I've lived in Santa Rosa for 15 years but I rarely eat out for dinner and when I do it's usually Applebees, Adels or Lyons or Jhanthong Banbua(favorite). I want to invite a big group of friends (about 12) out to a place we can all afford (range of $8-$12 per plate). They don't like Thai or Japanese unfortunately, and Flavor is too expensive. I want something other than Pizza. Driving to Petaluma or cities surrounding Santa Rosa is OK.
I hope I'm not asking for too much. Any help is appreciated.
