  1. The best Oakland County hot dog shack is Hippos in Troy. Have a good time while you're here

    1. Noble fish is in Clawson for sushi but it is only two miles South of Troy. Troy and Birmingham are both pretty upscale areas so "dives" are pretty slim pickings. Far more suburban than "touristy". Then again there's bound to be a fudge shop in Birmingham.
      Local fare in this area is fairly high end.

      1. Hunter House in Birmingham on Woodward for sliders.

          1. Recipes in Troy, for breakfast or lunch. It's on Crooks Rd just south of Big Beaver (16 Mile) on the west side.
