5 hour layover in Madrid...and I don't want to spend it in the airport

Is this enough time to go to the city center and have a quick (1- 1/2 hr or so) meal? I would love to find a place that is beautiful, historical, and typically Madrid. Mid-range would keep the time factor down, you think? Is this enough time to walk around a bit afterwards?

As an alternative plan, is there somewhere near the airport worth eating at? Parameters are about the same, I suppose.

We are flying in from Tenerife, and flying to Frankfurt or Berlin, if this makes a difference in layover time. We arrive at 3 pm and our plane out leaves at 8 pm. Please don't let me eat airport food!
