This post is a little different than my normal post so I hope you like it. I was at my son’s high school swim meet in Lapeer and after the meet ended we went out to get something to eat. We skipped the usual fast food places near the expressway and went to downtown Lapeer. I can’t pass up the chance to get a good burger so we ate at the Old Detroit Burger Bar. We sat down and they said they had coke on tap and I can’t have caffeine at night so I ordered a root beer and the waitress brought out a can of Faygo rootbeer. I said to her” Wow Faygo, does that mean you have a can of redpop too.” “yes” she replied. I knew I was in the right place when Detroit is in the name and they have Faygo. We ordered burgers and after a few minutes of looking at the old photos of Detroit on the walls and listening to old school blues music the waitress brought out these enormous burgers. The top bun was branded with the bars logo and for good reason. They are proud to serve the burgers they make. They were some of the best burgers I have eaten. I don’t really do restaurant reviews but sometimes I find a place that really impresses me. I really admire them for being a local burger joint and serving local food. I think if you are going to have a restaurant in Michigan you should support Michigan companies like Faygo, Kogels Better Made Chips or any other supplier from Michigan. If you are in southeast Michigan check out the Old Detroit Burger Bar there are 7 different locations. Here is a link to their website.
P.S. I don’t plan on doing a food blog. Thank for taking a quick break with me, now it’s time to get back on the road and see what I can find.
