Spargo's Coney Island, Auburn Hills, MI

The phrase “Greek diner” may sound like a bit of a contradiction, or perhaps just a big non sequitur, but Auburn Hills' Spargo's will deliver on that unusual premise with a will. When even breakfast gets a little Greek—like the gyro omelette and the Greek equivalent—you know you're in for something unusual. But toss it up a bit with kabobs, gyros, spanakopita and several other options, and you've got the potential for Greek fare morning, noon and night.
