Hi...I was born in Royal Oak and was cruising Woodward Ave in the '60s. The Totem Pole was one of many drive-ins we cruised. Duggan's bought the original recipes for many of their best foods. I was there in August and eat there twice.
I must when you are in Royal Oak....

Under a normal circumstance you would assume that a restaurant such as this, would make certain to control the amount of heat or air conditioning in the environment. I was just at Duggan's yesterday, and the temperature in the bar area was well above 80 degrees and counting.
Note, there are ceiling fans above and they were set on low. When asked if they could open a door to let a little air in, the bartender stated that he could not, because there was a fire code in place. When asked if they could turn the ceiling fans up a notch to cool the place down, he stressed it would scatter the popcorn around and suggested that we buy more drinks...
Well, we had ordered 4 rounds of drinks already and appetizers, so to hear that remark seemed a ""little cocky"" and ""disturbing"", I would say. Now, the food was delicious, but who is to say, that it could have easily spoiled in the the existing heat, the longer we sat there. Not to mention, they could invest in reupholstering their booth pads...For heaven sake, when you sit into the cushion, you feel coils underneath and their is virtually little padding left. You simply sink lower than the table itself.
There are so many other nice Irish Taverns on Woodward and in Royal Oak and Birmingham. I will make certain to visit the others more often. But, Duggon's should be ashamed of themselves.Such a shame really,it has such potential otherwise. Shoddy & uncomfortable inside =2 star service

The food here is certainly better than average for this type of establishment. The Big Chief burger is certainly unique featuring sweet pickles and a ""special sauce"", which appears to be a blend of mayo and yellow curry. The artichoke dip is also very good and is a favorite of my wife. They also make a good turkey burger for those who want to avoid beef, and their Ted's 5x5 burger is also very good if you don't go for a double stacker like the Big Chief (altough it is really about the same amount of food). I love taking people here and everyone has liked the burgers thus far. I love stopping in for a beer and burger on the upper level during the summer. The cruiser-bar atmosphere is great and this is the best location for spotting cool cars rumbling down Woodward while enjoying a beer.

I had gone here several times several years ago, but just went back and had a great time again! The selection of beers on draught is unbeatable. The jukebox had a perfect variety and there were enough tv's for everyone to see everything. I sat downstairs and inside for the first time and it wasn't quite as pleasant as outside but that's only because I love the deck upstairs. Definately worth going to at least once! We didn't eat this time around, but I remember the food being good - even though it was all fried that we had
