DETROIT AUTO SHOW 1929
Detroit, 1929. Charles 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 to fit, in a hot dog bun. It is sautéed, steamed and 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.
Detroit, 1968. The 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.
Sterling Heights, 1989. Marcus Family Restaurant opens. Now, our customers are passing on the generational experience to their children and grandchildren by introducing Marcus Burgers and sharing memories of back in the day.
Shelby Township, 2009. Although Marcus Grill opened in 2009, we are actually 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.
We are Michigan born and Michigan proud. Our servers, staff and cooks are all working in Michigan because of you, our loyal customers. Our family also supports Michigan based companies. Starting with our "bread man" to our "produce guy" whom we have been doing business with for more than 20 years. Loyalty, pass it on.
