Hi all - Hoping for some guidance and an overview ... we're taking a road trip that will hit Detroit, Cleveland, probably Columbus - and I want to know what to eat.
We're Californians who moved to Tennessee and have never been to Michigan, or Ohio north of Cinncinnati. We like food. We travel to eat. For this trip we are looking for the food that makes these places unique or special ... ethnic, old time, greasy spoon, whatever. We love a really good meal but we also love a really good hot dog.
I've been trying to read the boards and research but quite honestly I'm overwhelmed and not sure where to start, as I don't know what food groups are really unique to either area, and the board (or maybe just this one) doesn't seem to be as busy as I remember Chowhound being (I've been reading/posting/researching here since well before the days of Chow).
Anyway, I would love to be steered in the right directions - even if you can link to threads for me. Or things like - eat a hot dog in Detroit, Polish food in Cleveland, etc. Please help???? Thanks!
