Deja Food

Creamy, Dreamy Coleslaw

Our family’s “go-to” restaurant in the 1970s for birthdays, anniversaries, or a meal after church was The Susie Q restaurant (aka Chick ‘n Chips by Susie Q) in Royal Oak. It was on Woodward Avenue just north of 12 Mile Road. It was especially busy on Sundays after church, since I remember (as a 10-year-old) the velvet ropes that organized the line of people waiting to be seated. Everyone went here to eat their fabulous fish and chips. I learned to enjoy eating fish at this restaurant. They also had wonderful creamy coleslaw. To this day, their coleslaw remains a standard and my family will say something like “this coleslaw is almost as good as Susie Q’s!”
