Middle Eastern Restaurant

“When you say you're going to Hamtramck, people ask if you're going to/have visited Royal Kabob. This is our flagship schawarma shack, admittedly a little more Americanized than some other places in town, with perfectly grilled tender meat and great prices. I really like their mint tea, and the service is generally prompt and friendly.”

Entertainment

Performing arts venue
“There’s improv on Mondays and Saturdays at this rowhouse converted to a black-box theater, and scripted shows, too. It’s small and intimate and on improv nights the audience can jump in and play after the regular performance. Keegan-Michael Key of Key and Peele, a Detroit native, is on the board and got his start there. They let you bring in your own booze and it can get crowded, so it’s a good idea to go early. They also have classes, including a free beginner’s workshop to get your feet wet with games and exercises.”
