I'll second My Place. My parents live out that way and I like to stop there and get something to eat in the car (and spill all over myself) on my way home when I visit.

I have heard a lot of good things about Bad Brad's but have yet to go. I work with a guy that claims to be the inspiration for the guy on their logo and the name of the place. I don't know whether or not to believe him though. He looks EXACTLY like the logo, his name is Brad, and he lives right near the Shelby Township location...

I have not been to the French Laundry in over 10 years, I went there maybe 5 times, and was never impressed, certainly not to the "over rated yuppieness" it receives.

Same for the union, in fact, the last time I was at the Union (we used to frequent for lunch quite often when I worked in Clarkston, when the boss buys I don't turn down free food, even if it is over rated crap) my food was cold, the server sucked, and I vowed to not return. Same for the crappy pizza place next door, I waited a good 40 minutes for a table to eat pizza that I thought was at least a 3.5 maybe a 4.2 out of 10 on the scale of awesome pizza.

I get that people think its cool and trendy and kid rock goes there sometimes and all that jazz, but its quite simply over rated yuppie crap.

I've been to French laundry a few times in the past 2 years. I think it's great food but its always packed.

Go away, I am the one and only person that dislikes both the union and the french laundry. The more of you that do not support my opinion, the more I look like a crotchety old crabby bastard.

On a side note the old lady has been trying to break me down and get me to take her to the French Laundry for dinner/lunch one of these days

If I need a recommendation on a trendy place to eat where I might see a celebrity like sol goode I'll ask sol goode.

If I want good non over rated food, I'll not go to the union.

Anyone ever been to The Oxford Inn for ribs in Royal Oak? Guy at work says they are the best.
