Here's what LoveFood had to say about the best mom and pop restaurant in the entire state:

"Detroit was once (perhaps unfairly) dubbed a 'food desert', but it's far from that now, with swish spots selling small plates joining long-standing (or new) mom-and-pop stops. Among them is The Jamaican Pot, opened by a husband and wife team Rose Forrest – aka Mama Rose – and Bruce Cunningham in 2014. They're loved for their boneless jerk chicken, curry goat, and red snapper dishes, and they've now got a second location."
