Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner around Cobo centre (for autoshow this weekend)

I am making my 2nd trip to Detroit in less than 6 months, I am looking forward to it as I had a new perspective on the city on my last trip. I am coming down for the Autoshow this year, the first few times I came to Detroit were for the show but I didn't get a chance to explore at all. My past trip for an art festival I explored the city and food options more.

I am leaning towards coming down on Saturday and visiting the show either Saturday afternoon and evening or heading down on Sunday. I am going to take a look around here for some food options for this trip but I just did a search for "auto show" and "cobo" and I didn't come up with anything (actually, just realized I didn't change the date range so that might have effected things).

Any suggestions for places to eat in that area which don't take too long to prepare? My favourite food is BBQ when I can find good BBQ but I am open to pretty much anything. My friend is more of a "meats and potato" kind of guy. I see that the Cobo centre itself is launching new food options so we might check it out but I imagine the options will be expensive there.

I am thinking of parking further away close to a People Mover station and using that to get down to the Cobo or there is a chance we will stay overnight at the Marriot downtown (Renaissance centre). Would be open to options on the People Mover line.

Last time around I went to Slows and I really enjoyed it. Probably will hit up another BBQ place this time around (even if not during our time at Cobo) and maybe some other spots I meant to go before (a crepe place not too far away called Le Petite Zinc)

Any suggestions are appreciated.
