25 of the best comfort food restaurants in metro Detroit, according to Yelp


We could all use a little comfort right about now, meaning comfort food — like mac n' cheese, meatloaf, pho, or chicken and waffles. We'll worry about our hemorrhaging DoorDash/GrubHub budget later and, well, we'll deal with the 20 lbs. we've put on in the last three weeks at some point in the future. What's most important is that we care for ourselves, and support our local restaurants by getting loads and loads of comfort food-to-go. This is an all-time list of the best spots for comfort food in the greater Detroit area, according to Yelp. We identified businesses in the restaurants and food categories with a large concentration of reviews mentioning "comfort food," then ranked those spots using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews mentioning "comfort food." This list looked at businesses in metro Detroit — Wayne County, Oakland County, Washtenaw County, and Macomb County. If a chain appeared on the list more than once, we only included the highest rated location. All businesses on this list were marked open as of December 2020. When available, all businesses on this list have a passing health score as of December 2020.)
