Best Of 2012: IndyPick • Place to Forget the Last Four Decades Happened

Detz is sort of a standout in the local dining landscape: First, for being positioned near a major downtown intersection — Colorado and Nevada avenues — it's almost hidden. Second, it does fair-to-middling diner fare, but also boasts local-beef sourcing. But most importantly, it's just like going back in time. The booths are blue, the walls are paneled in wood, and the coffee cups are upside-down on the tables; one time, I overheard somebody making a joke about Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger. But the ultimate sign of its time-capsuleness? People often sit at the counter, sip their coffee, and read the newspaper — in print. — Bryce Crawford
