Mr. Kabob

BEST GAS STATION FOOD: Our gas tank was on empty and so were we - rumble, rumble. We stopped at the SUNOCO and filled up our tank. Then we went inside and ordered something to fill us up - and we're not talking about stale doughnuts and potato chips.

There was a time not too long ago when you stopped at a service station for gas and maybe a soft drink or a candy bar. Although most now have morphed into convenience stores offering sandwiches, hot dogs, donuts and slurpies, few if any flaunt the restaurant-quality cuisine turned out at Mr. Kabob, located inside a Sunoco station at the corner of 12 Mile and Coolidge.

This Detroit-area Mediterranean home-cooking chain was opened by a pair of brothers inside a Sunoco. The open kitchen's a rarity for gas station fare, and the popularity of their fattoush salad adds a level of healthiness that's equally as surprising. Family-style combination plates make group to-go orders a heroic move, but if you're driving solo you can't go wrong with a classic $5 shawarma.
