Retro-themed Michigan Ave. diner delivers freshly-prepared comfort foods
Angie’s Hamburger Stand is a throwback comfort-food haven — or heaven if you’re fond of greasy, slightly-larger-than-sliders burgers and made-to-order street tacos the authentic taste of which few restaurants around can match.
Located at 47417 Michigan Ave. in Canton, the retro-themed eatery (think 1950s shiny metal diners) offers a tasty scaled-down menu loaded with items that promise to make you happy, but not necessarily healthy.
But that’s the beauty of the place: It’s not promising to please your inner-vegan self.
From it’s exterior and interior decor — Michigan Ave./U.S. 12 was no doubt populated by dozens of similar businesses in the 1950s and ’60s during the pre-super highway era — Angie’s delivers a nostalgic warmth to its visitors.
Like walking into time machine
Once you walk in the front entrance, it’s like stepping into a time machine.
You are greeted by the sight of cooks flipping burgers on a massive grill roughly 20 feet behind the dine-in counter, which offers old-school diner-counter stools for ready-to-chow-down customers.
The aroma of the place screams sizzling fresh-meat hamburgers, which are available in single-, double- and triple-stacked sizes.
Let’s just say the two single-layer burgers I devoured on a recent visit to Angie’s made me wish I had ordered four.
Angie’s menu is not robust, which allows it to focus on making what it does offer 100% appetite-pleasing.
Online reviews are exemplary — 98% of reviewers on one site gave it a thumbs-up rating — and the restaurants shakes were the target of many “You’ve got to try these” comments.
Angie’s offers a drive-thru, online ordering and dine-in options (I’d recommend dining in at least once so you can absorb the entire 1950s-feel atmosphere).
Cost-efficient eating option
Its prices are more than reasonable considering the quality ingredients it uses and the generous helpings of sides it provides.
Angie’s is a few-of-its-kind Canton dining experience — whether you’re a nostalgia buff or your stomach is growling for a wholesome, old-school meal.
