Who makes the best milkshakes in Southeast Michigan? I live in Detroit but am not at all opposed to driving a fair bit for something spectacular. My dream shake is extra thick and filled with chunks of actual berries that stop up the straw. Malts need not apply.

Have you tried Oberweis Diary? I haven't, yet, but am told their shakes are wonderful.

I'm a partisan of the Guernsey Dairy, myself. Pizza Bob's in Ann Arbor also makes a mean shake, but don't remember them being chunky.

Real fruit milk shakes. Super delicious! My family and I often made the 40+ minute drive there just for the milkshakes.

Before you support Oberweis Dairy, you might want to look into Jim Oberweis, who ran for every political opening except dog catcher for a while in Illinois, and see whether you're interested in supporting someone like him. Also, I have had an Oberweis shake before I knew anything about Jim Oberweis, and found it vastly inferior to Steak & Shake.

I too have quested for the most beautiful shake in all the land. A blender, some fruit and ice cream from the Washtenaw Dairy or Kilwins is a good path to go down.
