Bars in Dearborn:

Jim's Place

Address:
‪13245 Michigan Ave
Dearborn, MI 48126
Phone:
(313) 584-5437
While the name seems pretty standard, Jim's place is anything but. Specializing in Polish/American dining, some of their classics are the kielbasa omelette and the dill pickle soup. The Polish Combo with kielbasas and stuffed cabbage is good enough to take an extra order home with you, especially given the price. And the pierogis are amazing — they're incredibly fresh, doughy and stuffed with filling. With their food and the patriotic decor and very amicable staff, I promise you'll be coming back for more.

Al Ameers

Address:
12710 West Warren Avenue
Dearborn, MI 48126
Phone:
(313) 582-8185
Being the Middle-Eastern capital of America, Dearborn is full of run-of-the-mill Middle-Eastern restaurants. But the one that sticks out the best in my mind is Al Ameer. I love the Chicken Kafta; it has just the right amount of spices, not too overwhelming, and it's super juicy. If you're turned of by kafta, which I was at one point, Al Ameer's Chicken Kafta is enough to convince you otherwise. And the portions are gigantic! The plates are big enough as it is, but they pile it high with food. Also be sure to check out their raw juice menu.

The Eagle Tavern

Address:
20900 Oakwood Blvd
Dearborn, MI 48124
Phone:
(313) 982-6001
The Eagle Tavern is a great Americana restaurant in the heart of Historic Greenfield Village. The decor is pretty traditional, though it leans more towards upscale. Now for the food. While it's nothing exotic, it's definitely top-notch. The corned beef and cabbage with potatoes and carrots is mouthwatering. All the items are tender, juicy and seasoned to perfection. Best of all, the food is all locale-sourced, so the menu stays fresh and varies from season to season. It's definitely family-friendly, but it does have a full bar with standard drink option.

M&M Cafe

Address:
‪13714 Michigan Ave
Dearborn, MI 48126
Phone:
(313) 581-5775
Before getting started, I have to stay that their lemon chicken with rice pilaf is mushrooms is almost too good to handle. The food all tastes so good together, and the chicken is perfect, not too dry, and not too juicy to where you feel like it's still raw. This is the kind of food they do best at M&M: traditional dinner choices with just a certain kick of spice and creativity. The decor is what you would expect from a typical diner: open, spacious and very clean. In all, this restaurant has the perfect mix of everything it needs to be one of Dearborn's best.

Cedarland Restaurant

Address:
13007 W Warren Ave
Dearborn, MI 48126
Phone:
(313) 582-4849
Outside of their food, Cederland has a great staff and management. Before you even begin eating, they seat you with hummus and garlic spread, and once the food comes they serve you pickled turnips and lentil soup — for free! The best dish in the house is their specialty, the Cedar Plate, with enough shish kabobs, kaftans, tawooks, grape leaves, chicken (and a few other things) to feed up to 10 people. For a larger group, go with the family size. It's enough to feed 15-20 people, and it's great for bringing the table together over the same meal.

Mati's Deli

Address:
‪1842 Monroe St‬
Dearborn, MI 48124
Phone:
(313) 277-3253
Mati's is a perfect stop for a fulfilling lunch. With all their sandwiches being under $10, I don't understand how they make a profit given how huge they are. The crowd favorite here is definitely the corned beef, although I always go for Carol's Temptation, basically a Rueben with coleslaw and turkey. The rye bread is what puts this sandwich together. It's a perfect complement to the mild taste of the turkey and coleslaw. They close in the early afternoon, so either call in carry out or order online, because this place is PACKED before they close.
