Where to eat near Oakland Coliseum?

Is there *anywhere* decent to eat near the Oakland Coliseum/stadium/arena? (No need to rehash jibes about Oakland.)

A friend and I met before a game there and drove around and around for 45 minutes, not believing there wasn't anything other than McDonalds and Taco Bell and Denny's... we finally pulled into the parking lot of a Country Kitchen or somesuch, only to find only one car there manned by a guy who told us -- no joke -- that he was there to slate it for demolition. And no, he didn't have any other ideas. Even the hotels (near the airport) didn't have much.

Seems there should be decent-sized before- and after-game crowds, even if the area is pretty industrial. How about a sports bar, even?

Or after-game dining/drinks?
