Abes is a great place to eat if you need a quick bite. Nothing fancy, but you will get your food fast, and you get a lot. My favorite is the greek omelette with home fries, but i've never been disappointed with any meal purchase. The prices are very reasonable too.

The coney's at this place were fine. I had better especially in Detroit. I would rate it average. The staff OK.

I always love a good coney island dog, but the ones here are just about average and the service also. I wouldn't say it's a great place, but not terrible either. I think you can get a decent snack here, but it doesn't look very nice inside so maybe take it to go. It's fifty-fifty I would say...

during my MBA at Eastern Michigan (COB right across the street!) I ate at Abe's quite often (not to say every day!!!). And that's one of the things I miss the most about my time at Ypsilanti. Gyros and Cheese-steak hoagie were my favorites and today the most missed! RECOMMEND! BTW, even Bill Clinton has eaten there. Though he is... More

As others have said, the quality of Abe's has continued to decline over the years. If you're tanked at 2am you may enjoy it (hence the 10 at 2 comment) but otherwise, avoid this establishment.
