“Always great”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Sidetracks is always a great place to go and enjoy a quick bite or a full meal with friends. I enjoy the variety although I tend to stick to a few of my favorites including the really incredible friend mushroom appetizer. There is also a great variety of beers on tap. The additional space has helped relieve the congestion a little but expect a short wait at busy times of the day.

“Food is fantastic. Be patient while they work the kinks out.”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

The food and atmosphere here is fantastic. It's intimate yet has a funky fresh vibe. Only thing I've ever personally eaten here is a burger on a gluten free bun. Best burgers around and the gluten free bun, while a bit crumbly, are never hard or stale. The sweet potato fries are unique and served with a horseradish sauce that adds just the right amount of kick and flavor. Recently, service has been a bit slow but the managers are aware of this and are trying to improve. Sidetracks is an Ypsilanti landmark, you wont be disappointed with the food!

“What was needed”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Been driving all day, breakfast was a couple of tanks of gas ago, we were on the far side of a tad peckish, and here sufficed well. Its simple, fare burgers, sandwiches, dips, if there is tex mex then is a sort of Michigan Mex ,where chillies go Lutheran; and the guacamole is called avocado dip, and why not? The revelation here was the deep fried pickles, and the Chilli, But above all the pricing was very reasonable, and it did the job.

“Always a winner”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Ypsilanti's signature restaurant. Has all the history and charm and now being
consistently improved with added space and new rooms which work pleasantly with the past. Classic menu which changes little; can never go wrong with the burgers and their salads are huge, hearty and a lovely surprise. Excellent bar and beers galore. The Frenches do a great hands-on
ownership and are working forward with their iconic tavern. Now a fine place
for group events as well--weddings, showers, parties. Lots of good space.

“Sidetrack Bar & Grill”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

The atmosphere is pretty cool and eclectic. The tables are a little close together, but spacious enough. The fish and chips were really good, and everything was reasonably priced.
