This restaurant has closed.
Many years ago, in the early 70's, My Uncle managed an Apartment building on the same block has Mott's. I remember me and my cousin walking thru the gas station parking lot next to Mott's at 10pm at nite to grab a couple of cheeseburgers and a medium sprite and somtimes a delicious double chocolate doughnut too. I Loved the place, and love the other Mott's down the street at Fort & Green too.
Right around the corner from my job, Motts is a very inconspicuous looking place. You wouldn't know by it's appearance that just inside the door lie some of the best burgers you'll ever eat. Life is funny that way. The neighborhood even looks a bit desolate. Don't let that bother you, though. They serve turkey burgers (my personal favorite) and veggie burgers as well. I guarantee that you'll go back.
I ate my first Motts Burger (also known as GUTBOMB)in Jan 1956,I have traveled all over the USA and Europa and have never found a Burger that was half as GOOD.Motts first opened in 1929.When I got my last Hamburger the waitres told me that every time the Detroit Auto Show is on she sees many custermores that stop by,including many old Fleetwood workers,which closed in the 1980's
