Reporter Food: Little MO in Downtown Pontiac

Reporter Food: Little MO in Downtown Pontiac

(Crystal A. Proxmire, March 6, 2020)

Pontiac, MI- Little MO opened in late December in Downtown Pontiac, slowly growing their regular customer base by offering creative and high quality meal options.  A friend and I had a great lunch meeting there, enjoying the bright space with the industrial art theme.

My friend had the “Souped Up Grilled Cheese” which was made with Gruyere, Provolone, Emmental, and Red Dragon Cheeses topped with heirloom tomatoes, candied applewood smoked bacon and a fried egg which he had served on marbled rye.

For me it was a trip back to the tastes of childhood with the “Best of What’s Around Burger,” made with freshly ground venison topped with candied applewood smoked bacon, Cajun tabasco, caramelized onions, and Detroit Zip Aioli on a grilled Hawaiian bun. The meat was light and well-seasoned and the toppings made it extra indulgent.

We both got veggies as our side, which on the day we went meant broccoli.

We chatted with the manager who said they wanted to be better than just bar food, and he’s particularly proud of the ever-changing selection of fresh made soups and the Sunday brunch.

Other items of interest are fried bologna skewers, deep fried pickled taters, gluten free onion rings, a variety of sandwiches, and salads, as well as dinners like potato lasagna, spaghetti squash ratatouille, and surf and turf with grits. Many of the items are made gluten free.

Little MO is located at 51 N. Saginaw Street in Downtown Pontiac.  Learn more at LittleMoRocks.com.
