Mercury Burger features a cool vibe reminiscent of a diner with crafty bar to eat, side tables and booths and a downstairs for overflow traffic and parties. Menu features fresh burgers with all the toppings, really good turkey and black bean burgers, fresh cut fries,...More

All good here—cool place, delicious burgers, tots, fries, and the rest, and really nice beer selection. Will make this a regular stop on my trips to Motor City.

Great place to take out of town visitors. Juicy burgers. Most excellent Topor pickles. (go buy them at HoneyBee market in Mexicantown). great patio service in the summertime. They have a limited menu, however, what they serve, they cook and serve very well

Had high hopes, been living in Detroit for few years and finally took the time to stop here for a bite. Looking at the menu, I thought it was pretty expensive. Usually you are throwing down over $10 for a burger or sandwich, it usually...More

After a day in the city we stopped for a couple beers and fries for a snack. They have the best fries and many different flavors to choose from. I'm not a risk taker so I just went for the salt & pepper fries. One...More
