Cheap eats, near Metreon.
Looking for cheap eats w/beer, wine for after matinee at Metreon on Saturday. Love all kinds of Asian food esp. Thai, Vietnamese, mid-eastern, Mexican, you name it, I'll probably eat it. $ range: mains up to $15 but would prefer a little cheaper as my even cheaper sister is buying. All suggestions welcome, I will be driving, but would like to do as little of that as possible. thanks!
I actually really enjoy the Thai restaurant in the Westfield Mall - called Coriander Thai cuisine. Osha Thai is also right down the street. Those are two great Thai options within walking distance of the Metreon.
Henry's Hunan on Natoma is delicious and inexpensive. I don't know about the wine selection, but they have Sierra Nevada and a few other beers on draft.

$15 mains doesn't make my list for cheap. Out the door for $15 for dinner is cheap.
B would be closed after most matinees. Thus, I suggest Fang. Decent acohol list, open all afternoon, nice room, most entrees between $12 and $14. Thirsty Bear has small plates and a nice alcohol selection; I wouldn't call it cheap but it does literally fit your specs.
Chaat Cafe has a lot going for it, but not so much with the alcohol.
Tropisueno for good Mexican and strong margaritas would be one of my first choices.
