Good food relatively close to Ford Field?

Looking for a great place to eat near Ford Field. Going to my first NFL game next week and looking for a good place to go and have dinner after the game.

Pretty open about the type of food really - not looking for fine dining though.

Doesn't really have to be too close to the stadium - don't mind driving a bit.

Thanks folks!

    Wow, no responses? I guess everyone was away from their computers over the holiday...

    Walking distance:

    Driving distance: Mexicantown if that's your fancy.

    Also I was intrigued by this review of a place I'd been to in its previous iteration (I know the space is gorgeous) also in the Mexicantown area

    Highly recommend avoiding Hockeytown.

      Cheaper than Angelina or Cliff Bell's (both good): the Elwood. It's basically a sports bar, but it's in a nifty little building, and it's seconds from the stadium.


      Good new gourmet (but inexpensive) slider bar, also in Corktown/Mexicantown: Green Dot Stables.

        Bucharest Grill is only a few blocks away. Sit in the attached Park Bar and enjoy a beer with your food.
