SF Chowhound needs help w/ Jasper, Banff, Calgary restaurants-what do u think of my picks? [Moved from Canada board]

I don't have a lot of meals out but these are what I have planned, 3 of us are going and want to keep cost under $20pp and casual, any type of food, my preference Greek and Chinese or anything good (but cheap and casual):

One dinner in Jasper-Wed:
recommended by chowhounds:

other picks thinking about:
Dine on the ribs and chicken combo ($11.55 U.S./$14.99 C) at Earl's in the Rockies

Earls in the Rockies is located in the heart of Jasper and a “must see” whenever you’re visiting. If all those hours of “ooing” and “aahing” our spectacular mountain scenery has left you hungry, welcome to Earls Jasper restaurant, the home of smiling faces; that easy-going Earls vibe; and a menu that’s second to none for flavourful freshness, from salads to steaks, from tried-and-true favourites, to edgy new fusion tastes. And who can resist earls appetizers and snacks, like Leroy’s Crispy Dry Ribs and Crab and White Cheddar Bake? (You’ll also appreciate the views from our Jasper restaurant dining room and patio. Simply spectacular.) Earls Jasper 600 Patricia Street-2nd Floor
Jasper, Alberta, T0E 1E0
Phone: 780.852.2393

or the curried pork chop plate ($13.80 U.S./$18 C) at Fiddle River Seafood Company. Hound said: "Our favourite is the Fiddle River Restaurant. Terrific seafood and interesting selections"
Fiddle River Seafood Company-
620 Connaught Dr, Jasper 780-852-3032

one Dinner in Banff Thur:
Silver Dragon Restaurant-3rd fl, Park Ave Mall, 211 Banff Ave Banff AB CA 1 403 762-3939
Pleasant decor with skylight and mountain view. Spring rolls, dumplings, black pepper chicken, Peking duck, beef hot pot. Lobster or crab (fresh from the tank) in ginger, black bean, or creamy butter sauce. Desserts--kiwi surprise and mango pudding. Patio in summer. Tables for groups. Entrees $11-$20. Take-out. 11:30 am-10 pm.

Phone # 229-1231
M-Th 11a-9:30p; F-Sa 5p-10p; Su 5p-9:30p

106 3 Avenue SE

Other meals we'll cook ourselves getting supplies at Banff's Safeway.

Any must buys that I can't get in the SF Bay Area and I can take home with me food wise? We're flying in.

Thanks for any help in advance. I'll report back when I come back.
