If you are seeking some truly memorable Chinese food when in Livonia, Szechuan Empire South is the name that you need to know. We've only had the pleasure of eating carryout from this restaurant, but they have never let us down and we continue to come back time and time again. It's a perfect quick pickup too, when you need a filling snack or even a whole meal while traveling in our vehicles. The things that we would recommend most highly at this restaurant would have to be the delicious fresh spring rolls, the crab rangoon as an appetizer or even dessert, the chicken or shrimp lo mein, and of course the ginger garlic chicken or almond chicken! So many wonderful things to choose from, and such a friendly staff too! You'll love it.

For special occasions when you really want to celebrate with a great meal, you've got to try Giulio's Cuchina Italiana right here in Livonia. The lamb is our absolute favorite thing on the menu, just so "fall off the bone" good! The calamari is also one of the most oft-recommended items on the menu and we have always enjoyed it. It's the perfect appetizer, if you even have room left for one after you go crazy on that amazing bread basket that they provide! So delicious. Everyone that we know raves about the desserts here, so even if you've already overstuffed yourself with delicious apps and entrees, we recommend splitting a smaller dessert with your friends. It's that good. Giulio's is very highly recommended!
11320 Middlebelt Rd - 734.422.1100
There's nothing more convenient in terms of quick dining during group travel than stopping in to a really great deli, and Bread Basket on Middlebelt Road really fits the bill. They have a nice variety of pickles that you will certainly enjoy, and those are the perfect complement to their large delicious sandwiches! The beef brisket on rye is one of our favorite things to order here, and it tastes so good with a heaping side of sweet potato fries too! Yum. They serve their soda pop in cans here, which is unique and kind of cool. We just love the casual laid back atmosphere that envelops you when you walk into this deli, and the staff really goes out of their way to make sure that you feel taken care of. Top notch, and then some!
17400 Haggerty Rd - 734.542.9463
We've dined at Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar so many times over the years, and the thing that we are most impressed with is their consistency. We have a world class time, every single time. When does that happen elsewhere? Next to never. And at a high quality establishment like this, it means even more. You can really sit down and enjoy the amazing atmosphere while dining on your favorites like filet mignon, lobster tails, ahi tuna, and more. The simple things are fantastic here too, from the soups to the salads, from the onion rings to the perfectly cooked french fries. Despite this being one of the higher quality restaurants in the area, we think the prices are very moderate. Don't skip dessert here, it's mouth wateringly good!
19262 Victor Pkwy - 734.542.8162
Doc's Sports Retreat is hands down our favorite sports bar in the city! There are more televisions here than at any other bar we can think of in the area, and we love that because you're not confined to your seat during the big game. You can mingle and have a great time and never take your eye off the game! The pizzas and bar fare are just exquisite, and they of course have all your favorites plus a few surprises here. Truly one of the top surprises would have to be the fact that their good strong drinks are never too pricey. They offer some of the best drink prices in the area, in fact! That's refreshing to see, and even essential in today's economy. The customers certainly appreciate it and come back time after time for more.

As you know, Buddy's Pizza is one of the gems of Michigan that earns awards and praise year after year. There are so many locations to choose from, but this one on Plymouth Road in Livonia has always been a winner as far as we are concerned. We love to start off with one of their large antipasto salads, or if we're in a really indulgent mood, the fries that are smothered in ranch dressing, crispy bacon, and melted cheddar cheese. Nobody does those fries like Buddy's does. Of course the star of the show at Buddy's is always that delicious Sicilian style pizza. Thick and crisp, just greasy enough, and piled with your favorite toppings. This is our top choice for a fun and casual date, whether it's your first or one of many!

Bates Hamburgers has been going strong for decades, and these little hamburger stands don't stick around that long unless their quality remains as unwavering as it was in the very beginning. The crinkle french fries are what they are known for here, so make sure that you get some along with that delicious hamburger! The way we like to order our hamburgers at this location is with extra everything, and that just kicks it up a notch so it's a high-def yet old fashioned dining experience! Wash it all down with a creamy chocolate shake and you are truly good to go. This is the one place in Livonia that we can never skip. When we're in the area on our own time, we always make a pitstop at Bates. Very highly recommended!

Bar Louie has several different locations in southeast Michigan, and we are especially big fans of this one. The location couldn't be any more convenient than it is on 6 Mile Road, and that's why we often find ourselves stopping in after a long day of work for a brewski or perhaps a dirty martini! They are in fact known for their martinis here, so we do recommend that you try at least one of them, ranging from dry to sweet depending on your personal tastes. They do them all jsut perfectly. Our favorite thing to eat here are the huge sandwiches. They're large enough to share unless you have a truly mammoth appetite after a long hard day at work! Always a fun place to stop in with friends for some drinks and good food!
33653 5 Mile Rd - 734.427.8460
This is the other essential sports bar in Livonia, with so many things to keep you busy including the darts league that they're known for! We love the fact that they have both electronic darts and old fashioned darts here, because the old fashioned variety are just too hard to find at any bars nowadays. They've got a great jukebox here that's well stocked with all your favorite songs, and when you combine that with the fact that their drink prices are so insanely low, you've got a great time at a very very cheap price. Enjoy a stiff drink, some good grub, enjoy the game, hang out with friends... what more could you want than that at this super convenient location? Bench Pub is a true winner in our book and we hope that you'll check it out when you're traveling with our company.

You'd think a place known as Mason's Cocktail Lounge would be best known for their cocktails, and they are really fantastic, but what really puts this place on the map is its famous burgers! All the locals know that if you want a great burger, just head over to Mason's. They're super juicy and delicious, with all your favorite toppings, and served piping hot just as they should be. It's a real pleasure to sit down and enjoy a hamburger like that, and then to pair it with an expertly mixed drink that didn't cost an arm and a leg. Friendly staff, great ambiance, and prices that are as noteworthy as the quality and quantity... enough said! We have been fans of this place for a very long time and we feel very comfortable recommending it to you. Don't miss it.
