I grew up in that area and worked at Buick City for a while. Its really hard for me to drive up 475 and see that empty lot. Its really a shame that the east side in particular is filled with check cashing and boost stores. Even the bars and restaurants look rough. But I still find time when Im up there to visit angelo's or Luigis
I need more room for my signature
Have the misfortune of staying in Flint tonight. Are there ANY decent restaurants/bars? Not sure I want to venture out.

Go to downtown. You have 501, Blackstone, the Torch, and Churchills to choose from.
Shit, that's crazy, and sad. Never heard of Buick City. First picture is from 1953.
Downtown like the above post. The Red Baron has a good craft beer selection.
Except the Red Baron is technically in Burton, isn't it. Still a decent recommendation though. If you're in Flint, you might as well drive the extra 8-10 minutes and hit the Redwood Lodge. Good micro brews and great steaks.
Do not waste your time at Redwood, place is over priced, food is awful, beer is OK, not worth it at all.
Downtown is the way to go, 501/Wise guys pizza is good, Blackstones is solid, but if you are looking for a great burger and cheap beer the Torch is the place to go.
Red Barron is decent as well, lots of brew on tap (Most in the Flint area).
Wow, you have basically lived in Flint your whole life? Thats really pathetic.
They used to make Buicks there.
Got lost driving in Flint once and ran into the ghetto. I hit Dupont and MLK Ave in the North End. Every house was either boarded up or had guys sitting on the porch. Scariest experience for me ever.
It depends what you mean by decent. I agree with most of the selections. Cork is another good choice downtown even if you're not a wine connoisseur.
Yeah, Grand Blanc isn't really Flint.
No kidding. I live in GB. There's a major difference between the two. There's roughly three neighborhoods worth living in the city (if you include the downtown lofts).
Haven't been in years, but Luigi's is fantastic if you like thin crust pizza, and if it's still open.
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
Metropolis was fun, in a trashy sort of way.
Celebrations, which was out towards Flushing if I recall, was known as Penetrations. Pretty much every office went there on Friday and Saturday nights, and if you couldn't get laid there, it was time to give up.

Go to the Machine Shop. I believe it is on the Dirty Dort.
Only thing good about Flint is the FlintLocal 432.
Do they still have that planetarium there?

I live in Grand Blanc, work in Flint nearly everyday, and going into Flint for dinner on a weeknight or weekend night has not crossed my mind one time. Sage Brush is great. Drive to Fenton. Or De Eduardos in Grand Blanc. Also many hotels in Grand Blanc. Get your ass out of the Holiday Inn Express and drive south.
Fuck that, just go to downtown and spend time in Flint, it'll build character. Don't listen to Sir Snores-Alot above me. He sounds like just another Big White resident.
Admit it, Trevor. You've been haulin' ass so long, you're a Flintoid.

No argument except for the character part. It will build depression or death. Or both.
Probably best to stay south of the river.
