Chicago to Saginaw and Back Recs needed

Doing the back roads of Michigan on this trip, looking for recs for diners and dives. Going to hit a few coney places and Tony's I-75 but looking for other suggestions. The longer the places have been around, the better. Thanks!

Wisconsin I-94 stop?

Ended up at the Mocha Mouse in BRF. It was breakfast time, and while it was straight-forward, it was a good value. Got a bowl of cheese soup to go, and it was fabulous! Interesting stop - restaurant, cheese shop, wines, gifts, local artisan foods.

Wisconsin I-94 stop?

Have some ideas for a lunch stop between Wisconsin Dells and Eau Claire? Not too far off interstate, either regional "ethnic" or burgers. Thx.

Good source for fresh mozzarella / antipasto ingredients in Portland?

Ditto pastaworks. And I like Barbur World Foods in SW.

(My personal) Best chain pizza rankings

Treb: I don't think we're talking about the same Sammys? Duluth, MN, Iron Range, North Dakota? Never met ANYone who didn't think they were the greatest!

Oh, if we're adding small regionals, then Vito and Nicks II in Chicago for thin crust! http://www.vitoandnicksii.com/ And Sammy's in Minnesota. http://mysammys.com/

(My personal) Best chain pizza rankings

Personally don't care for Uno or Round Table, except when the latter has lunch buffet. Think Papa Murphy edges Papa Johns a bit, for me. Yeah, Little Caesars is pretty bad, except when you're jonesing for the $5 immediately out the door thing. Winco Groceries (west coast) have a pizza counter that is pretty good, whole pie or slice. Pizza Hut is awful IMHO.

Who's been to Eataly?

Yes, sorry, talking about the one in Chicago, which recently opened, and is even grander than the NY one. As far as I know, Flay has no involvement, it's Batali and partners.

4 Days in Portland - Dining for One

Well, to each his own (taste). Granted, Huber's doesn't 'live up' to the current wacky fusion trends in PDX, Swedish/Vietnamese or whatever, but it consistently serves high quality food at a good value, with (usually) meticulous service. Certainly in my top 5.

Not only the polish buffets (around $10 for several courses), but the czech restaurants as well.

Is Mariano's the best grocery store in Chicago?

I like Marianos, and they have just picked up another dozen Dominicks to convert. I'd agree with whomever said H mart for Asia (or fresh seafood). It's a long drive by Joe Caputo in Algonquin is great too.

I've only had American's kit, and was REALLY happy with it. There are coneys in LaCrosse and Duluth, but that's even more bigger farther away than say, Flint. Maybe Milwaukee has one, dunno.
