Taystee's Burgers serves up fresh burgers, fries from Dearborn gas station

Burger won top prize at 2016 Detroit Burger Brawl

DEARBORN, Mich. – Could Metro Detroit’s best burger be from a gas station? Crowds of hungry customers say, “Yes!”

We spotted Taystee’s Burgers inside the BP gas station at 10419 Ford Road, right at Ford near Wyoming Avenue.

Once we tried the burgers, it was, indeed love at first bite.

“It’s a dream come true, more than a dream come true,” said Ali Jawad, who started Taystee’s with his partner and chef, Mo, just a few years ago.

Jawad’s dream was to serve up fresh burgers and fries his way. Everything is made to order and now Taystee’s is getting quite the following for the big, bold flavors he and Mo come up with.

In fact, at the 2016 Detroit Burger Brawl, Taystee’s Burgers came out of nowhere to win the top prize with “Ali’s Nach-Yo-Burger.”

Since then, Taystee’s has been on a wild ride of steady customers at lunch and at dinner and into the night.

Jawad’s mom, Lila, even helps serve up the goodness.

“I get emotional watching how hard he works and the success he is having here,” she said.

Taystee’s Burger is up for Local 4’s “Vote 4 The Best.” 

Go on by, fill up outside at the pump, then fill up with a bold burger inside at Taystee’s. Then, cast your vote. Could the best burger in town be coming from this gas station?
