I've been lurking on all your Detroit posts for awhile, despite living in Columbus, OH. I especially like to read them when I am hungry and/or homesick.
Anyway, here is my challenge. My parents have a weekly eating out budget of $15 per week and have been pretty much sticking to pizza or subs. I'm positive there are other great cheap eats out there for them. They live in Farmington Hills but don't mind venturing out to their old neighborhoods in Redford or Livonia. They'd probably drive to Southfield or Novi, too. They prefer carry out.
