"Turkey" George Lyles moved to Detroit from Yazoo City, Miss., in the 1970s. In 1996, he opened his North End eatery, Turkey Grill, and has since developed a huge following. It's where you can get all things turkey: Hickory-smoked turkey legs, turkey and vegetable soup, turkey seafood gumbo, turkey chili, turkey salad, turkey neck stew, turkey ribs, turkey bacon, Cajun-fried turkey wings, turkey burgers, turkey pitas, turkey tails, turkey wing bites, turkey meatloaf — even turkey meatballs.
