Dearborn's finest shawarma

Plates with bread, salad, hummus and meat.

The Al-Ameer platter with chicken shawarma, meat shawarma, tawook kabob, two kafta served with hummus and salad.

Howdy, folks! Sam here. When Detroiters are in need of tender, flavorful chicken shawarma, they go to Al-Ameer.

The intrigue: The Dearborn staple has consistently served some of the area's best chicken shawarma for the last 20 years — at least according to my friend Torin, who grew up and still lives minutes away from the location on West Warren Avenue.

  • We sat down inside and he ordered a shawarma sandwich for the road while we shared the Al-Ameer platter ($44), which includes more shawarma, tawook kabob, beef kafta with hummus and fattoush salad.

If you go: Open daily from 10am-10pm at 12710 W. Warren Ave. in Dearborn.
