taking college kids out to dinner

We'll be in Chicago in April and will be taking our son who's a U. Chicago freshman and a couple of his friends out to dinner. We usually stay up around Lincoln Park. Our son doesn't want to eat in Hyde Park (nothing great there I guess) and doesn't want Chinese or other oriental food and doesn't want to dress up. We want to give him a good meal but not spend more than 10-15 dollars for entrees (could be several friends...). Last fall we used your excellent suggestions and went to Dona Lolis which was fab, and also noon-o-kebab which was great but too far of a drive, we don't know our way around chicago that well and probably should have taken a highway. Both those places had just the right ambiance for college kids, not intimidating, though noon-o seemed pretty fancy to them. I think they'd enjoy anything european or south/central american or african; since they're nineteen year old boys they need generous helpings and plenty of protein. Any suggestions? Thanks much, and keep up the good work...
