Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner recommendations near Love Field?

Hi Dallas Hounds! - I'm coming out there next week on business and am looking for recommendations near Love Field...since that is the area in which we are staying / working. 3 or 4 lunches worth and 3 dinners....and maybe a breakfast or two if I can wake up early enough....our meetings usually start at 7 or 8am. For dinners, I'm not looking for too high end dollar-wise - I'll have work folks with me that likely won't want to spend much...and we can think a bit further afield distance-wise as we'll have rental cars and taxi options available. Lunches and breakfasts need to be fairly close in as we won't have a lot of time. I'm from San Diego, so I probably don't need any Mexican or Seafood recommendations, though some of the people are from the east coast so if there is a truly outstanding Mex place that you were going to recommend before you read my last sentence - go ahead and throw it out there! Thanks.
I certainly wouldn't miss a visit to Celebration Restaurant on W. Lovers Lane not terribly far from where you want to be. Very popular with locals featuring great home style cooking with a menu that always features what's local and, in season.
Also, on the southside of Love Field is Big Al's Smokehouse BBQ. probably not the finest 'Q you'll ever eat but it's damn good and you get plenty of food for the money.
Be sure to ask for "moist" brisket which is cut from the fattier point section. The pork ribs are good, too.
Two places close to where you'll be that we like to frequent are Suze and Howard Wang's at the intersection of Hwy 12 and Midway. I don't think Suze is open for lunch, but Howard Wang's is and has a moderately priced lunch menu.

You're in a great location to get to Lover's Lane where there are a number of restaurants - see Lover's @ Inwood and/or Inwood Village.
BreadWinners for full-on breakfast or healthy (or not) muffins/fruit breads. Call to see how early they open, but I think they serve b'fast all day. http://www.breadwinnerscafe.com
For inexpensive lunches, Chips Hamburgers and you're probably familiar with Jersey Mike's Subs - there's one in the same area.
If you decide to grab something to-go or if the weather permits patio dining, Eatzi's. http://www.eatzis.com/
For lunch or dinner - Rise No1 - http://www.risesouffle.com
Avoid Dunston's Steak House and I think there's a Sonny Bryans BBQ - do not be tempted.
I can only personally recommend Grimaldi's, but look at West Village for (some) affordable dinner options - http://www.westvil.com/dining-nightlife/
Cafe Istanbul is not too far away. Reasonably good Eastern Mediterranean food.
Also down Lemon a bit and a few yards up Lomo Alto you'll find Nonna, one of Dallas two best Italian restaurants. It may hit the top of your price range, not sure what constitutes high end for you, but it is very, very good. Worth stretching the budget for.

I have to apologize for not seeing your post sooner and I made a bad assumption that someone else would've already suggested this place.
5027 West Lovers Lane
Excellent bar scene and a chef-driven menu that you would thoroughly enjoy.
But if you do like an AYCE resto at a low price, I would encourage you to go to Celebration.

Thank you all for your recommendations. They ended up ordering lunches to be delivered to the meetings...and a cooked to order breakfast was included at the hotel...so that just left dinner choices. We hit Celebration and really enjoyed it - a bit of a different experience and everyone was pleased. We also ended up at Humperdink's because of the baseball and football games going on...and actually enjoyed the food there. I pushed hard to get to Neighborhood Services one evening but was overruled by the mob due to convenience and logistics of the people involved...but at least I got to one of the places...next time I'll try others! Thanks.
