My brother, sister-in-law and I ate at One Trick Pony last month. I loved being able to eat outside on Fulton Street in the evening -- absolutely impossible task when I lived in GR. I was, however, somewhat disappointed in my main course, which was some sort of pasta dish. Very bland as I recall, and I don't even remember what it was. My brother had walleye and thought it was pretty good, and the salad to start was quite good. Also, the price for the excellent New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc was quite reasonable. Those are hard to find out here, given the predominance of California SBs, and it was a real treat.

We almost always take Mom to Charlie's Crab for Sunday brunch after church and it is a real hit. By LA standards, the place is a steal.

Hmm, I did hear a story about a drunk (overserved) guy falling down the stairs into a table where a friend of mine was sitting. You wouldn't be involved in that fiasco, would you? ;)

Wow. On page 2 of this thread already and nobody has mentioned Bombay Cafe on Lake Drive? I know some folks are fans of Zeytin in Ada, but we've always had a spectacular experience at Bombay. As good as Indian gets in these parts... (going there this Friday in fact).

Disclaimer: In my opinion, Bombay is no better than a Chicken Pot Pie found in your grocer's freezer section. To get real Indian food, the kind with real Indian spices and ingredients, one has to venture out of GR...there is one in Holland, East Lansing and Ann Arbor.

Just curious why the comparison between Zeytin and Bombay Cuisine?

Zeytin serves Turkish food, Bombay serves Indian food. It's like comparing apples and oranges.

I agree. I like Bombay Cuisine, but it's got nothing on Shalimar over in Ann Arbor.

I don't have a top 10 list, but I like most of what's been mentioned so far. Let me just add one suggestion: Taco Boy. They've got two locations that I know of on, one on 28th and one on Plainfield. It's pretty low-rent, but I like the tamales.

I also forgot to mention Rose's Express (is it?), Olga's, and Osta's. I like Osta's; it should be on my top ten list.

I have but it's been a few years. I remember them as being pretty good but the restaurant was always dark.

I heard that new ownership has taken over, true?

At first I thought this was a joke about them popping up all over, then I followed the link and was totally surprised by the site (and the music too). I actually have never been there. How about a small poll/discussion on wings: BW3, Hooters, or Wing Heaven???
