Our group goes out every Friday for lunch and we're stuck in a rut. We have some "not-so-adventursome" in our group, so we end up at the following, in no particular order or frequency:
Chinatown (right next door)
China Sea (no more since the green duck)
Jorge's on Hancock
Mikado on 183
Indian on Anderson
Help us out.
Lot's of options in the area, even for the un-adventurous. In no particular order (and not judging the quality of the food) and with variety in mind:
Pluckers on 183
County Line on 2222
Waterloo on 2222 and 360
Mesa Ranch on Mesa
Mirabelle on Mesa
Tan My (formerly Tan Tan) on Peyton Gin
Z Tejas near the arboretum
Mrs. B's at Mesa and Spicewood
Pars Deli (Middle Eastern wraps and such)--SW corner of Burnet and 183
Tam Deli (Vietnamese sandwiches and yummy cream puffs)--N. Lamar, just north of 183
Madras Pavillion (excellent Indian buffet)--NE corner of Burnet and 183
Dog Almighty, Burnet, south of Anderson
Elsi's, Burnet, south of Anderson
Tacodeli, North Mo-Pac at Duval/Burnet
Little Deli, in the Crestview shopping center
omg...we ended up at Brentwood again. On the positive side the weather today is absolutely spectacular.
Ah yes. forgot. we do end up at Mesa Ranch and County Line on occasion.
Maru does very affordable, and IMO, very tasty bentos/specials at lunch. While I'm a sushi addict, I'm actually partial to their beef teriyaki. It, like many of their dishes, is a little sweet (which I love). The lunch special comes with miso, rice, tempura (usually a few veg and one shrimp), a small salad, and two pieces of a cali roll.

Billy's on Burnet is also quite tasty. They have a good patio for sitting outside on a nice day.
Yes, I want to know about that, too!
Twin Lion at Braker and 183 does some good food, in particular the Spicy Black Bean Tofu with Vegetables, Lemongrass Tofu and Ginger Tofu. I enjoy their way with tofu, obviously. Their hot & sour soup is good and I like the big bowl of wonton soup with veggies and pork (and maybe shrimp?). They even have a passable chicken & rice noodle soup. I used to get the lo mein there, too, it was good. They have very low lunch prices but you'll need to order the tofu dishes from the regular menu. Their other fare is pretty standard Americanized Chinese, I guess. I tend to stick with the same items that I know I like.
