Best restaurant for a 3 a.m. meal/Best Funky Hole-in-the-Wall (Washtenaw County)
Fleetwood Diner

Up late? Hungry? Got five or 10 bucks? Why not hop on down to the Fleetwood? The best and funkiest of all funky holes-in-the-wall is also Washtenaw County’s pick for favorite 3 a.m. meal. Downtown Ann Arbor holds a dense population of broke college students who struggle to stay awake all day during class and all night for their study routines. For them, Fleetwood is next to a godsend in the wee hours of the morning. Open 24 hours a day, 7 a week, students (as well as locals who know a good place to eat when they see one) can pop in for a late meal or snack; perhaps a cup of coffee, a burger and Coke, a quick serving of fries, or even a little something to satisfy a craving for Greek food. Fleetwood is one of Ann Arbor’s most unusual locations to grab a bite to eat. It’s a trailer-style diner with a hint of innocence from the 1950s. It’s also a perfect spot to do the quick, meet-a-friend-for-lunch thing or just relax and chat. In warmer weather, outdoor seating is available — students love to relax and people watch.
