Auburn Cafe

3520 W Jefferson Ave
Ecorse MI 48229
Auburn Cafe in Ecorse is rumored to have the very best Greek food in the Downriver area, and though we've enjoyed a lot of great Greek and Mediterranean fare around here, we are very tempted to believe that rumor! It really is fantastic. The service is really superb, and we love the fact that you can get such great Greek fare so close to home without having to haul yourself down to Greektown in the middle of the week at those random times when cravings hit! Very friendly owners as well, and we always enjoy shooting the breeze with them. Good times and good food, always!

The Shrimp Hut

409 Visger Rd
Ecorse MI 48229
The Shrimp Hut, believe it or not, has been going strong in this very same location since at least the 60s from what we have heard. Talk about an institution! We always make sure to stop in for some delicious battered fish, shrimp, and chicken whenever we are there. You will not believe the authentic southern style of the food here, and the friendly service definitely makes it even better. The fact that they use peanut oil really makes a difference with the flavor and the quality, and that cuts back on the greasiness, giving you all the crispness that you love without that oil slick effect! Great fries here too. Yum!

Detroit Coney Island

2626 S Schaefer Hwy
Detroit MI 48217
Detroit Coney Island is one of the backbones of this area as far as food goes – they've been around almost forever, and it's just such a reliable place to get all your coney island favorites. There's a drive thru too, so you can pick up your favorites even late into the evening with ease. The fish sandwiches are to die for, as are the coney dogs, of course! The chili cheese fries are also just so mouth wateringly good, and they have come highly recommended by everyone that we know! Truly always a great place to go whether you're visiting River Rouge, Ecorse, or nearby Wyandotte or Lincoln Park!

River Rouge Bar & Grill

150 E Great Lakes St
River Rouge MI 48218
If you're looking for a cool and laid back dive bar to throw back a few shots or maybe a couple of beers, River Rouge Bar & Grill is your spot when you're in this area. It's located on E Great Lakes St, conveniently in the middle of it all yet off the beaten path of West Jefferson, and we find that it's always worth it to stop in when we are in the area. Friendly service, old fashioned vibe, nice folks enjoying their drinks and some conversation... it's always a pleasant time here and we have never seen any fights or bad behavior while we were there. Super cheap drinks too! Always a favorite.

The Brown Derby Bar

10661 W Jefferson Ave
River Rouge MI 48218
The Brown Derby Bar is another one of our favorite dive bars in River Rouge. We love the old fashioned ambiance here, but what really keeps our customers coming back time and time again for more when they're traveling on the party bus is the cheap drinks! Of course you'll be enjoying drinks on the bus too, so that saves you even more money. But yes indeed, The Brown Derby is a great place to get your drink on and to enjoy some good conversation with your friends. Very laid back, just one of those cozy hometown spots that doesn't try too hard so you don't have to either. Definitely worth a mention.
