Anthony Bourdain's Detroit episode of his show Parts Unknown introduced America, and Metro Detroit locals, to Greedy Greg's roadside barbeque for the first time, and Hell Yeah Detroit recently revisited and found out that Greg has big plans for the future.
They note that the food is fantastic, the turkey legs are perfect, mac & cheese is on point, and the secret recipe greens are a must. Greg was born in Louisiana and learned to cook from his grandfather, who recognized his talent and encouraged him to take his cooking public.
His customer base is primarily the local community, and though he occasionally gets "adventurous foodies", he wants to find exposure with a larger client base. He works full time in the auto industry, only serving food on Saturdays and Sundays from 4:00 p.m. until the food runs out, but his goal is to have a brick and mortar restaurant someday soon.
Hell Yeah pointed out that his blighted neighborhood is forgotten by organizations who help new entrepreneurs get started, so he is working on his own to figure out how to do pop-ups in the Eastern Market area or somewhere else with good foot traffic to start building a fan base. Hell Yeah Detroit is hoping to help Greg move forward with his business, so stay tuned for updates, and try them out, Saturdays and Sundays starting at 4:00 p.m. at Seymour and Chalmers.
