    Excellent food. My favorite is the veggie eastsider. The atmosphere is great too, if you're looking for a bar that isn't fully action packed, but still able to enjoy yourself and have a good time.

    Kitchen is open until 2am every night. The Turkey Reuben is good. For late night breakfast, The Special (pictured) is the way to go!

    Classic Midtown. The food is fantastic. The jukebox is always playing just what you need at THAT moment. POCKET OF JOY sandwich. Veggie Chili.

    Does Honest John's have the best burger in town? You'll have to go sample it yourself to make that call. We'll just leave it at a maybe. [Eater 38 Member]

    What can you say about a place like Honest Johns? It is like CNN, in that it is always on. They've got breakfast, lunch and dinner. Early, late, all day! Super late! But No, it's not HBO.

    Get the chicken and waffles with wings instead of the tenders! Delicious food, but we were also starving because of the long wait.

    Jordan is the bestttttt. He was so nice and welcoming to everyone that came in. Definitely asking for him again and again!

    Even though John doesn't own the place anymore, still a Detroit classic. Can't go wrong. Simple, un-fancy, Motor City real talk.

    THE best juke in all of Detroit. Good food, kitchen open until 2am daily, friendly staff, cold beer. but watch out: no photos (of any kind) allowed. Ask why -- good backstory.

    Turkey Club on rye is legit. Add a side of fries or onion rings (preferred) to complete you meal.

    Big O omelet with feta instead of Swiss and add turkey sausage. Wash it down with an Oberon.

    Be hip or be invisible I guess. Sat at the bar had to wave the bartender down. She seemed annoyed and it was downhill from there. Left after 1 drink, went in for brunch.
