DTW - Oakland County recs for out of towners

I think the Michigan dogs are only upstate ny (adirondacks) because prior to moving here I had never heard of them. Interesting how they got their name though. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michigan...

Calavo Guacamole in Detroit area?

I'm not sure but it looks good. I would try Whole Foods as they have a link to them on their facebook page or Nino Salvaggio...

DTW - Oakland County recs for out of towners

My parents (60s) and brother (30) are coming from buffalo for the weekend after easter. I haven't been out to many places other than chains since moving here three years ago so I'm looking for some suggestions.
They are coming for four days so I'm looking for lunch and dinner suggestions (or feedback) that are pretty close by (Auburn Hills/Great Lakes Crossing) for at least two of those days. I'm not looking for anything fancy but good non-chain restaurants that don't necessarily have to serve alcohol.
Here is what I've come up with..

Friday - Clarkston area
Lunch - Uncle Peter's Pasties (want to try something Michigan)
//independence oaks park
Dinner - Union Woodshop (i've heard was really good, can order bbq)

Saturday - Hamtramck/Detroit/Royal Oak
Lunch - Polish Village Cafe or Polonia (something polish) or Wawel in Troy?
//eastern market, riverwalk, belle isle (will do Tigers game and Slow's in the summer)
Dinner - Cafe Habana or Sangria (something latin or good in RO) Bastone?
//rodrigo y gabriella concert in royal oak

Sunday - A.H./Lake Orion/Oxford?/Rochester?
Lunch - Brunch at home or something with a good brunch not too far from Auburn Hills. I like Zoe's House of Pancakes in Bloomfield Hills but that might be too far.
Dinner - Sagebrush Cantina (i've been here) or other suggestions within 15 mins of the palace. they've been to Red Ox and Rochester Mills Brewery. (no to Post Bar or Hoops)
//pistons game

Monday - ??
Lunch - anywhere
//not sure, might take them to frankenmuth or ann arbor/plymouth or dearborn depending on what we want to do.
Dinner - either Fuji Buffet (Madison Heights) or Korean BBQ (Shilla in Troy)
I've been to both these places and would go back to either. Looking for something asian but with a little variety (buffets) or something unique like how they prepare the food on your table (korean bbq), not interested in the expensive Benihanas.
