ISO "normal" but good food in Dublin/Pleasanton

waldrons | Nov 11, 2008 12:22 AM

I'm meeting an old high school friend in the Dublin/Pleasanton area (somewhere near Hwy. 580 for ease of transportation for both of us) for a weekday lunch next week.

I'm not sure about her food tastes (I suspect she is rather unadventurous, however), so am looking for a "safe" (and low-cost) recommendation that's comfortable for her, but good food. When making recommendations, she mentioned TGIFriday's and McDonald's. PLEASE tell me there's something else!!

She did mention she likes Mexican food, so I've looked at other postings, and noted El Balazo, Alberto's Cantina, and Casa Orozco. But their on-line menus looked pretty average to me...

I'd love to try Koi Gardens, but am not sure if she'd like dim sum, plus it might be too expensive. I'm pretty sure Japanese, Korean, Thai, Vietnamese and Singaporean are out!

Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance!
