“Best Burger Of ALL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2012

At the SideTrack in Depot Town in Ypsilant, MI. The Amtrak. By far the best, juiciest most flavorful burger around!

“Historic area of ypsilanti, well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2012

Depot town is the area surrounding the original Ypsilanti train depot which still stands and most of the buildings in the 100 block of E. Cross St. The old train station is not open at present but it is the site of the farmers market on Saturdays from May till October.
Depot town is a great area to explore and you can easily spend the day here visiting the shops, cafes and museums. At the corner of Cross st. and River st. is the Ypsilanti Automotive Heritage Museum. It is housed in the last Hudson Car dealership to have stayed open in the country. Down the street, 2 blocks away is th Michigan Firehouse Museum, which is fun and interesting.
Thursday nights from June all summer long is Cruise night in Depot town. It is really a blast don't miss it . The street is closed off and filled with hot rods and music and it is really fun. Tuesday nights in the summer are bike nights, everyone comes down on their motorcycles.
There is a vintage motorcycle shop slash coffee shop called Cafe Racer thats worth a visit. Also don' t miss going to the Sidetrack Cafe which was voted to have one of the top 10 hamburgers in the U.S. and has an extra large selection of hard to find beers on tap.
