We've been there.

Here are some of our picks of where to go to get grub at any hour.

24 hour/Late Night Coffee buzz

  • Biggby: Good news early birds! Thewill open at 3 a.m., Friday, Nov 25; the one in will be open at 2 a.m. 
  • : The drive thru is open 24 hours, even on Thanksgiving. Also, McDonald's Street Team will be passing out gift cards starting at 6 a.m. at Lakeside Mall.
  • : The Hall Road Shelby Township location will be open 3 a.m. on Black Friday.

Quick Bites

  • : You can get in and out quickly, and there's pie!
  • : Fast, fresh and inexpensive we like this Mexican spot for a quick and easy lunch.
  • Pei Wei: Right outside Lakeside Mall, Pei Wei is an inexpensive and fast a hybrid of the sit-down/fast food experience.

Sit Down

  • : We like Shogun for a break spot, both for the food and the distraction from what we've just spent and what we still have to do.
  • Abuelos: Tucked just outside the Lakeside circule, the tortillas and salsa alone make a trip to this Mexican restaurant worthwhile.
  • Cheeseburger in Paradise: The name says it all. This joint serves up good old American comfort food with an "island" twist. We recommend the sweet potato fries.

Off the Beaten Path

To get a break from the Hall Road crowds, try these off the beaten the path spots.

  • : This Mexican spot in Macomb Township is an Macomb County favorite.
  • : The quick trip up Romeo Plank is worth it for one of the most heralded pizzas in town.
  • : The buzz is about the burgers at Shamrock in Utica. 


You made it. Time to celebrate your deals, or drown your spending sorrows. Either way, try these watering holes.

  • : If you're in need of a good beer, chicken wings, a TV and a seat to take a load off, Hatchy's has it all.
  • Dooley’s: The luck of the Irish may be what you need to find the perfect gifts on Black Friday. Patch thinks you may be able to find it at Dooley's while drinking a beer on tap.
  • : There are two Hamlin Pubs in Shelby Township. If you go for dinner and stay for a drink, you may be able to catch some live entertainment Friday evening.

Juan Miguels on the southside of Hall Road between Heidenrich and Card Road, has the best Mexican food.
