upcoming trip to Munich, Salzburg and Frankfurt

I'll be in Munich, Salzburg and Frankfurt in early October (after Oktoberfest is over). I've read through all the chowhound threads and some other internet resources as well. I was hoping for some feedback on what I've found. In all cases I was looking for local cuisine and atmosphere and ideally entrees under 20E. We never hesitate to travel for food, so recommendations don't have to be downtown, but we'd prefer to stay in the city limits.

Munich 3 dinners. I was hoping to get out of Altstadt for at least one of the meals, if not more.
Wirtshaus zur Brez'n
Wirtshaus in der Au
Andechser am Dom
Der Pschorr
Haxnbauer (I'm looking for great schweinshaxe in particular and I read mixed things, but they seem to specialize)

Any thoughts on those options? Also I'd like to find a great, authentic bakery. I read about Rischart, are there any others worth visiting?

Salzburg 1 lunch. It's gonna be a day trip so all we can manage is an Austrian lunch and probably a bakery stop.
Alter Fuchs
St Paul Stube
Goldener Hirsch (I'm worried this place is too fancy/expensive for what I was looking for, but I couldn't find prices anywhere).

I've read about Cafe Tomaselli (horrible reviews) and Cafe Sacher (once again too fancy?), but nothing really stood out in the my research.

Frankfurt 1 dinner. This is a single night stop before we fly out the next morning. Definitely interested in a traditional apfelwine tavern. I've ready all the best ones are in Sachsenhausen but I couldn't find many recommendations or reviews.
Zum Gemaltehaus

Thanks for all your help. I promise to write up my findings when I return.
