Try looking up Best New Detroit Restaurants from Eater to stay even more up to date.
When this place first opened it was really overhyped and waiting times would be hours long. The hype has kind of died down, I don't think it's the absolute best BBQ I've had but I still think it is a Detroit essential.

If you want to get away from the more touristy restaurants in Mexicantown, I would recommend this place where many locals go. They are known for their smoked and seasoned chicken; you can see and smell the smoke from the outdoor kitchen wafting down the street.

A local watering hole that has some great music/dance parties. There is a small grill inside that serves unique hot dogs with vegan options. This place recently reopened after a true David vs Goliath situation. None of the buildings surrounding the bar were there a couple years ago but when they were being built, construction workers cracked the side of the UFO Factory "accidentally", nearly knocking a whole exterior brick wall down. It was more widely known that the developers wanted the land and were most likely trying to put the local favorite out of business so it could be torn down and built on. UFO fought back and won millions of dollars in a settlement and reopened after being closed for a year.

Oh, the iconic abandoned Michigan Central Station. Back when I was younger there were secret ways to get inside, but since then they have beefed up security and I would urge you not to try and get in because it is much easier to get caught. Nowadays, people just hang out front in Roosevelt Park and take pictures. More recently, Ford Motor company did what evening thought somebody night do eventually, and bought the giant building and is in the process spending millions of dollars fixing it up to be used once again.

Our house is situated on the western fringe of Woodbridge which is another historical neighborhood that has held stable through the rough years. Walk around the blocks towards the northeast and southeast to see some old Victorian houses with lots of character. This includes the Lorax house at 4759 Trumbull Ave, The House from Up at 4722 Avery St, and many others. Even Tony Hawk recently bought a house off Tumbull! Don't venture west of Grand River Avenue though, that is the border of our neighborhood and things can get rough pretty quick in Core City neighborhood.

Walk around the blocks towards the northeast and southeast to see some old Victorian houses with lots of character. This includes the Lorax house at 4759 Trumbull Ave, The House from Up at 4722 Avery St, and many others. Even Tony Hawk recently bought a house off Tumbull! Don't venture west of Grand River Avenue though, that is the border of our neighborhood and things can get rough pretty quick in Core City neighborhood.
One of the historic neighborhoods that have anchored Detroit real estate through some rough times, just take a drive through this neighborhood and revel at some amazing mansions

The last game ever played in the stadium was in 1999. Go see what is left of the grounds which is basically just a flag pole. It is currently in the process of being turned into a neighborhood ballpark.

Expanding and improving every year, the Riverwalk is happening in the summer. It features great views, fishing, parks and food, it will eventually connect Downtown to Belle Isle but is about 3/4 there at the moment.

A hidden gem in Detroit. There is an aquarium and conservatory, but this entire island is a big park where you can bike or have a picnic. You can also rent kayaks, play racquetball and other funtivities. There are beaches to swim as well. You will get one of the best views of Detroit, the Ambassador Bridge and Windsor from the west side of the Island.

If you happen to be visiting on a full moon, you may have the chance to experience a Full Moon Party at the Art Park. During the warmed seasons, they have huge parties with hundreds of people in a truly Detroit fashion that last until daybreak. There is usually a bonfire, music, and art sculptures, including a giant metal globe overlooking the park that shoots fire. You can visit the park during the day and look at the graffiti and sculptures made out of random junk but if you happen to be in town for the monthly full moon, you must try to attend one of the Full Moon Parties. It is really a unique Detroit experience.

So, this place is somewhat pricey for a grocer, but it is either this or drive to Dearborn to go to Meijer/Kroger/Walmart or pay way too much at Whole Foods.
