Best Takeout in Detroit, MI

Detroit is known for many things, including being the hometown of Chevrolet! But locals know that there’s a lot more to the Motor City than cars, trucks, and SUVs. It’s also a city full of highly-rated restaurants serving up everything from Detroit-style square pizza to soul food and Cuban fare (and everything you can think of in between). But on nights when you just want to stay cozy at home for dinner, who has the best takeout in Detroit? Below, the team at John Bowman Chevrolet, Inc. highlights some of our top picks!

Buddy’s Pizza

Often imitated but never duplicated, Buddy’s Pizza originated the now-famous Detroit-style square pizza in 1946. With its perfectly crisped edges, your family may have to do some compromising over who gets to enjoy the corner slices. It goes without saying that your takeout order from Buddy’s should include one of their many specialty or signature pizzas, but if you’re looking for some appetizer recommendations, consider adding on an order of oven-baked meatballs or Buddy’s seasoned wedge-cut fries. 

Savannah Blue

Savannah Blue is a local hot-spot for traditional soul food. They offer convenient curbside pickup, so look no further than their Times Square location the next time you’re craving jambalaya, grits, fried chicken, and more! Don’t forget a side order of collard greens or maple-glazed yams, and trust us when we say you would seriously regret passing up their banana pudding cheesecake for dessert.

Vincente’s Cuban Cuisine

Looking to expand your palate? Place an order for pickup with Vincente’s Cuban Cuisine, where you’ll find authentic Cuban fare spanning several types of paella, over 15 tapas options, as well as classics like the Cuban sandwich and arroz con pollo, a traditional Cuban chicken dish served with sweet plantains and saffron rice. 

The Hudson Cafe

When you’re looking for the best takeout in Detroit that’s available during early morning or afternoon hours, head to The Hudson Cafe. This must-try brunch spot boasts an incredible carryout menu with breakfast staples like buttermilk pancakes, French toast, and Eggs Benedict. All are available in their traditional form, but if you’re feeling adventurous, you can’t go wrong when you branch out with fun options like Oreo pancakes, Monte Cristo French toast, or the Baja Benedict, just to name a few.
