Authentic experience. Long wood tables shared by more than one party, Many alcoholic beverage to choose from - I tried a simple apple cider. It had a nice flavor - strong apple wine taste. They served pickles, and two pickled boiled eggs (pink) as appetizers. We also had some complimentary fresh bread (dinner rolls, cornbread muffin and blueberry muffin) with butter and jam. The muffins were quite good. We had chicken fricasse with red potatoes and green beans and a beef stew/pie. The chicken fricasse had a great creamy sauce and the biscuits were soft and fresh. The vegetables were fresh and lightly, but nicely seasoned. The beef pot pie was also nice, a decent home cooked beef stew with a piece of pie crust placed on top. The desserts looked nice, (but we had no room to try them). The wait-staff dressed and stayed in character and had some extra conversations with us that might be expected if we were travelers visiting their establishiment 150 years ago. It was not a super special meal or experience, but it was good and I could recommend it. The straws are made of pasta and no salt shakers, they show you why the fork has a curve in the handle to dip it out of a bowl,, how cool.
Favorite Dish: http://www.thehenryford.org/village/eaglemenu.aspx You just gotta check out the menu
This is a restaurant that specializes in one American food.... the hamburger.
The ones made here have a unique taste because of the special sauce and the additives in the beef. Every burger is made to order when you ask for it and not before.
The french fries are long and crispy and never greasy (you salt them to your taste).
Onion rings have a melt-in-your-mouth coating that has a bit of chicken-fingers flavor to them.
Counter-service; friendly smile; plain decor; nice wide booths; everything very clean (even the bathrooms).
People travel far to enjoy these one-of-a-kind burgers.
See you there.
Cheli's is owned by the Detroit Red Wings' very own Chris Chelios, in the heart of downtown west Dearborn. TV's, hockey paraphenalia, and photos and jerseys from Chris Chelios' hockey career adorn the walls of this two-room restaurant/bar. There is a rooftop patio that becomes very populer during happy hour. Cheli's also has a gift shop where they sell souvenirs as well as frozen Cheli's Chili.
Favorite Dish: Cheli's is tavern fare, most popular for it's chili dishes. You can order chili in different styles with different toppings, either in a bowl or a cup. Potato skins are huge, in a dish of 4 and you can make a meal of the nachos, they're so plentiful!
Any possible type of salad you could imagine is served here, in great portions that you most likely will be taking home in a doggy bag!
Favorite Dish: Believe it or not, the Taco Salad is my favorite! This is more of a middle eastern type restaurant, but the cooks and staff are very talented in multiple types of cuisine! Try whatever you can, and you will NOT be disappointed!
This is actually a sushi bar, however you may get additional dishes as well. Very pricey but well worth it, the food, staff, service, cocktails, decor and music are a wonderful experience. I went for my birthday this year and enjoyed every minute of it.
Favorite Dish: I love the Atlantic Sake (salmon), it's grilled in a teriyaki sauce and garnished with rice and asparagus. The rangoon appetizers are great as well and you MUST try one of their many flavored martinis.
I am not quite sure how to categorize the cuisine of Mongolian BBQ other than excellent! It combines asian stir fry, italian pasta, and spanish tortillas for one interestingly appetizing meal!
Each patron is given a small porcelain mixing bowl. You then make your way through a buffet type line filling your bowl with fresh meats and seafood, vegetables, spices, sauces and pastas. At the end of the buffet is a large round skillet type surface, about 8 feet in diameter with 6-8 chefs around it, singing, chanting and joking with customers. These chefs cook your food right there to your specifications!
After your food is prepared, and make way back to your table, the waiter will bring hot rice and tortillas. You then fill a tortilla with rice, and your freshly prepared stir fry! Provided you have a light knowledge of sauces and spices, this can be one of the best meals you have ever had, just be sure not to over do it with the cayanne pepper or onion!
Beer and wines, and mixed drinks are also available.
Favorite Dish: I like to combine beef with broccoli, mushrooms, spiral pasta, a few onions, a tad garlic, cracked black pepper, soy sauce, a tad sesame oil, and various spices. You can try several different combos throughout the evening. $12.99 ALL YOU CAN EAT!
Bangkok Star offers authentic Thai food, some of the best I have ever had. I would best describe Thai as similar to Chinese with a hot and spicy twist! While the menu states the cuisine is available in mild, medium and hot, it would better be described as hot, hotter and hottest! If you do not like asian food or spicy food, this is not the place for you.
No reservation is needed. Casual attire.
Favorite Dish: I enjoy combo #15, Beef and Broccoli ordered medium spice. It is similar to Chop Suey, but "kicked up a notch". Served with rice. My dad recommends Colonel Tso's Chicken Hot (By hot, I mean nearly impossible to choke down!)
New Yasmeen Bakery has the best lebanese food in the area! Authentic market/bakery type atmosphere. Menu available on website.

Favorite Dish: I LOVE their cheesebread and their authentic pita bread and hommous! My dad says they have the best Kibbee around.
La Shish elegantly serves up authentic middle eastern cuisine! There are several locations throughout the Detroit metro area.
Favorite Dish: Their signature dish is the Shishkabob made with either lamb or beef with fresh grilled vegetables. I really enjoy Hommous, a blend of chick peas, garlic and sesame oil spread on pita bread!
American food is available if your companion isn't into exotic cuisine.
Menu available on the website.
