Yesterday my husband an I took a drive to do some errands with the intent on stopping to have lunch on the way home. We were in the Down River area of South East Michigan. I told him to be on the lookout for a hometown bar because I was in the mood for a cheeseburger and fries….
We passed many bars along the way but we decided to stop at the Drift Inn in Rockwood. It was not much to look at and we had passed it many times over the years but had never stopped.
We were greeted by the Linda, the gal behind the bar with a smile and an attitude of “glad you stopped in”. We told her we would like to see menus and as she turned to go get them she told us of the “Special for the Day”. Stuffed cabbage rolls, mashed potatoes and peas… The thought of a cheeseburger and fries went right out of my head and we both ordered the “Special”
A few minutes later we were each presented with a huge plate of the most wonderful looking homemade stuffed cabbage. I couldn’t wait to take my first bite….and it was DELICIOUS, It was as good as it looked!
Did I mention the portion was HUGE????? I planned on taking half home with me but it was so good I ate the entire plate. Yes… I said it on the drive home, “I can’t believe I ate the WHOLE thing.
Chatting with the Linda we learned this particular special is always served the first Sunday of every month. We already have our calendar marked for the first Sunday of next month, we have a date for stuffed cabbage rolls and we are going to invite another couple because we know they too love this kind of food.
Linda proceeded to tell us that they have a different special every night of the week and they all cost only a buck. They offer a different super meal “Special” each Sunday of the month.
I can highly recommend the food at the Drift Inn and the service we had was excellent. The place is not much to look at on the outside but it was really very charming on the inside, as well as being very clean.
If you go please tell them Cindy sent you.
