A Detroit tradition, Buddy's Pizzeria has grown from a little-known bar and pizza joint to an institution. There are now Buddy's outlets in multiple suburbs, but the authentic experience is at the original, crowded, multi-roomed eatery. Buddy's-which operated as an after-hours blind pig (a place that sells alcohol illegally) when it first opened in 1936-was the first spot in Detroit to offer Sicilian-style deep dish pizza, in 1946. The pizza is thick and filling and comes with plenty of cheese and sauce, and it is repeatedly voted the best in Detroit in local surveys. Salads, pastas, burgers, sandwiches and homemade soups are also on the menu. There is always a bustling party atmosphere. There's even a small area attached where locals play bocce ball, the Italian game of lawn bowling.
Big portions, a casual setting and a friendly staff characterize this Mexican restaurant in the heart of Royal Oak. The dishes are predictable but tasty, like quesadillas, enchiladas, burritos and tacos with lots of spicy rice and refried beans.

This storefront restaurant in fashionably funky Ferndale has the feel of an Italian restaurant from the 1950s, complete with candles burning in Chianti bottles, and the food is as tasty and filling as you thought it would be. The breaded veal with sauteed shrimp, breast of chicken and eggplant with prosciutto in a rich tomato sauce are among the favorites, all accompanied by a garlic bread that draws high praise. The pizza is also popular, and the house wines are homemade.

A whole new approach to dining, Mongolian Barbeque gives you no one to blame for a bad meal except yourself. Diners select their own meats, stir-fry vegetables, sauces and spices.

The stir-fries are served with tortillas and rice, and a huge salad and soup bar are also available. This adventurous approach to dining has become enormously popular. The Royal Oak eatery is the flagship of an empire that has expanded to 22 locations in seven states.
