I love to eat out, but I am married to a person who would rather eat in...  Once he sees this list he might change his mind, though. The list comes from Only in Your State, and you can find more information on their website. There are so many reasons you need to get out and explore. Start out by trying these places, and then find some of your own. You really can't go wrong; Michigan food rocks.

    The Polish Village Cafe

    The Polish Village Cafe in Hamtramck, but it's definitely worth the drive. I recently got a chance to try some of their pierogis. They are delicious and come in so many flavors.  I would make the hour or so drive there again for the food.
