Little Champs Restaurant

There's a little roadside diner on Plymouth Road on the west side of Detroit that wouldn't look out of place in any small town in America. Bar stools, booths, and a small kitchen in the back add to the old-timey feel of the restaurant.

History on this location is sparse: It was built in the 1960's, part of the westward sprawl of the city. The last tenant, Little Champs Restaurant, was opened in 1984 by Elder Wiggins. The motto on the sign outside read "One of the greatest loves is the love of food." Little Champs operated until at least 2008, when the last health inspection violations were filed.
