We're going to be in various parts of Michigan and Ohio for about ten days, and we would love any suggestions for good (cheap) places to eat.
We live in the San Francisco Bay area (Oakland), so we're spoiled for Asian and Mexican food, and so forth, but we're interested most specifically in small, cheap, possibly ethnic food places. Middle Eastern, Korean, barbecue, good burger joints and lunch spots, pubs that serve good food (and beer!), and good breakfast places are all within our interest. Holly grew up in the Detroit area (and her uncle Jac is a poster to this board) so she has some memory of good places to eat but no specifics.
We'll be in Royal Oak MI, then travelling to Yellow Springs OH (Xenia, Dayton), then back to Royal Oak and down to Detroit. We'll have a car and some time to explore.
We look forward to your suggestions -- thanks in advance for the good chow!

PS shout out to BerklyBabe, I think we sold you a Household Searchlight cookbook on eBay!
PPS Just to tell you a little about ourselves, I include a link below to my recent birthday food tour.
