Anyone can show up here. Detroit's only late night jazz club serving up Cajun catfish and red beans and rice all night long. It's not common to find a bar where everyone seems to know each other and yet newcomers don't feel excluded. Dozens of regulars turn up Thursdays for the open mic jazz jam sessions. Bert's serves the music fans bargain-price soul food from rows of steam tables: meat and two sides for nine bucks, or up to $25 for a whole slab of ribs. In keeping with Bert's bare-bones, working-class atmosphere, their food is more down-home than much of the soul food you find in restaurants, which has often been upgraded from its humble origins.
The menu centers on soups and sandwiches thus far, though within a few weeks Bailey plans to add some steak and pork chop specials at dinnertime. Perhaps it’s the lack of transportation costs that keeps prices down — shopping is done on foot within the market, and virtually everything on the menu is bought within a two-block radius. A half-pound burger goes for $4.65, a bleu burger for just $5.25, and a bowl of soup for $3. Best buy: a cup of soup and half a deli sandwich for $5.
Burly Eastern Market butchers chow down at this joint when they finish work. Big burgers, daily specials, stuffed chicken breasts, baby back ribs, whitefish and smelt. Meat's the word.
Daily breakfast, lunch and dinner specials. Twenty-ounce porterhouse or a full pound of crablegs for the earlybird. Roast beef and triple-decker club are a few of the "hand sandwiches." Chicken breast Alaskan and Italian sausage are listed under "knife and fork" sandwiches. Salads, soups, mess-o-mussel, jumbo shrimp, pork chops.
