I was up in Frankenmuth last week for a few days and on the way back we stopped to eat at Tony's I-75 Restaurant in Birch Run (yeah, where the huge outlet mall is) on the recommendation from my in-laws. Tony's serves typical American fare with a diner-style atmosphere. The prices weren't too bad either so if you spent most of your money at the outlet mall you'll still have enough for a meal that will not leave you hungry. Did I mention the portions?
This is what Tony's is known for -
big huge amounts of food. You can get an extra plate for only $.55. I strongly suggest doing so.
We split an order of Belgian pancakes, three eggs, hashbrowns (must have been at least three potatoes worth), and a pound of bacon (I kid you not - it was really a pound) three ways and still left with a take home container full of bacon.
The quantity was good, but how was the quality?
I thought it was right up there with any similar diner-style restaurant. Shoot, I figure you can't go wrong with a place that serves breakfast all day.
Good food, great portions, and fast & friendly service. We had our orders in about 5-7 minutes. They deep fry the bacon which explains how we received our order so quickly.
On an average day they go through 700 pounds of bacon. The typical weekend sees them sell about 1,000 pounds of hashbrowns.
Do yourself a favor and stop in at Tony's the next time you are passing through - it's definitely a unique place to eat.
