about 15 different meal options each month that you choose from in 3 or 6 serving sizes (minimum 36 servings). The ingredients and instructions for each meal are set up for you and you put them together according to the dummy proof directions and then you put everything in one big ziploc bag and stick it in your freezer and then pull it out the night or two before you want to eat it and cook it according to the printed cooking instructions they give you. The food options are really good, there are repeats a few times a year but there is really good variety and there have only been a couple of meals that I wasn't thrilled with. They also have sides (veggies, bread, dessert, etc) that you can buy. It takes about an hour to prepare all your meals and the meals average about $5/serviing which is pretty good compared to going out or having to grocery shop and figure out what you want to make. This has really changed my family's life I think my husband and I have forgotten how to actually cook because Dream Dinner's takes all the thought out of it.

Hungarian Strudel Shop

6816 Park Ave
Allen Park, 48101
Reviews:
A true gem. Old world bakery featuring .... strudel. There are some cool photos where you see table-sized sheets of pastry so thin that you can see through them. All types of strudel. You can get it ready to eat or frozen to bake at home. They supply MANY restaurants who advertise "home baked strudel". This is the real deal. Closed Monday.
A friend of mine found out that I was going to Allen Park to visit a client, and he handed me a piece of paper with the address to the Hungarian Strudel Shop written on it. My appointment was less than a half mile away from here, so I headed to the shop at 1:00. Their hours are limited (8AM - 2PM), however it's certainly well worth the visit. Park right in front, and walk into the quaint, old shop. I purchased 2 different types of strudel, as well as a plate of Walnut "something or other" (I believe it was the first time that I saw that word which described the wrapped walnut goodness, and perhaps it was Hungarian?) that was very delicious, and covered in powdered sugar. I very much enjoyed the consistency of the flaky strudel.
Everything you've read here is true. The quality, the freshness, the authenticity. Except for one comment, about the area, was way off. This neighborhood is safe, solid and stable. It's not Northville, it's not Bloomfield Hills, but Allen Park is not a bad place. If it were at Schaefer and Tireman, I'd say be careful. But this neighborhood is totally safe....

I have experienced nothing but good service and good quality I have been ordering from here for the last 3 years . Thanks for coming out in the snow storm today. As always good job
Have been here a few times now and every time has been filled with joy. Their slogan, "Papas Does It Better!" is not just the slogan, it's the truth! Papas make pretty prizza.
Yummy! Fast delivery & good pricing! I will be ordering this again & again!!

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

15050 Southfield
Allen Park, 48101
Reviews:
Third time here with the family and I decided to write a review for their excellent service. I've been to a few Krispy Kreme stores and this was the first one that gave every customer a free original glazed donut. We came in and they gave us 4 free donuts, one for each of us. We proceeded to sit down and order 2 large cups of coffee, and they told us that they were going to brew a fresh batch of coffee. Great! We decided to buy 4 more original glazed donuts after a while and the lady at the counter said that those were on the house too! Because apparently, they made us wait 5 minutes for our coffee. I'd give them 6 stars for service if I could. P.S. Donuts were good as usual.
LOVE Krispy Kreme!!! No long review needed! These thangs speak for themselves! Best when that red lights on!
+ Friendly service, good selection of donuts - Original glazed donuts have strange texture Went here tonight for a some hot original glazed. They seem to have the hot sign on around 5:00pm each evening for a few hours. As you walk in, they hand you a free

Liberati’s Italian Deli & Bakery

7607 Allen Rd
Allen Park, 48101
Reviews:
I eat a TON of food from this Italian spot in Allen Park. Probably because it's right next to my office and we always have food for meetings. And they deliver. And give us a bill rather than take payment at the time. Most local businesses do NOT do that and it can be very difficult to balance having lots of people in for a meeting with paying. The people at Liberati's know us well and just come on it and know where to put everything. And they treat us very, very well. While I think I've only gotten an individual meal here once (a slice of pizza) I have eaten pretty much everything on the menu. The pizza is delicious but my favorite is their lasagna - both meat and vegetarian. The veg version is sinful. Very, very sinful. But amazing. I often order a platter of meats and cheeses and a few loaves of bread so that everyone can make sandwiches. The soups are phenomenal and the salads are also good - I like the greek. The best part of Liberati's (besides the staff!) is the cookie platter. Especially since they have added a new coconut cookie that is encrusted in chocolate sprinkles. They need to put more of those on the tray or I may be driven to violence if someone gets to it before I do. Excellent food, great service and works beautifully for a busy office that has lots of people to feed on a weekly basis.
My cousin ended up picking up a family size lasagna for him, his wife, and I and we were all pleased with the end result. Good price for it all, and it was very well done.
The sandwiches are like no other! You can easily split a sandwich between two meals but it tastes so good you really don't want to eat just one half of the sandwich. They have a lot of things in the refrigerator cases that I keep meaning to try out like pizza. I'm going to add it to my to-do list for this year

Dix Coney Island

6565 Allen Rd
Allen Park, 48101
Reviews:
regional hot dogs a coney dog in Detroit delicious meat tube Today, I had a most delicious lunch for a grand total of $2.53. Being the big player that I am, I gave the waitress a five and told her to keep the change. Known as the "Coney Island Special", it consisted of a boiled hot dog topped with Coney sauce, mustard, and something called "loose beef". Impossible to eat without a fork and knife. And it was deeeee-lish! The small little obviously Greek diner has a nice menu, a cheerful waitress who also preps salads and such, low prices, and a decent bathroom. -Except for the plunger in the corner. That was kinda gross. Crinkle cut fries for excellent ketchup retention as well. I gotta say, that Coney Dog was yummy. Carry on.
Found this diner looking for breakfast. It's on the corner of a downtown busy road but good amount of parking. Service is fast and friendly for that little place. They were very busy on a Saturday, early afternoon. Very cheap and really good. Couldn't have asked for better at that price point. Small outdoor seating area, nicely shaded. It's a diner. Perfect for a quick stop with friendly faces and quick well-made food.
This place, while small, has some of the best dogs and greasy food you could ask for. Service is stellar and the place gives you that small town feel. The only drawback is that if you expect a seat during lunch time odds are you will have to wait. But that's a good sign right?

Moro’s Dining

6535 Allen Rd
Allen Park, 48101
Reviews:
Best Fettuccine alfredo ! This place is fine dining with excellent service, our waitor would come every two minutes cleaning up and pouring us water. I recommend the cheese ravioli and for dessert the ice cream brownie delight. The people who dine in are very soical and love to have a good laugh and thats what i like about this place.
For a very small restaurant tucked away in the downriver area, Moro's excels in very category. Outstanding soups, salad tossed table-side, quality entrees followed by a fruit and nut basket. DH had the surf and turf (which he did not offer to share). I went with one of their traditional entrees and brought most of it home for a second meal. Remember that it is not your local Olive Garden so please leave the jean shorts and ball caps at home.
Excellent service, and food great atmosphere. The walnuts and fruit was a great way to end a nice evening.

Best Asian food in my area. The food seems a lot fresher than other places I've been to. The Bento Box is great because you get a variety dishes. This is one of my favorite restaurants. I order from them often.
When I taste this food my wife has to pinch me, because i am dreaming of when I lived in China where I was a stunt man doing karate with Jackie chan! I really did that and if you don't believe me you can ask my wife. this food is so tasty, I got in on Saturday but I imagine it is great any day of the week! I think I'm getting hungry now..I better tell my wife to get out her pinchers!
I love this place! Only place near Dearborn with good Chinese food. My boyfriend is a very picky eater (he is Chinese too) and he always wants to come here. Love the Crab Rangoon! Also, love that the food are not too greasy!

Bella Pizza

6709 Park Ave
Allen Park, 48101
Reviews:
This is a family business and the people are always friendly which is hard to find these days. I have been going to this place for years. I have moved another 20 minutes away from where I used to live so I don't order it as much. This place also sells slices and if they have been sitting for a little while they have just game them to me for free before so I ended up buying a soda from them. They have many choices of Special pizzas that are worth a try (coney dog, peanutbutter and jelly and many more). I usually go with the small party tray pizza with double pepperoni that way the pizza is cooked perfectly and I really enjoy the type up pepperoni that they use as it curls up when cooking. I had ordered the large party tray pizza before and the middle dough wasn't perfect, I would suggest just ordering two small party tray pizzas they are perfect.
Just visiting the town for the first time in forty years. Choice of this place was based on Yelp. We got the meat supreme and it was great. Good service, nice people. Almost no dining area, so we ate on a bench at the corner. Nice neighborhood.
I first ordered the #2 special pizza with pepperoni & sausage & I would give it 5 stars for taste & I ordered it for delivery. I turned around and ordered the New York style pepperoni based on reviews a few day later with 24 wings, & the peanut butter & jelly pizza...I might have ordered too much, because the pizza quality & taste wasn't good. This is the first time I experience this with them everything is usually fresh, hot, & delicious so I was very surprised, but will order again, because I haven't had a lot of experiences such as that one.

Angelina’s Mexican Restaurant

8425 Allen Rd
Allen Park, 48101
Reviews:
i wanted to like this place because of the great reviews that they received. I even gave it 2 tries thinking maybe the first time was just a bad day. The salsa was way overpowered with cilantro, and I love Cilantro. My cheese enchiladas were still very cold in the middle (the cheese was still cold and shredded) as was that of my co-workers. Just was not as good as some of the other mexican restaurants around. Dont think I will go back.
Great food. Have had top notch service both times we have eaten here. The chips and salsa are yummy. Portions are large and the food is fantastic. Parking and seating or limited but well worth the wait.
Today they didn't get our order right! Food was great but not what we wanted. So I would suggest to go over delivery order again with them.
