looking for casual spot near Mission Bay for 15-20 people, at < $20 per head

Please help! We have a monthly meeting at UCSF at Mission Bay, and we normally go out for dinner and beer afterwards. We have typically gone to the Connecticut Yankee, but I am really fed up with their mediocre food and surly service (although they do have Poppy Jasper on tap...). Ideally, we'd go to some place in the Mission, such as El Farolito, but we really need a space where we can have a semi-serious discussion, so most taquerias that I know of are out. The ideal place would be within a 5 minute drive from the new Mission Bay campus, and have some kind of back room where they could quarantine us. Your taxpayer dollars are actually buying our food and drink, so we try to keep our budget pretty small. Places I've considered and nixxed include SF Thai BBQ (can't really get a big table together), Stix (no longer exists), the Ramp (weather ain't so good anymore), Goat Hill Pizza (meeting is on Monday night, and they are a zoo on Monday nights), and Thirsty Bear (we did that once, and really enjoyed ourselves, but we went way over budget). Please help!
