Macomb County advertised the "Make Macomb Your Home" campaign all over the place. People moved to the county in droves. Most of Michigan's fastest growing communities are located in Macomb County thanks to County Executive Mark Hackel's no-shame advertising tactics. He wants you here, and you came.
One of the hot spots is Macomb Township. Within the 36 square miles of the township, new neighborhoods are popping up all over the place. If you've cruised any of the mile roads you've probably banged your steering wheel a few times wondering why they haven't widen the streets to acomadate all the new traffic.
With all this new growth comes new neighbors, someone has probably asked you, "Where's a good place to eat around here?" Staying away from the fast food joints, where do you go? There's not a lot of grills, taverns, dive bars or restaurants in the township, but the ones that are here are pretty good.
