Bill’s Ham Place

My brother was in town for a couple days so we decided to get breakfast. We wanted something quick so we stopped in to this local dive breakfast/coney place in Lincoln Park. I remember stopping in to Bill’s Ham Place located on Southfield Rd, growing up and always liked it. Check out how this trip turned out.

Service: 4 out of 5 stars

Quality/Taste: 2 stars

Atmosphere: 4 stars (Friendly & authentic coney feel)

Price: 3 stars

Wow factor: 2

Western Omelette: Huge helping of eggs, ham, green pepper, onion, and cheese. This was enough for two and everything you would expect from a coney breakfast. Pretty spot on.

Tip: Order the hash browns well done.

I went with the Corned Beef Sandwich: Thinly sliced corned beef on an onion roll. I added a slice of Swiss cheese. It was good, but unlike the omelette, the portion was lousy. I decided to order it because it was marked “Famous” on the menu. More like disappointing. It still tasted good, but I scarfed it in seconds. For around $7, it was not worth it (the cheese was an extra 80 cents).

Check out what Ma made for breakfast a couple days later. Best of both worlds:

Corned Beef Hash with a fried egg: A great idea for leftover corned beef and it’s way better than the stuff out of the can. Brown potatoes and saute with onions and corned beef and top with a fried egg. When you break the yolk it creates a delicious, rich sauce that melts all over the potatoes.

OK, back to Bill’s. The waitress was friendly and made conversation the whole time in between greeting and waiting on her other tables. Bill’s Ham Place is a great breakfast and coney spot, but if you’re looking for a huge, stacked deli sandwich that they are “famous” for, try Hops & Barley or Wheat & Rye.

Hops & Barley

Located on Allen Rd. in Melvindale, Hops & Barley is a great spot to grab some good food and a cold drink. I made the mistake of going during the middle of the Detroit Lions game last Sunday, but I still received excellent service. The servers were on point, food was amazing, and they have flat screens everywhere for your viewing pleasure (even at each booth for closeups).

Pastrami Sandwich: Hot deli pastrami piled high on a bed of coleslaw, topped with melty cheese and Thousand Island Dressing served on an onion roll. The juiciest pastrami I’ve ever tasted! This monster sandwich was amazing and all for only $6.50.

Taco Salad: Juicy grilled chicken breast on top fresh lettuce, cheese, salsa, sour cream, and jalapenos. I personally prefer avocado and olives on my taco salad, but this bowl still gets an A-. It seemed as though the chicken was never ending and the portion was generous. The cook definitely didn’t skimp out on quality or quantity.

Hops & Barley has great food deals and even better drink specials. The atmosphere was loud, but the fans were in full effect making the visit fun and exciting. I give kudos to the servers because they were owning their tables, and seemed natural, not flustered even though the place was slammed. I’m making this my new spot when I want to catch a game without spending a ton.
