This profile of Bone Heads BBQ is part of our Saturday Restaurant Profile series. If you are a lover of BBQ, Bone Heads wins hands down for their atmosphere! They are housed in a former inn that is supposedly haunted. I definitely recommend visiting during the Halloween season as they go all out in decorating.

Mr. Spot’s – Saturday Restaurant Review

The owner and staff now know him by name. My husband is a native of the Philadelphia area and I spent a number of years in the area where you can get a […]

Maiz Mexican Cantina – Saturday Restaurant Review

Maiz - Chips & Drinks

In my opinion one of the best Mexican restaurants in the Ann Arbor area is Maiz Mexican Cantina in Ypsilanti’s Depot Town. They offer free kids meals on Sunday nights, so that is always a great day to visit. Every meal starts with chips and salsa. Of course margaritas are always a good bet (for the adults) at a Mexican restaurant. […]
