Been eating here for years. Everything is fresh and delicious. Anyone who loves Greek food needs to come eat here.

There for lunch. Greek/Mediterranean inspired menu. Lots of gyros/pitas/sandwiches but some dinner items. Lots of salads and appetisers (including Saganaki -- Opa!). Full bar, including Greek beer & Ouzo. Staff friendly, atmosphere friendly, food very good and very reasonably priced. Limited parking, however. And noted...some Ecorse Finest (police) eating lunch there, and a 2 parties of business associates.More

My husband and I had dinner at Auburn Cafe on Saturday. It's one of our favorite place because the food is always incredible and the atmosphere and staff are wonderful. Gus, the owner, takes time to stop at tables to make sure you're satisfied and...to visit. He's a very personable host. We love Auburn!More

I have been eating here for years. I live in Florida but come to Michigan to visit family 3-4 times a year. I missed this past year but went in January. Unfortunately the owner passed away and the quality of the food also died. We...ordered gyro's, greek salads and flaming cheese, the cheeze being the only good thing. The gyro meat, 4 slices, were prepackaged. We could tell immediately. The large greek salads were mostly all lettuce. No tomatoes, no beets, no pepperoncinis, a few slices onions, and 6 olives. WTF. Please go back to the level of quality that it was in the past. There were 12 of us and not one of us will return until the quality improves. Very disappointing.More

This is a real gem for Mediterranean food. The menu includes lamb chops, Greek Salad, Lemon Fried Potatoes, Meat Balls, Beef or Chicken Kabobs and more! But the reason I keep going back is for the Stuffed Grape Leaves! they are the best grape leaves...I have ever had, and I have tried them in many restaurants and I keep coming back here! They are stuffed with meat and rice and served hot in a wonderful sauce. All of their food is delicious and I recommend Auburn to anyone who likes Mediterranean food.More

We have been enjoying the Auburn Cafe for over 20 years! I first dined at Auburn with a friend, and then often for business meetings over the years. The Greek salad with chicken is fantastic, and the gyros are always incredible-very fresh and made with...high quality ingredients! The staff is very friendly and we look forward to dining at Auburn Cafe!More

In a crummy part of town the food is very good. Greek restaurant with very good Greek dishes. If you are here and want to eat, this is a good option.

We were visiting relatives in the area and they took us here for lunch. What a great meal. Everything was done to perfection. We tried a few appetizers and all were amazing. The saganaki/flaming cheese was excellent. Also tried a couple different dips. One was...a mashed garlic spread and the other was a thick soup like spread made from tomato sauce,chilli peppers and feta cheese and some finely minced vegetables. All were served with warm pita bread and were to die for. The lamb chops and chicken cutlets are second to none. We also had the thin fried potatoes. For an excellant meal try this place. You won't be disappointed.More

This is one my favorite restaurants for Mediterranean food. They have the best stuffed grape leaves in the Detroit area. They are listed as an appetizer but I usually order them for my entrée. There ten grape leaves in an order, which is pretty much...a meal. We usually order a large Greek salad for the table, which is delicious and more than enough for four people to start off their dinner. We also order a large lemon fried potatoes to share with our entrees. they are also delicious. They also have the best lemon rice soup in the area but I usually don't have room for it with the salad and grape leaves and the potatoes. Rice pudding is usually served as a dessert at no additional cost. If you like rice pudding, then you will like Auburn Cafe's rice pudding. The lamb chops and meatballs are also very good but my favorite has always been the stuffed grape leaves. If you like Mediterranean, you definitely should try Auburn Café!More
