"Loved the veggie snacker. The sweet potato fries and onion rings were great too. Really neat concept. It's clear that the servers are in training but it's so important that they have this real-world experience. Keep up the good work!"
Claire L.Lansing, MI.
"I don't get to make it back to Detroit often so when I do I like to find good local places to curb my appetite. I stopped by Colors on my last visit and I'm glad I found it! My Chicken Shawarma Wrap was great! I got the seasonal vegetables as a side and they had the perfect amount of garlic on them."
Kelso H.Detroit, MI.
"The food was amazing. We started off with with Moroccan spiced meatballs, amazing! Then we had the sweet potato wontons, also amazing. And then the burger, let me tell you about that, it was cooked to perfection. Perfectly juicy! The beef is grass fed and all ingredients are local in Detroit."
Anthony C.Madison Heights, MI.
"The food is really really really good. The salads have more than just iceberg and romaine (one of my pet peeves of Detroit area restaurants). They have great photos of local gardening in Detroit."
Tricia H.Detroit, MI.
"Went here for the lunch the other day and had a great time. The sweet potato fries were tempura-style, fried and oh-so-delicious. I'm sure whatever healthy aspect they had was probably null and void after the frying process, but it was worth it! The turkey burger is intense - a little meat heavy for my taste - but my dining companion is a HUGE fan and swears by this dish."
Karey Q.Downtown Detroit, MI.
"I just created a yelp account to write a review for Colors. I just finished my meal - the chicken shawarma and sweet potato fries. It was absolutely delicious. The batter on the sweet potato fries was so yummy. The chicken was seasoned and marinated to perfection."
Natalie H.Kalamazoo, MI.
"I've really enjoyed Colors both times I had lunch there. I recommend it to everyone. The concept is great and I've never been disappointed by the good. Great vegetarian options!"
Brittany Z.Detroit, MI.
"I was worried about this place. You get the hard sell on do-gooding (living wages and skill building opportunities for locals) in everything I read about here. You also get fed the info about locally and ethically sourced, organic, yadda yadda yadda. Sometimes you eat at one of these type joints and the taste is just meh. Not here. This is a place that will not only make you feel good about the concept but also great about the product."
Liz W.Belleville, MI.
