Really cool place a block behind the Fox Theater near Comerica Park and the Tigers. The sandwiches, spreads, and salads are amazing. We walked there from the Courtyard Marriott on Jefferson at lunch and walked back to the People Mover. Bit of a sketchy area, but that's downtown Detroit. Big lunch crowd including lots of cops, so no biggie.

Our friend told us about this place (which is a block away from Comerica Park, home of the Detroit Tigers. We tried it, loved it, and can't get enough! In a city where healthy food options are sometimes challenging to find, this one marries excellent taste, healthy food, and quirky fun. The facility is "warehouse cool."

They have many TV monitors, so it's a great place to catch a Tigers game (and close enough to the stadium to join the fun if they win!)

Go for the Shawarmas - unbelievably good if somewhat messy. We were at the nearby FOX theatre and this place soon became a favorite of the cast and crew.

Very popular though - so expect a line-up and wait - but worth it and not too expensive.

but saw the reviews and tried the chicken shawarma. Liked it so much we ordered it again 2 days later. Both were take-out. One of the highlights of our trip to Detroit.

A staple for me now. Their shawarma is legendary now to the point it comes in six packs now. Very very reasonably priced food that can stick to your ribs. The chicken shawarma sandwich or the chicken shawarma salad is wonderful. Make sure you get enough garlic sauce to go around too; it's a must. All of the specialty hot dogs are tasty and huge. Fries are generous and mighty tasty. Just be forewarned that the lunch rush can be a bit tight. Their small lobby area is filled with all of the locals, the cops, students, professionals and just about what seems like the sea of humanity there. If you want to dine in, you still have to go up to the counter and then go grab a seat at the adjacent Park Bar. I wish there was an easier way to order but that's the way the space is allocated for this great little restaurant. Parking can be tricky especially on nights where there are concerts or ball games nearby; but that being said- Bucharest is the ideal spot to start off prior to the games at Comerica Park or Ford Field or prior to some show at the adjacent Fillmore or Fox Theaters.
