the elusive $15 entree

I feel like I eat out all the time in this city and either:
a)go to fine dining and end up dropping more than $100 for 2 people, or
b) go casual, but still end up spending around $25 a person.
I'd like to find the kind of options you get in other big cities, restaurants where you can get delicious food, don't need a reservation, and still get out of there for $20-$30 a person, before drinks. Any suggestions? I'm tired of going to restaurants that are vaguely dirty and have a somewhat fast food air (not naming any names!) and still being charged $13 for a po-boy or some tacos. There are dives that are cheap and good, but I just want a nice mid-level dining experience, somewhere that I can eat food from scratch without breaking the bank.
