Just when we thought we couldn’t wait any longer, the Dearborn Restaurant Week has finally arrived! This culinary adventure is a 10-day dining experience exploring a wide array of cuisines and cultures. The Dearborn area is a true example of the range of diversity in metro Detroit, thus being a foodie destination all on its own.

More than 30 Dearborn-area restaurants will present “prix fixe” menus with $15, $25, and $40 price points for solo and dining pairs, to showcase Dearborn’s eclectic palate-satisfying fare that it’s known for. From savory burgers and barbecue to a global variety, with coffee and brunch to jumpstart your day and desserts for a sweet finish, the Dearborn Restaurant Week delivers from all perspectives.

We get it, so many restaurants and deals, so little time. Don’t worry, we got you. The beauty of this restaurant week is that you have two weekend opportunities to jam pack with the deals and specials that only come around once a year.

To truly maximize the experience of dining in Dearborn, one must plan. We’re here to be your guide to Dearborn Restaurant Week and have created an appetizer of what there is to offer and access to the full menu. Let’s begin.

Brome Modern Eatery 

Whether you’re on the move or have a minute to spare, Brome Modern Eatery delivers quick, healthy and tasty meals. From salads that takes a minute to see the plate to plant based burgers and some of the best milkshakes around. No matter what entree you choose, no order is complete without their tater-tots or fries.

La Pita Fresh

La Pita Fresh serves up some of the best Middle Eastern fare around. Find traditional options like pita sandwiches, kebabs and shawarmas or options with a spin like Baba Ghannouge with beef or the Impossible Kafta. No matter what you choose to try, La Pita Fresh always serves quality meals made fresh and to order with 100% natural and Halal ingredients.


Looking for good food with vibes to match? TRIA is your answer. Taste, savor and share (or not, we won’t judge) from a robust menu with options that don’t make it easy to decide. Spend the day at the close by Henry Ford Museum then head to The Henry, Autograph Collection where you will find TRIA and so much more. Need meal recommendation? We can never turn down the Salt Brick Roasted half Chicken with the Lemon Zested Broccolini and Mac & Cheese. You’re welcome in advance.

Dave’s Hot Chicken (Dearborn)

Wings and tenders and sliders, oh my! Dave’s Hot Chicken is here to satisfy every chicken lover’s cravings. With varying levels of heat, everyone can enjoy one of their choice menu options. Keeping it about the chicken, you’ll find three main menu options with the perfect side options to pair it with. Grab those extra napkins and wipes, because there is no way to enjoy a sandwich like this without making a little bit of a mess.

La Shish

Since 1989, La-Shish has proudly served some of the most highly sought after Mediterranean dishes to the metro community. Patrons happily line up for their variety of fresh breads, lamb chops, salads, shrimp, and more. This local staple never disappoints and serving up amazing deals at each price point throughout the entire restaurant week.

Lue Thai Cafe

This family owned and operated restaurant takes the word authenticity to heart by literally sourcing many of their ingredients from Thailand. In fact, they take their food quality seriously so that everyone can enjoy their delicious meals. Rest assured here that their meat is certified halal and that their menu features vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. Come for the Potato Curry and stay for seconds of the Sesame Shrimp.

M Cantina

For gourmet Mexican street food worth making a reservation, M Cantina is the place to be. Where do we even begin? How about the fajita bites with marinated flank steak or the sweet and spicy shrimp lettuce wraps? Be warned, you will be upset with yourself for not trying the passion fruit and coconut ceviche. You won’t regret it.

Malek Al-Kabob

If you struggle with choosing what to eat when dining out, we recommend combing through the menu at Malek Al-Kabob before hopping in the car. Each option sounds so mouth watering delicious like the chicken cream chop, loaded shawarama, or shish tawook, that trying to narrow it down will take some time. We recommend bringing a friend or two who like to share, to avoid playing the elimination game.

Noah’s Smokehouse

What started as a backyard cookout has evolved into a full-blown barbecue establishment. Founder, Noah has honed his BBQ’ing craft his entire life and has since opened Dearborn’s first smokehouse. Combining his passion for grilling with his love for the Dearborn community, he created an authentic, yet unique, American style barbecue restaurant serving up, smoked samosas, Tex-Mex tacos and the brisket and mac and more!

Ford’s Garage

For some of the most unique and specialty burgers around, Ford’s Garage is a must on your list of places to dine. Satisfy your hunger pains by pairing one of their stacked burgers with a choice from their Mac Bar and an Oreo shake, you will not be disappointed.
