This is by far the best pepperoni roll in the world. They are amazing. I am sure there are many other downriver folks will agree.
Affordable, large portions and taste pretty good. I was pleasantly surprised, they exceeded my expectations.
Absolutely the best in the area!! Pizza rolls are amazing and so worth the price!! I think they are still cash only though but worth the trip to the ATM... if you're in the area it's a must try!!! :)

I can't believe I lived in the area for 22 years and I have never eaten at this restaurant. Recently stopped in 2 weeks ago. Loved it. Good food friendly and good service. 3 visits since then
Nothing special at all. Came in based on the excellent reviews, but was not impressed. My family and I got breakfast, and my son was disappointed they didn't have waffles, but his pancakes were as good as any coney island would make. I got an omelette and the eggs were a little undercooked, but the portion was filling and the price was decent. My boyfriends omelette was filling and properly cooked but "not great." The bacon however was cooked perfectly. Service was ok because they were busy, and though the poor waitress never stopped running around, she was too busy too provide what I'd consider "good" service, like a coffee refill, or remembering we asked for ketchup, but again not her fault cuz they were packed. I really believe a lot of people think this place is awesome, and i actually have pretty low standards especially for local little diners cuz i love supporting the community. i plan on trying them again for lunch, but if it's not any better than breakfast it'll be my last visit. Pro's= fast, cheap, good portion Con's= minimally acceptable service, bland greasy food, kinda dirty interior (and not dirty in a quaint, local favorite diner kind of way. Dirty in a everything's covered in a film of years of grease that's never really been properly cleaned kind of way)
I love this place, great prices, great staff, great food. Rosie and Dimitra are great at taking care of the customers.

I should have wrote this review a long time ago. Pizza is without a doubt my favorite food, so I tend to be kind of critical. In some cases, different tastes of pizza can just be a matter of opinion- so to keep myself from being too critical, when I try a place for the first time, I always order only a cheese and pepperoni pizza. If someone can't get a cheese and pepperoni pizza right, what is the point in trying any of their other menu options? I ordered a large cheese and pepperoni- no frills. The pizza is fantastic. The sauce is yummy, the pepperoni is great quality, and the dough- the dough is better than I can even describe. I've since been back a few times since my initial order and have ordered other menu items and have always been satisfied. I plan to order from them for my next big event! Finally a pizza place downriver that really understands pizza!
After reading the reviews here on Yelp we thought we'd give it a try. Well, after spending $46.00 we have decided it wasn't worth the money. We ordered a LG Pep Pizza, small pep, green pepper and onion pizza, bread Sticks, Cheese Bread and Lasagna. The Lasagna was so/so tasted like it was getting old. The Pizza was a big Miss for us, and greasy. Now the Bread Sticks could have been great if maybe they served them some sauce and instead of Garlic Powder used Garlic Butter, they were soft but dry because it was just garlic powder and nothing else. I didn't bother trying the cheese bread, again came with NO Sauce and they didn't suggest any sauce either. Huge Miss for this Family! Too expensive!
Ordered a pizza and small salad at 4:30p and was told 45 minutes -- it took an hour. Not a big deal, but it's not exactly the dinner rush. Salad was a decent size, but 95% iceberg lettuce. No plastic cutlery. I asked the driver about it, he said "They usually pack it if you ask them". And here I am thinking, well, I explicitly told them it was a hotel + I ordered a salad. Calculus not necessary. Pizza was doughy, sauce forgettable, and -- as with any pizza that is delivered after an hour -- cold. Food: Average Service: Meh Another place with an unjustified yelp rating.

If you're downriver and have a craving for Mediterranean cuisine. Make sure you make your way over to this reataurant. It's been good back then when the shop was just a fraction of its size. Now that it's expanded like crazy,, It's still the best middle eastern restaurant here downriver. Actutually, lemme scratch that,,, the best middle eastern restaurant in MICHIGAN as far as I'm concerned. Every time I enter the premises to eat, they seems to never miss a beat. The bread is fresh, the garlic paste is extra potent and the tea is on point. The main events are also destructive. My main focus in a Middle Eastern joint is their Kibbe Nayee. It's how I put the restaurant to the test. Plus it defines the level of authenticity for me. Whenever I'm here, I always get their Libbey Nayee,, It's yummy, it's fresh and it's delish. IF you're not the adventurous type, Deboned chicken is where it's at. Please order this dish with the rice pilaf. Fries is an American thing. It's highly embarrassing when you're eating with someone who's passionate about their food. Their Lamb Kabob is very good as well. Lamb always has great flavor and the way they execute it is sublime. I been coming here for the last 10 years and will continue to come here til the end of time. This restaurant to me is the best of the best. The measuring stick for anything Middle Eastern. Life is short, stop eating boring food. Follow me on instagram and snapchat: rodtorres3 Weeeeeeeeeeee!
So much food! Entrees are good for two people with leftovers as well. The lemon chicken is good, the two kebabs and Kafta is good. Nothing can go wrong here. Been here 10+ times and it's always consistently good. Service is good, quick, friendly. They do a good amount of carry out also, but then you lose out on the unlimited pita bread. Show your triple AAA card for a discount, I think...
One of the best middle eastern restaurants in the Downriver area. I stopped in for lunch recently, and they were packed, despite that service was still quick. Not as speedy as it could have been, but good enough to not detract. I've been in here more than a dozen times and never had bad food. Prices are a bit higher than at some of the other area places, but for the most part the food here is better, so you get what you pay for. They use a soda machine for iced tea, it's not fresh brewed. That's my biggest and only real complaint. I'm particular about my tea. My only other small complaint is that I personally don't care for the hummos. It comes displayed beautifully, but it's a bit more bland than I would like. Others I've dined with have raved over it though, so that's more my taste profile than an actual complaint. The fresh made bread is fantastic and the garlic sauce is among the best I've ever had. Food portions are huge. The place is large, but the decor allows it to still feel a bit homey and it's in a great easy to access location. Bathrooms are always clean and there is plenty of parking in the front and rear of the building.

Reviews:
Not sure if it's a total five, but better than a four. Had a couple of beers, all very reasonably priced. Beer selection was good, 30+ taps. Menu was not huge, but what I had was very good. Sweaty pig, a pulled pork sandwich with spicy slaw was quite tasty. Service at the bar was great. Picnic table set up, which I think is great for meeting people which I like to do if I am out with others. Tried it due to reviews on Yelp on a short trip from Cleveland. Would stop in again if in the area.
Best burger in the downriver, PERIOD! They have a great foods and brews. I cannot complain at all and I would highly recommend to go there out as a date if a couple loves to drink and food!
I am not even much of a beer person and I really like it here. The sandwiches and specials with their German flair are right up my husband and my alley. In March we had some fantastic rouladen and some spaetzle with roast beef and gravy. I am damn picky about rouladen so i can assure you they know German food. It was also a Wednesday so they had wheat pints for 3 bucks. As that is my preferred beer type this made me one happy camper. They also serve Flannel Mouth so that makes me even happier. We have sampled the sweaty pig (pulled pork with spicy slaw), hamembert (ham, Camembert, raspberry jam and arugula) and Bierkeller grilled cheese (with sausage, kraut and grilled onions) sandwiches. All have been delightful. I even had a lemon dill salmon in here that was tasty. The service has been good. The atmosphere is laid back. No glitches. A good place to eat with quality beers to match, even if you are not a beer lightweight like me. We will continue to return.

This Culver's is tucked into the Southland shopping complex near the JC Penney's side. Food's fine, but the staff don't have much joy in being there.
The pot roast beef sandwich is good but it is plain. They need to add a bit of gravy or cheese or something. Very good chocolate custard. Also tried the root beer and cherry cheesecake mixer. Would go again.
I love Culver's. They have excellent burgers and their frozen custard is pretty on point. Get a Concrete Mixer with oreo and peanut butter mixed in. You will not be disappointed.

Reviews:
Very friendly service. I had the 5 whole wings and Fries for $6.99. The chicken was well seasoned and cooked perfectly. It would've been better if you could get two sides for the price but the quality made up for the cost.
I'm gonna go with 3 stars on this one. I've heard this place is good and have wanted to try it. I'm not a huge fried chicken fan but my boy loves it. So today I picked up my boys and of couse they're starving to death and neither ones palates is agreeing. The ten year old wanted Bk( ugggh) thirteen year old kfc ( ugggh) sooo in our course of direction Bk and Chickenman in the same stretch of road. So we tried it the teen got a 4 piece fried chicken dinner with double mashed taters. He liked it chicken tasted fresh ( I had a nibble) not processed more like homemade pretty good the mashed were totaly instants. Came with a roll. My son devoured it no surprise there, the human vacuum, but not really wanting to go back anytime soon. I got the mostaccioli with meatballs ehhh it was okay meatballs of the frozen variety.. not liking that, sauce just okay. I more then likely won't return. They do offer catering and as stated in my tip now offering tacos which intrigues me somewhat.. ehhh will see.
I happened to be in Taylor doing some charity work and not being familiar with surrounding eateries I went to Yelp and found The Chicken Man, Maybe I just had higher expectations given all of the 4 and 5 star reviews, but this place didn't wow me. I couldn't find any menus online so I couldn't order ahead as recommended. When I walked in I expected to perhaps see some lunch combos, but there was only representation for dinner meals. I asked about lunch and was provided a sheet that was kept behind the counter. She said to me, "I'll give you a minute to look at it and be right back", and walked into the back room and started cooking an order. After waiting for some time without her returning, I asked another gentleman in the store if this was the norm. He said it was, but also told me it was worth the wait. So, I waited. It took at least 10 minutes for her to return and take my order, and I think they only reason she came out was that another customer walked in and activated the door buzzer. I noticed on the menu that there were sides available such as slaw, potato salad, etc.. However the cooler that was supposed to house these items was completely empty. Oh well. I ordered the 4 piece tender and fries meal. Glad I had cash because there is a surcharge to use credit. Surprisingly there is a surcharge for debit too. The food came out hot and fresh. The fries were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside and the chicken was crunchy and not greasy, however the tenders were pretty small. Ever buy the little tenders in the frozen food section at the grocery store? That's what they looked like - almost as if it were a 1/2 tender. There are no dipping sauce options that I'm aware of. I had to ask for ketchup for the fries and then was given exactly 2 packets. It's not as though this place is bad. It just wasn't awesome. I would choose it over KFC, but I've been spoiled with Lee's Chicken in Plymouth which is near to my home. The Chicken Man isn't even close to on par with that joint.

I've ordered from here many times, as it is the closest pizza place to where I live. The workers are always friendly and helpful, especially if you're not sure what you want, and they always provide their own insightful recommendations. I typically get the $10 large deep dish with flavored crust. They have online ordering too, but I usually just order in person since it takes around 10 minutes to get your order when placed. I've never had any problems with this location, and it's my preferred pizza place in SE Taylor. I got a free pizza last time since the one they made had a small bubble in one of the slices, so they made me a new one and gave me both with an actual apology for my wait.

They are fast, and polite! Came in with my dad to pick up a pizza for dinner, and it was delicious. Bring this crew more business! They deserve their tips!
Food is always great, and delivery is always lightening fast. Usually within 20 Minutes or so. I subtracted one star only because, like a lot of pizza places, they have a standard delivery charge, that they say that doesn't go to the drivers as a tip, so you still feel obligated to tip the drivers when they get there. Getting your pizza delivered can easily add 6 or 7 bucks to your total once you add in delivery charge and drivers tip. I realize HH isn't the only pizza company to do this, but it's still not right because the drivers are still driving their own cars, so as far as I can tell the delivery charge is just straight profit to the pizza company. I'm sure if there was no delivery charge, more people would tip the drivers properly.

This is a standard Subway, so there's not much to say about it. But, I've been here several times and have never been disappointed. The food is fresh; the service is quick and friendly; and the store is clean. The workers are always enthusiastic. Last time I went in there, I was stuck behind a guy who ordered 5 foot-long subs, and of course, I was grimacing (especially since I let him go in front of me since I wasn't ready). The two workers were incredibly swift, and I was still served within a few minutes.
