We recently hosted a party at Sidetrack/Frenchies, expecting up to 100 guests. Our initial contact with the co-owner was 3 months prior to the event. The week of the party I gave them my best-estimate at 80 expected to attend, which they thought best to bump to 85. Our actual turned out to be 76. Over the phone numerous times... More

The food was good but nothing outstanding. I can get a good burger in several places. Service was poor. If I came back in town, I might try this place again.

We've enjoyed the top-notch burgers and drinks here, but recently had a great experience with a private party in one of their side rooms. The appetizers and drinks were perfect. Great quality. And we experienced some of the best service from the wait staff. We never had to wait for ANYTHING we needed. Very impressed. We will defintely return.

We ate here while attending the Camaro Superfest. I really enjoyed the building itself, it has a lot of character. Our server was excellent. We really liked the food. Especially the fried zucchini. There isn't a kids menu, but our son loved the mac and cheese. The desserts are enough for 4 people. I would recommend stopping by for sure.

This is a great place to grab a bite to eat and hang out with friends. They have a pretty large menu and between our group we were able to try a few different things. Everything tasted great and the service is excellent. I've been here twice and both times the place was packed. The only downside is the size... More

Even though it was out of our way, we followed the tip of a local and ate at Sidetrack. So worth it! My son had a big burger, I had the turkey sliders (aka, thanksgiving on a bun). We both had the sweet potato fries and fried pickles. Super food! Super service! Great atmosphere! We'll return & next time I'm... More

Sidetracks is always a great place to go and enjoy a quick bite or a full meal with friends. I enjoy the variety although I tend to stick to a few of my favorites including the really incredible friend mushroom appetizer. There is also a great variety of beers on tap. The additional space has helped relieve the congestion a... More

The food and atmosphere here is fantastic. It's intimate yet has a funky fresh vibe. Only thing I've ever personally eaten here is a burger on a gluten free bun. Best burgers around and the gluten free bun, while a bit crumbly, are never hard or stale. The sweet potato fries are unique and served with a horseradish sauce that... More

Been driving all day, breakfast was a couple of tanks of gas ago, we were on the far side of a tad peckish, and here sufficed well. Its simple, fare burgers, sandwiches, dips, if there is tex mex then is a sort of Michigan Mex ,where chillies go Lutheran; and the guacamole is called avocado dip, and why not? The... More

Ypsilanti's signature restaurant. Has all the history and charm and now being consistently improved with added space and new rooms which work pleasantly with the past. Classic menu which changes little; can never go wrong with the burgers and their salads are huge, hearty and a lovely surprise. Excellent bar and beers galore. The Frenches do a great hands-on ownership... More
