The Evolution of Marcus Grill
The experience of a warm welcome and personal touch has always been vital within the Marcus tradition. Time travel with us and enjoy the unforgettable secret recipe of the historical Marcus Burger, as well as the authentic old world style Polish cuisine. Welcome to Marcus Grill!
Founding of CompanyCharles Marcus opened the 1st Marcus Hamburgers during the Great Depression. With the idea of making burgers more affordable during a difficult time, he invented an all-steak burger, sautéed and steamed, that fit in a hot dog bun. It became standing room only during lunch time for Detroit factory workers. I guess you don't really need a table to eat a hamburger in a hot dog bun!
The Passing of the TorchThe year that our maternal grandfather took over Marcus Hamburgers and eventually passed it down to our parents. Currently, three generations and counting, we are proudly upholding the Marcus Burger legacy.

Carrying on the LegacyAlthough the current establishment of Marcus Grill opened in 2009, we are a total of 83 years old! Of course, we added a little Polish, sauté entrees and killer breakfast specials. We have a full service bar, Keno and a Christmas tree decorated all year round to fit the holiday.
Excellent take-out, really stepping up to the plate. Fish and Mac was great!!
The polish food is awesome. Love the pierogis. Potato Pancakes are huge!!!! Definitely worth the money.
Amazing location & very extensive menu! Smells like home cooking, delicious and affordable! All in all, I always look forward to dining here.
I love this restaurant. I have since they opened. The food is wonderful. My husband loves the corn beef hash. I love the pierogies. Plus many more items on the menu. The wait staff is awesome. I come at least once a week.
Can't go wrong with anything on the menu! I finally decided to go ahead and try it after driving past it for years. Did not disappoint, their portions were huge and food was very tasty! Found my new family restaurant to go to! Will be back and 10/10 recommend!
This is by far my favorite restaurant in the area! They have the best Polish food around town!! The workers are so nice and truly care about you. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a delicious meal!
I'm not sure why Marcus Burgers are not as big of a deal in the Detroit area as they should be. It's a Detroit original. Steamed hot dog bun, juicy delicious burger shaped for that bun, covered in chilli onions mustard cheese etc. This place does them right, along with their authentic Polish menu. A must visit if you are in the area.
My favorite spot for Polish food and of course, a Marcus hamburger! Been eating them since I was a child at the original location on Six Mile Rd. Nothing compares to that hamburger served in a hot dog buns.
Great food Great service LOVE IT 😍
We have out Christmas Eve breakfast tradition here every year for the last 5 years and it's wonderful!
Marcus Grill is the ultimate hidden gem in Shelby Township. Best Polish and American food, excellent staff, and a beautiful restaurant. Wow is all I can say!!!
