Take Out Time: One Eyed Betty’s in Downtown Ferndale

Take Out Time: One Eyed Betty’s in Downtown Ferndale

(Crystal A. Proxmire, March 18, 2020)

Ferndale, MI -One-Eye’d Betty’s is a Downtown Ferndale spot known for their large community-style tables, massive selection of Michigan craft beer, and a beautiful mural made of bottle caps tapped lovingly in place by patrons over the years.  And of course for their great food.

As of today OEB is open for carry out orders from noon to 10 pm, in accordance with the state’s requirements in light of the coronavirus spread. Their plan is to keep going until they run out of food.

Yesterday I decided to splurge on one last round of take out before returning to hibernation. This gave me plenty to sample with leftovers for later.

Starting with something somewhat healthy there was the Orchard Apple Salad made with Arugula, grilled apples, spiced pecans, cranberries, bleu cheese, onion and maple vinaigrette.

Less healthy were my other choices. There was bacon with a side of bacon (braised pork belly and applewood smoked and a poached egg), and an order of Looney Shrooms. Those are beer-battered buttons stuffed with dried cranberries, and goat cheese cream cheese served with sriracha-mayo.

For dessert there was a trio of hot from the fryer donuts – cinnamon sugar, peanut butter sriracha, and maple bacon.  There’s also a powdered option.

This gave me plenty to sample and some good leftovers to help me ease into this hibernating at home thing.

There are still many good items left, though once they sell out they won’t be stocking up.  You’re already too late from bacon and a side of bacon. Sorry. Not sorry.

As far as safety, they are meeting customers at the door and sanitizing the doors and the carryout table in between walk up guests.

And as far as doing their part in the crisis, they’ve also been handing out free meals for kids at lunchtime.

One Eyed Betty’s is located at 175 W Troy St, Ferndale, MI 48220.  Their website currently asks visitors to find their menu and latest updates on the One Eyed Betty’s Facebook Page.
