Detroit abounds with charming, old-school burger joints serving sliders fragrant with the aroma of grilled onions. But Motz's stands apart, thanks to the quick service, 85-year history, gracious staff, and the milling workaday crowd that stuffs the joint around lunchtime. Then there's the charming banter of a family-owned business where jokes and gentle barbs fly back and forth that makes a late meal at the counter into dinner and a show.
