The primary goal of the husband-and-wife team behind Brannon Family Chiropractic is simple: to eliminate pain. Their expert treatments and adjustments are designed to ease the sort of spinal discomfort that can adversely affect quality of life, even when the pain isn't necessarily severe. After opening their first location, known as Eastland Chiropractic, the pair added the Brannon location in 2009, the better to meet their goal of subduing the region's aches one vertebra at a time. Today, Brannon Family Chiropractic is also home to the Serenity Massage Center—a tranquil space where licensed massage therapists work to release knots in backs, necks, shoulders, and Gordian shoelaces.

Named for its Michigan-style hot dogs, Detroit Coney Island combines Motown flavors with juicy meats to offer a menu stocked with burger-stand mainstays.

Detroit Coney Island also grills an array of burgers ($3.99+) and other bun-filling bites, with the giant fish sandwich ($5.99, $7.99 combo) satiating marine-loving stomachs with a pound of fried Alaskan pollock between two toasted buns. Diners can finish off hunger with one of Detroit Coney Island’s lip-smacking desserts, including root-beer floats, chewy brownies ($1.59), banana cream cake ($2.99), or baklava ($1.59).
Los Antojitos scintillates taste buds with a menu packed with authentic Mexican fare. Dining duos can kick-start their feasts by sharing nibbles of six garnachas or the ceviche tostada.
