Hungry Now? Quick Lunches in the D

By: Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers | February 22, 2017

It’s lunchtime at work and you’re already swamped with things that need to get done before you leave for the day. That’s when your stomach starts making those oh so familiar noises, letting you know it’s time to step away from the desk and get your grub on. Where are you going to go in the area that isn’t a fast food drive-thru, but allows you to get in and out quickly with a quality meal? One of these fine establishments might do the trick.

Sister Pie

I know, I know. Sister Pie, as the name so obviously implies, is in the business of making and selling pies, but did you know they make a mean salad, too? The Sister Salad is made up of celery, wheat berries, sunflower seeds, scallions and poppy-yogurt dressing. Get a small for $5, a large for $7 or a small with a slice of pie for $8.

Rebel Cafe

What used to be known as Burgrz in downtown Royal Oak is now Rebel Cafe. Don’t worry, the fast-casual eatery isn’t completely moving away from slinging the juicy burgers you’ve come to love. There are five specialty burgers on the new menu, like BBQ, Bleu and Cali, but new to this spot has a giant breakfast menu. Feast your eyes on bacon pancakes, a cinnamon roll sandwich, “quick burrito” and more. Everything is available all day and delivery is available.

Go! Smoothie

While most wouldn’t think of a smoothie as a full lunch option, Go! Smoothie has so many options (not to mention protein options) that give you the literal power to build the smoothie of your dreams. Pick from one of their menu classics and head over to the “Boosts” section for any add-ons you want to throw in there.

Rose’s Fine Food

Roses-Fine-Food-Dude-Abides-Bowl

“The Dude Abides” from Rose’s Fine Food.

Located on Jefferson Avenue in Detroit, Rose’s Fine Food takes the diner concept and classes it up a bit. Using quality ingredients, you can get a fresh lunch, like “Miss America” (roasted chicken, melted cheddar, caramelized onions, herbed yogurt, Detroit-grown salad greens on house toast) or “The Dude Abides” (rice bowl with seasonal vegetables, avocado, house kimchi or pickles and sesame dressing).

Frita Batidos

By name, Frita Batidos refers to burgers and milkshakes, A.K.A. a match made in Heaven. Fritas are Cuban-style burgers and Frita Batidos is built around the build-your-own style of ordering. Choose the protein and toppings and follow it up with your choice of milkshake (or other beverage options) and sides.
