Checker Bar & Grill

Tharp and Gregory have put forth a profound effort to breathe life back into this classic Detroit establishment. Think: historic tin ceilings, graffiti murals by local legends, restored brick walls and funky retro kitchen objects you forgot you missed so much. While their boozy ice cream cocktail menu is coming soon, the kitchen is buzzing, offering an array of burgers and other treats, all of which are earning accolades for their fresh ingredients and creative combinations. The Blues Burgers speaks for itself with 1/3 lb fresh Wigley's ground beef, melted blue cheese, sugar glazed peppercorn bacon and bourbon honey BBQ sauce. When you make it over for lunch, don't forget to order a side of shoestring fries. They're arguably the best around. If you're curious but not yet sold, come ask how you can win a free burger.
