Reporter Food: Egg Sandwich and Double Layer Nachos at OWL

Reporter Food: Egg Sandwich and Double Layer Nachos at OWL in Royal Oak

(Crystal A. Proxmire, April 27, 2018)

Royal Oak, MI- Open 24/6, with time off on Sundays, O.W.L. restaurant in Royal Oak gives patrons a simple menu of breakfast and lunch items, many with a Mexican flair.

A friend and I checked it out the other day, and split two tasty items.  The menu has a section of egg sandwiches, and we had the one with burger and cheese. And there was the double layer nachos, which were amazing.  The corn chips are fried in house, and the toppings were unique:  sausage chili, poblano cheese sauce, cabbage, pico, cilantro, jalapeno and radishes.

Other interesting items include sopa de pollo, habanero bacon, chicken fried chicken with gravy and avocado toast.

The setting gives something to talk about, with a mural by New York based artist Timothy Goodman that includes many Metro Detroit landmarks from past and present.

OWL is located at 27302 Woodward Ave. Find out more online at
