Slider Hamburger Restaurants in Southeast Michigan

Metro Detroit and the greater Ann Arbor area dish up delicious little burgers – some in super old-school buildings – perfect for the kids

Think you know what you crave? Think again. White Castle may be the granddaddy of the greasy little burger (dating back to 1921), but these indie spoons, dotting the region from Macomb and Wayne counties to Oakland and Washtenaw, dish the mega-chain stiff competition – and way more atmosphere.
