How long has this place been around? Since sirloin steak dinners were $1. Beef is still kin at this huge downtown restaurant, which is truly a Detroit institution. It survives through thick and thin nearly 70 years after it opened. In addition to slabs of beef, there are fish and seafood selections, including big lobsters, and the classic roadhouse relish tray still comes to the table.
