Road Food Reviewed
What a pleasure to find, so close to home, the Wolverine Grill and Grass Lake Diner. Both are true to the diner spirit but also idiosyncratic representations of their chef/owners--places to begin that day's journey or refueling stops for a road trip, on two wheels or four, on that long route leading out of Detroit to the west.
