5-on-5 is our highly-subjective series of lists released on the 5th day of every month. Our goal is to have fun sharing some of our favorites in various categories. From fish to French fries, pizza to pasties, follow our foodie lists for monthly recommendations across Michigan.
Comforting food. Endless coffee refills. Friendly service. Affordable prices. There are many reasons why us Michiganders love our local diners and Coney Island restaurants. We decided to dedicate this 5-on-5 to our favorite diner dishes.
Chili Cheese Fries
What do you get when you take a good thing like French fries, then dial up the indulgence? Chili Cheese Fries, of course.
Whether it’s biscuits and gravy, an open-face turkey sandwich, or an omelet disappearing under a blanket of chili, we love our smothered diner delights. A food coma typically ensues, so plan accordingly.
You can always count on an omelet. Night or day, these eggcellent dishes are there to fill you up. Served with an order of hash browns and toast, this breakfast staple can’t be beat.
A classic club sandwich isn’t a showstopper, but it’s one of the most popular sandwiches you’ll find at a diner. There’s something comforting and satisfying about the unmistakeable combination of turkey, bacon, mayo, lettuce, and tomato.
We had to save the best for last. Presented without comment.
