Picky-eater friendly in Rockville, N. Bethesda?

I'm new to the area, and looking for a restaurant for a family dinner in Rockville, North Bethesda or Wheaton. I'd like to find somewhere with a nice atmosphere, not too expensive (under $25 entrees), and where my picky-eater sister can find something (her general rule is that she'll eat anything that's golden brown- vegatables are bad, plain meat dishes or pastas are ok). Italian and "American" cuisines are usually safe, and she can usually find something at a Chinese restaurant. I'd love to try out La Canela in Rockville, but I'm not sure if she'll be able to find something there. Any suggestions of where we can get good food, but still feed my sister?

  1. Timpano's Chop House in Rockville
    Houston's in Rockville
    Gordon Biersch in Rockville town center

    1. La Canela might be okay... milanesa (basically breaded chicken) and various meat dishes might fit her tastes.

      1. Clydes at Tower Oaks

        1. Bucca Di Beppo on the Rockville/Gaithersburg border might fit the bill. Plenty of options, gargantuan portions, lots of pasta dishes, and lots of stuff that's golden brown and delicious.

          1. I second the Houston's suggestion. Good American cuisine. Even the pickiest diner can find something on the menu. Steak, fish, burgers, chicken, vegetarian dishes as well.
