Traveling from Chicago to Bloomington, IL and Lincoln, IL, need food recs- Newbie!

Hey everyone, I'm traveling with my boyfriend next week (Sat-Wed) to go apartment hunting in Bloomington, Il, possibly Springfield and Lincoln as well. We're flying into Chicago and staying the night, then driving down to Bloomington and Lincoln. I've been stalking the Chicago board so I think I'm ok on suggestions while we're there but does anyone have any suggestions for a few lunch and dinner places in these cities? Our budget is somewhat tight- we'd like to spend no more than ~$10 per person for lunch, and ~$15-30 per person for dinner. Ethnic foods of any type are great and non-chains are of course preferred!

All I've really been able to find is the Bluestern and that seemingly really popular Indian place in Bloomington, but I need more suggestions! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
