2 days in Boston with 12-13 yr olds, what eateries not to miss?

Howdy all,

SF Bay Area Hound flying in next week to visit friends in Burlington, VT. Driving down with them on Sunday the 21st and staying at the Midtown in Back Bay until before breakfast early on the 23rd.
Doing a Freedom Trail tour on Monday the 22nd and looking for a good lunch spot afterwards. Quincy Market?
Couldn't find any recent discussions, so I started a new thread.

Budget: $5-30/person
Cuisines: American, Thai, Shellfish, Great Brick Oven Pizza I can't get in CA, Boston specialties, Indian (Our host is a fabulous Italian cook, so we got that covered)
Food more important than atmosphere, but still family friendly.

Don't want to drive, but willing to cab it if it's really special. Otherwise, we'd rather walk. We'll be doing breakfast on Monday at Thornton's since its part of our package.

Places that looked interesting:

Salty Pig on Darmouth
Chilli Duck on Boylston
Shake Shack on Newbury
(They have burgers, custard & my daughter's favorite root beer on tap)
Yankee Lobster on Northern: Is it worth the trip across town?

Also, what/where is the current hometown favorite dessert and can a Left Coaster get a decent pot of baked beans anywhere that doesn't scream tourist?

Looking forward to your replies.
Thanks!
