Pre-game dinner in BU area
Oopsie - I hadn't noticed that this was another one of those duplicate threads.
The Turkish restaurant is Saray - they're really good, probably the best meal really close to West Campus.
If you're looking more for something quick and cheap, there's Grille Zone for burgers and other sandwiches, T Anthony's for pizza, or the Super 88 food court for a myriad Asian options. If you keep going down Brighton Avenue there's a ton of great places between Packard's Corner and Union Square - it depends of how far afield you mind going.

Sorry for the duplicate posts - my fault. This is a perfect list. I think Brown Sugar or Grill Zone might be the best locations in terms of proximity and timing. I have wanted to try Carlos Cucina for a while but would like to do it at a more leisurely pace.
Thanks to everyone who posted. These were all helpful suggestions.
