Good Cheap eats in Evanston?
I'm going up to visit my alma mater? Any good cheap eats (except Pizza) that I shouldn't miss. I like pizza, I'm just not in the mood
For good ribs, the original Hecky's BBQ comes to mind.

For breakfast/brunch/lunch, we loved the Lucky Platter Cafe - it's video review - http://www.brightcove.tv/title.jsp?ti...
I also miss (weve moved..) prarie joe's cafe (central & green bay road-ish) for breakfast/lunch. there is a geltao place across the street now that is tasty, too....
both are affordable....
A couple of my favorites -
Dixie Bait and Kitchen Cafe - a great spot for breakfast in addition to Lucky Platter
Ruby of Siam and Thai Sookdee - both excellent Thai food -

When I'm looking for a low key affordable place near the NU campus, I usually choose Noyes St. Cafe at 828 Noyes (next to the Purple Line L tracks). Food is good and plentiful, although not outstanding, and the price is right. Staff is attentive with zero uppity attitude. I've been there mostly for dinner, but the brunch menu is good, too. I'm crazy for their enormous Cobb salad (served on a platter) for under $10. Check them out at: http://www.noyescafe.com/index.html
