budget eats around civic center/embarcadero?
just moved to the bay area from nyc and will be having dinner with a friend tomorrow.
any recommendations for cheap eats around the city center/ embarcadero area?
specifically interested in good mexican or diner-ish joints.
re: Sharon S.
Mijita is expensive for what you get, and the food is mediocre.
Maybe if you could be a little more specific about what you mean by "cheap eats" that would help.
There's not a whole lot of decent Mexican downtown. If I were going for cheap eats in the Civic Center area I'd go for Vietnamese or I'd hit Gyro King.

thanks everyone. ended up walking all the way to ghiradelli to have in-and-out... hey, there's none in new york!!!
i will have to try some of the other suggestions though. i should've been more specific about "cheap eats" which for me means $20 or under per person including beverage and tip.
We used to enjoy Absinthe near the Civic Center. It had a nice, reasonably priced 3 course prix fixe, before theatre/symphony menu. Not cheap, but a good value
