Lunch places between Potrero Hill and Mission?

I work near 18th and Mariposa, near the evil Starbucks, and am in desperate search for good, affordable lunch eats in this 'hood. I'm sick of Blowfish and Slow Club, and have tried everything in the area (within reasonable walking distance):
-Jade Cafe: greasy Chinese food, but cheap;
-Mikado Sushi: New place, uneven food; odd-tasting chicken;
-Tacqueria El Tepa: Great, but tired of burritos;
-Tortilla Flats: Okay for diner-type food;
-Evergreen Cafe: Reasonable Vietnamese; decent pho;
-New York Deli: Uninspiring sandwiches, salads;
-I Love Sushi & Teriyaki: The name scares me;
-Universal Cafe: Closed for lunch. :-(

I LOVE Atlas Cafe, but it would be nice to have other tasty options. Would love to hear more recommendations for this area, or even favorite dishes at the above mentioned restaurants (maybe i've just had bad luck at those places?)

Of course, there's a nearby McDonald's, and the Potrero Center is chock-full of chains (Togo's, Jamba Juice, Noah's Bagels, Safeway Deli), but let's not go there...
