Good, Inexpensive Eats In Dublin/Pleasanton?

With both good AND inexpensive being qualifiers, your options are limited. All I can really recommend is Dean's in Pleasanton for breakfast. Tri-fold menu w/ like 100 different omelettes...and it has the dubious honor of being the ugliest restaurant I've ever encountered. EVER. Regardless, their omelettes are incredible and cheap at $8 (considering you won't have to eat the rest of the day).
Otherwise, everything else in Pleasanton is overpriced & not very exciting....and Dublin mostly has chains.
Tabla in the Trader Joe's plaza in Pleasanton is good Indian.
Bangkok101 in Dublin is good Thai.
I like Little Home for excellent Thai. It's off Santa Rita--in the strip mall by Trader Joes. Also Athens Burgers on Dublin Blvd for gyros. I work out there so these are lunch spots but I would go to Little Home for dinner--sometimes I go there for lunch and bring home dinner for the family. There are a bunch of Indian buffets in the area. My favorite is on Hopyard next to the Chevron right off 580.
Matsu Sushi in Dublin (near the big movie theater complex off Hopyard) is suprisingly good. I'm a sushi-snob and actually think this place has great fresh fish and fun rolls. Its not fancy and its relatively inexpensive. Its where we always go before heading to a movie.
