Eaters Of Lakewood At Plank Road Tavern

Eaters of Lakewood welcomed their 14th event at Plank Road Tavern on Saturday, March 19th. Plank Road Tavern occupies the former spot of The Riviera Bar on Lauderdale and Detroit. Upon walking in to Plank Road, you're greeted by a cozy and simplistic atmosphere. There's a long bar across the side, easy to approach for an after work beer or a quick bite, plenty of high top tables, a classic aluminum ceiling, and a built in fireplace against a bright red wall where two people can dine intimately. Everywhere you look at Plank Road there are different groups of people enjoying the food and drink. Whether you are looking for a date spot, a place to eat with your family, or come after work, Plank Road is welcoming for everyone.

Many of the EOL guest were excited to try the menu. Guests liked that the meats came from Lakewood's own TJ Butcher Block, and you could choose just about anything from onions to peanut butter to top your burger. There's an extensive beer list to fit anyone’s drinking desires. Although their Plank Road fries were different and unique, our guests felt they were lacking in flavor and crispiness. The fries were easily forgotten about when you bite into one of their amazingly made, moist burgers. The Chorizo Burger was bursting with flavor and was complemented well by the ciabatta bun. The Plank Road Burger was so juicy and fresh you could swear they had cows out back just waiting to become patties. This event was well attended, good friends, good food, plenty of drinks, slow service, but that was okay because time spent with good people is priceless.

A gift card was raffled off and won by Mo Farunia! Congratulations Mo! Please join Eaters of Lakewood in April at the Flying Rib on Saturday, April 16th 6 p.m.- 9 p.m.
