At Diamond Brite Auto Detailing, cleaning crews restore cars of all shapes and sizes with interior and exterior detailing services. They hand-wash and wax surfaces, removing scratches and ridding tires of dirt and muck. On the inside, the team vacuums and steam-cleans carpets and upholstery, wipes down the dash before applying a vinyl protectant, and removes stork nests attached to the roof. Aside from auto detailing, Diamond Brite creates custom paint jobs for cars, repairs or replaces cracked windshields, and removes road paint and overspray. The garage can also detail cars while customers are at work with their free pickup and delivery service.

Helmed by a pair of local muscle-car enthusiasts, Apex Autosports restores freshly minted speedsters and tottering jalopies alike to their pinnacles of performance and aesthetics with a full range of services. During the 3–4-hour detailing, the Apex crew meticulously removes built-up grime and clouds of chrome-eating bats from every fender nook and door cranny with an exterior hand wash. Next, an interior detailing shampoos carpets and de-gunks surfaces so that moss-covered dashboards are once again distinguishable from fuzzy dice. To keep cars from falling apart during daily jaunts to the pet store for more whale food, an Apex mechanic will subject steel steeds to an exacting mechanical inspection that identifies issues before they pupate into problems. For optimal service, Apex recommends that customers drop off grungy autos the night before so technicians can start work immediately at 7 a.m. the next day.
Road dirt and grime fall away at the first touch of Full Service Car Wash’s soft cloths and liquid soaps. At any of its four locations, automatic tunnels lavish cars from roof to undercarriage with rust-preventing waxes, triple-coat paint shields, and clear-coat polysealants that rebuild the vehicle’s glossy and reflective finish. For more extensive auto care, they’ll shampoo the seats clean and machine polish the finish in the detailing center.
The Red Mill's extensive menu includes precisely grilled steaks and burgers, seafood, pasta, and a fish fry every Friday. It takes a mostly Euro-American angle, with hearty options such as spicy buffalo chicken and pot roast with mashed potatoes and onion strings. The eatery also riffs on classics such as mac ‘n’ cheese, which it dresses up in a more mature version that includes blue cheese, panko bread crumbs, and mix-ins such as bacon, chicken, or shrimp. On Friday, The Red Mill's fish fry sizzles cod, lake perch, and beer-battered coconut shrimp, and baked options allow diners to make a healthy choice without having to follow a strict diet of orange peels and nothing else.
