Help in Iowa City!!

Family is in from out of town, and wants to take us out for dinner. Looking for a place in or around Iowa City that has good entrees between $15-$20 other than Devotay (went there last time, they want to try a new place). One Twenty Six, Motley Cow, Linn Street Cafe, Vesta, Givannis, all a little too expensive (their entrees are between $20-$30)...other ideas? Taste on Melrose?? Tuscan Moon? Red Head? Augusta?
Thanks for the help...
Try House of Lords in Coralville on First Ave. Iowa River Power. Mondos on the strip is reopening around the 17th. That might be a good bet. Wig and Pen on the strip also re-open soon. Man, the flood did some serious damage.
Linn Street is a good alternative. You will find the prices in the range you mentioned, although not all on the menu. I am not from IC but always enjoy Linn Street and Melrose. The owner and chef at Melrose is a small town Iowa boy. You would enjoy the "Iowa" experience at that place. I have found that at both spots just ask for something off the menu and they will accommodate your family within your price points.
