Reporter Food

Hungry? Check out the Oakland County Times Reporter Food Index

(Crystal A. Proxmire)

The Reporter Food Column – sponsored by White Castle – has been an ongoing quest to experience and share restaurants throughout Oakland County.

Below are links to over 150 Reporter Food columns, listed by city. Please consider checking out new places, trying new things, and supporting local restaurants. And if you are in a fast food kind of mood, please consider White Castle.

Please note this is a work in progress. There are still hundreds of fine establishments that I look forward to trying. If you have a restaurant to suggest, please email editor@oc115.com or join in the conversation on Facebook.

NOTE: Some restaurants listed below may be closed due to COVID-19. Also, some menu items may change. BE SURE TO CHECK THE RESTAURANT’S WEBSITE FOR THE MOST CURRENT MENUS, HOURS, ETC.

We are grateful for White Castle, our first national sponsor, for supporting this grand endeavor! Click here to find the location nearest to you!
