The main landmark in my neighborhood is the white tiled building with the donkey on the roof at the corner of the two main roads. Bray’z serves slider-type hamburgers with lots of onions, and you can smell the onions on some evenings as you drive by. As tempting as that is, I’ve yet to dine in this fine establishment, though I’ve lived nearby for fourteen years now. I probably should go once, in return for these photos.
There are several restaurants with similar names in metro Detroit, but it appears this one uses the “z” at the end to distinguish it from the others. There’s a website for Bray’s Hamburgers on the west side, but that’s completely different. You can tell, not only because they use an “s”, but because their donkey has the burger on its left hoof and the drink on the right. I’m sure some of my coworkers who are native westside Detroiters (or maybe altivo) know the whole story.
