(Food) Stops between Chicago and Detroit?

elvinc | Jan 27, 200808:24 AM

I've tried my best to do some web research and catch up on some old threads, but I think it's time to put this back out here in 2008 and formally gather some new opinions. I'm posting here in Midwest...but I'll see whether a repost in Chicago would be allowed/or be productive.

We regularly make the trip to Detroit for family and we're wondering what are notable stops along the way. We usually take the Skyway then I-94.

Fast food of note is acceptable and stop-worthy table service affairs welcome. Other food related or simply interesting stops can be included too.

Here's are familiars:
- Culver's is our usual easy choice since back when they were not as common in Michigan and are still in the Chicago 'burbs
- Jackson's Fruit Stand in Sawyer. It's been a while since we've stopped, but for sure next time
- Grandpa's Cider Mill - a new stop near Coloma (exit 39). Stopped in before Christmas. Would expect it to feel different in fruit season.

I was messing around with iWeb and built a quick blog to organize the tips and update them for the future. http://web.mac.com/elvinc/Food_Stops/. I may move it however to Blogger or Wordpress down the line.

If there's a better place to dig up this kind of info, let me know. Thx.
