Value for $ in Austin

I just posted below, and had to jump up and go to Sunflower for dinner.

We split: imperial rolls, spring rolls, a small hot and sour soup, and the pan fried egg noodles with tofu and vegetables. Delicious. The total price tag, including tax = $15.70 for two.

Last night I had the chicken enchiladas with chipotle sauce, black beans and rice at Curra's (north) for $6.80, and it was terrific.

At Suzi's Grill on Anderson Lane I get the Double Pan-fried Noodles (with shrimp) for $8.50. It comes with 16 or so very nice sized shrimp, lots of vegetables, and great tasting sauce. You can get it with shrimp, chicken and beef for the same price.

Did you know that at Macaroni Grill two people may order house salads ($1.59/each) and split a pizza or Make-your-own-pasta (which is definitely large enough to split, and they split it for you in the kitchen), and get out for under $12 for two? The salads are really good and the pasta is up to you.

Domestic partner and I eat every dinner out so we like to find great places that are cheap and good.

Can anyone add to this list?
