Food and restaurants in Wayne County

Top restaurants

BBQ Restaurant
“Really really good slow cooked ribs. Always busy. Sometimes an hour wait time. If that happens, there are other worthy restaurants on the same strip. It's across the street from the old train station that was abandoned and vacant for thirty years and has recently been bought by the Ford Motor Company to be a headquarters for their autonomous car research and development”

Diner
“THIS IS THE BEST!!! The diner is cute, great atmosphere and the food is HIGH QUALITY! The best breakfast in town. Before 11 you will beat the rush and if you have to be on the list you wait in your car. Which I don't mind, if I am with friends I get to talk to them longer!”

Bakery
“The owner, April Anderson, is in the kitchen everyday at 5:00am preparing every aspect of her baked goods fresh. And when it’s closing time, leftovers are donated to the homeless. Her spot is on the street with the most black-owned businesses in the country, and it’s so refreshingly diverse. You walk in and it’s like the Reading Rainbow in there. Her red velvet cake is my favorite—she uses beet juice instead of dye, and even a beet hater like myself was proven wrong.”
