"We want them to know about the great things"

 

"Midtown is peppered with restaurants, ...Detroit institution Traffic Jam & Snug, 511 W. Canfield St. If you go to the Traffic Jam and don’t try the mushroom soup … well, I can’t help you. "

 

"This is the spot to come for homemade food with an eclectic twist and a great atmosphere."

 

"Where else in metro Detroit can you find a restaurant with an in-house bakery, microbrewery and dairy?"

 

"I spent almost 3 weeks in Detroit this month. I had intended to do a Battle of the Detroit Veggie Burgers piece but alas most of the places I wanted to try weren't able to happen. The winner as it stands would be Traffic Jam & Snug in the Cass Corridor section of Detroit. The spicy lentil veggie burger is just amazing. I can't get enough of this sandwich, I have it almost every time I visit Michigan."

Traffic Jam restaurant to be on Guy Fieri's 'Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives'

Detroit's Traffic Jam & Snug restaurant will be featured on the Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" show at 10 p.m. Nov. 28.

 

The program, starring host Guy Fieri, was filmed in August, along with segments at Supino Pizzeria in Eastern Market, and in Clarkston at Union Woodshop and Clarkston Union. At Traffic Jam, Fieri made two dishes with chef-owner Carolyn Howard and got a tour of the 18,000-square-foot restaurant, which includes a dairy, bakery, brewery and rooftop garden. Howard said the filming was "a blast for our staff and customers." Fieri "was really surprised that nearly everything we serve at the restaurant ... is made from scratch." The restaurant, at 511 W. Canfield, opened in 1965 and became Michigan's first licensed brew pub in 1992.
