From its humble beginnings in Kankakee, Illinois, in 1938, Dairy Queen has grown from a delicious experiment in soft-serve ice cream to a household name with more than 5,900 restaurants around the world. The shop's signature frozen delights are built upon a frosty foundation of creamy chocolate or vanilla soft serve, which swirls idyllically into cones, cups, overturned top hats, sundaes, Peanut Buster parfaits, and the chain's iconic Blizzard treats, blended with crumbled candy and other mix-ins. Ice-cream cakes cleverly conceal a surprise filling of fudge and chocolate crunch between layers of vanilla and chocolate ice cream, providing sweet, sliceable sustenance for birthday parties and other special occasions.

Fruit rules the roost on the other side of the slushy emporium, where Orange Julius blends its signature frothy drinks crafted from fruit juice, ice, and a "magic” powdered sweetener that explains why they disappear from most customers’ cups minutes after the first delicious sip. Real fruit purée forms the basis for the shop's smoothies, which also come in diet-friendly light versions that boast 150 calories or fewer.

Every guest who steps into Kalamata Greek Grill smells it—the warm, comforting aroma of freshly baked pita bread. Made from a closely guarded recipe—the one thing Caesar saved before burning down the Library of Alexandria—pitas serve as the foundation of Kalamata's made-to-order Greek cuisine. Chefs line the pocketed bread in full view of customers, stuffing it with ingredients such as steamy gyro meat and each guest’s choice of toppings. They can also make house-style pitas, such as the Greek Cowboy, which includes green pepper, red onion, and greek barbecue sauce. The dining room invites patrons to relax under its latticework ceiling, and the patio offers alfresco seating. Kalamata's combination of fresh Greek food and a welcoming atmosphere—plus its enthusiasm for helping out with fundraisers—has won it Best Greek Restaurant from 2009 to 2012 in WDIV's Vote 4 The Best awards.

Named one of Detroit CityVoters’ top five finalists for Best Indian Restaurant in 2012, Priya Indian Cuisine serves a vast menu of dishes crafted from beloved recipes from across India. Skilled chefs prepare each signature regional dish according to centuries-long traditions, showcasing the smoky, tandoor-cooked meats and unleavened breads of Northern Indian tradition as well as Southern India’s distinctive blends of spices and flavorful sauces. The culinary crew can also be found fueling the kebab-filled clay tandoor oven with charcoal and wood or whipping up rice-based pulaos and biryanis native to the southern city of Hyderabad. To complement the meat-focused dishes, the chefs forge a variety of meatless dishes featuring fresh, housemade paneer to sate the appetites of vegetarians. Eaters can chow down amid the regal dining room’s rich-purple linens, palm trees, and Indian statues or break bread.

The pizza industry can be a crowded kitchen; it's tough for any particular pie to stand out above the field. But don't tell that to Shield's Pizza. Founded in Detroit in 1937, Shield's quickly gained a following for the pizza that remains its signature item: deep-dish pies, served in square-shaped portions. The restaurant has followed the same recipes and techniques since its inception by making the dough fresh daily, using fresh meat and produce for toppings, and loading up pies with layers of Wisconsin cheese. Mindful of the way appetites have evolved in the last half-century, they also craft hand-tossed, round gluten-free and multi-grain pizzas in addition to its traditional crust.

Shield's menu also extends beyond its pizza perfection. Homemade soup, pasta, burgers, ribs, and sandwiches offer savory alternatives, as well as appetizers such as nachos and buffalo wings. Pours of draft beer help wash down bites or scrub pizza sauce out of your silk ascot.

Fresh Mediterranean feasts unfold beneath the crystal-touched gold chandeliers of a cream-colored dining room as chefs in the kitchen blend chickpeas, fava beans, and fresh herbs to forge housemade falafel. These flavor gurus then sauté lemon chicken with oregano and garlic as well as stuff chicken kafta sandweechet with tomatoes and garlic sauce before grilling them both panini-style. After enjoying the chefs’ creations, diners can enjoy a sweet slice of baklava as they linger in the dining room to watch TV or practice coquettish eyebrow lifts in the large mirrors framed in rustic wood.

Cedar Grille's staffers can also pack up dishes for takeout. To satisfy their fans' demands, they also bottle up their housemade fattoush salad dressing for customers to take home. Customers sometimes stop in just for one of the raw blends, such as the energy booster packed with carrots, apples, and parsley or a smoothie with strawberry, banana, and honey.

Describing the cuisine at Recipes depends entirely on the time of day. When its doors open at 7 a.m., it's a classic breakfast joint with everything from biscuits coated in blackberry sauce to made-to-order meat and veggie skillets. Fixings like water chestnuts and chorizo crown the open-faced omelets, while crabmeat tops the eggs benedict smothered with housemade hollandaise.

But breakfast isn't the only reason Recipes has earned raves from publications like Detroit Free Press and USA Today. At lunch, Recipes takes on timeless delicatessen flavors by slapping smoked turkey and muenster cheese on rye and topping spicy grilled chicken with signature salsa. By night, the eatery focuses on Eastern flavors with several Thai-style entrees, including rice vermicelli tossed with marinated grilled pork and vampire-proofed with sweet garlic sauce.
