Tony's I-75 Restaurant - Birch Run

Tony's in Birch Run
I remember getting a BLT at Tony's on my way up north one summer.  My mind was completely blown by this BLT.  The bacon was stacked incredibly high and it was all over my plate as well.  The BLT comes with a full pound of bacon!  All of the sandwiches were ridiculously large.  We decided to stop there on the way home from a trip Up North and grab some carry-out.

Since I'm not 10 years old anymore, I think that the novelty wore off a bit.  I was simply unimpressed with my food.  First of all, I'm pretty sure that this bacon is deep fried.  This leaves it not crispy, but sort of... rubbery?  It is a very strange texture.  Secondly, I asked for mayo on the side and it was completely forgotten.  Third, I ordered the Poutine.  That was fine.  But how can you mess up french fries with cheese and gravy?  You can't.

Since this is one of the few restaurants that Food Network's Diners Drive-Ins and Dives has visited in Michigan, I expected more.  It really is a novelty because of the huge sandwiches - no real quality.  Plus, the prices are very high since you get so much food.

Go to Tony's once in your life!  But I don't recommend making it a regular thing.
