Whenever we travel we try to check out a 3D's restaurant. So as we entered Michigan we checked out 'flavortown' on the web to find a restaurant. Mapped us to Ferndale. Right on the main drag. Waited about 20 minutes, but hey, we traveled over 5 hours to get here - what is 20 minutes. We sat at the counter.... More

Nearly 400 reviews on Yelp and almost a perfect 5.0? That should tell you something! And yes, it really IS that good. Ah, you say, what makes it any different than other breakfast and lunch places. Ha. I'll tell you why. It's THE FOOD!!! It is spectacular!! Man, such a great menu. I wanted one of everything. Maybe I'll achieve... More

Sorry, but meeting five other folks on a sunday noonish meal and an almost hour wait does not deserve more than 3 stars. And lack of seating resulting in two eating at counter, and two separate tables for other four in group does not make a pleasant eating experience. Add to that, during the wait,there was some restaurant rage when... More

Please visit the Fly Trap and order the Red Flannel Hash, its my favorite breakfast dish on earth! The portion sizes are huge, don't be afraid to share with a friend if you can.

Interesting and enjoyable place. Great, unique food. A very small place, with limited seating, so expect a wait. But the wait is worth it. The green eggs and ham were excellent, as were the homemade hot sauces. Worth a trip if you are in the area.

Fortunately, my daughter and I noticed the large portions so decided to share an order. We had an omelette but not your typical kind of omelette - this was a stuffed omelette so really just a shell of an omelette (vs a way too big 3 egg full blown omelette) over the fillings - it was perfect! Very interesting idea.... More

I stopped in to try this place out. I saw it on one of food shows I watch. I ordered the BLAT or Bacon lettuce avocado tomato. It was ok but is there something else that I should have ordered?

Had the "boring breakfast" as they called it but it was anything but boring. Two over easy eggs cooked perfectly, incredibly seasoned breakfast potatoes and great bacon. It is worth the inevitable wait but they get you in and on the way quickly. It is a colorful clientele and service staff.

I had a terrific salmon burger at the Fly Trap on the recommendation of a friend. It was perfectly seasoned and cooked. It is crowded and hard to get a table but worth the wait. I've only been there once but have been trying to get my mom to go with me for the salmon burger. I think she'd love... More

Every time I visit Detroit, I go in for the Pho! The service is always good no matter how busy and the food is always great!
