5 Of The City's Best Takeout Spots

View as Map

Meet the very first Eater Detroit Mini Map. Covering all of Detroit's 139 square miles can be daunting, and add the suburbs and it's no wonder people get cranky because the Eater 38 inevitably did not cover that one really great restaurant.

Enter the Mini Map. A mini map is a hyper-focused map that's meant to give just a taste of a category or neighborhood, not the whole picture. This one features five of the very best takeout and carryout in the city. We left off one of your favorites, guaranteed, but that's okay. Let us know what we missed in the comments and this could become a full fledged map in the future.

Have an idea for a mini map? Let us know! Maybe it's best vegetarian restaurants in the city, Downtown's greatest coffee, can't miss restaurants in Corktown, or the biggest margaritas in Mexican Town. Don't be shy, make a suggestion!

Dish Detroit is on the border of Detroit and Grosse Pointe, but Chef Paul's food is solidly on the side of amazing. His takeout only menu features everything from sandwiches to homemade quiche of the day, to potato encrusted salmon or beef Bourguignonne. It's definitely upscale carryout. [Photo]

Whether it's tandoori chicken or ghost peppers, Amar definitely changes up the usual "deep dish or thin crust?" Supino's vs. Buddy's debate, so just skip all of that and go for the dried fish pizza. [Photo]

Slows To Go

Sometimes ribs, pulled pork, and some mac and cheese is necessary, but the 3 hour wait for a table isn't, which is why Slows to Go is such a wonderful thing. [Photo]

Bucharest Grill

It's beloved by many who know that takeout is definitely the best option and calling ahead is key. What's so special? Two words: chicken shawarma. [Photo]

Evie's Tamales

The best tamales in Mexican town are at Evie's. It's sit down, sure, and they serve chips and salsa, but it's not the ambiance that keeps people coming back, so just grab a bag full of tamales to go. [Photo]
