A Dining Guide to Detroit's Woodward Dream Cruise

View as Map

Every year, on the third Saturday of August, over a million people — and a quarter million classic cars — cram onto a six-lane, 15-mile-long strip of asphalt in Detroit. It's called the Woodward Dream Cruise, and it's the largest single-day car event in the world. But this slice of Americana isn't just for car geeks. Those willing to brave the burnt ozone and carbon monoxide poisoning will find plenty of options to burst the buttons off their ridiculous-looking poodle skirts. So jump in your Chevelle and hit the road with this list of where to eat and drink along the way.
