Lunch between Detroit and Frankenmuth, Michigan

Thank you all so much. I think our final choice will be Laundry. It has a huge menu, and I'm sure my picky sister can find something there to eat. We'll be there on a Wednesday after 1:00 most likely, so I'm hoping for less of a lunch crowd. Wish me luck. Thanks again. You were over the top helpful!

Lunch between Detroit and Frankenmuth, Michigan

You're right. They are not very food-centric! Just someone trying to be helpful which is why I posed the question here. One concern. I live in Florida and have heard nothing but horror stories about Flint. Is that a safe place for two women to have lunch? All your help is greatly appreciated!

By the way, any suggestions in the New Buffalo area??

My sister and I will be driving from Detroit to Frankenmuth and are looking for suggestions to a great lunch. To my sister, that would mean a terrific burger, pasta, steak or a fantastic sandwich. Any suggestions of can't miss places in Michigan? Thanks so much!!!

Help with really picky eaters in Dallas!

I love the idea of seeing "The Herd" at the Stockyards and the cattle drive! Yee haw!! I'm thinking that has to really, really kitchy Texas and lots of fun for us "flat landers"! :-) I've been to Dallas about 5 times and have never headed that way. This is the trip to do it. Lonesome Dove looks good to me. Your thoughts? Love Shack looks fun, but being so close to the stockyards and outdoors, is it smelly???? Other suggestions near the Stockyards? Smelly or not, I'm sure we'll have a great time. Thanks again. Hope I can reciprocate in the future.

Help with really picky eaters in Dallas!

Thank you so much for all the suggestions. I will check them all out. We are spending the night at a Casino in Thackerville, OK and then heading into Dallas. The cattle drive sounds like great fun, and you all have given many suggestions for dinner. I'll discuss them with my travel partners. I love Chowhound!!

Help with really picky eaters in Dallas!

I'm traveling to Dallas and staying in The Colony, but we'll have a car, so traveling isn't an issue. Unfortunately, the people I'm traveling with will NOT east seafood, Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, Texas barbeque, Tex-Mex or chicken! That pretty much leaves me with steak, burgers and Italian. Any suggestions on a kind of unique eating experience with those limitations? I'd like to stay away from the national chains. Love Capital Grille, Mortons, etc., but we're kind of looking for a "Texas" experience. Any help would be very, very much appreciated! Thanks

Looking for the best Chicago Beef near Cape Coal, FL

Dream on! I'm from Chicago and have been in Florida over 30 years. The closest Chicago Beef is at your nearest Portillo's! There's nothing in Florida near the quality you get there! Sorry! I've heard that health codes prohibit "dipping" the sandwich, too! :-(

family trip down to Palm Beach

In early May, you may be in town for SunFest in W. Palm Beach, a huge music event. You'll have to goggle the website. For Burgers, try Duffy's. They're a local chain, but they have the best burgers in town and also have a heart healthy menu. My favorite beaches are in Jupiter. Also, a terrific outdoor restaurant in Jupiter is Guanabana's. They specialize in seafood. Right around the corner from there is The Square Grouper, an outdoor bar with music and entertainment. Staying closer to Palm Beach, there are many excellent restaurants. Good Mexican at Rocco's Tacos. Check out City Place in WPB as they often have great entertainment. Wishing you safe travels!

Bettendorf, Iowa casino trip!

Heading to Bettendorf for a couple of days to do some gambling and visiting with friends. I already know we'll be heading to the Machine Shed for breakfast, but can anyone suggest some good dinner locations in the area? I really would like to get out of our hotel and their restaurants. American fare would be terrific, steaks, etc., or Italian or anything that is really good and worth the trip. Thanks so much!

Cheap but good Sunday Brunch

Definitely will have cars available. I'm guessing less than $30 per person for breakfast or brunch. We are going to Piero's the prior evening for dinner, so I suspect everyone will be pretty full from that!

Thanks for your help!

Cheap but good Sunday Brunch

I'm headed to Vegas with a party of 12, some are senior citizens! While I can easily see paying $40+ for a fantastic brunch, these seniors would never do that, nor would they eat $40 worth of food! Any suggestions near or on the strip for Sunday lunch or brunch that doesn't cost an arm and a leg? American or Italian cuisine would suit them best. Thanks for helping out a foodie traveling with cheap-os! They'd rather put the money in a penny slot machine!

American or Italian Fare in NW Suburbs or maybe downtown

Thanks for recommending Francesca's. I'll check that out.

I did inquire further. I was told no Asian, no sushi, that Italian would be great. These are older folks and are pretty much steak and potatoes kind of folks!

American or Italian Fare in NW Suburbs or maybe downtown

I'll be in the Chicago area next weeks with friends from California. Don't know if they like sushi, Mexican, Thai, Chinese, so I'd like to stick to plain good old American fare or possibly Italian, a nice restaurant, not a beef stand, not pizza, not hot dogs. We'll be staying in the Rosemont, Arlington Heights, Elk Grove, Shaumburg area but would venture into the city it it was worth the effort. Creative and inventive and moderately priced are preferred. Any suggestions for a travelor from Florida with visitors from Sacramento??

Bakery fresh panettone in NW suburbs

Our Christmas would be complete if I could find a bakery that makes its own fresh panettone. Somehow that stuff in the box that is God knows how old is simply unappealing! Panettone is delisicious, but if you ever had it fresh from the oven, you'll never go back to the box! Any input? Northwest suburbs would be great, but I'd be willing to travel a bit for this one!

Palm Beach County closings

What a sad commentary that all these local businesses are going belly up! Add to the list Raindancer, a long established WPB restaurant. I was at their sister restaurant, The River House in PBG last week. Same wonderful salad bar and terrific food. Raindancer will be missed! :-(

Looking for a Fun restaurant in West Palm Beach Area

Boca de Bepe in Wellington is a fun restaurant, a chain, that serves family style out in Wellington. High end fun -- try Boulud in Palm Beach. Best restaurant ever and in the off season, you shouldn't have a problem with getting a table. Over and above treatment and excellent food where they really know how to celebrate a birthday -- Capital Grille in Palm Beach Gardens. Fun atmosphere, relaxed and casual -- Tiki Bar in North Palm Beach, Sailfish Marina in Palm Beach Shores and I also hear wonderful things about The Grill on Peanut Island, but I haven't been there myself.

Chicago to Michigan Casino Trip!

I'm going on a three day Casino trip from Chicago to Michigan, probably as far north as Petosky, with my 90 year old dad. We'll be staying pretty close to the Lake Michigan Shore, NOT going to Detroit, and sleeping at several casino/hotel facilities. Please, please help make this trip bearable by suggestions of some fantastic restaurants along the way. He's 90, so he's not going to like Thai food, Chinese food, Mexican food -- pretty much Italian and steak and potatoes! We'll be there in October. I know some areas are seasonal. Please, please help a Florida girl make this trip with dad a great one!

Thanks!

20th Anniversary steak dinner in Miami!

Hi -- My hubby and I are celebrating our 20th anniversary with a day trip to Miami from Jupiter. I'm looking for a fabulous steakhouse for our dinner in Miami. Even better if it's on the Miami Spice list! Any suggestions???

PBC and Broward caterers for delivered lunches?

My favorite caterer in PBC is Rock Star Catering. You'll have to goole them to find their page. Kyle is a fantastic chef! Don't know how far he'll travel, but he's fantastic!

Need help with family reunion dinner in suburbs

Thanks for your help! It was decided to not go so central and go with White Fence Farm in Bolingbrook, I think. I haven't been there in years, but I'm sure the kids will enjoy it! Thanks again
