Thanks to all for your suggestions, you saved me from chain and hotel hell.
Made it to La Palma Chicken Pie Shop - You all so didn't say how cool this place is. Walking in was like going into a time warp. My guess is the only thing that's changed there in 30 years is the age of those working there. Everyone was very hospitable, and the food was solid... and CHEAP. $5.75 for soup, salad, chicken pie with choice of spuds and choice of dessert. That's nuts. Of course it was $30 in cab fare round trip.
Thai Nakorn - Really good food. As good as anything I've had in the SF Bay area. What's up with the flatscreen TV's with surround sound playing movies?
Napa Rose - The setting anjd decor is kind of odd. The service staff was very young, but outstanding. Wone list was solid, but mark up was worse than anything I've seen in SF. Food was excellent across the board.
Thanks so much for the help.
