Touring SF with family for one day, where to eat lunch?

I have some family coming from Guatemala and we will be touring San Francisco just for one day on Mother's Day.

Of course they want to hit up the tourist spots, Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf, Alcatraz, etc. But I flat out refuse to eat at the tourist traps since I'm a snob. :-D

I don't venture to those areas too often but I used to live in the Mission. I doubt they will want to eat in the Mission and hence, I am at a loss of where to get lunch.

I was thinking eating in Chinatown but I have only been to Great Eastern and another place that has a green awning and I think "Snow" in the name. I want to say Snow Garden or something like that. I'm not sure if there are better places. Any recs?

What are some places near Fisherman's Wharf where we can eat at that isn't going to break the bank and can accomodate 8-10 people?

I need a list of options since they haven't finalized their itinerary so I'm not sure where we will actually be come lunch time or when they get hungry.

Thanks for the help.
