DeAngelo's Soul Food, Deli, and More anchors its menu with the South’s trademark: fried food. Chicken and waffles, southern-fried catfish, and jumbo fried shrimp all hide under coats of flaky golden brown, much like soldiers wearing breaded armor. Chicken and pork chops can be fried, grilled, or smothered. Some deli sandwiches are stuffed with similar fixings—such as barbecue ribs and catfish—but others sport more traditional meats, including corned beef and turkey. Paired with hearty cornbread dressing, mac 'n' cheese, or mashed potatoes, the comfort foods become full-fledged meals.

From sun up 'til sundown, El Burrito’s chefs are busy recreating Mexican classics. Chorizo and eggs tuck into tacos during morning hours, while the shells fill with chicken and steak during the afternoon. Tortillas are the mainstay of most dishes, serving as the base for bean and rice burritos, deep-fried chimichangas, and gooey cheese- and chicken-stuffed quesadillas. The chefs know that no meal is complete without dessert, and they sate any sweet tooth with pecan rolls, Mexican wedding cookies, and empanadas.
Though inspired by the northern California cafés of the early 1980s, Espresso Royale fits right in with Michigan’s modern coffee drinkers—in 2014 readers of The Michigan Daily voted it Best Coffee Shop for the fifth year in a row. Their coffees include a house blend developed in 1987, which has since been joined by a seasonally appropriate autumn spice blend and a southern Italian-style espresso called Napoli. Royale's customers also clamor to the counter for favorites such as raspberry mochas, mint hot chocolates, and ginger dragon, a tea layered with fresh lemon and steeped ginger root that can be served iced or heated by a dragon named Ginger.
A lengthy lineup of traditional game-day fare and a sports atmosphere captivate fans at Fox and Hound - Bailey's, where the kitchen remains open as late as its neighboring fully stocked bar. Chefs cook until the wee hours of the morning and always until the bar closes, baking Bavarian pretzel starters, crafting towers of onion rings, and preparing hand-battered chicken tenders that are cooked until they are golden brown. They blend their own seasonings to sprinkle over grilled-to-order burgers, and draw from a diverse roster of cheeses and toppings to crown their wood-oven-inspired flatbreads.
While manning the bars, bartenders tap into a stash of libations, such as UV Whipped vodka and Patron Silver tequila, to mix their specialty cocktails. To further foster a sporting ambiance, high-definition TVs glow with sports games and custom music-video playlists, and guests partake in pastimes of ump bashing, billiards, or competitive people watching.
At Bigg Burger, you won't find warmers keeping buns hot or freezers chilling meat into flavorless blocks. That's because each burger, breakfast sandwich, and side of fries is made with fresh ingredients that are delivered daily rather than retrieved from a time capsule. Chefs cut each crispy, salty french fry by hand, and grill up hearty burgers made only with certified Black Angus beef. Tasty sides include housemade chili and sweet, creamy milkshakes.
