HEIGHTS – Burger and chicken aficionados – particularly those with a passion for natural foods – have a new outlet to check out in north Dearborn Heights.

Moo Cluck Moo, at 8606 N. Telegraph, officially opened April 5 with a grand opening/ribbon cutting celebration attended by Dearborn Heights Mayor Dan Paletko, city officials, officials from the Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce, family and friends.

Restaurant owners Harry Moorhouse and Brian Parker, with the close participation of former Opus One chef Allen Fisher, came up with the restaurant concept nearly two years ago.

Combined, the three have more than 15 years’ experience in the food service industry.

“We share a passion for food – better food,” Fisher said. “Food that you crave. Food that makes you say ‘This is the best I’ve ever had.’”

The restaurant, which offers only carryout service, offers gourmet hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, french fries, shakes and natural soda with no refined sugar.

“What makes us different, is the fact that all our foods and beverages are natural,” Moorhouse said. “We use only 100 percent all-natural beef. The cattle are never given any form of antibiotics or growth hormones. All cattle are born, raised, fed and processed in the U.S. on a strictly vetetarian diet.

“Likewise, our chicken breasts are always fresh. We never use tenders or rib meats mixed with filler, and they are processed without antibiotics or hormones. The breasts are buttermilk washed, dredged in our secret high-protein flour mix and flash-fried in our healthy and nutritious blend of oil. Even our cheese is made from antibiotic and hormone-free fresh milk”
