You just can't beat a locally made old fashioned cheeseburger with crinkle cut fries! The grilled cheese is excellent as well. Small amount of seating inside the restaurant but we usually get carry out. Fast, fresh and delicious!

Excellent little burgers, a little bigger than regular sliders, yet a little smaller than a regular sized hamburger. We got the specials of 6 hamburgers and 6 cheese burgers with a large fry and we were pleasantly surprised!!

You can eat lunch easily for $6 and a tip. Great all beef coneys and sliders. Hot french fries. Cold pop. Fast service, Usually friendly people eating at the counter...The wait staff have been there for ages and are fast and efficient. I can get in and out in 30 minutes or less if I have to.

What can you say about really thick shakes with really thin straws and double cheezeburgers and a breakfast to judge all other breakfasts by (Yeah, it was a typical bates breakfast, 2 eggs,meat,toast,hashbrowns,...with coffee all for under $5 ). Like it's older sister in Livonia...this is among the best slider joints in metro detroit. Fast service , decent parking...A CVS... More

If you are in the mood for sliders this is the place to go. I try and stop here whenever I am in the area. I love the paper wrapper for the burgers but the grease will quickly soak through the wrapper and the paper bag. Your car will smell great for hours after you are done eating. The place... More

so good and greasy, they can't wrap it typical paper. So tempting and so naughty for you that they put it in a plain brown bag. I get the 6 pack special cause, well, they are not huge and 5's just not enough. I love cheeseburgers, but no cheese on my sliders please. and don't forget to get a chocolate... More

I LOVE Bates. This location is a lot nicer and cleaner (much better parking) than the Livonia Bates. Everyone is so friendly. Your clothes do smell a little like the grill when you leave, so I try not to eat in there with a suit on (will just do carry-out). It is the best place around for sliders.
