Chattanooga suggestions?

Our family (my husband, 11-year old daughter, and myself) is planning a 3-day trip to Chattanooga in early August-I know, not very exotic, but with gas prices as they are, and after shopping (YIKES!!!) for summer clothes for an ever-growing child who can no longer fit into ANYTHING from last year, we are aiming to stay somewhat close to home. Any suggestions for meals that are really good but won't break the bank? (I'm thinking $7-9 each for breakfast, $8-15 for lunch, and $12-20 for dinner, depending on the menu.) Keep in mind, our daughter is pretty adventurous for a "tweener." (She keeps asking when Stoney Knob will have their "grouper atop Italian risotto topped with bleu cheese cole slaw " special will be back.) She loves seafood (grilled, not fried, and especially steamed mussels), Mexican (not just tacos, but really spicy and flavorful items), pasta, GOOD steak (filet mignon or prime rib, only medium rare, thank you very much, no shoe leather meat for her!!!), and lots of different veggies (broccoli, asparagus, zucchini, ANY kind of beans or peas. Wish I could say the same about my "meat-n-taters" hubby, or myself, for that matter.) I'm looking for places where we can push, okay, stagger away from the table and say, "Man, I wish there were a place like that in Asheville!!!" Any suggestions are greatly appreciated, especially for any local favorite "dives", like Mexican, Italian, or diner-type places. I have looked into the riverboat cruises for a lunch excursion, so any input on that would be very helpful as well. Thanks so much for your help!!!
