I've wanted to experience the phenomenon known as "Bucharest Grill" for a long time now, and finally got down there late Saturday night on our way home from the Wayne County Lightfest in Westland. We couldn't have chosen a worse night to battle the crowds and traffic along the Woodward / Park St. / Cass Ave. corridor, as Noel Night was just finishing up, Wayne State held commencements and there were events at both the Fox and State Theatre (is it even called the State Theatre anymore?)...but, we were passing through so we decided to see what the fuss was all about. We called in our order and found a parking spot to wait. Bucharest Grill is located inside the Park Bar, so if we didn't have two toddlers with us it would have been perfect to wait while enjoying a cocktail or eating there but with kids in tow that wasn't a possibility. Despite how busy they were, the order was placed and ready in 20 minutes. My wife and I ordered two falafel shwarma's, a small humus, and fries. We had another 15 minutes drive home, so we ate the fries on the drive and they were amazing! They tasted like a thicker version of McDonald's fries, and in my opinion, McDonald's has the very best fries around (don't laugh). We arrived home and dug right into our shwarma. Although not still hot (remember we had a 15 minute drive home), the falafel was super crunchy (but not hard) and was generously topped with tomato, onion, garlic sauce and green pepper. All I can say is "wow," it was amazing! The humus was so-so, but I consider myself a humus snob, being 50% Lebanese. We did put the humus inside the shwarma, where it tasted better than on it's own. I would most definitely go back, as the service was friendly, the price super-reasonable for what was given and the food excellent. They lost a star in my review only because when we double-checked our order it was someone else's. Minor inconvenience to have to go back inside and fight the crowd again but everything was fine. I can see why everyone raves about Bucharest Grill. Definitely a must-try!
A few friends decided to try this bar for a bite to eat before the a Redwings game. We were pressed for time and told the bartender we were in a hurry and all wanted burgers with fries and a few beers because we wanted to catch Tommys shuttle service to the Joe. Well in a few seconds the beers showed up and not much longer the burgers showed also. I was VERY impressed we got served so soon because the place was a little busy. AWESOME BURGER. ONE OF THE BEST I HAVE HAD. And I have had my share of hamburgers! We were on the shuttle a few seconds after that and at the Joe within a few minutes. Fun crowd, great beer selection and GREAT BURGERS.
Very nice owner, friends well u no how "fo sho" bro's. Don't judge a bar or book by its cover exterior get to no the interior before judgement. Fool me one shame on you fool me twice shame on me!!!!!! Very friendly peeps don't get to close you will get diminished and hurt as all bar hoppers do. Excellent learning experience and entertainment. Must give this bar a chance "FO SHO". Word of advice "A snake will always slide around, but wen he puts the venue on you and won't help to say your life, it's a snake leave it alone to itself and let the jungle take it out.
