Here's the new Eater Detroit Mini Map, featuring some great places to eat meat on a stick, in honor of The Five Days Of Meat power hour. Covering all of Detroit's 139 square miles can be daunting, 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 includes six local places to try meat on a stick. Kabob. Satay. City Chicken. Corn Dogs. Popsicles. They're all here in the special Meat On A Stick mini map. Sweet, savory, fried, and baked, everyone loves animal protein on a skewer. We left off one of your favorites, guaranteed, but that's okay. Let us know what we missed in the comments, and tell us where to find it.
