In addition to being part of a line in one of the biggest songs in history, Eminem’s “Lose Yourself,” Mom’s Spaghetti is now a food spot in Detroit, Michigan. It first appeared as a pop-up shop at The Shelter in 2017 in conjunction with the release of Eminem’s Revival. And during the pandemic, Shady Records helped arrange for Mom’s Spaghetti to be delivered to front-line workers and those administering vaccination shots in the Motor City. However, today, at 5 PM EST, its permanent location, 2131 Woodward Ave., will have its grand opening.

Eminem’s manager Paul Rosenberg said in a press statement, “The previous pop-ups were really a test for us to determine whether there was enthusiasm for a regularly-occurring Mom’s Spaghetti spot that would be open all year long.”

The menu is simple with a mere three items (not counting a beverage): a plate of Mom’s Spaghetti, Mom’s Spaghetti with meatballs [or a vegan option known as “rabbit balls”], and a Sghetti Sandwich. 

Union Joints Restaurant Group has worked with Eminem’s team on Mom’s Spaghetti from the jump and continues to be very enthusiastic about the project.

“The opportunity to build a permanent location based on an incredibly meta-reference was one that everyone at Union Joints, as a Metro Detroit restaurant group, took very seriously,” Union Joints co-owner Curt Catallo said.

The eatery will be a walk-up window, and located above it will be a retail space called The Trailer where patrons can purchase Mom’s Spaghetti merchandise and other Eminem retail items and memorabilia.
