Please help me entertain a friend who is visiting Coppell next week

A woman I have known online for a few years is working in Coppell next week. I want to take her out for dinner, but there are a lot of requirements, and I got a little overwhelmed looking online. I was hoping someone here could help.

1. We don't want to drive far. I don't exactly know where in Coppell her work is, but I don't want to drive to downtown Dallas. I would like to stay in the area of Coppell. We will be meeting at a time of Bad Traffic, and I would rather just stay on the small roads. I am not ruling it out though. If there is someplace that is a Dallas must-not-miss, I might stretch it to go there.

2. She eats low carb, including a lot of fresh veggies, and good meats. I know she loves good quality food in general. I know she and I agree that iceberg lettuce needs to disappear from all restaurants, for example, so I don't want to end up someplace with iceberg lettuce salads. I know she also likes "fancy" beers, too, but that is a secondary consideration since she doesn't drink much any more.

3. I'm not rich, but I would like to pay. $25 (per person, without alcoholic beverages, but including the tax/tip) is pretty much my upper limit.

Now, it would be nice, but not necessary to take her somewhere unique, but I am not completely opposed to chains, if they really are great.

I have never done this before, and my husband and I don't eat out much and when we do, it is usally on the cheap, so I appreciate any help people here can give. I would like her to have a nice experience. Thanks.
