We stopped here after leaving the Detroit Zoo for a quick bite. The place was busy at 1pm on a Sunday afternoon. There is a parking area that is free. We ate inside sitting at the counter and ordered cheeseburger, fries and shake. The fries are fresh and hot. Unsalted so you can salt them how you want. Inside you... More

Have you ever watched a well-oiled machine at work? We watched the crew at Hunter House work with precise perfection. Chili fries with cheese, cheeseburger with onions, and fresh shakes!!

Excellent little hamburger joint. No wait staff. Order at the counter and sit at the counter (they bring your food to you) or the counter around the windows (you pick it up). Burgers are cooked to order. Grilled onions are perfectly done. Fries are a must. Fast, friendly staff.

Every time I visit Michigan from Australia I have to stop here for lunch. Very delicious little hamburgers, and the chilli fries are yummy too. love the American feel of the place, and the place just smells so good, I know it's just the onion smell, but fried onions really do smell good :-)

It is a very small and simple place which serves a very simple menu but the best in taste. Their hamburgers are one of the best i had. Onion rings are made to order and are wonderful

A Birmingham institution. You want trendy/foodie/sushi? There are other choices. You want delicious, juicy sliders, fries, and a milk shake? Come on in. A very welcoming place, great to watch cars on Woodward from during the summer.

I love sliders and Hunter House used to be the best. Somehow it doesn't seem to be as good anymore. Not sure what has changed. I know the prices have gone up substantially over the years...but that's Birmingham. I used to like Hunter House better.

Ok, the slider is a bit expensive for a slider but they are tasty. I usually get a bag to go but have stuck around to eat at the counter. If you stay inside you will be wearing eau de onion from the massive amounts of burgers they churn out. Their onion rings and fries are really good. The best... More

Not too much to say about Hunter House - You just need to go and give it a try! I've been visiting Hunter House every time I'm near Birmingham for about 30 years now. They have perfected the art of searing a slider with onions. Sounds simple, but I assure you they pack the flavor into these delicious burgers. Thank... More
